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:

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.

Nell, Chad

Chad Nell was born in Manti, Utah in 1971. While growing up, he noticed that his father, who was a Master Mechanic, enjoyed the challenge of making beautifully crafted arrowheads from flint gathered in the surrounding hills. Throughout his childhood, Chad developed an intense appreciation for seeing things built from scratch while using one's hands and mind to design and create wonderful treasures. Chad has always dreamed about making things that embodied precision, functionality and beauty. Luckily, Chad inherited his father’s talent of working with his hands! While pursuing this great desire of working and creating with his hands, Chad was fortunate to gain his custom hand made knives knowledge and skill under legendary knife makers Steve Johnson and John Young. He watched and learned, with great admiration, as those two masters created works of art. Chad Nell has always had a strong attachment to his roots of Utah. Over the years, he has held various occupations but just wasn't satisfied. His heart and spirit kept pulling him back to creating and making things with his hands. Being an avid outdoors-man, he always enjoyed hunting. While using a "factory" knife when hunting one day, he decided he should contact his Uncle Steve for some help on building his own custom knife, and that's where he got his start!

Heretic Knives
Heretic Knives

All of our knives are made in the USA and we will keep it that way. When you purchase one of our knives you can have confidence in your tool knowing that it is backed by an American company. Our knives are made in small production runs to ensure you receive a quality knife that has been given the attention other mass produced knives don't receive. In 2015 my wife Jessica and I founded Heretic Knives. As a second generation knife maker, applying the knowledge that has been passed to me, I want to bring designs and certain elements to the craft that haven't been tried before. In closing, I look forward to passing the same knowledge, plus what I've picked up on my own, down to the next generation.

Curtiss Knives
Curtiss Knives

Just thought I might tell you a little about Curtiss Custom Knives LLC. We are a veteran owned small business. When I decided to create this business, I had one standard in mind. To make the best knives and give the best customer service possible. I would like to tell you a little about customer service. My first job when I was a young boy was at a full service gas station if anyone remembers what that is. I was taught to not only pump gas but also check tire pressure, oil level , wash the windshield, and anything else that you saw needed to be done. I tried to use the same business model for Curtiss Custom Knives LLC. Let’s face it, these knives are not cheap. I know if I spent that kind of money I would expect to have an unconditional lifetime warranty too. If you don’t take care of your customers, you won’t have any eventually. It really has to do with taking pride in what I make. I never claimed to make the best knife, but I will give you the best customer service I possibly can. The knives will always get better. With that being said, here is the warranty on our knives. Unconditional Lifetime Warranty within reason. When I say within reason, it just means to use common sense. Your knife is not a screwdriver, pry bar or an axe. Don’t use it in that manner. Use it for what a knife is designed for, cutting. Now I don’t care if you are the original owner or the 10th owner. I warranty the knife, not the person. If you need a repair or just want your knife sharpened, please email me. Its that simple. Next is the processes we use to make our knives. I am the only one in our shop. No magic mini shop monkeys or anything. Just me. I start with a thought and turn it into a CAD drawing. If I like what I see, I create run files and cut my parts on our waterjet machine. Yes we have a waterjet in our shop. After the materials are cut into the basic shapes, I use our CNC machining center for the secondary processes such as milling, drilling, pockets and tapping. I do my blade grinds by hand on 2″x 72″ belt grinders that I designed and built. Other shop equipment includes heat treat oven, blast cabinet, vibe machine and misc. other machines. Anything else is done by hand by me. I do all of my sharpening on a belt machine I built. All knives receive a 20 degree polished edge. I do currently outsource for some hardware but we hope to make that ourselves soon. So I do not put my knives in a “mid-tech” or “production” classification. I call my knives “CUSTOM”. We own and operate all machinery in house. I'm very pleased to work with Arizona Custom Knives and look forward to a long relationship.

Skike Knives

My name is Pieter VanSchaick and I am a full blown self-taught steel addict. Nothing quite feeds my addiction like grinding a chunk of super steel or titanium on a 3 Horse Power, knuckle ripping, ceramic belt grinder. It's the smell of burnt steel - that constant and lingering aroma that never seems to leave my shop. It's white hot titanium raining down on my hands - occasionally igniting into a 6000 degree flash burn. But I know if I just hold steady for a few seconds longer, I will achieve perfection I've ground knives all the way down to final edge just to have them ripped from my hands and consumed by my grinder's insatiable non-bias appetite. I know I've put in a good day's work when I am covered in steel shavings and my hands ache with productivity. The stereo type of being left handed and creative is very true - custom runs deep in my blood and shows with every blade I make. I like to think that grinding my blades by hand breathes fire and soul into the steel. It's almost like there is a magnetic primal attraction when handling a custom knife - it's truly a page in the maker's life and a tribute to all things hand made. Knives and knife-like tools go back 2.5 million years. Due to its role as humankind's first tool, certain cultures have attached spiritual and religious significance to the knife. A lot of my designs are inspired from sharks. They are the most evolved apex predators on the earth, and you can see shark-like styling cues throughout most of my builds. I only build my knives with the absolute best technologically advanced materials on the planet, period. My approach to design is a no-bullshit kind of attitude. I build every knife with the intent that someone's life will depend on it. My goal as a knife maker is to provide the highest caliber knives using the best of my abilities at all times, and to create legendary bad-ass blades.

