    Does anyone know if this will be the last run of these? I have my order in for one of these but would like to postpone till the next run if there is a next run. Or I guess if there is a chance they will be made in the near future that would be ok as well.

    It sure is hard to justify all of the expensive steel I have. I can usually make an excuse or purpose for most of my knives but it is kinda hard to justify zombie protection or that tree was giving me a dirty look. I am sure I am not the only one.

    Anyways thanks for listening.

    Hi Everybody,

    I have been eying this thread pretty seriously the last few weeks and I am really close to making the purchase, but in all of my 'Ooooh I want that' craziness I never thought about shipping. Can anyone give me a ballpark figure of roughly what their shipping cost was?
    I live in Vancouver BC, but if it would make a big difference could have it sent to my brother in Seattle. I have $500 maximum to spend and that colored G10 Waki is calling to me...

    Thanks a lot for your time,
    Alex

    Shipping to Canada is about $35, US shipping is approx $18.

    Looks like you could get it for under $500 easy ;)

    Thank you very much Eric!
    The speedy response is very much appreciated.
    One other question; if I get my name in say today or tomorrow, is there a chance that my Waki would be ready to go under the Christmas tree?
    (I have a great GF ;))

    Moses,I am also from Vancouver and I also recently bought a Waki.Before I placed my order for my first SRKW blade,I did a bit of research and there was a question posted by someone else about shipping to Canada and shipping was stated to be around 30ish.But at the Swamp Rat checkout,to my surprise shipping to Canada was actually $42.95 which had me scratching my head;that maybe I remembered wrong.Anyways,I said to myself,I'm not going to let a few bucks keep me from owning a Waki because of all the positive things that I've heard about their products.

    I also should mention that on the customs declaration, "Camping Tool" will be written, resulting in an inspector opening the package, but there should not be a problem then sent along it's way.

    I hope Eric can shed some light on this.

    Just trying to get a handle on when these might charge off. Also if there is anyway of knowing if this will be the last run.

    I am new to the family so dont have a clear idea how these presales work. I know with the ss5 I just got they waited till they had a certain number. Is this the same thing that is going on here. If so is there anyway to know how close we are to the number needed. It is very hard to keep the money sitting idle while looking through the for sale forums.

    Thanks
    Zach

    Anyone able to identify the color scheme and handle on the 4th from the left:

    Also, what's the difference on these handle choices (Micarta and G-10)? Thanks!

    4th waki from the left is black blade & black/tan g-10 handles.

    micarta and g-10 are both common for knife handles, i personally prefer the feel of micarta over g-10, but both are super tough. google is your friend.

    I probably had asked this question before and was kindly answered, but I just can't recall anything about the answer.
    So please bear with me if you have better memory.
    How think is the blade?

    Will Waki blade vibrate when you swing it repeatedly?

    I presume the pre-order will go on for at least another month since there is another add in Blade this month. I hope it does goes on at this point so I can build the funds back up again. I really have no idea how most of you pay for everyone of these knives that come out. Unless the money from the for sale forums jack ups support more.

    Hey Razorburn,

    I was wondering what duty was like on the your Waki? If you don't want to post here feel free to email me ([email protected]). Thank you very much,

    Alex
