Custom orders for swords are done on the
following basis- periodically I will post a list here of the
heat-treated blade 'blanks' that are in stock and what sort of swords
they may best be turned into. You, the customer, can look over
the list and see if there is something there that you would like to
have made and contact me about making it. If we reach and
agreement as to what you want and the price I will proceed to make
it. Circumstances allowing this will take anywhere from a few
days to a few weeks. You will not be required to put down a
deposit. When the item is completed I'll send pictures and specs
for your approval. You will not be obliged to accept the finished
piece if it doesn't please you; if the finished piece doesn't
work for you I'll adjust it to suit or simply post it for sale and we
go our seperate ways, no harm, no foul. I've given this system of
doing things a trial run and it has worked to everyone's satisfaction.
Now the conditions- This will work only if everyone acts in good
faith. When you order a piece you have to be prepared to pay for
it on approval, and bear in mind that it might be ready very
quickly. OK, stuff happens- unexpected expenses crop up all the
time; if you cannot take delivery let me know ASAP. I'll
undertsand, trust me. I may at times prefer to simply post a
piece for sale rather than modifying it if you don't approve the
finished piece. It's an artistic thing; sometimes a blade comes
out 'right' and I am loathe to change it. If this occurs keep an
eye on the blanks and if a suitable blank comes along we'll try it
again with specs better suited to what you want.
To be very clear on one point-
The blanks are listed for the purpose of customers seeing what is
available to be made into
complete swords by me- I
do not provide un-mounted blades.
Another condition hasn't changed- I won't make a sword that I don't
like or that won't work; it's just not going to happen. Swords
that I don't like generally don't come out as well as the customer
deserves, and swords that don't work aren't swords- they are sculpture
and I am a sword-maker, not a sculptor!
Keep an eye on the list below- and take care to note whether orders are
OPEN or CLOSED above.
