    Nice job!!
    I'm also impressed that Keffeler is spelled correctly.
    When does yours go back for HT and finishing?

    To whom it may concern: outside of the pre-order there will be a few extra available this summer, however the price will be adjusted to $1,500 for future orders. Those of you who got one in the pre-order for $1,175 got a pretty good deal.

    I am among those concerned:

    Will those be part of regular Friday sales? Or will we have a chance to place an order at $1500?? I think there's quite a few of us who are kicking themselves for missing these. Thanks, and these K18s look unbelievable!

    I am simultaneously among those whom it may concern and also among those who got a pretty good deal. Sure is hard being in two places at once, let me tell you.

    I have news for you Nathan, IMO these (K-18's) are a Steal at $1500:thumbsup:Hope to get some good pictures next week (raining with high winds (presently) and forecast the next couple of Days here in Tennessee)

    These (K-18's ) are magnificient, and much, much nicer than advertised-You did "one Hell of a Job" on these Nathan

    These are in essence a DES (Double edged Sword) The Spine is sharpened almost the entire length of the spine:thumbsup::D

    Thanks to Nathan, Dr. Dan, NinJo, Mark and Bo for producing an Outstanding Sword, and IMO the nicest CPK I have ordered or owned:thumbsup:

    They are that GOOD-Some not so good pictures

    Top to Bottom

    K-18 with regular TeroTuf
    K-18 with bright green TeroTuf
    K-18 with OD TeroTuf

    Edit: second picture removed because of my bad Photography

    No other options unless your middle names are Charming, Erudite, Handsome on your actual birth certificate just like they were with Tommy's. I've verified that, his is all of them :)

    Someday, maybe in 1000 years, they will make a movie (or whatever they make in the future). The story will go like this:

    Two legendary swords are discovered, and a third one will be rumored. It has to be found because whoever posseses the three swords will have all the power in the world to conquer any army. There is some dark, sinister warrior overlord who is seeking out the third sword so he can rule the world. It's a real good versus evil kind of thing and the fate of the next 1000 years is at stake. The bad guy will stop at nothing to possess the swords. The good guy will risk everything to save them.

    Maybe it's a Lara Croft kind of thing. Yeah, maybe they'll make the hero hot.

    Anyway, that green handled sword will be the one they are seeking out. It's the truely legendary one, only rumored to exist.


    Edit: Lara will have a pair of Boot Daggers as part of her load out.
