    It is now May 2 and I am about to check my mailbox... Could they have sent it out before I've even paid for it?

    I'm sure a lot of you have been to Italy. Estimates on timing over there have a completely different meaning. There's a word for it but I don't remember what it is.

    I have two on order so ACCELERARE, ACCELERARE!!!!!

    I'm no expert in the language, but have studied it some. Domani means tomorrow, that might be one word. My daughter that lives in Santa Fe, NM says that one of the favorites the locals use to indicate they are in no hurry, is manana, which is tomorrow in Spanish.

    That said, I like what I'm seeing from the Italian knife makers. I've got a few that are very nice.

    I just put in for the Cocobolo version, hope I didn't cut it too close. This piece looks gorgeous, and it's a nice mix of modern in the pattern. I really enjoy m390, I've used a few knives with it, and it's been good to me.

    Lived in Bolivia for a few years. When inquiry was made concerning an order being ready, the arrival of a package, the departure of some trains, the beginning of a project....... There was one patent answer - "EN LA MANANA"
    .....being interpreted.... "It will be ready when it is ready".... "It will arrive when it arrives"....
    Never met a single person with ulcers...:D:D;)
    postscript - I'm in for cocobolo and ram's horn!!

    I'm finding myself surprisingly patient about these. I think the upcoming GEC 54 and 66 runs have a lot to do with this.
    I also want to thank Mike again for going out on a limb and finding something a little different to offer.

    If you do a google image search for "Lionsteel abalone", you will see plenty of examples.
    I didn't dig far enough to come up with a means of manufacture.

    Peregrin-I think Jack Kerouac covered manana in "On the Road". Well done sense of context.
    Thanks, Neal
