    Curious what you hear. I read it that BB has reserved 6 thru 10 but maybe these are in addition to. I hope.

    I'll cross my fingers for you. 8 & 9 are quite interesting.

    Sorry to hear that Tommyd345. I think many of the international folks save up for a few blades at a time so shipping spread across them isn't so outrageous. :( Hope the M43 that is meant for you finds it's way there soon though :)

    A lot of us local folks save up for a few to save on shipping too. It's a plumb nuisance to be poor, let me tell ya.

    Don't recollect if I posted it here before or not but we have a plaque hanging by the kitchen table that reads.

    Money can't buy Happiness
    But it can buy Cows
    And cows make Milk
    And Milk makes Ice Cream
    And Ice Cream makes you Happy.

    Don't help much but I guess it takes the edge off some..........

    R1, R2 and R11 and I will have the complete R and L series of knives. Show your interest with posts and emails to Auntie, perhaps she'll bring them back more regularly. I kinda got the "big" knife and sword thing calmed down for awhile. These little guys don't take up so much room, have the a great price point and many are usable for DC. That seems to be my trend for awhile. It's getting ridiculous on my end. Spent two hours looking through the stacks for a 10" BAS I thought I bought but wasn't sure. I was only about half way through.

    A reliable source tells me the Kami's will be making many of the smaller knives early this year due to the interest and also the price point so every one can continue to enjoy the joy of a new HI knife frequently.

    Especially us poor but addicted fans.

    I will bet the liberty series would sell out again and again.

    I agree. They are actually even nicer in hand than the pictures which is of course not unusual.

    Hopefully we'll see more of those come through.
