    I don't send the newsletters from an inbox; they are sent by a service. Although I would expect to see them but no joy - don't know where they actually went. You might try the contact on the website or the email that sent you the order confirmation

    To answer your question - If I had the pivot I would have heated up the joint and replaced them myself instead of discounting. But, I have asked the factory for a few, so may have some one of these days. Send me an email directly and I can hold on to it until I know if I will get any.

    My suspicions are confirmed...
    The 2 knives for yours truly and one for some Quensland bloke called freezergeezer...have arrived safely courtesy of the most generous fellow of the porch Eisman...Cheers Kevin ....but wait ...I know you want more mine came with a choice belt pouch and small UH Schrade stockman...Thank you Kevin..
    Matt I will forwstd your knife and pouch next week...after the postmen get back.
    And oh the Scales...for 10 long years I voted ,polled,pestered and harangued for Rams Horn scales and finally my relentless campaigning has born fruit...not just some boring old paddock plodder...NO! As soon as I handled the 2020 I became a Mighty Mouflon ..scampering from peak to peak of the snow capped Italian magnificent horns butting away snow leopards and hunters as if they were mere huge bellowing roar causing avalanches....on other mtn ranges....In short hugely regal and superb.
    What a bonza xmas present.

    Feb 2, 2014 happend today. My forum knife took a ride through the washer and dryer! Luckily its stainless and ti! No damage at all. I heard the thunk...thunk...thunk..... in the dryer and just had a feeling that i should check. Luckily it only spent a minute or two in the dryer. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

    Enjoy the Christmas mate, at least you have decent weather for house-arrest in the garden :D

    Regards, Will

    Well, Ms. Clause finally released this to me on the 25th. Like many have already commented - very well made knife. I like the mark side especially well on this one. Would have blown my socks off if the pile side matched. Very happy to have this one in the collection - mainly for what it represents. Glad that 2020 didn’t knock the forum knife off the rails!

    - agreed and well said, particularly that the vast majority of us are happy and received prior to Christmas - well done Viper and Mike.

    I bought 10 and distributed to other guys here in UK - there were a few moans about the differences in scales from one to the other as well........considering the nature of Rams Horn and the production levels that had to be sustained, they’ve done a great job. Dealing with a natural product that can be as darned pernickety as Rams Horn - it’s not easy for sure.

    For myself, having a very precisely man-made metal thing with clothes on of an organic nature is perfect - great Yin/Yan :thumbsup:

    Yes, the precision and quality of these knives show much to be impressed by. Mine's been cutting all manner of stuff with no hesitancy at all. Plus you have these quirky beautiful natural scales on board and it's no deadweight in the pocket :cool:

    Thanks so much to Santa (and Mike)! One of few bright spots in this year and very much appreciated.

    This knife is my surprise hit of the year with beautiful covers and wonderful fit and finish.

    Going to check out more CK Vipers for sure!
