    I would love to see a side by side comparison of the ESEE 6 with TKC scales and the HDFK. They're similar is size and purpose it seems like.

    Just lurked into the pre-order thread and noticed that 14 more folks on that list, up to and including ndmiller, whose status is now showing as shipped on 11/21 :thumbsup:

    I reckon that list will be all well and wrapped up by Christmas 2017 :thumbsup:

    I was going to say no, sooner than that, just a few weeks. But turns out Christmas is just a few weeks away isn't it...

    I allowed some cushion in there since you seem to be getting a batch of 20 or so ready at a time plus a sale coming up for Friday 12/1, but yeah Christmas is less than 5 weeks away ;)

    Weird! I didn't see your order on that pre-order list!

    Anyway an edit is in order for my earlier post:

    seems like 14 different orders were ready as of today so far as the actual HDFKs were concerned, but like 9 of those folks who ordered theirs with Tek-Lok will have to wait till next week till more sheaths arrive with the TL arrangement. So I think 5 orders with the dangler sheaths were shipped out today 11/21.

    Further, I counted 13 more buyers left on the preorder list, starting with Don's order and after disallowing the withdrawn orders. Easy peasy, down easy street for Nathan / Jo / Mark :D

    You are correct Mat, no preorder for me. I decided to try to score early with a Friday sale but I am way to slow!!!
    I got super lucky and was contacted by BCs best CPK distributor who hooked me up!!
    WOOOOWEEEEE!!!

    The HDFK did a great job of carving the TURDUCKEN!

    Much like @Casinostocks I check the preorder thread for shipping updates frequently. I noticed that yours is pending shipment so you should have some pics of your own soon!!! Can’t wait to see them @duramax!!!

    Let’s see more pics of your HDFKs folks!!

    My HDFK left Detroit airport at 10:00pm last night. If customs in Toronto doesn't hold it for too long I should have knife in hand by Monday. :)

    I'm practically next in line on the list; I think there's one person ahead of me :D

    I hope I get it before Xmas; I wish today's sale was re-routed to fulfill the preorder instead

    The way I interpreted Nathan's posted message from yesterday regarding the lower than anticipated number of units available for sale today, makes me believe that they have given more priority for the preorders and that these remaining units and the rest of the preorder units will be all more or less tied up for fulfillment about the same time in the next couple of weeks, depending on the availability of the handle options and the sheath options at hand :thumbsup:

    Hi Casino; yes I did too! Don't mind me--I'm terrible at waiting for anything :D

    But I know CPK has been burning the midnight oil on this and the other projects they have brewing and I recognize and appreciate the effort. You know how it is though: I'm "on deck" and the anticipation is building!

    That said, I'm ready for the next pre order! I vote Medium Chopper although Behemoth would be quite all right!
