We do this every year, and every year it seems like we are doing a sales job but this is just good advice. Croft are already running on 5 weeks lead time, won't be long before that builds to 6 and the other British manufacturers are the same. Rocky Mountain is on 8 weeks as we type. If you want your handmade handles on before Christmas we suggest you get your tush to our showroom or onto our website STAT!
