Payment: Payments can be made with any credit card using paypal. I can also take a credit card over the phone if you like. You may also pay for your order with a postal money order. Contact me for an address.
Shipping: Shipping is included for U.S. customers only.
Knife making: The stock removal process is used in making your knife
Knife design and size: Most knives are original designs by myself. I can make totally custom knives that you have designed. Contact me to discuss what you want.
Steel: I prefer to work with 440C stainless steel. However if you want another kind of steel contact me to see if I can make what you want.
Heat treat: All knives are heat treated (hardened) by myself according to the steel manufacturers guidelines. They are taken to their hardest point then tempered in order to allow them to hold an edge. Usually a Rockwell hardness between 57 and 60.
Handles: I use a number of hard woods for handle material, along with G10/Micarta. Spacer material can also be used, it is a vulcanized fiber made for knife handles. It comes in black, white, red, green, blue, and yellow. You will need to leave me a note with your order if you want something special.
Logo: All knives will have the Rebel Blades logo etched into one side of the knife. If this is a problem let me know.
Added features: You can order extra features on your knife, such as gimping for your thumb, or a lanyard hole in the handle. But keep in mind it may take longer to get your knife if I do not have it in stock and need to make it.
Blemishes: These are not mass produced knives, they are hand made. As such they may have minor imperfections, such as tool marks, grind lines, sheath marks, nicks, wavy lines, etc. If your knife has any of these look at it as adding character to your knife. These type of things happen when making a 'tool' by hand and in no way impact the performance of your knife.
Returns: Any returns must be made with in 5 days of reciept of the knife, AFTER contacting Rebel Blades for an RMA. Returns will only be accepted for damage to the knife. If you decide you do not like the knife that is not a reason for return. Any knife returned MUST be unused. Keep in mind these knives are all hand made to order. ALL sales are final. No returns for an abused knife will be accepted. ALL sales are final.
Refusal of delivery: If you refuse delivery of an item you will be charged for all shipping charges, along with half the cost of the knife.
Custom Orders: Custom orders will need to be paid in full before work is started. There will be NO returns on custom orders.
