    Nice! Did you keep the same supplier for sheaths and scales?

    @Brian.Evans With everything going fluid now I'd like to ask if I can buy another knife being there were some canceled orders in the last few months I always try to have a back up of knifes I like

    The grind is flat so it will have a bit more meat behind the edge than a hollow grind (duh, right?). They will still be lean, just not as lean as a hollow grind.

    Thank you for your continued patience and confidence. About two weeks from completion I will be verifying everyone's addresses and emails.
    These are being completed when the knives are at heat treat.
    I'm doing some figuring on several sheath makers, but if I do, it might be difficult to verify quality levels across three or four craftsmen at the same time. Honestly, a simple taco sheath with three or four rivets isn't hard and can be made several at a time.

    No. Scales are being made by the same shop that is milling the knives. Ronnie is sidelined with some issues that preclude him from making sheaths, but I have lots of contacts in the sheath world that I'm working with on sheaths.

    I will have extra knives available to purchase, but I want to make sure exactly how many before I commit to numbers. Don't worry, I will be emailing once I have final numbers. The last thing I want to do is over sell this run!!

    I'm going to try for early November. That is my goal, but ultimately it will depend a lot on how long heat treating and sheaths take.
    Got your email, see above.

    Really cool :D really looking forward to see the first ones with scales.
    Any information on what makers mark they'll carry?

    I'm so excited to finally see the silver lining to this storm. Ever since I've seen the Companion in CutleryLover's video I wanted to have one for myself. Finally the time is drawing near.

    Currently he is fulfilling the orders placed on indiegogo before he sells anymore.

    Is it too late to receive refund on indiegogo pre-order? I contacted Brian via e-mail two times already but no response. Companion would've made a perfect EDC fixed blade but I've already acquired two small fixed blades that I love while waiting. Currently thinning out my collection so don't want to add another blade...
