regardless of whats been going on behind the scenes this thing is late, and if its not just the box holding the delivery up, then i think we all have a lot more to be worried about, because that must mean its a quality control issue on the knife itself. If Lyon has taken on way more business than they can handle, that worries me even more, because things are probably getting overlooked. If they cant regulate how many orders they are promising to multiple customers and their delivery dates, how can you confidently say they have the ability to deliver a quality product. Staying in business is about keeping your customer base happy, i think this whole thing has soured a lot of people on Lyon regardless of their knife making history and one negative customer negates 100 positive ones.. at least we know the "first class" skull tool can be used to open a beer bottle. RYP NOTE: Nuther troll. Anyone notice the timing on all this stuff?
