The Personal Experience of a Knife Purchase

 I'm Jay Fisher, and this is a single knife maker's website, so the business I do is very personal and individual. Large knife companies, knife boutique shops, semi-production knife manufacturers, dealers, resellers, or volume websites that deal with more than one maker or more than one worker will have a catalogue type of web order and purchase experience.  I do not have a running catalog with a price list; this is not a typical catalogue website. Other than the standard tactical knives, I've never copied existing knives and repeated the exact same knife with the exact same materials, finish, embellishment, or accessories, so unless it's a tactical combat knife, it is unique.

There are three ways you can acquire a knife made by Jay Fisher.

  • You can purchase a finished knife from my Knives for Sale page or my Tactical Knives for Sale page. These are knives that are currently available for immediate purchase. For every custom knife I make, I try to make one knife that is my own creative project, a knife for my inventory, and the knives on these two pages are those inventory knives. On those individual knife pages is the only place on this website where you will see prices listed. Each knife for sale has all the specifications, description, details, inspiration, features and use of the knife, blade, handle, components, fittings and accessories (sheath or stand) listed, along with multiple high detail photographs from every angle of the knife. I don't typically have a large amount of inventory knives available on these pages as most of them move fairly quickly. More details are available on my Purchasing a Finished Knife page, and my Knife Sales Policy page.
  • You can custom order a knife. A client may look through the many pages of this site and see a pattern, style, or knife that interests him and he places a custom order. Useful resources for knife illustration of my work are my Patterns page, listing over 400 different patterns I make with linked photographs to finished knives, and the Featured Knife page which has links to many individual knife pages that have multiple photos and technical descriptions. He may wish to simply email me to start the custom knife conversation. Once we agree on a project, he submits a standard $200.00 US deposit to get in the queue, and I start the work. When the knife is finished, he pays the balance and shipping, and his knife is delivered. The delivery time may be in the order of many months, perhaps years, which is typical for well-known makers. Here are more details on Purchasing a Custom Ordered Knife page and my Knife Sales Policy page.
  • You may be able to find one of my knives for resale somewhere on the internet. While not many of my knives have been resold over the course of my career, I do see them offered from time to time from dealers and individuals. Please note that typically, a knife resold sells for more than it was originally ordered for from the maker; at least mine due to because of their investment value and appreciation. A detailed internet search may reveal sources of available knives.

Thanks for being here and considering a Jay Fisher handmade knife!
