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 email@example.com)
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.

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!

Assembly is still going strong! We are currently beginning to ship double edge tumbled titanium and double edge marbled carbon fiber designs.
We have the material for the standard carbon fiber design options on hand and have begun production for those!
Expected Shipping Time-Frames:
I also updated the FAQ section of the website regarding factory knife warranties. Factory knife warranty work isn't covered under our warranty. We can work on pretty much any G&G Hawk/ ZT or Kershaw design. Price depends upon inspection. Visit the FAQ navigation bar to see our other frequently asked questions.

Exciting news! Deadlocks have begun shipping out again! If you have already paid or received an invoice, you can expect your knife to ship this week. Hopefully we don't come across any more delays, and can go full speed ahead. I sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we have worked through production issues.
Updated Expected Shipping Times:
We are going to need to upgrade one of the internal parts, which has caused a slight delay in production. Upgraded parts are being made currently, and we should be back to shipping within 1-2 weeks. We sincerely apologize for the unforeseen delay, and appreciate your patience and understanding. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.

We are currently shipping the last bit of glass bead blasted Deadlocks and have started assembly on the first few tumbled titanium Deadlocks! If you have a tumbled titanium knife on order, expect an invoice within the next month or so.
Glass Bead Blasted Titanium: Now Shipping- Almost Done!
Tumbled Titanium: Assembly has started- 1-2 months
Carbon Fiber: 3-4 months
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.
