WARRANTY / DEFECTIVE MERCHANDISE

All products are guaranteed for my life. I will repair or replace anything if there is a defect. This does not cover normal wear and tear. All knives get dull. If there is a problem, please contact me and we will discuss options. Please note that the sheaths are not covered by this warranty, if they happen to separate, just put a bit of PVA on them. I want you to enjoy your knife or tool for the rest of your life, and am committed to resolving any problems amicably. 

 

RETURN POLICY

If tools are not altered or damaged, I'm happy to give you a full refund minus 10%. If you decide you just do not like a knife, but it has been used, I will take it back minus an additional $40.00 fee for regrinding and resharpening. If the handle of a knife is dirty or altered there may be additional charges. Returns must happen within 30 days of purchase. Let me know if you are going to send something, though.

 

DOMESTIC SHIPPING

USPS Priority mail. Flat rate $9 + $1 per item. So the way I look at it, it is cheaper to buy lots of stuff.

 

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Currently, there is not an easy way for me to do this online. Contact me, and I will let you know shipping costs and arrange payment using a credit card or via paypal. Fair warning, for micro-retailers like me, large and heavy items get quite expensive to ship. I usually add $7 on top of actual postage estimate to cover heavy duty packing for international shipping and filling out customs forms.

 

PAYING BY CHECK

Contact me if you would like to pay by check. I will calculate the total price for you. Then you send me a check. 

 

PAYING BY CASH

Schedule a time to visit. I'll give you a tour of the Cloisters Museum near me then buy you a beer. Maybe lunch or dinner if you buy a lot of stuff.

 

PAYING WITHOUT MONEY

Let's talk. Maybe we can trade or barter something.

 

OUT OF STOCK ITEMS

Once the used items are gone, they are gone.  If you want a new item that is out of stock,  contact me and I will let you know how long it will be out of stock.

 

TEST DRIVE

Everyone is welcome to visit my studio in northern Manhattan and try out the knives. I make all of them by hand, and especially the ones with the wood handles vary. It is best to pick out one that feels right. Get in touch to schedule.

 

RESHARPENING

I am happy to regrind and resharpen any leather paring knife. Many people do this once a year, and just strop their knives in between. Ask me for turn around times, and a good time to ship.  Knives I have made will have a factory fresh edge.  If it is not a knife I have made, I will do my best, but often the steel quality is unknown, so the result may be less than perfect. Generally cheaper knives are cheaper for a reason. That said, often older knives are made from quite good steel. But sometimes it is best to preserve older knives in their original condition.

 

LEARN TO SHARPEN

I also teach classes on knifemaking, sharpening and other topics. Information is posted here:  Workshops
