Backlog Notice

KNIFE SHEATH ORDERS ARE CLOSED

 

COVID-19 has impacted every single one of us, in one way or another. When the lockdowns began, we had no idea what was going to happen to our business. Thankfully, we ended up being one of the fortunate few in this country that thrived during this pandemic. Almost exactly one year ago, our demand increased significantly, as well as our order backlog. We have reached a point in which we need to take action in order to clear out this order backlog.

 

As of Sunday May 2nd we are no longer be accepting new orders for our Made to Order Knife Sheaths.

 

For those with existing sheath orders: THERE IS NO CHANGE TO YOUR ORDER. We will continue building existing sheath orders on schedule.

 

This does not mean we are done making knife sheaths forever, we are just not accepting new knife sheath orders at this time so that we can put all of our focus on clearing out our backlog. We will still be actively stocking our “Quick Ship Gear” products, such as our Kydex Sheath Adapters, Pouches, Micarta/Leather Strops, Spool Cards, and other accessories.

This was not an easy decision. For months we have tried to get our lead time back down to a manageable level, but we have simply hit our maximum production capacity. The level of skill involved to produce these sheaths has made hiring and training employees a challenge, even before COVID-19. After we clear out our backlog we will be restructuring our business so that we can better meet existing demand, as well as position ourselves for increased growth.

As far as to when we will be offering knife sheaths again, we do not have a definitive answer. Right now our focus is to clear out our order backlog. We ask that you refrain from contacting us regarding a time frame as to when we will be offering knife sheaths again. We will notify our email subscribers as well as post on our Social Media pages for any updates on our production.

 

While we will not be accepting new knife sheath orders, we will still actively stock our “Quick Ship Gear” items, and have plans to bring back updated versions of our older products such as our Leatherman Pouches, Compass Pouches, as well as a few other brand new products.

 

We wouldnt be where we are without you guys. We are eternally grateful for all of your business throughout the years. Our knife sheaths will be back, I can assure you. Sometimes you need to take a step back so you can take a leap forward.

 

Never Cease From Exploration
