Professional Knife Repairs    by *AJH* Custom Knives & Services


Your initial estimated Payment is required up front - include it with the knife.

Free cost /work estimate only without any repair, you pay for the return S&H $35.00
You must include it with your knife, if you want your knife back
If you know your knife is a piece of junk you do not want to spend any money on, do not insult me with the repair inquiry fishing for cheap price.

The repairs are labor intensive, and therefore are not cheap.
To see the Whys, and the What's of repairing your knife, check out    Where your money goes

The start-up payment for any hands on repairs, however small is $200.00 US
It is the sum of the minimum shop fee $165.00 US + return S&H $35,00 including $200.00 CAD insurance
Insurance - Additional fee is $2.25/$100 - or $5 for additional $200 coverage total $400.00 Canadian - so do your exchange rate math.
The Labor & Materials for making the repair possible are added to the start up fee - never the same, so can not be set in stone.

Some knives will need extra work which may be discovered only after the disassembly, so there will be an additional charge for that.
Before you submit the Repair form make sure that you have a rough idea what it will cost you.

Knife repairs costs

Your start-up lowest fee for any knife repair is $200.00 US
If multiple blades, springs, bolsters, large MOP scales, or frame liners replacement is required,
your final cost may be over $400.00 US

You may feel that the repair cost is too high, after all, it is only a handle, only one blade, or just one spring that needs replacing.
Or just a couple of scales of wood, or better dishwasher safe Pakkawood or Dymondwood scales, some glue, and rivets.
Or that only your blades are a bit rusty with some ruts pits, but the handle is perfect ...Nothing else needs replacing
You say the knife you have is perfect it every way, but it is a bit loose and needs tightening up ....

No such simple thing. Do not act surprised, read on: To see where your money goes, the Whys, and the What's of repairing your knife, check out the summary:
