    Well, it is a little silly to tighten ALL of them to the point where they wont open, when the probable majority of buyers don't live in areas with shitty knife laws regarding such things.

    Where I am from, I wouldnt care if it was an automatic.

    Either way, I'll just adjust the pivot the second that I get it.

    you could ship it to me in VT, and I would be happy to hand deliver it to NYC for you.

    You're dealing with the general public/consumer now. You need to get very used to it!

    Do you own a Junglas or an ESEE-4 that you'll be offloading soon on the cheap? Just wanted to check.

    Getting things back on track, I've been carrying a HEST folder prototype for more than a month now and Lion Steel's quality is top-notch. Everyone is going to be very happy with this knife. So it is has had a few delays. No big deal. It will ship and everyone will forget about the delays and be tickled shitless.

    That's what I'm hoping for, Jeff! Delays or not, I'm still excited about the knife!

    All five of my suppliers are against shipping to NY, but I still take care of my customers there with no issues.

    Hi guys. Completely new to Hest and R.A.T., had a question. This folder we are all waiting on.. it is a collaborative work? I am confused about the origins. I originally thought it was a R.A.T., but now am confused.

    The H.E.S.T./F folder is a DPx knife made by Lion Steel in Italy. R.A.T/ESEE isn't involved.

    ESEE did collaborate with DPx for the original fixed blade H.E.S.T. made by Rowen and those knives are warrantied by ESEE. ESEE/Rowen will not be involved with the next generation of DPx fixed blade knives, though.

    This is my first post on this part of the forum.

    I want to say that I am indeed excited about the Hest/F.

    Also, I don't really see the big deal with the delay (in all honesty I didn't even know that Esee and Dpx aren't anymore in this together until now). I have other knives on preorder...some are prepaid and some aren't, a few of them already have been apparently delayed (example: Spyderco Paramilitary 2 in CTS-20CP steel, supposed to come out end of January '11, now apparently March-April, maybe even later...), some are 6 months away (Spyderco Navaja). No big deal.
    Patience is a virtue and as long as the Hest/F will be as good as it's supposed to be, it's all good.

    Just my $0.02...
