Refurbishing-Repair-Restoration



Unfortunately the COVID 19 & variants are wreaking havoc on the world, and as so many others, my shop was/is closed for this reason too.
For the US customers, my S&H was by Parcel Express in Washington state using USPS.
For us in BC this cheaper option is not available until the threat of Covid in Washington state is managed to the point that feds on both sides open the border.
Looks like it will not be anytime soon.

October 2021 Update:

My shop is now closed for winter. I hope to re-open sometimes next year.
US border is supposed to be open soon for fully vaccinated individuals, but Covid test is required for the return to Canada.

There is no way I can go across to pick up or send package about 1/2 hour stay in US and be able to have the Covid test done to come back home.

As you would have seen it on the Global News BC and other News networks, my Village of Lytton, BC, was razed to the ground by wild fire on June 30/2021.
All infrastructure is gone. My mail is redirected to the closest Post office - picking up and sending your knife takes two round trips 4x65km=260km, so obviously I am not driving up/down to check mail every day. The return shipping to US does not have insurance available.
The Bank is 180kmx2=360km in opposite direction to deposit your payment, and the US payment can not be cashed in Canada so has to be mailed to US bank.

For US customers - do not call my cell phone I do not have US plan and my call back to you is international call = expensive.
Note to all customers - please do look/read the Knife repairs form, repair prices, payment options & shipping information.
Fill it up if you figure you can afford the payment and will actually go ahead with sending me the knife to refurbish.

To all my customers, past and future, I pray for your good health.
Take care, get vaccinated and stay safe, bless you all.
Tony

This next information now depends on the pandemic situation   

Knives go on the custom knife and repairs order waiting list, and are made or repaired in the order they arrive.
First come first served - you are expected to mail your knife within one week from initial inquiry, so mail your knife as soon as you are ready.
If it arrives after the list is full, the turn around will be affected - or delayed until it is possible for me to work on it. Or it will go on the next year waiting list.

Serious notes:
Nobody will get on the list unless the filled out "Knife Repair submission Form" is received.
The knife pictures are required for preliminary cost estimate - to follow with the reply to my mail.
Your timely reply to all correspondence is expected.
Not to reply is rude - and it also means that you have wasted both our time and repair is no go.

You must read and follow simple "Shipping up repairs instructions". Failure to do so will cost you extra money.
How much? The customs bill I have to pay at the Post Office, plus 2 hours of my extra time I have to spent scanning and mailing you the paperwork, and extra trip to town.
The Shipping any collector / family heirloom item is completely at your risk as no postal insurance will cover it, unless a proof of value is "carved in stone"
