NorthernCrescentiron went above and beyond the call of duty to help me! I ordered an engraved knife as a gift for my Dad, who has been ill, and they put together a beautiful card, materials about how the knife was crafted and kept me posted about shipping along the way. You could not find easier people to work with!! Do not hesitate to place an order with these folks!!!!!!!!!

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take for my personalized knife or bottle opener order to ship? What if it's a group set?

Officially our ship times are 3-5 business days but that is the max. Our normal ship times are usually 2-3 business days, but it is not a problem if you need it in a hurry. If you ask we can accommodate. Just let us know in a conversation or in the notes when you need to receive your item/s and if there is a problem we will let you know right away. This is our ship out time, this does not include ship time in the mail.

As far as the ship time is concerned we ship USPS and you can find that info out on the shipping tab in the listing.

What do I do if I need to change my shipping address?

Just send us a message, we use a third party shipping service and can change your address instantly.

What shipping service do you use? Should I use my PO BOX or physical address?

We only use USPS (United States Postal Service). If you have a PO BOX only use that address.

Can I get something different stamped on each knife or bottle opener of my group set?

Yes.

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.

How do I figure out how many characters for my order?

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:

FTR
8.24.16

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:

Jeff
Bob
Bill
Joseph
Albert
Jon

This is a total of 26 characters for the order, average of 4.3 characters per item. 4-6 character option.

Where can I get a sheath for my knife?

We have our own in house custom made sheaths.

Check out our Knife Sheath section.
