    Well drat. Bad week to be off the grid. Looking forward to seeing some of these in the wild.

    I completely missed this, much to my frustration. I certainly hope the venture will be successful enough that other opportunities will arise.

    (Or maybe someone will get buyer's remorse and give their spot to me. One can hope.)

    I'm all for historical accuracy, but is there any chance we might see a lanyard hole on these? Hidden pommel would be ideal, but I'd be very happy with even a front bolster core!

    FWIW, I prefer no lanyard hole, but if you are going to do one, I much prefer it be at the pommel. Anything else would be very unappealing to me. JMHO.

    @Nathan the Machinist, just wondering if you have any updates on the progress. I can’t wait to see what you do with these. I know it’s going to be amazing! :)

    I said I intended to start shipping these by the end of summer. At this point it appears we might be significantly ahead of schedule.

    I have cut about 200 blanks already (AEBL and 3V). They're decked, engraved, blue printed, chamfered and ready to bevel. That part was easy because the work leading up to it was complete 100 years ago, I just needed to incorporate the established geometry into our process. I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do on the bevels yet. I have some cool ideas on the bevels to duplicate the reduced binding in wood splitting of the original but there's some development work to do yet.
