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.

From the Amtac Blades Website:

The Amtac Blades Northman is a small fixed blade knife designed to replace the cutting tool carried in your pocket. Quickly deployable and rugged enough for backcountry use, this blade is also great for combatives.

The blade, pocket firesheath, trainer, and storage sheath are included.

Based on countless hours of use and student feedback we have made the following upgrades. First, the spine of the blade will now be square/ more sharp to allow you to use the spine of the blade to strike the ferro rod. To create a more positive draw stroke, the punyo has been opened up by about 1/16 of an inch and we added a little jimping on the top and the bottom towards the rear of the handle. Lastly, we removed a small amount of material in the handle and were able to lighten the overall weight of the blade by .4 ounces. Most recent upgrades include added jimping to the handle.

Has a stonewashed blade with .160" blade stock and 1.208" blade depth, full tang construction with black G-10 scales. Comes with 2 ambidextrous kydex sheaths with velcro loops on one side and a metal clip on the other. The sheath also holds a fire steel in the sheath. Excellent condition.

About the Maker

Amtac Blades

Amtac Blades started as a conversation between myself and my friend the “Northman”. I wanted a fixed blade knife that would fit in my front pocket to replace the folding knife that was currently filling the role of my cutting tool. We talked for a while and then a few weeks later a knife showed up in the mail. Over the next year and a half we continued to test, modify, refine until we had something that met my initial vision. The Amtac Blades Northman. I want to make clear that I was not alone in designing this knife. I provided an overall vision as to what I wanted to see and then guys that are much better than me provided input and technical know how to make this happen. Special thanks to “Northman” actual, Tuhon Tom Kier, and Jake Hoback for providing guidance and technical know how. Also thanks to all of my students that provided feedback and to all of the warriors and soldiers that came before us and collectively passed on their combative knowledge to make us better. Amtac Blade’s owner is Bill Rapier. He is recently retired after twenty years in the Navy, where his duty assignments included several years at SEAL Team 3 and over 14 years at Naval Special Warfare Development Group. Positions held include assaulter, breacher, sniper, team leader, troop chief and military working dog department senior enlisted adviser. He has always been an avid shooter and is heavily involved in combatives.
