    Sweet, I have another one fooled, that was easy......
    Absolutely, Martin, it would be my pleasure. Just send me the link to the pre-order thread, and I'll get right on it for you.

    A pre-order for the UF would be amazing!

    I'm actually getting slower rather than faster at the sales....although I do suspect Nathan is getting his 3pm go time from a Victorian pocket watch or possibly even a sun dial:)

    Hey wait a second, I thought you had one in the back of the safe that you had no use for, that’s the one I was referring to.:rolleyes:

    Wow! That is an incredible offer! In all honesty, I don't know what scale color I want, they all seem to have their own virtues. If someone is willing to sell to me at or near cost when I have the means, I am not going to complain about scales :) that said, OD G10 or Polished Black Micarta would be my top two options, and I don't really have a favorite between the two.

    Oh, those. I went down and tried every combination I could think of and can't get in the vault, i.e. 1-2-3-4, 4-3-2-1, you know, all the ones I use for everything else, and couldn't get in. Sorry Martin, guess they are just gonna have to stay in there.

    That meat eater grind, I don't even know if that is a real grind or just a joke. If you still want a meat beater, I am sure someone here can take care of you. Maybe @Casinostocks.;)
    If Nathan comes through with the pre-order, it will be done. I have seen you proxy for many folks in the past on Friday sales. I will have no issue doing it for you on the pre-order. :thumbsup:

    I believe your offer is more likely then trying to pry that meat grinder out of Mat's hands, he has a tendency to hold onto all the good stuff:rolleyes:.

    FYI, that meat eating grind was always earmarked for Grog whenever he should resurrect from the dead! I had scored it for him before any one of of us knew what it was and so far Nathan has not answered my question, so in reality we still don't know what the heck a meat eating grind is, i.e, a term which Nathan just came up with in a moment of inspiration by having his limbic system well lubricated or that term really being a thing-thing.

    Other than Grog, none on ya here will have a freezing chance in hell to pry that one away from me, but Grog will get it for co$t if / when he resurrects!

    I knew there was a heart in there somewhere Mat.;) Any idea what happened to Dan, it’s been awhile since I have seen anything new from him.

    He's a hard headed bastid mule! TBT, the last time when we spoke a couple of weeks back he told me that apart from 2018 having been a terrible year for him personally and his real life work drowning him further away from his various knife related hobbies, he also felt that since he had let a few people down with sheath projects, he'd rather refrain from coming in here and mouthing off but instead fulfill his existing orders first till he decides whether to partake or not. His books are otherwise indefinitely closed!

    I'd be remiss if I don't state that he never charged anyone up front and that he never will. He had also stated his struggles in here before he completely vanished the last time and in fact suggested that potential customers should approach the few other fine leather sheath makers on here instead of waiting on him.

    HECK NO! I devour my food same ways as what my ancestors always did, by using my hands. Right hand for picking up grub, left hand for... Never mind :D

    Kind of a bummer, he did some really nice for me on a couple of sheaths, nothing like the exquisite work he did for you and others.;) I am wishing him a better 2019 and hopefully we will see him back in the future and let’s hope that he figures out what is work is really worth as he is a true artist that doesn’t charge what his work is worth!:eek:

    ni1s: my failure in landing a PK is kinda of an inside joke. TBT, many moons ago I easily could've scored one, a chance which I turned over to Justin to grab. I'm not much of a culinary or kitchen person at all. Heck, my kitchen knives are the cheap Costco variety cr*p!

    If I ever really badly wanted a PK, I know someone who owns 2 x which includes the one I had already passed up on! But then again, he owns 2 x of the grailiest of the CPK grails (not the big grailiest, but rather the tiny one). I rather give up something very substantial for one of those if & when ;)

    Alright, so we have grails, grailiest of the grails, big grailiest and tiny grailiest? Did I miss any and can you list what CPKs go in what category?
