I just got my first Mini Micro Bowie about 2 months ago, so don't lose hope. I ordered it sight-unseen from Auntie, and would probably even get a second one, especially if it had the shorter handle or full-length scales. Really can't say enough good about this little knife, it's a dream. Mine came home over the weekend, been super busy but need to put up some pics!

I am with Bawanna on the shorter handle, and not alone simply due to concealment, but plain handiness....it is almost never the blade length which ruins a knife for daily carry, but the handle, whether worn openly or concealed...

Long handles may he great in hand, but poke and prod and whang into stuff and get hung, and shove the knife this way and that when they do any of the above.....

they all have their place but a rerun of the original would be very nice.....

at the least, a deposit large enough so that no risk of lost time or money to a shop busy playing catch-up......

an announcement, and posted sign-up list of those interested to make sure even enough to make it worth her while to collect a deposit,.... so that she does not end up needing to return same when half never send funds.....make sure interest truly there before troubling her further....

Then an announced open and close date for her to receive payment....

I doubt payment in advance would be necessary. Your word is usually good to her. That might just complicate her daily routine business plan. Like Mr.B said they have to catch up in the shop on web orders before they do special runs. Ive not a clue where they stand there? Im still holding out on the smatchet. Many have given their word there as well.
I would like to see the original shorty micros made. Heck id even like to see a micro smatchet :thumbup: After the micro-rose of course;)

Get well Pala! smoke up!

I sent Auntie my idea on a mini Rose to share with Pala when he gets here and has time to ponder it some.

Told her a completely in the future idea for consideration, nothing to even think hard about until everything else is caught up.

After hearing from some of the senior members I've decided to scratch the idea of asking Yangdu to do a Micro Bowie batch.
It looks like there are a couple things that have already been requested and are patiently being waited on... sorry,, didn't mean to step on any toes.

You didnt step on no toes Fenris. We throw things at HI all the time. Sometimes things stick and sometimes Aunti just surprises the heck out of us with what she feels like running and or thinks will sell at the time. She does listen to us and read these threads so you never know what might pop up at any time. Thats what makes sharking fun!

Bawanna: I might have to bribe my brother to take some pictures of it this time; he takes better pictures than both of us combined! The handle came out phenomenally. Just gets better every time I hold it too. Thanks again.

Fenris: I don't know if you saw the Time Traveling Bowie thread, but there's a bunch of pictures already. I just have to add more! Never enough pictures :) Also about contacting Auntie, keep in mind that she reads much if not all of this, and I'm sure she is aware of the interest.

I'm on-call this week so time is short and check-ins are few. Last weekend I took the Dui Chirra and KLVUK down to CT, and got a couple pictures. I'm gonna try to take out the Foxy Folly soon, and do a thread on all those blades. All in due time :)

For the record, put me on the list for a Mini Rose :D

Negatory there good buddy. Your the hallmark of information gathering speed that we all strive to achieve.
In my case usually 99.7% unsuccessfully.

Your work here will never be done as long as I'm here to ask stupid questions about stuff everybody else knows about.
