And now available at KSF.

Edit: i am about 10 posts late with this announcement.
So many dealers put the MB Whalers up for sale at the exact same time, there must have been collusion, maybe to help thwart flippers.

It will be interesting to see how long they last today. I also wonder what the production numbers were.

Collector Knives must have gotten some extra allocations as their reservations have been closed for months.

I was thinking that the ones that I am seeing for sale at CK are much cheaper than the others, but I now see that they have cosmetic issues.

Well the horn sounding by all of the AAPK watch dogs worked to perfection today and I would like to thank and commend all who participated. If you wanted one and didn't get one today, shame on you. ::handshake:: :D

Checking the dealers at 6:15 PM it appears that supplies have been exhausted.
