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.

Most of the early WWI trench knives were made by hand by individual soldiers or blacksmiths.  Oftentimes they were Army Issued bayonets that were sharpened and shortened.  

The first official U.S. trench knife that was adopted for service was the US M1917 trench knife. Designed by Henry Disston & Sons and based on examples of trench knives then in service with the French Army. The M1917 featured a triangular stiletto blade, wooden grip, metal knuckle guard, and a rounded pommel. Within months of the M1917 issue, the M1918, was adopted.  The M1918 is almost identical to the M1917, differing primarily in the construction and appearance of the knuckle guard. 

During World War II, the US Mark I was issued in 1942 and 1943 to airborne troops, Army Rangers, and Marine Raiders.  The Mark I featured a full-tang design with a double-edged blade and a heavy bronze hilt incorporating a guard ostensibly shaped as a knuckle duster. 

Embodying history and our own design philosophies, Lady Death is our rendition of the classic trench knife.  We decided to go big, like no other, with a 15" overall length, and 9 5/8" CPM-Magnacut double-edge dagger blade with a long fuller down the middle.  The knuckle duster style handle acts as a guard to protect your hands, and the aggressive outward shape works well for raking.  To round out the overall shape, the end of the handle features a pronounced pomel for hammer-striking.  The handle is finished with Dirty Olive G10 handle slabs with a checkered texture that is suitable in dry or wet conditions.  The handle slabs are attached with Grade 5 Titanium fasteners that are electro-anodized in bronze to round out the look.  Lady Death includes a brown leather sheath with a contrasting green canvas inlay.  The sheath is ambidextrous, and can be worn on a belt or attached to PALS webbing.
