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.

About the Maker

Nolen, R.D.

"A life long interest in hunting has given us an approach to knife making that comes from years of practical experience. My brothers and I were raised on squirrel dumplings in the piney woods of East Texas and we hunted from there to the Tundra of Alaska to the jungles of Mexico and the Rockies in between. In fact, our serious efforts in the field of knife making was started as a means to finance our hunts. Our father actually made the first "Nolen Knife" back in the 1930's, however, it wasn't called that. He just needed a good knife, so he made one. RD made the first knife in 1946 and over the next 20 years made a few more just to satisfy the desire to use a knife that was the result of his own handiwork. It wasn't until the late 1960's that we met Clyde Fischer and were introduced to the art of "Custom Knife Making". What an experience that was - to realize that there were still craftsmen in this world, like Clyde, who were making knives by hand and actually getting PAID for them! Since we were not machinist, or metallurgist, or even blacksmiths, we took our basic knowledge of knife construction and our many years of knife use in the field and went to work. After many trials and many errors and with the help of Clyde Fischer, Jimmy Lile and others, we have reached a point that we feel assures our customers of a quality product. However, we do not feel like we have made our best knife, YET. At least we hope we haven't. To stop improving would be a terrible thing. To give you a little insight into our knife making philosophy, we feel we should tell you our main objective of art, believe me, it is strictly secondary. We make our knives, first and foremost, to be used and abused by the American Sportsmen. We direct our efforts towards a blade that is functional, or a handle that really fits your hand and a sheath that protects you and your knife. Why? Because that is what really counts in that field. Not how shiny the blade is or how fancy the handle might be. Sadley we lost RD on March 4, 2010. Steve is carrying on the family business. He started working full time with his father in 1986, and has the same philosophy as RD. Steve has the same passion to achieve the high quality that Nolen Knives has always been known for his past."
