I have been anodizing titanium since 2009 and have learned a lot after anodizing thousands of pieces. If you have anything made of titanium you would like to get anodized, please feel free to contact me using the contact page and I can quote you a custom price. For a general idea on what I would charge, for something up to the size of a large folding knife, it would be about $20 plus shipping back to you (For any anodizing that involves the color yellow, magenta, or green, there is an additional $20 fee). If you need the piece polished, stone washed, or sandblasted as well, it would be $40 plus shipping. An additional fee of $10 would apply to pieces which need to be sanded down before they can be polished, such as a piece with a pre existing sandblasted finish or a piece that has deep scratches. This only applies to pieces which need to be polished. Any knife handles that need to be anodized must be disassembled prior to shipping (including all screws and detent tab if applicable). I cannot anodize pieces with anything attached to them, such as screws or knife blades. I can take apart knives for a fee of $30 if you prefer me to do it. Any handles sent partially assembled will be charged the full disassembly fee. I can also clean and lubricate the pivot of your knife for an additional $10. The options listed on this page are the basic fees you are looking at. Some of the anodizing options are not listed. You can use the "Special Anodizing Requests" section to let me know any special requests you have (for example, you may want to anodize the pocket clip of your knife a high polish blue, even though you selected a sandblasted random snail trail for the scales). Please be aware that some of these requests may have an additional fee which is not charged when you make your selection. If I have any questions, I will email you to discuss your requests and no work will be done until we are both on the same page. Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions on specific pricing, and options before or after placing your order. I usually reply to emails within hours of receiving them.
Steps to sending in work:
- Pack the piece(s) to be anodized well. Include a paper with a description of the work you want done. Include your return address, email, and phone number as well, in case I have any questions.
-Ship the item via USPS to :
P.O. Box 450652
Miami, FL 33245
If you feel the need to insure the package, please do so. Insurance back to you can be selected from the drop down menu. Selecting shipping with insurance during checkout will only cover the price you are paying for the work. So if you want insurance, please select the amount from the drop down menu.
Turnaround time on work varies on the amount of work that has come in before your order, but my average turnaround is 4 to 5 business days from the date I receive your package.
