If not, we can handle the details through email, over the phone or in person if it's feasible to meet. The process starts when you CLICK HERE and send me an email. I guarantee that your information will be held private by me. Please read the privacy note to the left.Process
If you know exactly what you want, you'll need to include 6 things in your message . (1) the series number and/or name, (2) the choice of materials, (3) the shipping address be sure to include your AREA CODE, (4) preferred method of payment, (5) preferred shipping method, and (6) do you want the order insured. That's it. Then I will get back to you within 24 hours of receiving the message confirming shipping, pricing and payment details. Payment
If you prefer face to face or phone contact, just include your (1) phone number and (2) a best call time indicating when I can contact you. I will call you at that time in the next 24 hours from when I receive the message.
If you have questions or special request, just include contact information, either phone number or email address and I'll get back to you within 24 hours of receiving your message.
Note: You will receive an automated conformation email shortly after you click send. If you don't receive the auto conformation email, the request may not have gone through. Please contact administration at the bottom of any page and report the problem or try again.
I can accept paypal, check, money orders or cash (no cash through the mail of course). If your selection is in stock, I will usually ship the knife within 2 business days. If it's not in stock, you do not have to, and I don't want you to pay for the knife before I start making it. As soon as you place your order I will begin making your custom knife. And when it is nearing completion I will send you a request for payment invoice. Delivery
If the knife you select is in stock you will receive it within 2-7 business days from confirmation of payment. Depending on shipping option you choose. If not, it may be as little as 2 weeks or as many as 6 weeks, depending on back log. But it's seldom more than 4 weeks. Shipping
You pay shipping unless otherwise specified. Shipping is USPS Parcel Post 2-7 days or USPS Priority 2-4 days at your discretion. Insurance is also your choice. I do not charge stocking fees on orders. You pay what I pay unless there are extraordinary shipping conditions. You can calculate shipping by CLICKING HERE and entering 42211 in the Ship From field and your Area Code in the ship to field. One of a Kind Customs
As you'd expect, payment and delivery of One of a Kind Knives is a special case. Payment WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED until the final design has been approved and 100% of materials choices are completed. Except under certain conditions, as determined by the maker. That's me. If I determine extraordinary materials or request are involved, I may require a good faith deposit.
Why? To protect the client, me the maker and our families. Plain and simple. Designing and making a One of a Kind Knife can be a lengthy process. Things happen. If I accept a commission and circumstances conspire to stop me from completing the knife, none or only minimal good faith money has to be accounted for by my loved ones. And the other way around for the client. And then there's that pesky artistic differences problem. Until a design is agreed upon, you can never be sure you can work together. Once the design process is over, making a knife can be a relatively quick and smooth procedure.
