We are nearly through the first 30 days of January's Drop! Production is going smoothly and the Hawk Team is already shipping some out. Roughly a quarter of the Double Edge Deadlocks are completed and boxed up awaiting their new homes. If you receive an invoice from Elk Creek Corporation or Hawk Knife Designs, that means your Deadlock is ready!
We are currently working through the blue and bronze anodized Deadlocks (less than 30 to go!); then we'll be assembling double edge, heat colored Deadlocks. Batch 9 delivery should be complete by the end of the year.
We are not going to be taking deposits for the new batch until beginning of 2021.
We hope you and your loved ones are staying sane & healthy during this unprecedented time.
We are excited to announce we have some new Hawk Knives merchandise going live Monday, September 28th, 2020!
We will have:
We'll ship everything flat rate, and you can purchase directly here from the website- simply go to the "Merchandise" tab in the navigation bar.
We'll have apparel coming soon! Stay tuned.
I am invoicing and shipping Batch 9 double edge, tumbled titanium Deadlocks currently. If you have one on order, expect an invoice from Elk Creek Corporation within the next couple of weeks.
Batch 8 is wrapped up and we are officially onto Batch 9. Assembly has already begun. I'll be shipping a lot of tumbled titanium Batch 9 Deadlocks to start with, so keep an eye out for invoices from us via PayPal. Fulfillment of Batch 9 should take 3-4 months. We hope to be taking deposits for Batch 10 sometime around the end of 2020.
Check back for more updates on where things are at in production for Batch 9!
Batch 8 is over half way fulfilled! We hope to fulfill all remaining orders by the beginning of September.
I'm happy to announce we have already started shipping Batch 8 knives! Right now I have a mixture of colors coming through vs. one single design, so it's hard for me to say who should expect their knife first; however, if you have a single edge knife or the tumbled accent option, expect an invoice from me soon.
ALL heat colored versions will be sporting blue screws from here on out.
I just put up ALL the newest information about Batch 8, including pictures, design options, pricing information, and how to order over on the Deadlock page. Check it out!
Batch 7 is officially done, with a few more shipments heading out the door this upcoming week. As soon as we take orders for Batch 8, assembly will begin!
If you are waiting on a Batch 7 knife and haven't heard from me, please send over an email to email@example.com. I have sent out all remaining invoices.
Batch 7 is coming along nicely! We are going to soon be waiting on certain parts and materials to arrive, though it should only affect things momentarily. (If you are waiting on a knife and need to discuss payment options, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are officially down to the last 100 orders, and should be wrapping up Batch 7 by the end of May.
Production for Batch 8 has already started! We hope to announce all the details within the next month or so*. Be sure to subscribe to our OTF newsletter, and opt in to our text messaging system to ensure you receive all the latest updates.
We haven't sent out a newsletter in quite a while, but there hasn't been much to report other than the updates posted here.
More to come! Thank you all so much for your patience, interest, and support. We're excited to bring you more Deadlocks soon.
India & the Hawk Team
We've gotten a few emails inquiring about how production of Batch 7 Deadlocks is being affected due to the Corona-virus pandemic we're all currently facing. Fortunately, we are based in the mountains and all of our employees live right next to the shop, so even though we are safely practicing social distancing we're able to keep things going pretty much as normal.
We're shipping out knives every week, and production is moving forward.
Shipping times should not be delayed due to the virus, unless something happens that is out of our hands.
That being said, we also recognize that this has all caused some potential financial hardship and uncertainty. Due to this fact, we are asking you to let us know where you fall out of the following options.
We are currently finalizing the design options for Batch 8! Stay tuned via our Instagram and Facebook for pictures. We plan on opening up the books for deposits in 1-2 months, given the world hasn't come to an end by then. We'll be announcing all the details once things are finalized. We look forward to sharing that with you guys soon!
