    Yo, guys.

    Here's a couple ways to get one of my knives if you're interested.

    Sign up for the contact list! See how in post #2 below.



    Please feel free to download a catalog to get info on what's available as a frame of reference. Pricing information is not current at this time.

    Catalog can be downloaded here:

    http://www.turleyknives.com/

    Just scroll down a little and click the link.


    You can check out a couple different places for any "extra" knives I might have.
    It's rare but sometimes I get a chance to do an extra knife to put up for sale or a customer might back out on a knife.

    The first place to check for an available knife is my website. You can sing up for a free membership there and get a notification for any knives that regularly become available.






    If you have any questions just shoot me an email, I'd be happy to help anyway I can.
    Thanks for looking and thanks for your support.

    The contact list is now open

    Here's how the contact list works.

    As the name implies this is a promise to contact list. I'll put you on the list with the understanding that I honestly have no idea when I'll get to your order(s). It's just a list for me to go through and contact you when your name rolls around in the natural order of things. When I do contact you, you can order up to five knives (and possibly custom gear) if you like. When I contact you I will ask what you'd like and then give you the current price and wait time. You can then tell me "yes let's do it" or "no thanks". There is no obligation on your part to keep your spot. There is no money up front. You only pay once the item is finished and I send you pictures.
    Please understand that in most cases each item must be paid for as it is completed, even if you have more than one item on order. For example if you order five knives, the first knife will be made (possibly two at once) and then payment will be due. I'll send those two knives and then start work on the next knife. etc. I know that's a hassle because shipping charges can add up for you but I can't afford to make five high dollar knives and then have someone not pay. Like most of the world it's an unfortunate fact that I also live paycheck to paycheck for the most part.
    However if you don't like that arrangement then you can put your name on the list multiple times, spread out over a few months. That way you can still get several knives but won't have to take a huge chunck out of your budget all in one short time period.
    If you're on the contact list you can (if you like) order up to five knives or pieces of gear. With that in mind, I know it's a big chunk of change all at once to come up with so you can bump your remaining orders back if you want. To kind of spread them out.

    Here's how it works.

    I contact you for your first order. You say yeah I want a green river. I say no sweat and thank you. Then you say, I really want two more knives but don't have the money right now.
    I say, No sweat, just holler at me when you want the other two orders. Or one and then wait a while for the second one too. Just holler at me with your next order, I'll send a price quote and wait time back. No worries.
    You can do this with all five orders. No matter how long you wait in between orders.
    Wait time wont' be long. It will just be long enough for me to finish the current orders I have promised at that time. So probably no longer than a month or so and then I will schedule your next order in.
    This will be the case unless I get a whole bunch of people doing it at one time. Then the wait will be a little longer because I still want to be making progress on the list. At any rate, we'll work it out.

    Another bonus is that all returning customers get 5% off. This is good for your remaining orders. Just remind me you're a returning customer.

    The above also applies to you guys who already have bought a knife from me in years past. So don't forget to tell me you are a previous customer!

    Holler if you have questions. Thanks!

    Shoot me an email at turley knives @ gmail.com (no spaces) if you'd like to be placed on the list. Thanks for looking!

    One last thing I should mention. This being merely a list of names with no order numbers I have no good way of finding one individual name on the list. So if you contact me and ask where you are on the list or if you're on the list, please know that I'm not being rude or unconcerned when I say "I don't know". Truth is, I really don't and it would take me a very long time to find it. With that in mind, if you email me to get on the contact list definitely keep the reply email I send. At least that way you will know you're on the list for sure.

    Might I recommend that you send out the notifier to someone of at least 60 years of age for a spell check first. :54:

    I remember that M. River that was sitting there unsold when I checked the store.

    Scared me so bad that I passed on it.

    Iz, for truth in advertising I think you need to change the title of this thread to "how to TRY and get a Turley". As I sit on the list at 380 and 450 this thread title mocks me everytime I enter the subforum; right now there is a lot more trying than getting:3:

    He's right Iz. You need to update, popularity has had its impact to say the least.

    How to get a Turley knife....

    1). Two years ago you got a quote, and put your name on a list
    2). Then you pay for it this year.
    3). Open the box when it comes to your door

    Simple.

    i look at it like this... if people wait for years, and are happy to wait for years, then it MUST be worth waiting for. i have never heard a single complaint about a turley knife (other than people wanting another one ...or seven) so, 2-5 years down the road when my time comes up, i will be very grateful, and surely tired of waiting, :)

    I tried signing up for the membership but kept getting timeout errors, even if I was on the signup page for less than a minute. Is it just my phone or is their a glitch?

    Probably a glitch, bro. I apologize for that. The site has been screwy the past couple days. And membership sign up has always been a sketchy deal, I wish I could fix it. But it's on the provider's side of things.
    Maybe give it try in a couple days if you're not sick of it by then.
    But I'll be posting a notice here from now on also anytime I put a knife up for sale. Too many members aren't getting the emails I'm sending out.
    Thanks for your interest, very much.

    I've been eyeballing them for awhile. Just put my name on the wait list so hopefully I'll have one in my hands within the next few years. I just wish I could try a couple in my hand since I can be picky on grip.

    I appreciate it, man.
    Maybe if you get a chance to go to a meet somebody might have one you could use. But that's not always a good indicator either because I've changed the way I shape the handles and a lot of the knives out there are the old handle style.

    You can get them on the secondary market, and while not cheap, they are worth every penny!

    Just to make sure I'm not a complete moron, the actual order list is closed and once you work through that you're moving onto the wait list? Or could I have ordered a knife two years ago and be close to having it now?

    Yes, first question is correct.
    Second question: I don't remember when I closed the order list. If it was two years ago or more or less. But yes, before I closed the order list you could have ordered a knife and had it in a couple years. Maybe three.
