- Repair / Restoration
I customize each knife individually by hand, no two are the same. If you have a special job with special requirements, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If for some reason I cannot do the job, I will tell you up front! There is a wait before you get your knives back, as I am always in the shop rebuilding a knife for someone, and I work on them as I get them. There will be an estimated 5-7 day wait at current before I can ship the knife back to you. The size of the job also effects how fast the turnaround will be. Prices vary upon the size of the job and the amount and types of material that will need to be used. If I do not have a particular type of handle material in stock, I can order it.
I use only the highest quality materials in my work to assure the best quality.
If it comes from the Ratnest, you can bet it's a good one!
I can embellish your factory made knife with new handles, filework,stippling ect. The possibilities are endless. I have a large variety of hardwoods to choose from, including burls. I can do filework on your knife, patterns vary-pleae email me for examples or specify a known pattern. Stippling can be done to the bolsters to give it a textured look, the entire bolster can be done or patterns can be done. I mark all the knives I customize inside the liner, so it does not detract from the looks. It will also come with a certificate of authenticity featuring a picture of the knife and hand signed by me when you get your knife back. Just email me with what you would like done and I'll quote you a price,estimated wait, and to see if I have all the mateirals needed in stock or if I'll need to order a special handle material.
I can repair and/or restore your knife. I restore both fixed blades and folding knives. Repairs are done to the customers requests, replacing or patching a broken scale, fixing a broken point, replacing a blade ect. With restoration I go through the entire knife replace/repair broken or worn parts, and try to make the knife look the best it can, I would not reccomend this process for knives that have great sentimental value, a simple repair would be more appropriate. Prices vary greatly on the extent of the damage, please contact me with a photo of the knife in question, showing in detail the damage and what you would likje done and I will quote you a price or let you know if I have the parts to complete the job. If you aren't in a hurry I can hold your knife and scour my sources for the correct parts to repair your knife, this can take a while. Don't hesitate to email me.
