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

Russell, A.G.
Russell, A.G.

A.G. Russell passed away October 2018. I was born in Eudora, Arkansas, in the extreme southeast corner. I have been designing knives almost since I could first hold a pencil. When I was nine, my grandfather helped me make my first knife. It was a knife that only a mother could love. But I only improved from there. I made knives for fun until the early 1960s when I started selling them as a business. I have founded the oldest mail order knife business (1964), the oldest knife collectors club (1969-1970), and the oldest after-market knife business (1968). I've had a wonderful fifty plus years in this business. Stage by stage we have outgrown our quarters, to the point that I feel like a chambered nautilus. I moved from my kitchen table to a small building on my farm (1966), and then moved again to a larger but still small building in Springdale (1971). I bought the property and doubled the office space (1974), then in 1995, built a fine new 8,000 sq. ft. building. Very quickly, that space was filled. In March of 2002, we moved into new facilities located on Interstate 49, just up the road from our long-time location in Springdale, Arkansas. We are located just off of Exit 81 (Pleasant Grove). Turn left onto 26th Street and just follow the road until you see our sign on the left. I like to be in the showroom when I can so I can talk about knives with my customers. Stop on in and see me, ask me questions, show me old knives. I'd love to talk with you. In November of 1988, my wife Goldie joined the business. She began by using her art background to produce the best catalog we had ever mailed. We mailed ten times as many catalogs as we had ever mailed before. Every year since 1988, our catalogs have increased in quality, as well as the number mailed. It took Goldie about two years to learn everything that I had learned in a lifetime of designing and making knives, then learning how to market them. By mid-1990, Goldie had assumed more and more responsibility, to the point that she was actually running the company. She is now the president and chief executive officer of this company and runs it better than I ever have, which accounts for our growth. Goldie has now been in the knife business for decades, and is considered an authority on knives. In June 2014 she became the first woman accepted into the Cutlery Hall of Fame, which also made us the first couple to have this honor together. There are now almost 40 of us who work to produce all those catalogs to help you acquire that perfectly suited knife. I design knives, work with knifemakers and with the companies who make the great production knives which we sell. I write copy for the brochures and catalogs, while Goldie does the tough day-to-day grind of running an ever-growing business. One of the reasons we have grown so much is that I stand by our total satisfaction guarantee. It is pretty simple. You, the customer, get to decide what satisfaction is. And you decide how long you are entitled to be satisfied. That means exactly what it sounds like it means - if you buy a knife and don't use it for ten years, and when you do use it you want to return it, do so. If you think that a knife should provide good service for ten years and it only does so for seven years, tell us so. You are in charge of our guarantee. Do people abuse our guarantee? Yes, every once and a while. But I firmly believe that we have the greatest, most trustworthy customers in the world. Because of this we can afford to have the world's strongest guarantee. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with, and know as my friends, the great knifemakers of the 20th Century; men such as R. W. (Bob) Loveless, R. L. (Bob Dozier), D'Alton Holder, Jess Horn, Ron Lake, Buster Warenski and D. E. (Ed) Henry. Hundreds of very fine knifemakers have blessed me with their friendship, as have thousands of knife collectors. I have been involved with guns and knives most of my life and my life has been much fuller because of that. Founder - A. G. Russell Knives, Inc.
