    Wow! What a bunch of whiners a few of you are! If you have ever worked with multiple contractors and real life situations you should have long since learned that release dates, and completion dates are only best guestimates using the info currently in hand. Dates almost always slip and it should be expected if you're a realist and not just an unhappy, whining idealist.

    I have a bit of advice for the whiners.... Do not EVER order a custom knife. It will not be ready by the time the initial estimated delivery date is long past. Also, do not EVER pre-order a knife. Only order production models from stores that have your item in stock. If you follow this advice, the rest of we fellow knife nuts will have a much nicer day as we will no longer have to skim over your constant complaining posts.

    Here is the most up to date information we have...The 250 Limited Edition Folders have been produced and the inspection of each knife has been completed. We decided to add an additional item to the Limited Edition package as well as create a more efficient container for shipping. We estimate shipping from the factory in the next two weeks, barring any unforeseen delays.

    wow didnt think i was whining like a little girl, just dont see any reason to jump all over each other over something none of us has any control over. i understand that nobody ever comes in on time on a project like this. been there done it myself. crap does happen suppliers dont deliver on time the mail man dumps your stuff somewhere else endless reasons that crap happens. i didnt really expect to see the le before feb anyway.

    You weren't.. I was agreeing with you 'cricketdave' . :thumbup: ?????? :)

    I, as you I think... just see no reason to gripe, whine, complain, stir the pot, or cry because it is not here yet.

    Those things do nothing to "help" the situation.

    I'd bet the farm "they" are getting things done as fast as possible. :)

    I'm surprised no one has crashed the Lion Steel forum just south of this one with HEST questions:D

    How are the extras for the LE versions coming along?
    I thought those were holding up the operation on that end.

    Anyway, good to hear that these are shipping soon, I seriously
    can't wait to see these!

    Glad now I decided to let the two I had reserved go. Patience is not my thing, and it's not like this is really worth waiting on considering all the other options out there.

    Glad you are happy... but to me they will defiantly be worth the wait. :thumbup:
    They are the same cool knife we [you too till you "let yours go"] ordered in the first place. Being a few weeks late hasn't changed any of that. ;)
