Does anyone know how many LE SJTACs were made and sold from the shop? I've seen up to #125 (rbmcmjr), anyone have higher numbers? Thanks.

I wouldn't put much stock in what numbers you see. The past has proven them non sequential and not a true judge of how many were made.

Thanks Progunner, I guess I'll see what I can get when Skunk gets them in. I actually would even prefer if I could get one that was sterile. :thumbup:

In retrospect, I wish I had talked to the shop when I ordered. I would have preferred this also. I have a sterile HOFSH-LE and it just seems "righter".

For that option, you probably would have had to order it direct from the shop. I doubt there will be any sterile ones at the Co. Store, but I am not an authority on the matter.

the "store", to avoid confusion, is having their SJLE's numbered in reverse.

our numbers are going to start at three hundred and run down to zero. this way we collectors will be able to distinguish between the sjle's sold via busse's site vs. the stores site.

in the futures all our numbering will be this way.

I guess I don't understand. Will there be some other distinction made? I can envision a situation where the two schemes overlap (e.g., you both sell two hundred). Maybe I overestimate the volume sold.

well jerry's numbers started at 1 and ran up to the hundreds. we just asked him and he agreed to start our numbers where he ended and run them back down to 1
100, 99, 98, 97, 96 and so on and so forth till he hits 0.
other than the reversing of the numbers all will be the samo.:cool:

I still don't understand how this works. You say Jerry started at #1 and sold into the hundreds, So this means he probably sold one with say #200 on it. The Company Store is starting at #300 and going down to #1. This means that the Company Store would have one with #200 on it. How will you be able to tell which one came from who? Will the reversed version read like 002# or 200#.

Sorry to dredge this thread up from the depths, but I am a bit confused still...:confused:

So are there multiple copies of knife #100, for example? And is it a secret how many knives are sold of each type or is anyone from Busse willing to divulge some juicy info?

Inquiring minds want to know! ;)

I'm not sure of exactly how many were available, but I've seen a few (including mine) up in the #400's. The real question is how many "sterile" SJTLE's were available to the public. There was an earlier thread on the "SUB-JACK"; a sterile SJTACLE made for a submarine crew.....;)
