DJ has always had good comms. Had a GITFO-DA that got pushed back a couple times. At least one got messed up in the coating process. I now also have one of the Boker GITFO's, which, while obviously not as nice, is pretty good for the price point and availability. Hopefully DJ gets a good cut from those sales, as for my uses anymore, I'm done with expensive knives. I've got a Kiku DB Police, and a AK GITFO-DA...anything else is going to be disposable (relatively).