S.K. Knives is located in Bigfork, Montana. It is the work and determination of myself and my wife Malissa. I am a full-time knifemaker, husband and father of two awesome children. I built my first knife in 2000. I was determined to create my own hunting knife. Even before it was finished, I had realized that I had been bitten by the knife making bug. Soon after that fist knife was finished, I began building the knife I carried while performing my duties, as a Deputy Sheriff. Before long I was building knives for friends, relatives and co-workers. In 2001 I was introduced to the forge. I have been forging blades ever since. In late 2002 I began building my own Damascus. I did it the old fashioned way, using a variety of hammers and a 125 lb anvil. I learned many valuable lessons by building my Damascus this way, but was relatively limited in my pattern capabilities. In April of 2005 I completed my 50 ton hydraulic forging press and am now making an array of mosaic Damascus patterns. In June of 2008 I successfully passed my American Bladesmith Society, Journeyman Smith test. This accomplishment completed the next step in my continuing quest of making myself the best knife maker I can be. In 2009 I decided to fall back on my roots from 15 years of Law Enforcement experience. I began building more tactical style knives with a strong focus on folders. And an emphasis on what I would carry if I was still working the streets. Most of my tactical knives and folders are built with CPM-154 stainless blades, Titanium and composite handle materials.I believe that knives can be beautiful in appearance. But first and foremost, must be a functional tool. I strive to make my knives the toughest, best cutting tools possible. The standard I use is a combination of toughness, and edge holding ability, as well as ease of sharpening. I fully believe in and use the designs I produce. My knives are used in and subjected to one of the toughest environments in the Country, the Montana outdoors. Montana has some of the most severe weather challenges and the best sporting challenges anywhere. My knives have stood up to the challenges time and again. I also perform regular testing on the knives I build. Because of this philosophy, I limit myself to using a select few steels, that I have tested, time and again. Most of my straight steel working knives are built from 52100 or 1084 tool steel. I also use other steels such as CPM-154 when the need and function of the knife require a stainless steel blade. I build the majority of my straight laminate Damascus patterns from 1084 or 1080 and 15n20 with the occasional addition of that something special for added effect. I also build a variety of canned Damascus patterns which incorporate several different steels and shapes. This process provides some of the most unique and diverse patterns imaginable. I am very proud of the fact that I can claim sole proprietorship of my work. I do all of the work that goes into my knives. I perform all of my own heat treating, with differential edge quench being my choice for the majority of my knives. I am convinced that this provides the best combination of edge holding ability and toughness in most applications. Knife making is constantly changing and evolving. I am always trying and testing new products. I do this in an effort the learn all that I can about the craft I love. And, also to try and provide only the best possible products to my valued clients. I take tremendous pride in my work and craftsmanship. I will make every effort to satisfy every customer. All of my knives come with free lifetime sharpening and my personal guarantee against defects in quality and craftsmanship. I believe that Quality Should Last a Lifetime!

My passion is in custom folding knives. I stumbled upon custom knife maker videos on you tube and instantly fell in love with the idea of making my own frame lock folder. In 2015 I bought a few pieces of machinery to make it happen. I have not stopped since. I like to keep it as original as possible and evolving with the times and materials. My workshop is always growing and evolving for the better. Most of my designs start out in CAD. I spend a great deal of time doing one off creations from scratch. I have also utilize water jet to profile many of my designs. I do not consider water jet profiling to take away from the true custom experience. I still spend hundreds of hours on CAD perfecting my designs. I like to use quality high end stainless steel and Damascus. I use many handle materials; Titanium, Zirconium, Timascus, Carbon Fiber, Mokume, Wood, and the list goes on and on! I am a full time Firefighter for Seminole Fire Rescue in the Tampa Bay Area. Knife making is my part time obsession. My other hobbies include Diving, Fishing, and Off-Roading when I am not making knives. I have a beautiful family with two children.

I have always been passionate about knives… As a young boy my fascination grew from playing Cowboys and Indians with the neighborhood knuckleheads. Sticks found their way under my belt taking the form of a stag handled Bowie. With my trusty 6 Shooter (cap gun) strapped to my right hip I terrorized the surrounding back yards. Hiding behind anything that would provide adequate cover, waiting to ambush an unsuspecting adult or pet that happened to be in the area. As an adult, knives became something that I used on a daily basis. I gained an appreciation for the skill and art found in many custom knives. Dad was right, that Gerber started what later became a very expensive habit of buying custom knives! I started collecting high end custom knives from many famous makers. Over the last few years of making knives I have become friends with some of those amazing makers. They have played a huge role in the type of knives I like and make on a daily basis.
