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.

Tactical Kitchen Knives - Set of 3

About 6 years ago, I started making custom kitchen knives (my wife wanted one, and so as a knifemaker and a great husband…), and ever since I’ve made 200 or so of them.  They have all been very similar in style and design, but I always wanted to make a set that any professional or at-home chef could enjoy.  So, about 2 years ago, I started to experiment with various blade styles and coatings.  I have always like the Japanese style of blade (but you already know that based on the Kwaiback)!

It was really important to me that the coating we chose held up to frequent use and washing, that edge retention was excellent, and that they were all very functional!  We make “tools for hard work,” and I didn’t see why kitchen knives should be an exception!  Plus, I wanted to stick with our “tactical” roots, so the set is all PVD Black with Carbon Fiber handles (in case you’re attacked by Ninjas while cooking dinner)!

While we were still in the prototyping stage, we had the set tested by Executive Chef Josef Karst, who gave us some terrific feedback that led to a small design change.  Check out the YouTube video I made that features Chef Josef and the three knives in action:

Below are the specs for the set of three Tactical Kitchen Knives -- from top to bottom in the first photo: the Usuba, the Santoku, and the Honesuki!  I think you’ll be very happy with this set in your home (or your spouse will be, if you’re not the master cook!).

About the Maker

Hoback, Jake
Hoback, Jake

I'm an 80's kid, and always searching for information. I started making knives back in 1990 in my back yard pounding out knives on a huge chunk of steel with a framing hammer and fence post nails. Went from there, to working in the summer time with my best bud at his dad's blacksmith shop in Virginia City, NV. From there on out I was hooked. I started professionally making and selling knives in 2003 and have been on a roll ever since. If you want to know my back ground, youll have to get to know me. All you have to know is this: I can break a steel ball in a rubber room. I make my knives according to that.
