January update for 2023
Please, do not call my cell-phone for any inquiries. I will not call you back. All Missed calls (no message) are, and will be blocked.
I have provided appropriate encrypted Feedback form at the bottoms of every webpage. Your input will be safely delivered to my email.
For any knife repairs fill up this form: Knife repair form
Do not ship any valuables through the mail during any holidays, wait until the parcel shipping vulume is back to normal in the spring.
You could then ship the knife with the payment when you think is safe enough. It will be safe with me, I may open the shop on individual basis, weather and my other prior engagment permitting.
Be safe and healthy.
The repairs of your knife now depends on the present situation
Knives go on the custom knife and repairs order waiting list, and are made or repaired in the order they arrive.
First come first served - you are expected to mail your knife within one week from initial inquiry, so mail your knife as soon as you are ready.
If it arrives after the list is full, the turn around will be affected - or delayed until it is possible for me to work on it.
Or it will go on the next year waiting list.
Nobody will get on the list unless the filled out
"Knife Repair submission Form" is received.
The knife pictures are required for preliminary cost estimate - to follow with the reply to my mail.
Your timely reply to all correspondence is expected.
Not to reply is rude - and it also means that you have wasted both our time and repair is no go.
You must read and follow simple "Shipping up repairs instructions".
Failure to do so will cost you extra money.
How much? The customs bill I have to pay at the Post Office, plus 2
hours of my extra time I have to spent scanning and mailing you the
paperwork, and extra trip to town.
The Shipping any collector / family heirloom item is completely at your risk as no postal insurance will cover it, unless a proof of value is "carved in stone"

Browsing privacy protection:
Install Firefox browser and extension HTTPS Everywhere. Avoid using Edge and Opera. Both mine every keystroke you make even when you are not using them, I have to clean out their caches every day. It is either owned or controlled by Microsoft, of course.
Free Browser VPN are already compromised as are other paid Browser only VPN. I recommend only one internet connection that encrypts all your PC communications from your PC to the target PC. Every internet communication. It is PrivateVPN. Yes, it is a Pay for VPN, but you can install it on all your hand held devices and Windows, Linux and Max. Get a 3 year supper discount deal as well.
Use DuckDuckGo search engine instead of Google. Of course check out what all of these are all about.
