As a learning maker, if I'm making a knife that features something I've done for the first time, heat treating my first blade, first hidden tang, first solder job, etc, I'll "pay" my customers to try it out. If there is an obvious defect, of course I will not sell. This is manifested in a discount and understanding that there are no refunds, however I will repair any problem if I can.

This allows me to still mitigate the cost of learning the trade while getting some feedback.
