We used to offer little instant buttons, shopping cart, etc. But they suck.
Our current payment method allows us to send you an invoice via PayPal. The invoice identifies specifically what you are ordering. Then you simply follow the PayPal process. And it is done.
If need be, we can split the cost up over several PayPal money requests. But the work don't start until the dough is in our hands.
Because it is PayPal you are protected and the wait time is reduced considerably. Contact us when you're ready to purchase, and we will send you an invoice.
Not a Fan of PayPal?
If you simply, flatout refuse to coorperate with PayPal, or vice-versa, we can accept a postal money order. But that takes longer and draws out the process. Don't you want your unique work of art in your grubby paws ASAP?
Either way, we ask you to contact us first, because we may be able to offer you a nice discount. We are regular folks - a small family business - and we like to do nice stuff for nice people. If you're not nice people, we here at Black Helicopter Headquarters will feel morally obligated to send the Mime Team your way for a good thrashing...with one of our knives with the premium sharpening.
Thats how we roll. It's simple here. You pay - we get started. We don't do squat until the bread is in-hand, though. It costs money for super steel, baby - and we have bills. So, your project gets to be funded by you. Unless you have something cool you want to trade, like a KRISS Vector V assault rifle or a nice Victory or Harley cruiser.
We make gear for legends - but we like legends who pay.
For those interested, our knives feature a zero-grind style at between 7.5 and 11 degrees. We do each of these completely by-hand and by-eyeball. There are no jigs at work here. Our grinder
features a ten-inch wheel with a variable speed controller - and we run it at high pressures with a 70 duro contact wheel and 2 inch x 72-inch blaze ceramic belts.
We do not, however, weigh our knives. If you are worried about how much they weigh, you must be preparing to take them into space. Hope you have a good trip.
Our steels have been LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV, ELMAX, M390, CTS-204P, Z-FINIT Nitrogen Steel, CPM-20CV and a couple in N690 and Cowry X. We are always experimenting - and always looking for new materials and treatments.
Our coatings are also specialized stuff: We use Black-T and Black Diamond DLC. Our blades are sent out to those two companies to accomplish that work, depending on the requirements of the project.
We do all our own firing and cryo work. Everything by-hand and by-heart.
FOR KNIFE BUILDS...
(yep. We are that busy)
Troops come first.
