Never waited! As soon as I hear of a new knife, my order is in.
The longest I have ever waited after placing an order was for the C.S. Gunsite Folder. I placed it as soon as COLD STEEL announced it. I believe it was about 2 months later that it was released and finally got it.
Ever since I had my first look at the CR large Sebenza I've wanted one. That was over two years ago.
I was finally able to get my hands on one last October, just one week after I returned home from the ROK.
Let me say this it was worth the wait, as I got the new model with the BG-42.
I couldn't be happier.
The only problem is now I have to get mor CR knives. First the small Sebenza, then a fixed blade, then....

I think I waited about four months from my initial order for my Krait. I waited about six months for a Black Cloud Fighting Bowie, but that was because I changed my mind about steels. I think I still have an order in for a custom Ernest Emerson, placed in July '96. I have heard that Bill Bagwell's wait for a Hell's Belle Bowie is about two years, and that Al Polkowski is backordered about eighteen months. I also think I read that Bob Loveless is delivering knives for the same price quoted eight years ago.
I sent some more pics to Spark.
Ask him to send you the one with the light purple cloth background. Dellana's knife was made for my X. She decided to remain a semi- functional heavy drinker. I decided to keep the knife.
Back in the 80's I waited 2-3 years for my Randall Model 1. I think their wait is down to 1 year now. I did get quick service from Randall when I had the knife re-handled to a black micarta single finger grip shape handle.
5 years! I would have forgotten what I ordered by then.
Well, I guess I' m a little bit more fortunate than some. Just short of 7 weeks from Canada. I understand their delivery system sucks so you really have to be patient. I can' t believe I' m about to do it again!
