Maybe something in the lines of Presales of the 4.1s ordered between JAN16 to MAR16 and F2nds from ????? to ????? are currently in the shop for finishing with shipping dates starting on ???. Too much mystery/drama with the pics in my opinion, its just eye candy I suppose until it hits the mail box.
^^ No, the Starter Program was for second Gen knives for 4.1, 5.1, 3.5, 6, 7/7, 10, i.e. the knives that had a First Gen. The others: 2.7, 4.5, 4.7, 8, 12 are first Generation starting with the Starter Program, as they are new models.
EtA: I wrote this in a thread a long time ago:
First, there was the Starter Campaign. Everyone who participated had free upgrades plus a discount based on the amount of the order. When the Starter finished, many people still wanted to place orders, so Survive! kept the orders opened - this became the Preorder - still free upgrades but no other discount. Later on, there were a few models (i'm aware of the 4.7 in CPM154) that were offered at Presale - no free upgrades. The presale happened just before the model went into production (if I remember correctly). I'm currently patiently waiting on 3 orders: one Starter, one Preorder and one Presale . I hope this info helps..
Nice catch. Nice observation with the divot. Hope you're pleased with the continued use of bath towelshttps://www.instagram.com/p/BdgG9mMAjpW/?hl=en&taken-by=surviveknives
Note the bow drill holes in the 4.1 scales, which were a starter option.
