    NZ tracking says that my knife is tied up in San Francisco as well. I'm sure it has something to do with the winter storms in the area.

    At least with the tracking, we can know where they are with them needing to be logged in to each change of hands

    Just for reference, this is all I've been able to access since the day you shipped.
    Am I doing something incorrectly?

    I have to apolagise Wade as I had originally input one wrong digit in that I had put ep430 instead of ep439 and with the correct numbers you will get the required infrmation which shows the package had an attemted delivery Wade.png

    Yup, my mailbox is 1/4 mile from the house with instructions to not leave outside the box if it don't fit. I'll be picking it up in town tomorrow.
    Thank you

    Von Gruff, mine showed up a couple of hours ago. Another fine testament of your sharply honed skills. (No pun intended)

    My knife is in hand!
    Excellent work, very lite and well balanced. Transition from bolster to wood is flawless.
    Greatly appreciated 20191127_145547.jpg

    You keep putting these knifes up and it is getting very tempting for a Christmas present to myself.

    I figure that Christmas is 365 days a year and if it isn't Christmas it is my birthday. Sometimes I need a excuse to just buy something and then again sometimes I don't.

    I just may be getting in touch with you after the first of the year.

    @JimP if you like Jim you could take a look at mine in person to help sway your decision next time I go that way.
    Which I think might be friday afternoon. My last day off before new year's due to medical loa, vacations, and an on the job injury a couple days ago. People figure out any way to get the holidays off if not approved by seniority.

    My shipment showed up right on time, in good shape and yes had to drive the 13 miles to the Post Office to pick them up;)

    I allready had the three on the right, the Buffalo Skinner I won in the drawing a while back and a JT Ranger and Bowie I had ordered after the drawing.

    The small knife on the left is a custom job I wanted as a companion to my favorite truck gun, a tough laminated/stainless Ruger that shoots 1/2 groups. Then the group buy skinner, rain drop Damascus blade that is a real piece of art, another JT Ranger I wanted with premium wood, and the extra rasp Bowie that Garry offered up:)
