    Mr. Gray posted a short 12/2/19 update on the AA Forge website stating that he was “laying out the last of the full pay orders”. I noticed that he deleted the 1/02/19 update after adding this new one.

    I am still waiting on my refund and Mr. Gray has yet to respond to my email sent almost two weeks ago.

    Hope is eternal.....may take some twists and turns and tangents, but let's hope this year is a good one. I hear your frustrations.

    This forum looks dead, but customs have been posted on AA's social sites, some progress there.

    Not dead, just as I have said many times on here I’m far to busy to be bickering back and forth. I have laid out what I’m doing many many times and there is no point to the constant back and forth. Anyone that has questions or wants an update should be contacting me directly as I have stated many times before. My third son was just born a couple weeks ago, so I’m a bit behind on emails, but I will get back to any I receive. Orders are being finished much slower than I want, but they are being finished on a regular basis and will be done shortly.

    I do think that there has been more than enough time to complete the list. There should be no excuses or blaming lack of production on things that happened 2 years ago, espicially considering that AA Forge is selling knives through their website on a regular basis.

    Taklamakan, the image didn’t upload. I’m glad that you finally receive your knife. There might be hope that I see my refund soon.

    Mgray34, I believe that my refund will be the final order to be fulfilled in the custom order list. The money (almost $600) will be given to a fund to buy clothes for less fortunate children.

    Glad you got it worked out, but, it's still hard to believe AA Forge couldn't knock out one or two knives to complete your order...

    Mr. Gray seems to have opened the books again, for full payment upfront. He gives delivery dates ranging from 4 to 12 weeks on Kwaikens while he still has custom orders to complete. He still has January deposit orders and Nomadic Bushcrafter orders to complete. I hope these Kwaiken orders don’t go out before his other responsibilities. After three plus years, I would expect to get my refund before Kwaikens go out to customers. Remember, the customer order list was almost completed in March. Unfortunately, that March was last year.

    Did you receive your knife or a refund from AA Forge?

    I guess the old list is complete, because from the email I just read, the books are open and custom orders are being taken again.

    Custom Orders Open

    Subscribers,

    Announcing the opening of our full custom order books!!!

    What's been on my mind for awhile now is to go back to making full custom work the main goal or priority of our business, and after much prayer and thought that is exactly what we are going to do! What this means is we are going to be transitioning away from our Friday listings of available ready to ship knives and instead put full force back into custom orders which means faster turn around times and many more options. Other than the occasional available knife for showing off new models, features or a little creative freedom the main way to get a knife from me is to place a full custom order!

    Before placing an order please ready in full the Custom Order Terms page and check out the estimated quote times at the top of the Custom Order Models page. The quote is only an estimated guess and if we get more orders than anticipated it will be updated ASAP!

    To place an order for a custom that is just right for you simply go to the Custom Order Models page and pick the model and features you like!


    Thank you to everyone for all the support over the years, we couldn't do this without you all!

    No, the custom order list from 3 years ago is not complete. I knew Mr. Gray would open the books up at this time.

    Looks like it's only a $50.00 deposit with the balance due upon completion. Not too bad. Hopefully, this will work better for all involved.

    I think it’s easy to see where my order stands.
