to the knife caused by misuse,
abuse, tampering, or attempted repair by an unauthorized person. Skyblade Knives
makes all warranty coverage decisions.
Why should I choose Skyblade
over other knives?
There are many reasons. Skyblade Knives are much less
expensive than many of the
custom knives on the market. However, each is
still hand-made from the finest
materials, with satisfaction in
mind. You are purchasing a one-of-a-kind, custom-
made knife, with superior craftsmanship and a lifetime warranty. A personalized
investment in art, quality and beauty. Do you appreciate personalized

How long will it take to
receive my knife after I order?
Delivery time for hand-made knives may vary according to
inventory on hand, and backlog of orders. An acknowledgment email with expected
shipping date will be sent upon receipt of your order, if requested, or email for
availability. Delivery time on a custom order has been about 2-3 months in the past,
however, I suggest that you order well in advance. Order early for Christmas
How do I decide which knife is
best for my needs?
For most, personal preference is the deciding
factor. Do you prefer a large knife, a
small knife or something in-between? A longer blade will cut deeper than a shorter
blade, or offer more leverage and cutting power. However, a shorter blade may be
handier for more delicate work, and easier and lighter to carry. If you choose to cut
through tougher materials, a thicker blade will be stronger and heavier.
slice cleaner and take a sharper edge. For skinning, choose a blade with
more belly, or curved upsweep toward the tip of the blade. I will be happy to help
you choose the correct style and size of knife for your needs. Please just ask.

How do I sharpen my
There are many ways to sharpen a knife. The easiest is to send it back to me for
sharpening. I sharpen Skyblade knives for free and other knives for
$3 a blade plus
shipping. Otherwise, touch up your knife with a fine stone, ceramic or steel when it
starts to lose the hair shaving edge. If you allow it to become
dull, you'll need a
course and fine stone. Keep the angle the same with
every stroke of the blade. This
is the biggest mistake most people make. Lansky and others make a knife sharpener
that holds the knife and stone in a jig for proper sharpening angle every time.
Beware of some of the cheap V shaped sharpeners! They can trash the edge.
