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.

Overview

This Market Skinner by Emerson Knives features a hand ground satin finished blade with notched thumbrest, wave feature and thumbdisc. The handle has bead blasted and dovetailed titanium bolsters, richlite scales, titanium liners, tip up stainless steel clip. Comes with original box. Nice detent, lockup and blade seating. Excellent condition. 

The name Market Skinner was the professional name given to the men whose job it was to skin, quarter and preserve the meat being supplied to the large commercial consumers such as the Railroads, cities up and down America’s river ways and across the territories and states of the young American Union.

Professional Hunters called Market Hunters, would supply game to them often numbering in the hundreds or even thousands of animals that needed processing on a weekly basis.

Their job required the tools of both professional skinners and butchers plying their trade from sun up to sun down across the western states as the fledgling nation moved ever westward into new un-hunted territory.

Their main tool above all others was their knife, a knife that could do all the things needed to complete their job, quickly, cleanly and efficiently. I am lucky to have several of those “early” knives in my collection.

The Emerson market Skinner is a modern version of the knives used by those professional game butchers so many years ago. To do their job, the knife had to be strong, tough, easily sharpened and ergonomically designed for hours of laborious chores. The Emerson Market Skinner fulfills all of those roles and more in a design (if they had used folders in those days) that any of those men would have wanted.

For the modern Hunter, from the biggest game down to the smallest quarry, this Emerson hunting knife is one you could confidently use anywhere your hunt takes place.

I’ve been a hunter all my life so I know what a good hunting knife should do. Better yet, I know that those Market Skinners knew way more than me about what their knife should do. And that’s what I used as my model. See for yourself.

About the Maker

Emerson Knives
Emerson Knives

Ernest Emerson started making custom knives in his garage in 1979. He rapidly rose to prominence as a knife maker due in equal parts to his expertise as a craftsman, (tool and die maker), his artists eye for design, and his practical experience as one of the world’s most sought-after and respected hand-to-hand combat instructors. Emerson’s work has been featured and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum. There are only a handful of living artists who can make that claim. As an instructor in hand-to-hand combat and edged weapon skills, Mr. Emerson has taught the most elite warriors on earth, from the US Navy SEALs to the Guards of Parliament in London and everywhere in between. He is the author of scores of articles, books, and videos regarding tactics, training and combat. As one of the most sought after instructors in the world he is in high demand for seminars and lectures to civilian, military and law enforcement agencies. He is an inducted member of The Martial Arts Hall of Fame, along with such venerable names as Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. In fact he is the only knife maker known who also owns and operates his own training facility, the world-class “Black Shamrock Combat Academy Gym” in Los Angeles, California.
