How long will it take to receive a Bodega and when do I need to pay?

Once you purchase a knife and we receive payment, you are put in the queue for assembly. That way paying customers don’t have to wait in line behind people who flake out. We are back ordered at least 8 weeks at the moment on the Carbon Fibers and Field Grades. Please be patient and thank you for your support!

How do I get a Todd Begg custom?

Todd is currently back ordered multiple years, but if you want to get on the list you can contact us at: customerservice@beggknives.com and let us know what you are looking for.

Can I change or cancel my order?

Once you place an order we put you in line for assembly. Since each knife is made per order there is a 10% charge for any changes or cancellations to your order after 72 hours from purchase. Sorry, but there are no cancellations once we start on your knife.

Do you offer a “spa treatment”

Our basic spa treatment is $120 which includes disassembling the knife completely and giving it a full cleaning, re-greasing the IKBS, upgrading the detent ball to ceramic, re-polishing all screws/pivot and a re-sharpening and stropping on our leather wheel. In addition, If you have steel IKBS bearings we can upgrade to ceramic for an additional $55.

Which lubricant do you recommend for your ikbs folding knives? I have a black & blue and am LOVING IT‼️. Also, any guidance for maintenance-cleaning?

If the knife is fairly new and hasn’t been used extensively (in dirty, sandy, or dusty conditions), the IKBS bearings shouldn’t need any additional lubricant. Excess oil or grease will only attract dirt, lint, and grit. That being said, we use Sta-Lube Sta-Plex extreme pressure red grease.

On rare occasions, you may find that an extremely tiny amount of heavy oil will help the detent ball to glide over the blade. I use Nano-Oil, but any heavy, viscous oil should work.

By “extremely tiny,” I mean the following:

Put a single drop of heavy oil on a non-porous surface. Then, touch the pointy end of a needle to that drop of oil. Finally, with your knife open, touch the needle to the detent ball, transferring a *tiny* amount of oil. Try not to get any oil on either the lock tip or blade’s lock ramp.

If, at some point down the road, your knife accumulates a bunch of pocket lint on the inside, a quick burst of compressed air usually clears most of it out. Other maintenance items would be occasionally wiping the blade with a light oil, and, to help the blue color pop, use Windex on a microfiber cloth to remove skin oils from the anodized parts.

Eventually, your knife’s bearings will need to be cleaned and re-greased, and, if possible, it’s best to have us do that job.

I have a FG bodega with g10 scales and really would like to have carbon fiber scales instead of the g10 ones … Can you please send me carbon fiber scales?

Sorry but we do not switch out scales.
