FAQ

Q: How do I order a Knife
A: Email me with details about what you'd like. Materials and finish are maker’s choice. If you’d like to pick your materials there is an additional $50 fee. Damascus or san mai steel options are available at an additional cost discussed at time of order. Once we’ve settled on a price, a $100 non refundable deposit is required to be put on the books the order. Balance of the knife is due before shipping and must be paid within 5 weeks of the time I contact you unless other wise discussed- I can be flexible, but communication is required. Knives are tools used for cutting, slicing, and chopping- knives are not pry bars or screw drivers and such use will void my guarantee to fix any problems from normal use. Care instructions will be sent with each knife.

Q: What type of steels do you use. 
A:  I use high carbon steels- predominately 52100 high carbon steel and w2 tool steel. Other steels occasionally used are Hitachi blue, 1095, 1084, 1080, 1075, 5160, and o1 tool steel.  

Q: Do you have any knives in stock?
A:  I occasionally have one or two knives in stock, but most knives are made to order.

Q: How long is the wait for my knife
A: It depends on how far down the list you are. I can usually give an estimate at the time of order, but it’s just that. Making great knives takes time, and it’s best not to rush the process. Once your knife is started I’ll send photos and updates as I go.
