    Don’t miss out on this RARE opportunity folks. I love that our BF family gets a chance at something like this! And I love that Andy excluded the Palmer LOL

    I'm really excited to see what folks choices would be. I'll confess, after seeing the initial post, I didn't get anything done but scrolling through the model info page.

    I hate to be that guy who asks for too much, but what about bolsters?

    Well, I’m glad you started it o_O

    Not a question about bolsters, but could we request extra spalting?

    Nothing crazy, but something like the bottom Loner instead of the green Loner...

    Depends...Andy & I collaborated this morning to go over which Models to exclude for various reasons..I tried to provide a list of those examples above. With over 100 Models we may have missed some...thus we reserve the right to exclude others as needed
    Bolsters are Ok...provide the combo is on the list above
    ie: im not going to go around trying to source some crazy carbon fiber or widjit micarta
    If I could 100%control it I would say "Yes" . I have a good idea , but sometimes it's a mystery despite doing the exact same thing every time

    Aww yeah. I saw a fiddleback with green micarta bolster on osage and I've wanted that combo ever since.


    General question: is there anyone else who wants in but would only buy one? I'd be down to go in together with someone else and then one of us ships to the other.

    Let's do it. Gives us better odds of making it in the first five as well.

    I would also be interested in partnering with someone on a second knife, if that option is allowable.

    I would love a HB with Osage/over Walnut liners ;)

    Circa 2009 would be fine.

    change of plans.....theres going to be 10 slots with 1 knife selection. If you would like two your 2nd selection will automatically get one of the first slots on the the next one. It will follow this one directly.

    Wow, This is great. I would love to have a Bushfinger in black ash burl, and TT of course. A HB the same way would be nice to. Hope this works out, it would be nice to see happen every now and then.

    I asked this in a PM Phillip but feel free to answer here for anyone with the same thoughts as me to see.

    Are different pinouts available i.e. trinity, predator with or without mosaics?

    I believe on the initial Trail run is would be wise to limit some of the options. Especially, from a Company that is Self-Proclaimed terrible at Custom orders and normally does not accept them..Just take a look at the first 3 or 4 questions on the FAQ section of our website. That's been our stance for approx. 7yrs

    Im not ruling it out indefinitely though.
