    I couldn't resist. Foxy's Folly sounded too good. I'll admit it's a nice design and very good model.

    All Right Yvsa is in! I really would like to see this one get into production. I feel like it will be a serious piece of equipment for soldier and ourdoorsman alike. Fast in combat and rugged in the field. Having based it on the 19th century models it has a fluid grace that should be quite appealing

    of gum. lots and lotsa gum. :)

    Sorry, Foxjaw. I'm tapped fer cash. Great design tho.
    Love the lines on that midrib spine. That khuk will stand the test of time. The whole design is just sublime. The blade is bound to be divine. Another chance for the kamis to shine. The stuff they make sure is fine. I hafta pass, and I know that's a crime.

    Probably he means no harm.
    FEZZIK
    He's really very short on charm.
    INIGO
    (proudly)
    Oh, you've a great gift for rhyme.
    FEZZIK
    Yes, some of the time.
    (he starts to smile)
    VIZZINI
    (whirling on them)
    Enough of that.

    As they sail off, we hear their voices as the boat recedes.
    INIGO
    FEZZIK, are there rocks ahead?
    FEZZIK
    If there are, we'll all be dead.
    VIZZINI
    No more rhymes now, I mean it.
    FEZZIK

    I agree, I'd like one too, but an indication of when my pennies would have to be saved up by would be nice. Weeks? Months? Estimates???

    Three months, four tops!!!!:D :confused: ;)
    I'm guessing somewhat closer to three though. Seems like most new stuff has been within that time mark.:D :cool: :D

    I want one of these Really Bad and if you guys blow it I'm coming here with Maxine.:mad: :grumpy: :mad: :eek:
