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.

He uses O1 tool steel and A36 mild for his Damascus knives. He has also made knives with meteorite, although he hasn’t done so recently due to the high cost of production. Chris is a member of the organization of mountain men, known as the American Mountain Men, and carries the ensignia cartouche of "No Sweat" hense the branding of his knives. His brand is a encircled sweat drop with a slash through it. signifying "No Sweat" American Mountain Men is an association dedicated to preserving the traditions and ways of the nation’s greatest explorers and pioneers, the Mountain Men. The organization was started in 1968 by Walt Hayward. The American Mountain Men aim to conserve the nation’s remaining natural wilderness and wildlife, and to enable their members to survive alone, under any circumstances, using only what nature has to offer. They are interested in the quality of members, not the quantity, and their primary characteristic is to be a Brotherhood of Men. Members of the organization strive to teach, share, and learn the arts and skills of the original American mountain men. They also aim to embrace the total lifestyle of the original Mountain Men, researching all they can about these rugged individualists and then going into the field to practice what they have learned. They share their findings with other members through their magazine, "The Tomahawk & Long Rifle" The organization is not large, but it is worldwide. They work within the 1820 – 1840 era. The sense of camaraderie and the shared endeavor are more important to them than individual gain. As a member Chris will instruct interested parties in survival techniques in the wild. His son, Michael Peterson, also followed in his footsteps and became a bladesmith.
