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)

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.

Stout, Jason
Stout, Jason

My name is Jason Burley Stout. I am a machinist / tool and die maker. I use this knowledge in the construction of my knives. Primary blade steels are CPM D-2, D-2 and A-2 Tool steels. For stainless I prefer CPM 154-CM , CPM S30-V and BG-42. All heat treating, sub-zero and cryo treatments are done by me. I use the stock removal method to profile and produce hollow, flat and scandi grinds. All blades are checked on a Rockwell hardness tester for quality. Primary handle materials are canvas micarta and G-10. I also do all the leather and Kydex sheathes. My guarantee is simple. If one of my knives or tools should fail under it's intended use , caused by defect in material or workmanship. I will fix it or replace for free. I build knives that will last for many generations if cared for properly. Thanks to all my customers for your generous support.

Heeter, T.S.
Heeter, T.S.

Todd grew up in mobile, AL and is southern to the bone with a love for his family and country. His hobbies include his wife and daughter, camping, fishing, hunting, and of course designing and creating knives. First and foremost Todd is a man's man, he likes anything steel, metal, manly and true. His career began 17 years ago as a machinist, fabricator, and welder. This love and understanding of all things metal is how Heeter Knifeworks was born. He started creating knives over 4 years ago by turning a simple rusty railroad spike into a shiny, beautifully designed statement knife. He counts himself lucky to be able to do what he loves by creating custom knives. He continued to work with how to bend and mold the metals into works of art, from that, the war tag was born. He continues to bring new and innovative ideas to knife making always looking for the next way to create something unique. The war tag line is important to Todd as it represents something more than a knife... it represents his country and the men and women that fight for it. Every knife created by Todd is handled by him personally, checked for quality, and customized as ordered just as he envisioned. This is a dream come true for Todd and he believes in making the best product available, and that means made in America.

Fiddleback Forge
Fiddleback Forge

Hi, I am Andy Roy, the maker at Fiddleback Forge, LLC. I started making knives in 2007, and went full time May 1, 2009 when I got laid off of my last engineering position. I consider myself a toolmaker, and much of the focus of my work is in the handle. I strive to make the most comfortable handle you?ve ever held. It is important to me that you can hold the knife in many positions comfortably and do hard extended work with the blade. I also think it is important for the handle to index the knife in your hand, so that no matter how you hold it, you know where the edge is without having to look. I use a variety of steels, and my favorite grinds are convex, and Scandi. In 2010 I spent a lot of time developing a finish treatment for the flats of my knives that I call 3D Spalted Steel. It adds a unique character to my blades, and I think it complements the refined handle work well. I am very excited to be working with Arizona Custom Knives, and hope you enjoy the Fiddleback Forge knife you buy from them.

RMJ Tactical
RMJ Tactical

I have made hand forged tomahawks now for over 35 years. Most of these hawks have been working historical reproductions and utility/camping axes. When it comes to design, my job as an engineer/historian/bladesmith is to draw from a wealth of historical axes aspects that we like and that can be executed with the tools and talents found in the shop. We may choose a blade shape here, a handle style there, a bowl shape from yet another piece. We may accurately copy just one tomahawk and it's details. There were thousands of tomahawks made in the 18th and 19th centuries, and because they were handmade no two were exactly alike. This makes my job pretty easy design wise: I pick the elements and execute these thoughts in the medium of iron, steel, wood and leather.

Dervish Knives (John Gonzalez)

My interest in knives and swords began in adolescence, but it wasn’t until the late 1990’s when I discovered my passion for custom knives. I was initially drawn to tactical pieces, but my approach to knife making is largely inspired via the myriad of elegant and lethal designs from diverse cultures and eras. Due to my background in graphic arts and illustration, designing knives has always been the easiest part of knife making for me. Aspiring to create aesthetically pleasing knives which excel in both form and function, I draw heavily on time-tested designs, geometries, and materials . I currently reside in southern Colorado, where I enjoy hiking, fishing and spending time with my wife and son.

My name is Bastien Coves and I’m 35 years old. I have been a french Knifemaker for 11 years and I recently had the chance to move to the USA. I live now with my wife and my 2 daughters near Orlando, FL. I started my knife collection when I was 7 and I’m very experienced with carrying, using, and playing each day with different kinds of knives ( fixed blades, Karambits, balisongs, Katanas, folding knives, push daggers, etc.). My work as a knifemaker and knife designer pushes me to make lots of cutting tests each week over the past 10 years, which allows me to better create and warranty the perfect knife to my customers. I've done work for the military, law enforcement, french special units, martial arts instructors, martial arts students, collectors, etc. My work is my passion and I’m lucky to live it each day. To meet and share it with other people who are passionate about knives

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.
