A LOT of views, but no responses?
I noticed this is your first post Reloader, sorry it is a negative one.
I can not add much information other than my experience meeting Tim at Blade a couple of years ago and buying one of his "Baby bullets".
He was a friendly guy and seemed sincere in providing nice knives at a good price to customers. He is not a young man and the health related issues may be as he stated.
Hopefully the situation will be resolved to your satisfaction.
