How to Order a Custom Cane




A. How to order a Custom Cane-


There is no order form for Custom Canes,  it would be a one on one discussion via email to decide on the model, handle choice and level of embellishment and budget you would like to work to. We have many different styles and options for personalizing our canes as can be seen in my file photos bellow. Please understand that each Custom Cane is built from  scratch, this level of old world craftsmanship takes time. The average build time for a "Full House" hand engraved custom cane is six months, once the 50% deposit has been secured. I use only the finest hand selected components for these unique custom canes with many hours of dedication to the finest details and attention to finishes making your BURGER CUSTOM CANE a truly UNIQUE ONE OFF CUSTOM CANE and Family heirloom piece


B. What levels of Custom Hand Engraving do we offer?-


We offer two levels of Custom Hand Engraving for our quality range of canes- 


1. The most economical option to personalize any of our canes is with  the DREMIL Hand Engraving option. This involves free hand engraving in beautiful script style font of name/initials and date. This style of dremil engraving is best suited for the blade of Mk2 models and up or collar of our quality range of canes. This level of Custom Hand Engraving will set back the shipping of the order by approximately ten days  and starts at $120- The other great custom engraving (option best suited for our most popular and versatile handle, Ball & Flute Turned Tamboti handle) is to engrave name/initials or basic logo on the dome of Tamboti handle, this level of engraving starts at $180-

The above levels of custom embellishment will set back the delivery date by approximately two weeks once order is confirmed.



2. A-GRADE (Best Grade Bespoke) Hand Engraving is the time honored art of hammer and chisel free Hand Engraving. This level of engraving is only recommended for our Mk2 model and up.  We have our standard engraving styles that are very popular and standard levels that we engrave our quality canes to. Definitions of the levels of engraving we can go to on our canes are as follows-


Full House Hand  Engraving - Incorporates Hand Engraving on all components of the cane, both sides of the blade to an approximate length of 130mm (5"), with matching engraving carried over to the collars, release button, ferrule and handle. Depending on handle choice we can also carry the engraving style over to the handle incorporating initials, name or Custom Logo or Family Crest. Custom Engraving of handle is best suited to the Titanium and 925 Sterling Silver handle. This level of Full House Engraving starts at $650 - $3700 depending on style of engraving and 24K gold inlay options. 



Other more economical option for best grade hand engraving would be to select just certain parts of the cane to be engraved- For example- just the blade cane be engraved or only the external components like the collars, release button and ferrule and  handle.

Another very Unique Custom Option Burger Canes can offer is the very rare and unique- STAINLESS DAMASCUS BLADE in the ODIN'S EYE pattern, we only build this custom option into our Top End Mk3 and Mk4 & Ti Stiletto model range. These unique Damascus blades compliment Best Grade hand engraving beautifully or is just a bespoke addition to an already unique piece of functional art.-The stainless Damascus blade upgrade adds $950- to the price of the cane.


The building of a Full House BEST-GRADE Hand Engraved Custom Canes takes time, between two and twelve months to complete depending on the level and style of hand engraving, all Custom Canes would require a 50% deposit to get custom work started once design and layout is finalized. I do not do detailed engraving sketches. These are very time consuming and with over 40 years of combined experience in hand engraving, design, layout and building of the worlds finest bespoke custom canes I assure you of only my finest craftsmanship and attention to detail on all custom canes. One can see the level of excellence we achieve in the many file photos and customers testimonial on the web site. 


So you now have the basics on building a truly Custom Cane with regards to- how to order, how much it will cost approximately and to what level we can work to. Please peruse the pictures on our web site to get a feel for the unique quality of Custom work we can offer and feel free to contact me
