The 80CRV2 run I mentioned before is still up in the air. Jarod and I are both waiting on another maker who had initially ordered the run, which I was going to piggyback some designs on. This is one of the reasons I never gave a time frame or asked for deposits on these knives. Jarod knows that the 80CRV2 is the lowest priority, with MagnaCut being the highest. MagnaCut is the next run Jarod is processing for us, followed by this AEB-L.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

As a side note, interim runs with shorter lead times in 15N20 or 8670 heat treated by Andy Pomorski are still a possibility given enough demand, though nothing is currently set up yet. But I have been very interested in doing some large blades in .250" 15N20, and thinking about switching to that instead of 8670 overall, given its comparable toughness and, to my understanding (I've asked the maker community about it, so we will see), better wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Food for thought.
