After looking over the work I have to do yet, I have decided to do a prebuy for the paring knives. This will be for parings with a single handle material. I have two model parings the original and the new one. The steel choices are AEBL, or carbon Damascus, or stainless Damascus. The cost for the AEBL is $110 shipped ($120 international) and for the Damascus $180 ($190 international)
For the prebuy, I am asking for a $50 deposit for each knife you order, even if it's a Damascus one. Please Paypal your deposit to firstname.lastname@example.org with your forum name, so I can keep track of everyone. Also please send me a pm with your handle wood choice and what model and material you would like. Please, no buckeye requests, unless you can provide the material yourself, I am out of it right now. If you wish to provide handle material for you knife I'm fine with that, and I'll give you some credit on the final payment. I will begin making them November first and will begin shipping them the week after. It will be first come first finished.
In the meantime I will be finishing my Damascus order and completing the knives on my waiting list. I will also be working on a batch of Damascus for kitchen knives, so I have some stock to work with.
I decided to do this to fill some recent requests and also to get some Capitol together to buy steel and handle material, my supplies of both are running quite low.
It will also be fun to make some knives again, after a whole summer of making Damascus.
