Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

About the Maker

Tendick, Ben
Tendick, Ben

"My name is Ben Tendick, and I am BRT Bladeworks, located in beautiful Eugene Oregon. I am a full time knifemaker, making custom/handmade knives in many styles. I started making knives back in October of 2010. Most of my work is 100% sole authorship. From blades, to handles, sheaths, and heat treat I do it all. On certain projects, such as Tomahawks and other difficult to cut parts, I will have a local waterjet company cut the profile of the blades for me."

Maringer, Tom

Tom Maringer made knives and swords professionally full-time from 1977 to 1994, completing about 910 blades, of which some 69 were over 18" in blade length and thus were classified as swords. During the 1980's and early 1990's Tom's work, primarily swords and daggers, were frequently shown in Ken Warner's Annual Knife Editions Books. Tom is well known for his swords, wire-wrapped handles and Kydex® sheaths. He quit making swords and knives in 1994 and went on to other types of work.

Carey, Kyle

My name is Kyle Carey, I am 18 years old and am the youngest child of Peter Carey the knifemaker. My dad and I spend a lot of time in his knife shop especially during the summers when I'm not in school and not wakeboarding or dirt bike riding. I've always helped my dad in his shop or the garage working on cars, motorcycles, boats or his welding equipment and most recently helping him with his knives. My dad has taught all his kids to be able to work with our hands, to work hard and to take pride in our work. I help my dad in his knife shop by cutting out folder frames, making pocket clips and learning how to run his equipment. This summer my dad and I started a project knife called the "Carey-Dashi" styled after a Japanese Kiridashi, I do most of the work on the knife except grinding the bevel, something that I will soon learn and my dad performs quality control on my work. In the future we plan on working on new designs that we can work on together and to help me make a little extra spending money.I have been around knives since I was a little boy hunting and fishing with my dad and grandpa and hope to be able to contribute to my dad?s ideas for future knives."
