This page is for status for those who currently have a custom order placed.

Q: How can I place a new custom order?
A: The order books for custom knives closed some months back. At the moment, I don't have any plans for opening them back up. If we do, I would notify the newsletter.
Q: I'm on the order list and want to change specs.
A: We're allowing this to be an option all the way up until we make your knife. So long as the options are something which we have available, I don't see why this would be an issue. We will refund you the difference if the new options are cheaper, and will invoice if they are more expensive.
Q: When will my knife order be shipped? (ETA)
A: Part of the reason why I've closed the order books is that I've found it very difficult lately to give accurate estimations for delivery. So no estimation is in stone. However, the below timeline is what I'm shooting for. As a goal, I'm looking to be done with the entire order list entirely by June 20th (end of spring).
The above estimation is a rough generalization, as material availability (which can be affected by COVID) may occasionally require some bouncing around.
Just to clarify: because the above orders range from 6900 to 7857, it may seem that we have nearly a thousand orders to fulfill; we do not have nearly that many custom knives on order. Most of the order numbers are small things which have already shipped (like obenaufs, bucksaws, sheath orders, invoices for order changes, etc.).
Q: Order cancellation, selling my order slot, or purchasing a slot when someone backs out:
I think that should have answered any questions. In the meanwhile, I'll be posting photos of finished custom knives and work-in-progress to instagram and facebook.
