Not wanting to offend anyone harboring very strict and eternal definitions of a Traditional Folder; I would like to gauge the interest in Modern Traditional from Maniago Italy. There are several exceptional makers there that I have worked with in the past and have ongoing projects. Although much like GEC from last year; we are now in July and anything I can offer will be a variant of an already scheduled run. But I don't foresee a custom etch being a problem. Also, I don't foresee there being any problems on the factory side - but that is always a possibility. So, my offer is to do my best. Also, the price will be over $100; but I do expect that I could make it happen for less that $120. Finally, they will not produce a run of less than 300pcs - so that is a magic number in this equation. So, let's just start at the very basic of details. The frame / blade combination that seem possible at this stage. The Barlow and Bolus are the only two that we could have a secondary vote for blade; so I left them one choice. If there is an obvious winner I can talk to the corresponding factory and gather details for future polls (if needed). Otherwise, things will need to become a bit more official to move forward than just me taking notes. Disclaimer: We are not deciding that this is the way we go here. Just gathering information so that I can offer an option. So please don't get aggravated if this is not the direction you wish to go. Each person can cast 2 votes, but your first two choices stick. Poll closes in 3 days.
