    Disclaimer-


    • I reserve the right to refuse to do business with anyone I choose for any reason I choose.

    • I will do my best to make the knife you desire, however if it does not fit my brand image or I just do not like the material I will not make it! I feel this is the best policy to adopt for the buyer and the maker. I do not want to make something for someone I did not enjoy making or I thought was unappealing to the eye. (Just being upfront and honest)

    • A 25% Non-refundable deposit is required to place a custom order. Paid immediately once I confirm your order via PM, I will generate an invoice through paypal the deposit and all subsequent Payments will be through the invoice. (The deposit will be refunded however if something happens and I am unable to deliver the knife)


    • Once the knife is complete and ready to ship the total of the remaining balance will be due within 48hrs of delivery of the invoice reminder prior to shipment.

    • Orders will be completed in groups in as timely a manner as I can without sacrificing quality.

    • I will not promise anyones build by Christmas. Some of you will receive your knife by then. I will take the orders on a first come first serve basis but will organize them in a way to complete them all in a more efficient and timely manner. (If you are looking for a Christmas gift then this is not your thread, please buy from what I have or will have available on my website.)

    • I will not make alterations to the profiles.

    • You must be a Gold level member and able to send and receive PM's on Bladeforums

    • First come first serve! Please claim a spot like in a normal sales thread

    • I will only invoice the first 30-40 after that you will be place on a waiting list unless you decide to withdraw. I will try my best not have any of these invoices outstanding for more than 90 days. After I have completed or close to completing the invoiced orders individuals on the waiting list will be contacted and invoiced and place at the top of the next list.

    • No proxies allowed, the person who claims a knife is the person who will pay. What you do with it after you receive it is your business.

    A few other notes before I pop things off here in about 40 minutes. Based on questions that have been coming in. Antique pins and tube are available but in extremely low quantities. I do not see being able to replenish any time soon. Antique Canvas Micarta is at a very low supply as well and do not foresee being able to replenish that either. I only have the thickness available for small knives. Mini Mamshi and under or a thinner handled Warthog. All of this is on a first come first serve basis. If I run out before I get to you you may want to think of an alternative just in case.

    If you are looking for DIW or Desert Iron Wood it is important to make the distinction between Figured, and Burl. There is a price difference.

    I will not make any knives with burlap micarta, nothing against the material. I just prefer not to use it at this moment.

    Your best bet for getting on the list is to stick with. Woods, Canvas Micarta, G10's and Carbon Fibers or any combination of those.

    I wish everyone luck!
