Like you, I hate the thought of my private data being sold to third parties who then shop it around the world. So, under no circumstances will I forward any personal information to anyone. This includes a request from one client who wants to contact another.
https://www.riflebirdknives.com contains links to social media. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another website. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policies may differ from ours.
Often someone will ask me for the contact details of other knife makers, gun smiths, engravers, etc. I will forward those to you in a professional capacity.
Like you, I hate being pestered by spam. So, I will never contact a former customer unless it's referring to an ongoing sale or custom order or in response to an email they have sent me. That being said, let me be clear about one thing. I do really enjoy hearing back from folks who have and use my knives, so please send me an email if you have something to say. It's just that I won't chase that from customers as I don't want to invade their privacy.
