This is a large forged steel butterfly.

It is forged by hand and welded. It has a brushed bronze finish and has 5 coats of very tough Permalac brand exterior clear coating. This piece can also have a clear powder coating upon request for an extra charge.

it is 48" (4 feet) wide. All dimensions are in the diagram photo of this listing.


Normally it would be 3-6 weeks from time of order to begin fabrication on a piece like this and 2 weeks fabrication time.

This piece comes crated in an very secure, enclosed 4'x3' palette. (I have photos of how we crate this piece for shipment. If you are interested in one of these email me and I can send you photos of how we prepare it for shipment.) This piece weighs approximately 175lbs when shipped with the crate. $3500 insurance is also apart of the shipping charge.

I am fairly certain $450 should cover shipment of this piece any where in the United States. The exact shipping bill will be emailed to you in the form of a PDF file upon shipment. If the amount is less than $450 the difference will be refunded to your PayPal account or a check will be mailed to your shipping address. If for whatever reason the amount is more the difference would be expected to be paid.

If you live outside the United States contact me and I can get an exact quote and post you a custom shipping charge on a customized listing.

This piece also comes with a DVD with video and photos of your specific piece being made. A word document as well as printed installation instructions. It also comes with a sheet metal template of the hanging bracket and diagram.

I can also make this piece custom. Custom wings may or may not change the price. Custom size will change the price. Backgrounds can also be added to this piece. Contact me to discuss your custom piece you can email photos of different wing patterns and I will email you sketches of the proposed piece and price.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this listing,

You do not have to get the same thing on each knife or bottle opener. you can have whatever you want stamped on each one.
It's not hard. Really.

Single knife or opener:

Just add up how many letters or numbers are being stamped on the item and select that option in the drop down. Dots and spaces we do NOT count as characters.

Group sets:

Example 1:

If you are getting a bottle opener set of 6, and you are getting 3 initials and a common date on all, for instance:


The character selection for the set would be 7-10 characters.

Example 2:

If you are getting different names on each you would tally up the TOTAL number of characters in the order and divide that total by the number of items. Example:


This is a total of 26 characters for the order, average of 4.3 characters per item. 4-6 character option.
We highly recommend this seller. Specifically the sheaths for this linked section.
