A customer may "Lay - A - Way" a knife with a 25% deposit of an item $1000. or more with an agreed Time Frame and Pickup/Delivery Date. Average time frame is 90-120 days. Balance on the item must be paid in full before shipment. If for any reason a customer defaults on his/her agreement the deposit will be refunded in the form of store credit minus 10% handling fee of the sale. These are not hard and fast rules and I will try to work with you to make the situation affordable for you.
