Here is the latest from GEC this morning. The blade openers have been shipped on Friday so I will have them tomorrow. The knives should be shipped to me today and I should have them Wed. I have all day Friday scheduled to get them mailed out. Sorry for the longer wait on them, thanks Mike

Let me tell you that Donna and I were up last night getting all the knives ready to ship and most are gone this morning and I have a few to mail this afternoon. All of the knives that have been paid for are in the mail. Waiting payment on a few and then they will go out. I can't wait to see pictures posted and hear comments. I will tell you that I almost gave all the money back and kept them ::ds:: ::ds:: !!!!

@#&%! I missed this pre-order, and I'm a big fan of the Eureka pattern ::dang::. The Tidiouts are nice enough, but I miss the bells and whistles.

If anyone has a spare in wood or decent stag, please look me up. ::pray::

He will respond rather quickly
