Ive tried to contact B&B a couple times now with no response. My box has kept the same status of "being prepared" for about an entire month now. I shouldve gotten my box by now and ive been looking forward to it. Im cancelling due to lack of communication. *edit*
I recieved two boxes. With the exact same cheap stuff. I subscribed specifically for a cool knife or flashlight. But now i have two cheap medkits... this company still hasnt gotten back to me. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. LITERALY NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.
What a waste of money. I bought 3 of these boxes for my boys for Christmas and I believe I paid too much for the 3 little items I was sent.
Very disappointing not at all worth what I paid for
I want to return, as it was not the gift I wanted to give.
Been with barrel and blade for a few months now and I've only been disappointed with one of the boxes, not because it was a bad box but because I live in the desert and it was a fishing box. Other than that they have been great! Had an issue with shipping with my first box but they made it right and then some.
I never received my box. I have left a message and no response. I'm really disheartened about this
Got my first box yesterday. Wasn't aware that they first send a welcome box for your first box since I got the teaser email showing a backpack but anyways I opened it and found a plate carrier and several accessories. The problem is the value they assigned. I spend over $100 for this box shipped and I can go and individually buy all the items for around $95. Complete rip off.
I was so excited for my husband to recieve this box, it didnt ask for any specifications as to what we use, have currently or will have in the future. It mostly shows universal gun items/gear and knives for outdoor activity so I didnt think much of it. Our first box arrive and we received amazing items, but we can only use one of the items, the utility belt. We dont have a small firearm, we have rifles. We love the outdoors and shooting but we have not gotten small firearms as of yet and dont know when we plan to. Very disappointed that there was no questions to somewhat see what customers have already so they're able to use the items. Nothing but the box itself has been opened, yet there's no return option. I'm really considering canceling this just due to the fact that we may receive something again we wouldnt be able to use. Customer service was contacted and the first person to answer was not very courteous at all, the second one was nicer and explained how to cancel. Very disappointed that theyre not standing behind their customers as much as they do their products...
So I have to say I'm generally a hard critic on gear; I use it on the pro level. I was somewhat skeptical of this box but wanted to give it a shot.
Know that if you order is box, you will be waiting for a little bit. I ordered it on the 21st thinking I would get it sometime around the first and I ended up having to wait until the following month.
With that being said, I'm impressed.
I expected a "starter box" with a plate carrier but instead got the current months box, the pistolman themed one.
Individually the contents would have been between 20-30 dollars each; my price was 95. For one box, I got a duty belt with belt keepers, a drop leg holster, a pistol soft case, shooting gloves, and a multitool for cleaning and repair. I feel like the value of what you pay matches what you get very much. If you're thinking about it, do it! You won't regret it.
Ordered on the 3rd. Site says order during the 1st week of the month, ship in the 15th. Not only did that not happen, they blamed cratejoy for the misinformation, even though it is after logging into my b&b account that I got this bad info. They continued arguing, rather than try to make things right. I canceled my 1st box and my subscription. Good luck
It's great to see in this crazy world that a company is sending out good quality items to help keep me and my family safe. Keep up the great work!
Exceeded value paid and expectations
Not a great box.
Barrel & Blade was everything I wanted. That's guys.
I’ve been subscribed for 5 months now, I was skeptical of the whole monthly subscription box, but Barrel and Blade is one that is the worth the money to me. I’ve yet to get a box of useless crap, or felt like I’ve gotten ripped off. 5 out of 5 will be recommending to buddies.
Ive been a level 2 subscriber for roughly two years. I have also been a subscriber to many other well known boxes and have canceled all of them except for barrel and blade. They don’t send you filler items, no overpriced in house branded stuff. they send you gear that you can and will use. You will get innovative items that you haven’t heard of along with high quality blades.
Barrel and blade delivers each month on time with great gear. You won’t be disappointed!
I've been subscribed for a few months now and I can honestly say that they try really hard to listen ri their subscribers. If something doesn't come out like expected, they'll make that change. Boxes normally come with everything that's on the card, if not, a quick message and it's fixed. I've used everything I've got in the boxes within weeks.
I love this box would recommend to others.
