Starting January of 2019, I'm going to do a different set of scales every month. These will only be available for that month and then I'll move on to the next design.

A couple years ago, Keith from CombatBeads and I did a few collabs together on a few one-off Swiss Army knives. I'm very excited to work with him again. He takes my copper scales and does his voodoo to get these crazy dark and absolutely stunning results.

For March, we are releasing what you see here, dark copper with an outdoor theme etch. Note that this is only a prototype, the actual design will be on the cross side of the knife. The rear hex will still be dark, but it won't have any designs on it.

As with all of my builds, you get to choose the tools you want. These are full custom builds, not just scales.

*** For those that do not want a full custom Swiss Army knife but want to participate in the limited-edition monthly releases, I will have smaller items available. The previous month's have been SAK Lifters. This month Keith is doing the tag you see in the photos but with your choice of one of the icons on the knife. Your choice will be either the paddles, the fish, the campfire, or the tent. ** NOTE that the tags do not come with a bead.

Keith is offering either a bronze or copper version of his Reload and his Civilian beads. The Reload is on the left of his photo and the Civilian is to the right. You can also choose to buy a set of each to save $10 but one will be bronze and one will be copper and the choice will be random.

AND Jon Hill is excited to be involved with his beautiful leather sheaths custom made for these. He makes a lot of sheaths for Keith's work, as well as ones for my CenterBrass targets, and I'm blessed to have him on board for this month as well.

I hope you guys are excited about this as I am. Each month is going to be a surprise but just know that I have some makers already excited to be a part of this and I have some really great ideas for each month. I'll drop a little hint for those that are paying attention ... not every month will be 93mm, 84mm is right around the corner!

In addition, each product sold will come with a sticker that will also be unique to that month. I'll post the stickers as soon as I get them in.

Please note that this is a pre-order.. I will only be able to accept orders until the end of the month. Depending on the popularity of these, I might not be able to get them built and mailed out at the first of every month.

You should be able to do everything you want with the options below. If you need something that's not available send me an email through the contact form and I'll get back with you as soon as I can.

If you are looking for my regular SAK customs, you can find those on the main page of the website. Those are available in titanium, copper, and brass and all come with with the traditional cross cutout on the front scale and the 1/4" hex cutout on the back.

Extras:
Unlike other builds, you will not have an option on hardware for these knives. They will not have a pocket clip option and they will all be built with black screws.

These will come with a certificate of authenticity. The inside of each scale is also stamped with a matching serial number that will also be printed on the COA. US shipping will be in a small Flat Rate box. International shipping will be First Class with tracking.

** A few things to note:

I'm going to apologize up front for this, but I will not lie on a customs form or create a fake one. I will use the proper amount of the item. Please note this if you are ordering from a country with high customs fees.

While these knives are assembled with removable screws, I do not encourage taking them apart. They are held together with a lot of tension and it's very difficult to reassemble. I use blue Loctite to make sure the screws don't come loose during use. If you do take it apart and cannot reassemble it yourself, just send it back and I'll be glad to reassemble it for you.

The tools in some of these knives sit very close to each other. If you choose to have your tools stonewashed, it's possible that the tools will rub against each other and cause wear spots. While this doesn't interfere with the operation of the knife, it does interfere with the aesthetics.

I use washers between the stainless tools and the titanium scales. Like every other knife in your collection, there will be a small gap between the tools and the scales.

And as always, thank you for your support!

===========================

If you're not sure which tools are included with each model, a great place to check out is sakwiki.com. Look under the 93mm section and you'll find a link to each configuration. Another good resource is smartknives.com. It has a few broken links but a little googling, common sense, and altering of the URL will help you get past some of those.

===========================

This website, BigCartel, doesn't have an easy way to calculate shipping for every country so I'm going to list it at a flat rate. If your shipping is below that amount, I will refund the difference back to you.
