Hello everyone! We ran into a little bit of a setback this week during assembly, so we are waiting on replacement parts to get here. We had a few stop plates with a bad heat treat, but we have new ones on the way. Once they arrive we'll be back to assembly.
We only have about 40 more glass bead blasted knives to make, and we'll be moving onto tumbled titanium next.
Current expected ship times:
* Glass bead blasted: within 1-2 months
* Tumbled titanium: 2-3 months
* All carbon fiber: 3-5 months
If you have any questions, feel free to post them below!
We appreciate your patience and support.
Batch 7 is in full swing.
We are currently fulfilling orders for glass bead blasted Deadlocks- so if you have one on order expect to receive an invoice from us within the next couple of weeks if you haven't already. We'll be moving on to tumbled titanium next, hopefully within the next month. Carbon fiber is still scheduled to be the second half of this batch.
Batch 7 assembly officially begins tomorrow, September 25th! We'll be starting with titanium handled designs first.
We have gotten a lot of feedback about the unreliability of emails. Sometimes they get filtered into spam/junk folders and never reach the light of day. Since this is the main avenue we use to update our customers of new batches, placing orders, and getting the latest news we wanted to figure something out to help ensure it's easy for you to receive.

I've been getting a lot of emails inquiring about when we'll be shipping out Batch 7 knives.
Titanium Deadlock customers; you will be receiving your knife first! Initial shipping should start within 1-2 months.
Carbon Fiber customers; we are waiting on more carbon fiber, which is why we're starting with titanium. Your knives should start to ship within 4 months or so.
I'll keep this as updated as possible. Any new information I have will be posted ASAP.

I want to apologize to anyone who experienced credit card issues with the release of Batch 7 orders.
Fun fact: PayPal changed their terms and conditions once again, so we will be going back to PayPal for most things- but now we do have the option of taking credit card payments if needed. We can only take payments this way for customers who live in a state where the Deadlock is legal. It is your responsibility to know and abide by your local laws. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Batch 7 customers- if you have any issues regarding your order/ payment, please reach out and let me know. I'll get it fixed ASAP.
