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

Hrisoulas, Jim

Dr. Jim Hrisoulas aka "Atar" is the author of several books, numerous magazine articles and research papers on the subject of bladesmithing and period metal working techniques used throughout history. His work has won awards at most of the internationally acclaimed knife and custom blade shows in the world. A recognized authority on metalworking techniques, Jim tries to share as much knowledge as he can with others and help out those who are having problems or who are in need of information. As Jim has said many times: "There are no secrets to doing this, it is after all "Dark Age Tech". His books are now considered to be "standard works" in the bladesmithing field. Jim sums up his "freedom of information" attitude pretty well with this statement "No one is born knowing how to do this, everyone has to start someplace". Over the years he has had his work displayed world wide in collections and museums, including the Tower of London and the New York Met. A Doctoral Degree holder in the field of Metallography, he understands the working techniques, applications and heat treating of steels and alloys to a very high degree. Jim has been referred to numerous times as one the "Grand Old Men" of knifemaking as well as one of the last of the "Old School Bladesmiths". It has been mentioned that he has been one of the "Top 10 Most Influential Bladesmiths of the last 50 years" on many occasions. Form follows function and you will find that there are no "fantasy" pieces nor anything that "doesn't work" on any blade that Jim makes. You can find a more decorative sword or a more elaborate dagger, but you will be hard pressed to find a better one where it counts, and that is in use.
