    Draft Proposal Thread here: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...draft-proposal

    From there, vendors were contacted, and GEC responded with a timely estimate based on specifications provided below:

    Congress Jack-Blade Forums 1095 Carbon Steel
    Size 3.5" - 4"
    Sheepsfoot primary blade behind pen secondary blade
    Long pull on primary blade
    Standard nail mark on secondary blade
    Nail marks to be on shield side of both blades set to not
    interfere with each other
    Blade Forums tang stamp - will have to have new one
    made to fit
    2013 stamped on tang
    Half stops on both blades
    Main blade as long as possible but no longer than 3"
    Extended spring to close secondary blade channel
    Satin finish on blades
    Cut swedge on primary blade
    Drawn swedge on secondary blade
    Bolster and pins to be nickel silver
    Square style bolster on both ends
    Rattail (one medium thick groove per bolster)
    Fine grained paper or linen micarta off white/ivory color
    Pinned shield to be long, centered and running parallel to
    long axis of knife
    No etches
    No Serial Numbers
    They need 50% down before they will begin work. If we can get 125 pre-orders, they will be delivered within 10 weeks from deposit.


    Based on their quote, price will be $129.99 per knife, shipped within the lower 48. International shipping will be more expensive. This is an increase over last year because of the number of knives that went "missing" during shipments and the pain in the ass it was.

    Shipping to Alaska / Hawaii shouldn't be bad. International shipping will be calculated at the time of boxing and you will be sent a payment request for the cost. Typically last year shipments to the Netherlands, Belgium, etc were running around $11-13

    Hi Spark, thanks for handling this again this year.
    How should we proceed for the international shipping? Should we just pay normally and handle the extra cost later?

    Thanks

    As an FYI, when you click that link it shows an additional $7.00 shipping and handling charge. Not sure if that needs any attention or not.

    Twenty pieces spoken for, we're almost 1/5 of the way there.
