|Custom Knife Orders
I currently have a waiting period for knives of almost 4 years, so I need to stop taking orders for knives for the time being, as I just can't offer a relatively accurate time for delivery anymore or put a price on my work and materials with that advance.
I've been thinking a lot about this and I believe it's the right thing to do at this time. I honestly can't believe that I have that much of a waiting time myself, I used to read about makers with a 5 years waiting time and think "whoa, that's crazy!" and now I realize it's not that crazy after all.
This will also give me more free time to come up with new materials and designs and techniques. I love to do "my own stuff" and I have had this area neglected for a long time. Be prepared to be surprised with lots of new things I have in mind!
What does this mean in terms of my current work and forums involvement? Nothing really.
All current orders will be fullfilled, I'm not retiring or anything like that, just stop taking orders for a while until I shorten the waiting time a bit. Once that gets accomplished, I will resume the order taking again.
I will continue to post finished pieces and tutorials on the forums as usual, and I still take orders for Jewelry, EDC Tools and Lanyard Beads. Current waiting time on those ranges from a couple months to a year, depending on the item in question.
And since I will have more free time, I expect to put more available knives of my design for sale on the forums and on the Available section here on my website.
I hope you understand and agree with this decision.
