Thanks for that info guys. My credit card is locked and loaded.

FYI since the only place I've seen it come up is GKD, the AAPK knives are in pre-order now. 73 en route to Bryan and another 27 to follow after. ::ds::

Greg, I don't think they are in the store yet. Not physically anyway. The ad says they just shipped from GEC today.

Bryan doesn't have 'em in hand yet, but he should be receiving just under 3/4ths of the order by midweek or so and the store is taking orders now.

Got mine on the way! ::groove:: Hoping all the mailmen are working in doubletime next week. :lol:

Only thing I don't like is that the shipping cost seems to be based on the USPS flat-rate box which I know for a fact can fit at least five tubes of #35s inside, 4 with decent padding around it. I really don't feel like paying that much for shipping but there's no mechanism for combining shipments. ::disgust::

Regardless, thanks to Bryan for undergoing the effort in making this knife available to the forum. Looks like it's gonna be another home run!

The software is supposed to base shipping on weight for these knives. It appears to be a bit skewed too far upward when calculating cost on multiple items. Especially when mixed with shirt(s) or hat(s).

I also entered weight for each as if it were shipping in it's own box, which doesn't help...

I'll be sure to refund overages to anyone who buys more than one item from the AAPK store & get the calculator more accurate in the near future.

You're a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks for undertaking this mammoth effort, it is very much appreciated by everyone here. ::handshake::

Now I just need to make myself not get impatient as the wheels start in motion. Way I figure it, one day soon a box will show up and the rest of the day will greatly improve. :mrgreen:

Railsplitter that knife was more temptation than I could stand. I don't actively collect GEC knives but I've got one just like yours headed my way. (They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ya know) 8)

I was offered to change my Yellow Rose to Banana Bone because I had a Yellow Rose on reserve. I declined and that's all I know but I assume at least a few will be available at dealers.
