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.

Our office will be closed Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.

About the Maker

CAMIII

CAM III is short for Charles Arthur Mahon III. Back in the 1980’s, “Chuck” designed knives and had them built in Japan to his metallurgy specs. Chuck sold his knives through JC Penney stores until that chain dropped its sporting goods section. After that he sold his remaining stock through his retail store in Vacaville, California. CAM III knives were made in Seki City, Japan and one of the primary makers was Seizo Imai. Seizo was a master knifemaker from Seki, Japan, who had a lifelong involvement with knife making. He began his journey at the age of 17 when he joined his father-in-law’s knife factory. A decade later, he took over the factory. Imai then collaborated with Parker Cutlery in Chattanooga, TN, leading to the construction of a new factory in Seki. This partnership resulted in the production of high-quality pocket knives under the brand name “Parker-Imai” for about 20 years. The factory expanded to include around 50 workers. However, as production and the number of employees increased, Imai began to worry about quality control. At the age of 47, he decided to close the factory and become a one-man custom knifemaker. He preferred the personal relationship between the knifemaker and the collector, which is why each of his knives equals a labor of love1. Imai passed away in 2014, after dedicating over 50 years to making fine knives2. His legacy continues through the many knives he crafted, each one a treasure.
