Scratch and Dent Sale!

Scratch and Dent Sale!


Every once in awhile, the blades just don't meet my standards for aesthetics. I collect them over time and post them here!

Each has it's own flaws, but if you're not super picky, they can be quite the diamond in the rough! Take a look and click on the drop down menu for individual purchasing. I'd rather they have a home then just discarding them, so I'm passing them along at ridiculously low prices. I'd rather take a loss than throw them out!

Flaws are mostly dings, scratches, cracks, pitting in the metal, or finishing issues of some sort and generally do not affect the overall usefulness (although some may be better for display than use). They just don't pass our desire for great quality and so we won't sell them at full price. Sorry, no returns on these!

Disclaimer: The blades are still sharp! You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.

*Damascus and wood patterns will vary.

1095 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.

I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!

Corporate Gifts or Awards

These are usually orders of 15+. We can do almost any amount given enough time.

You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.

Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes. Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!

-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.

-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.

We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!

The knife shipped fast and arrived earlier than estimated. Beautiful knife that is exactly as described in the ad. Can't wait to start using this in the kitchen!

I don’t think I’ve ever received a product this fast!! Thanks for the quick shipment. The knife has a really cool rustic feel to it, not to mention it’s beautiful. And it came with a sheath! 5 stars.

Purchased as a scratch and dent piece. The blade is solid and beautiful.
