Any news on the shipping date for the cerakote?
Black with just a few components left stainless turned out to be a really neat looking knife. Does Cerakote present some challenges once you start to assemble and tune or is it just the same as any other coating or finish once you get to assembly and tuning?
Don't hold me to it but I think Will is doing them by type. I think he started with knives he needed for Blade 2014, went on to assorted stone washed and has continued on to the Cerakotes. Again, don't hold me to it. But that makes a good deal of sense if that is what he is doing. Also, there may be a number of processes that are similar by each type. All by way of saying that he may have done the Stone Washed that had wharny's and still has a group of Stone Washed to complete that have drop points for example.
But if you look at the WIP photos it does sort of look like he is completing them by type.
Can any of the 12 people who have a finished knife post pics or a quick review? With more than half finished I'm surprised we haven't seen anything from anyone. Who are the 12 people with finished knives?
I saw that. If #00 is in the 20, that is still only 2 out of the supposed 12 already delivered. I'm surprised we have heard nothing from the others.
After a year of waiting past the expected delivery date I'd expect people either show it off to anyone and everyone and say it was totally worth the wait or else throw a royal fit about the maker taking a year of extra time and that there are still big issues with the knife that needed fixed. Delivery issues seem to be nothing new with either new or seasoned makers. Auctioning off finished knives with dozens of prepaid customers still waiting also seems to be par for the course. With 12 supposedly delivered, the lack of chatter and radio silence is what I find unusual.
