Referencing GEC's production schedule ( http://greateasterncutlery.net/blog/pro ... -schedule/ ) it appears (SWAG) they will be ready to ship late this month or more likely the first half of next month. Keep your eye on GEC's "What's in Production".

Thanks Jerry.

I guess I'm used to having to pre-order a forum knife but I've never purchased an AAPK forum knife before. These are almost in production and I still don't know exactly what I have to do to buy one. I'm over thinking it, I'm sure. I'm just paranoid that I'll miss out but I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to purchase one if I like the handle material.

I haven't kept on AAPK forum knives from the past. Do they generally sell out fast?

Hi everyone I've only been a member here for a few months but I'd love to have an opportunity to buy a 2017 AAPK knife. Can someone let me know the process please ? Trevor

What's happened in the past is Bryan puts them in his AAPK store and starts a thread which includes a link to the knives. First come, first served and yes, the last couple of years they have gone pretty fast because the last couple of years there have only been appx. 50 made. If you really want one, the best bet is to spend a lot of time on AAPK and keep your eyes open.

A little birdie told me GEC's shut down this week (no reason given) so the way production has been going, the forum knife could very well be delayed into the first half of November. Only time will tell.

Looks like some photos are up on site, and they're close to being ready. I also noticed some centered shields and some off centered shields. I wonder if both versions will be available to all.

Good eye there, Ryan. I didn't notice that until you pointed it out. I wonder if there's another surprise lurking in there somewhere.

Yeah, me neither. That's kind of weird.

Your best course of action to get a club knife is to check the forum daily several times each day. When you see the announcement buy them immediately, they seldom last more than two days.
