Hey everybody! Hope you had a great weekend!
I have had a few PM's/emails inquiring about my recent price hike... I was a little confused. Apart from little increases due to material cost, it has been business as usual.
I charge a flat rate based on the amount of steel used in a mono knife, and a per inch value on a damascus knife (pattern specific) Handle materials are the biggest factor, for example, ivory or mammoth will cost more than G10, or a typical burl wood, as mokume will cost more than stainless for bolsters.
It makes me smile to see my knives hold value, and then some. I just need to be clear for future customers, contact me for pricing, as some of the resale prices do not reflect my custom pricing.
Just to add, even though my knives have changed hands, they hold the same warranty as stated to the original purchaser.
