    Draft Proposal Thread here: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1050120-2013-BF-Traditional-draft-proposal

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

    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.
