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

LeGare, Tim (Stone Knife Forge)

Tim has been making knives for 30 years, starting in his grandfather’s garage in 1989. Using his grandfather’s bench grinder, he would regrind old kitchen knives, butter knives, old screws and nails, whatever he could find, and fashion them into rough knives. He made his first knife handle at the age of 16, and then became a granite fabricator to make a decent living for his family. In 2007, he started sculpting stone knives out of chunks of scrap granite, which lead him to name his small, humble shop the “Stone Knife Forge”, which it is still named today.

Tim realized that stone knives could easily shatter, which lead him to start experimenting with steel, actually dismantling the swing set his children had outgrown, and turning that steel into several different knife blades. This is when he learned to bevel, shape, and heat-treat the blades. He continues to make knives out of stone, as well as quality handmade stainless steel knives with a variety of handle materials, including granite, Micarta, and many natural woods, even incorporating wood from trees in his own backyard in Florida. He is open to suggestions for custom pieces.

Tim works by himself in a very primitive, old master tradition, with very little equipment, fashioning his knives the old-fashioned way. Everything from start to finish is done completely by hand, using mostly blood, sweat, and tears, and raw bars of steel. His shop is an old rundown garage in his backyard, with approximately $400 of equipment, and his forge is an old Weber grill with a handmade bellows. All of his knives are assembled with threaded pins to increase the durability of the knife and the handle. He has also made many of the threaded pins by hand.

Tim is self-educated in the science behind the chemistry and molecular composition of steel, and what it takes to make it yield to his will. He has a beautiful collection of his work, and has mainly gifted his creations to family and friends, including some handmade pieces of custom jewelry made from wood, granite, and stainless steel.

All of his knives carry a lifetime guarantee, and he rigorously checks his blades, including a file test for hardness and various chopping, cutting, and toughness tests.

The difference between Tim’s knives and other knife-makers is that he is sculpting knives by hand, much as an artist would create a piece of art, instead of using expensive machinery and several employees. Many knife makers today are more machinists than they are artists. So therein lies the difference. Each knife that Tim creates is truly a one-of-kind piece of art. We hope you will enjoy them as extremely functional pieces of art as much as Tim has enjoyed creating them for you.
