History

We first started offering special projects on eBay in December 2009, which was successful on many levels. We are thankful for the market that eBay was able to provide us. While our experience with eBay was very positive, in an effort to do everything we can to ensure your faith in this process and your confidence in our product, we will be hosting our own auctions from now on. Our goal as always is to maximize customer satisfaction.

Every auction knife will come with a certificate of authenticity and warranty. This format will allow us more control over the entire process and hopefully, give you peace of mind that you are buying an original directly from our workshop.

If you see a listing on eBay, please be aware that it is not being sold by us.

Ready Made

Occasionally we have straight steel & simple pattern Damascus custom Kramer Knives for sale.

These are handmade by Bob with a certificate of authenticity and warranty.

History

We first started offering custom ready-made knives for sale in November 2011. Our goal was to streamline production in order to get knives into the hands of those that will use them. While the turnout was positive, we found that a number of the “winners” chose not to purchase the knives. This is an inconvenience for the other people that were participating in the sale, and a waste of our time. Therefore, in our efforts to continuously improve all aspects of business, we decided to combine the ready-made sales with our private auction registration. So, now when you register with us, you become eligible to participate in our private auctions and ready-made sales. This is to ensure that participation in our auctions and ready-made sales is as transparent and fair as possible for all parties involved. Thank you.
