Notes on shipping: International Deadline is Nov 16th. Australia shipping deadline is Dec 8th and Pick-Up Deadline is Christmas Eve. Cash upon pickup is always the preferred method. Its quicker and more secure than Auspost. But most importantly, A big reason why I do this is for yall and I love to (socially distance) shake the hand of all my customers. You can come around the workshop and see where the knife is made. Cash Upon Pickup also waves process and shipping fees! 😉

Bud is a great guy with passion and skill in bucket loads. His dedication and creativity to the task meant that I got a unique, practical and beautiful knife that I will be proud to hand down the generations. May these skills endure. Thank you
It was a pleasure dealing with Etokra from the beginning. Once we had decided we wanted a full set of knives, he worked with us on design. I was able to incorporate a camping knife into the collection using an old file from my late father’s garage. This is now a memento to be handed down.
The custom Etokra knives 13Knives made my parents made a wonderful Christmas present. They use them everyday. Good work Bud!
