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

Vallotton, Thomas

I have been a knifemaker since 1995. Since then I have been hooked on knifemaking. My knowledge in knifemaking comes from working with Butch Vallotton and Rainy Vallotton, corresponding with other knifemakers and not the least learning by trial and error. I really like the challenge of folder making. The precision and tools needed really makes it a very interesting job. I have chosen to make folders with linerlocks with ist's simple yet very reliable mechanism that have no moving parts. I like strong and solid folders so I use .050"" thick liners on all linerlocks with blade over 3"". This makes a very strong folder On the smaller knives I use .040"" liners unless you want it different. I prefer using synthetic materials for scales on my folders. I like the way Micarta, G10 and carbon fiber looks and performs on them and it leaves out any shrinking and shifting of the materials. I use some natural materials from time to time such as Pearl and Mammoth ivory. I like bolsters and offer them on most of my folders. These can be left handrubbed or polished. I make all my pocketclips my self and design one for each model I make. On the pictures you might find different clips for the same model as I have tried several designs on most models but in the end I decide on one clip design.for each model. I design all my folders in a CAD program to be able to get the design as efficient as possible. By using this method I can control every little detail down to a fraction of an inch and it provides me with exact blueprints for each part. One detail commonly overlooked in folder making is the blade to handle ratio. I feel it is very important to have as much blade as possible in a folder. All my models at this moment are designed with a thumb stud but I have made a few of them with a nailnick to as an option. If you have a special request just ask.
