    I know I said they'd be done earlier but that's why I don't make promises on delivery dates. Because karma and irony love me. *sigh*

    Part of the reason why this is taking so long is that I am also learning how to make this knife in a more efficient way. I have had to make a lot of adjustments to my task lists.

    Here's the latest one. 74 steps in the process.

    I will get to a point in the process, and rather than just blow through itÂ… I end up having to figure out a way how to make these work in batch form.

    I have built a lot of gigs I've done a lot of organizing and making new equipment adjustments etc.

    I absolutely love it when I get one of these done. It is very satisfying and definitely the direction I want to take it.

    I do appreciate your patience with me. Thx!

    Oh God! How many times do we have to hear this computer, sickness, learning and adjustments? I've been hearing this going back to when you were partners with Tom Krien.

    Agreed. Maybe that's why they're not partners anymore.

    Hey Daniel I have a question - if we signed up on the pre-order list and got the auto reply, are we on the list? I understand there are lots of people way ahead of me. I signed up a while back and got the auto reply.
