pay pal charges me 5%, trade me 7% purchase through web site would be 3%. when selling through these mediums I have to add this to the overall cost of the item to cover costs. this means my custom work/ direct purchases normally work out a little cheaper, however I am happy to accept bank transfer, pay pal or cash for direct sales.
Postage costs are based on standard tracked post up to $200 value then to courier delivery above $200 due to insurance cover, I am happy to confirm the cost prior to ordering. I am always happy for personal collections, please contact for mutually agreeable date and time.
Any costs uncured via customs charges are the purchasers responsibility, I would recommend these are checked before ordering.
I am happy to answer any questions and confirm costs prior to taking an order.
As a final thought on prices, when I looked carefully at the cost of making a mid size knife, I found the true cost of the materials I use, electricity, consumables, machine time etc. come in at approximately $110 dollars, depending on model and extras, this is before any costs are added for my time. Please keep this in mind when looking at my, or any other custom maker, price guide and remember this the next time you look at the advertised `high quality custom hand made knife and sheath` being offered at $100 to $150??? The piece of my soul which accompanies each blade I include for free!
