    Yep.... those folks in Finland are offering 10% off in appreciation of USA veterans. Code is HONOR18 and it is good until Nov 14. (Last year they gave free shipping to the USA, so if you are getting more than $100 worth -- sooooo easy to do there -- this is a better deal.)

    My only connection to them is as a satisfied customer.

    It is on all orders until 11/14. It just ends up being a better deal than last year if you get more than 100 bucks worth. ($9.99 shipping to U.S. addresses vs 10%)

    They sell some nice knives and such.

    Not sure if the budget fits that jarvapukko (I know I misspelt it, sorry) but that is one of the better knife and deals out if that style is something ya want.

    Heard nothing but good stuff about em so for what it's worth I'm appreciating them doing this.

    they seem to value having Americans as customers.

    @allfatherodin it shows as 10% off for me as well. Maybe it's only 10% off to US addresses?

    Weird, HONOR18 doesn't work for me, either in the US. [EDIT] Worked this morning as of 7:00 EST. Thanks!

    It didn't work on the order I placed Sunday night. I contacted them asking for a correction but haven't heard back yet. If this was good for Monday only I'm not going to be happy - they sent out the code on Saturday and only said that it was valid through the 14th, not that it didn't start until the 12th...

    It looks like they dropped the ball on this one.

    I had problems at first and reached out to them and they said they were having technical difficulties. HONOR18 is working now, I just tried it. You enter it under payment info where there is a space to insert gift card or campaign code. Then you type it and click use. I don't think it works on items already on sale. They have some awesome stuff.

    And they got back to me and refunded the discount amount.

    That's not the first issue I've had with their website but I gotta say, their customer service is stellar, hassle free. I like this company.

    Um, one final note from me on Varusteleka…

    If you buy something from them, make really really sure you're gonna want to keep it, not return it. Their return policy is pretty hassle-free but there's one catch - you have to pay for the return shipping. And they're in Finland.

    They may offer $10 shipping to the US but don't think you can send it back for around that price. I looked at returning one item, weighs just over 2 lbs. Best price from USPS was $35.25. Wow, for a $50 item, not really worth it, I'd only net $15 back. So let's check out the other big boys, UPS / Fedex / DHL.

    On average about $150. :eek:

    Guess I'm keeping that item... I'll learn to like it.

    Or you just list it here for the same money and someone will want it.

    Well, you're in Finland. I'll sell it to you for $50 plus $150 shipping. Deal?

    They’re having a Christmas deal right now. I don’t know how long it lasts, but if you spot the pig elf, he’ll give you a 10% off code (Christmas2018). I’m sure it’s not secret. Plus I received $2 off a Skrama for being a “Campaign “ item(?). Anyway, I got the Skrama shipped for $63. The hard part is waiting for the only 3 they seem to add to stock everyday. They go extremely fast!
