Hello, my friend. I am facing international shipping problems again. A parcel can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months to arrive. This applies to the Finland - USA direction. A few months in transit is an exception, but it happens. Export takes a few days (or is there a mail ferry between Europe and the US?). The rest of the time the parcel is in US customs or in a sorting center. Why it takes so long. I daresay because of the use of regular postal service from Posti to USPS. It doesn't depend on whether I use economy or priority shipping. It does not apply to all of my shipments. It's like the lottery. Just keeping you guys informed so you don't tear me apart. Lol
A little bit of good news. I have more and more knife and gun models I can work with. Work in that direction doesn't stop for a day. So your favorite weapons will not be left out
With best regards. Vladimir
I am launching a new service that will solve two problems: it will allow you to have a pair made by me absolutely free of charge, and I will have the opportunity to work with a new model.
What does it mean. In this category (you can follow the link) I will publish a list of models of pistols, knives and other things that I am looking for. This applies to new models that are not yet provided in my workshop. Perhaps the stars will align and you have one of these models for which you would like something new for. I'll be ready to help with that. Production and delivery at my expense.
The condition is simple. To work with the new model, I need to digitize the originals. I will ask you to send original grips / scales to my studio. I sit down at the computer, pick up a caliper and other measuring instruments, and manually digitize with an accuracy of a hundredth of a millimeter. When the 3D model is ready, I will be able to develop any design for it that is possible. And my possibilities are
limited endless. After that, I send you back two pairs, the original and the design I made.
The service is free and one-time. Once the model is digitized, the listing for a free pair will be removed. Every year new models of pistols and knives appearing. This service will never stop. I hope I can count on you and you can load me with the work that I love so much.
With best regards. Vladimir.
Dear friends. Small innovations in the work of the Svechnikov Workshop (Gun Grips, Svechnikov Knives).
After moving to Finland, I started to procure material for the production of gun grips and knife scales on my own. This will allow me to add many other types of wood to the range. Already now you can request grips made of walnut, wenge, zebrano or other types of wood. Also, all current listings will be updated.
Friends! I successfully moved to Finland.
It will take me about a month to restore my production.
Thanks for your support!
At moment, doing business in Russia is completely paralyzed. I don't have access to Amazon, Etsy, eBay and PayPal. But connecting with world is still my priority. I see no reason to wait for situation to improve, so I made a number of important decisions.
I am in process of obtaining a residence permit in Finland. I can move in my own car and relocate my workshop. This will allow me to resume work on next day after arrival.
There is risk that nothing will work. They may not approve residence permit, close borders, or some other trouble will happen. Therefore, follow news on Instagram (Instagram is also blocked in Russia, lol).
Take care of yourself! With best regards, Vladimir
03/16 19:00 UPD! It is possible to pay on Gun Grips only with cryptocurrency
03/16 19:20 UPD! Shop on Amazon is unlocked. Thanks Denis! Delivery time increased due to current tensions
Today (February 27, 2022) Europe has closed air traffic for all aircraft from Russia. This means, with a 90% chance, that fastest delivery will not be available. I remember March 2020, when air traffic around the world was closed due to pandemic. Now there is another reason. I cannot know exactly how delivery will be organized and in what time parcels will be delivered. In 2020, road and sea routes were involved. Perhaps now it will be same. I will keep you updated with latest news.
02/27 19:32 UPD! + Canada, Iceland and Norway
03/01 20:16 UPD! Received an official letter from postal service. Delivery to countries with which air communication is closed will be carried out by land and sea. This will inevitably cause delays in delivery, but parcels will be delivered
It's possible to adapt a ready-made design to your gun model. If you liked one of ready-made designs, but it's not for your gun model, you can purchase any ready-made design for your gun model with comment in purchase order with name of design you need. For example. You liked ready-made design for Beretta, but you need this design for Ruger. You can purchase any ready-made design for Ruger, but in order comments be sure to indicate that you need a design, like on Beretta. For example "need Skull Snake design like Beretta". So I will understand that for Ruger it is necessary to adapt "Skull Snake" design. This adaptation will be free
Hello my dear friend!
Small news, but no less important. At moment, production time is 2 to 7 days before shipping. From now on, production time is extended to 2 weeks. This is due to increase in orders without loss of quality.
I also need more time to expand grips range and add new weapon models.
With love, Vladimir!
Good day, friends!
Today, there are partial or complete restrictions on international shipments from Russia to Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. But air traffic between United States and these countries is possible.
Service by Tiendamia acts as an intermediary and avoids problems with international delivery.
With best regards. Vladimir.
Dear friends! We survived. But it's too early to relax. Parcels sent from beginning of March were delivered at end of July. You have been waiting for almost half a year. I am very grateful to everyone who stood these long expectations! You are best!
There are rumors of a second wave of coronavirus. Rather, it will only affect tourism sector. International transportation should continue its work. World is too dependent on each other. But there are still delays. Before pandemic, delivery time was 15-20 days to anywhere in world. Now it is 1-2 months. We will survive this too.
I hope that you are all well, you and your loved ones are healthy!
With best regards. Vladimir.
