Further Options: In order to get the strongest knife available I use a combination of special heat treatments, a tri a symmetrical grind, and a steel selection that resists breakage and allows the knife to be exceptionally strong without being forged. Then, if that's not enough, I offer a hot enhancement option, that includes everything humanly possible to make your knife almost unbreakable. Hot Enhancement +$225.00 = Hand Forged, Triple Thermo Quenched, Cryogenic Freeze, Triple tempered....Hot enhancement turns an industrial strength tool into a super knife enhancing the breakage resistance and edge holding x 4 These enhancements are for the most demanding users. In practicality you won't need them but they are available and can be applied to any of the steels.
Customization : Customization of cataloged models is available usually for a small extra fee. This would include but not limited to changes in blade length, handle material additional overall length etc. Customizations are no problem so long as they do not defeat the integrity of the model.
Custom Build: If you want something completely different than what is seen in the catalog, I also take Custom orders.
You can get a rough idea of the price you might pay by checking my catalog. Select a knife with specs close to what you have in mind, then add $125.00 (length, width, etc) There is also a $50.00 drawing fee which includes as many drawings as required to achieve the desired shape of the knife. (Sample drawings upon request.) Customer input and approval is paramount in the process so set aside time to comment etc.
Custom order process:
#1 You tell me what you have in mind, and provide detailed description, a rough sketch,or photo.
#2 I will return a quote, listing the different available steels, optional enhancements, handle materials,sheaths etc.
#3 You select what suits your needs, add up your total and remit payment.
#4 I confirm specs and submit drawings until you are happy with the shape of the knife.
#5 I resubmit to you both drawing and spec sheet for final approval.
#6 Your knife is put into production. Wait time for Custom designs is 24 weeks or less.
RUSH Ordering for Cataloged and Customized: Each Relentless knife is completely handmade for you by me in my shop. So, there is a waiting period during which I make your knife. Some people can not or will not wait, so, Wait time can be reduced to 6 weeks for Hot Enhanced knives and 4 weeks on cataloged models by paying an additional rush fee of $100.00....Just include the extra fee and mark RUSH on your order description. Should you need the knife quicker than that, I can do it in three and two weeks respectively for an additional $100.00. So mark your order Super Rush and include $200.00 additional. Keep in mind that I have many orders, and your order is in a line with others. The rush fee is because I do not slow down others orders for your rush, but simply do nothing that I would usually do while completing your order which results in personal matters being on hold etc etc.
RUSH CUSTOM Builds: Rushing Custom Builds is not recommended, but if you want it and it is possible the fee depends on the build and is more than the Rush and Super Rush listed above
Photos: I can provide photos of your knife being made from beginning to end. This takes extra time and often the help of others who may or may not share our enthusiasm for knives and their making. Since most of the time making your knife requires me to use both hands, I have to employ help for this task. and the photographers fee is $100.00
Available knives: My web site sometimes lists available knives for sale. These are knives that I make and sell. They are usually cataloged models, but sometimes they are prototypes, or just non cataloged knives that I wanted to make. There is no predetermined schedule for these. If you want one I simply suggest you watch the available knives pages.

Steel selection chart: I use the ones with Green dots
Wear resistance=edge holding ability Toughness=resistance to strong lateral force without deformation or breakage.
Zone tempering: included with all RELENTLESS knives=a process that increases the toughness of the steel considerably without affecting edge holding ability. The Chart reflects the toughness before Zone tempering. After Zone tempering the toughness is further improved.
5160 (most economical) is a very strong steel so your knife will never break, but it rusts easily and requires frequent sharpening.
8670M/L6 Slightly less toughness than 5160 with twice the edge holding ability. More economical than CPM steels. Non Stainless
CPM s30V Excellent resistance to later force Superior edge holding ability greatly reducing the chore of sharpening, and wearing away of the knife. Also stainless and resists rust unless exposed to salt water without rinse for 2 days.
CPM S35V High performance stainless steel. Improved s30V formula offers you a better finish with more strength and ability to resist lateral force. It sharpens easily compared to most steel with extreme edge holding ability. It resists rust and corrosion far better than most stainless steels, although more expensive. It is the best choice for a stainless extreme use knife available today.
CPM 3VSuper High performance Semi stainless steel. Super performance with strength far exceeding all of the above. More expensive due to its difficulty to work with, but completely worth the extra price for a knife that will endure brutally extreme conditions.
All Relentless knives are ZONE tempered Zone tempering slightly reduces rust resistance so it is recommended that the knife be kept clean and dry with a light coating of any oil or rust inhibitor. This process greatly enhances the excellent properties of the steels selected for their strength and durability.
OPTIONAL: Hot Enhancement=Hand Forged, Triple Thermo Quenched, Cryogenic Freeze, Triple tempered. Hot enhancement turns an industrial strength tool into a super knife enhancing the breakage resistance and edge holding x4
These enhancements are for the most demanding users. In practicality you won't need them unless you plan on building cities in the jungle with your knife as your only tool.
NOTE: All of the above steels are chosen for their strength and durability. Your knife will withstand extreme use with any of the above steels.
