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

Hawkins, Rade

I was born in Cherokee County, Georgia and I have always lived in Georgia, except for a brief stint in the Navy. I started making knives in 1970, and in 1976, I joined the Knifemaker's Guild. I make all types of knives from: folders, fighters, hunters and fancy collector pieces. I am a voting member of the Knifemakers Guild, the American Bladesmith Society (Journeyman Smith), the Ocmulgee Blacksmith's Guild, the Flint River Knife Club and the National Rifle Association. My first knives were mostly hunting knives with an occasional Bowie thrown in. I use both the stock removal and forging methods in making knives. I flat grind and hollow grind. I prefer to use stainless tool steel for all of my non-forged blades with either a flat or hollow ground surface according to my specific application. My best edge holding stainless tool steel is 420-V, second is 440-V. These two steels are very difficult to work with, but they provide superior edge holding and corrosion resistance (traits that I demand in my finished designs). My favorite stainless tool steel is 154-CM. It holds an edge very well and takes a lot of abuse. I also like to work with Damascus steel, both stainless and carbon. I prefer the stainless Damascus due to its corrosion resistance. I do not make my own Damascus. I purchase it from the top makers around the world. I do my own heat-treating and then send the blades to a commercial firm for 24-hour cryogenic treatment. For handle materials, I use a variety of materials both natural and man-made; almost anything you can imagine. Rade passed away in 2014.
