Creating Your Own Customized Knife

Come to the shop and create your own customized knife.  Price is based on design and options.  The process is:

  1. Design the blade on paper

  2. Transfer the paper design onto cardboard to ensure it is a working design

  3. Select the handle material

  4. Select any liner material desired

  5. Select the pin material

  6. If a sheath is needed, design basic sheath style, dye, and thread

All custom orders require 50% deposit of quoted price to be paid before work begins.  Delivery depends upon current workload, but usually takes from 3 months up to a year depending on design.  Once work begins, periodic updates will be emailed with pictures showing the progress of the knife through completion.
