I am setting up a promotion that will give a discount to knife makers, handle makers and their customers.
The purpose of this is to allow knife and handle makers to give their customers a larger selection of stabilized handle materials without being limited by the cost of a large inventory.
This will also save both the customer and the maker a lot of time that would be spent sending emails and photos back and forth.
The customer will be able to select exactly what handle material they like best without being limited by what the maker has on hand.
A volume discount will be applied to what is purchased by applying a discount code provided by the maker.
The handle material can be shipped directly to the maker.
At the moment there are about 250 different pieces of knife handle wood in our web store. The web store is at burlsource.us
In the next few weeks the inventory will be increased by a few hundred pieces with my goal being to maintain an inventory in excess of 500 pieces. Most of the wood is stabilized. All of our stabilizing is done by K&G. One of the very best for stabilizing knife handle wood.
My goal for this program is:
To save money for both the customer and the maker.
To make things easier for everyone.
....and, of course to see my knife handle wood on more knives.
If you have any ideas how to make this program better please feel free to post your suggestions here in this thread.
If you are a maker who would like to be included in this program, I would like to hear from you.
