*Updated Production Anouncement for Fall 2016*
Gorgets are still available but the hiatus from custom and spring steel armor continues!
Back in 2014 I went on "hiatus" from custom work and all of my spring steel armour work due to the brilliant descision to build a an ambitious timber frame new barn-home with a large workshop and get married in the same year. As my wife and I are building everything ourselves (including milling our own lumber at this stage) it has taken far longer than we naively anticipated. While we were able to move in during the summer of 2015, construction is ongoing and thus I am still not quite full-time in the metal shop. We're getting there though, should only be another year before we are "done-ish".
In the meantime, since the volume of gorget orders continues to increase, I have been unable to catch up enough to keep up an inventory for years now and thus every 2 weeks or so I make a batch of gorgets to cover the orders that have come in during the previous 2 weeks.
Therefore please expect a lead time of about 2 weeks between when you place your order and when your gorget ships. During October and November the lead time may be as much as 3 weeks as I wrap up as much exterior construction work as possible before winter.
Thank you all for your continued patience and business.
