Over the years I have approached my ordering process in several different ways. A few years ago, my custom orders had gotten to the point where I was over two years wait for one of my custom knives. That was a challenge for me, but also for my customers. It's hard to wait that long for a knife and often your tastes as well as mine will change over that time. So here's what I'm doing to try and get you a knife from my shop with as little wait as possible.
I make several Standard Models, from EDC's to Hunters to Military and Kitchen knives. These knives I make in small groups a couple times a year, so you won't have to wait years for many of the knives I make. I am always adding new knives to the list of the ones I make as standard models. If you look at the drop-down menu under Galleries, you can view the standard models I make. If you'd like to make sure you get a certain model next time I make them, email me and let me know. I don't take deposits. I'm happy to take your word on it.
I also make one-of-a-kind knives, but these are primarily knives I make as creative expressions and I don't take orders for them. These are knives I want to make and often include new things I want to try, different materials I want to incorporate. The knives shown in my Gallery are examples of past work but most will never be duplicated.
The best way to get one of my knives is to sign up for my newsletter. I send out an email when new knives are available, so you if you're on my newsletter list you wont miss new knives or class dates as they're listed.
Also follow me on Instagram for daily photos of work in progress, etc.
