TEX-MADE Knives is a new venture for the team here at Dixie Cowboy. I am always saving small pieces of wood, horn and bone to repurpose later on down the road and I've finally found a good way to re-use them making handles and knives. All our products are made right here in Texas... currently Galveston, Texas to be exact. They are indeed MADE IN THE USA and we work very hard to create a handmade item at a reasonable cost. Fact is, we are probably charging way less then we should be :D
If a sheath is pictured in the listing and mentioned in the title it is included free of charge. Not all knives come with sheaths for a multitude of reasons so please review the pics if you are concerned about getting a sheath.
Overall length 11.1”
Blade length 6.65”
Blade Widest point 2.5”
We are currently both 15N20 and 1095 high and low carbon steel that is then folded & forged several times to obtain hundreds of layers. Then we have heat treated and oil quenched it acquire a hardness of HRC 55 to 60 on the Rockwell Scale.
We are using all USA made materials. On rare occasions we run out of things like snaps and have to purchase them locally. In that situation, while rare, the snap may not be USA made. I just want to be as transparent and honest as possible.
CARE / STORAGE
All non stainless steel blades will rust and can be affect by damp and corrosive environments. It is therefore recommended to dry the blade after use. Touch and exposed steel, such as your blade, with your hands will leave oils and salts that will eat their way into your blade and eventually leave pits. The best way to avoid this is not touch the blade and to wipe off the blade if it's touched.
Your blade, being steel, will appreciate regular coats of a clean, non organic oil. This prevents moisture from reaching the blade. A light oil such as sewing machine oil, mineral oil, gun oil will do the trick but the oil should be changed regularly by wiping the blade with a soft cloth until dry and then applying more.
1-3 business days
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We can not accept returns on items like combs and brushes etc... I could never in good faith accept a used comb back and resell it nor can we take your word for it that you didn't brush with it :P. Just the thought of it makes me cringe typing this :P If you ordered something that wound up not being perfect for you then do get in touch and we can chat about giving you a discount code to try another item. BUT under no circumstance can I even think about taking back those kinds of items. We love our customers and always use the highest standards when it comes to health and safety.
Our typical packaging consists of brand new heavyweight boxes and new bubble wrap... BUT .... we hate waste here whether it's horn chunks, wood pieces or even packaging items we get ourselves. SOOOOO I always keep a big box full of brown recycled paper, used bubble wrap, air pillows and anything else I can reuse. We don't normally ship with it UNLESS someone asks so PLEASE PLEASE just add a note with your order if you would like Green packaging.
This seems to be the number one thing I've had emails about recently. All animals are treated with respect and dignity. When possible the material is sourced right on our farm but when needed we buy from other suppliers. It goes without saying that our GOAT and HORSE hair brushes are from "no kill" animals. Our boar hair is sourced in Texas from several places and is collected from wild boar who are hunted and processed for meat. There is no cruelty involved and all boars are dispersed as humanely as possible. Hair collection is only done when animal is processed after death.
Our animal hair is sourced right here in Texas. All our wood is sourced right here as well but there are a couple for obvious reasons like they don't grow in Texas that are sourced elsewhere. Same with the horns
We love what we make and our handmade items take up most of our free time these days. We treat each one like it's our artistic interpretation and as a piece of art. We no longer accept custom or personalized orders as what little free time goes into creating more product for our shop. Thank you for understanding.
Where applicable we will give an idea of the ingredients in the product. We do this for the love and all items are as advertised so if we say something is "glycol free" or "soy free" etc... it is. We love these products and we love you (our customers) so rest assured that our products are 100% as advertised. BUT, if you have a specific allergy please just email us and we can tell you if it's safe.
We are always happy to work with store owners, barber shops, online resellers and anyone who wants to sell Dixie Cowboy Products. Just send us a message and we can work on a custom wholesale order just for you. We are not currently wholesaling our handmade combs and brushes, it is just impossible to mass produce these at this time. Some minimums apply when placing items for resale.
