    Man, you is SO smart! :thumbsup: :D

    That's actually pretty ingenious to be honest. Nicely done John, nicely done!

    I think it'll work out well, it let's me keep an even inventory of all the blade designs at once, and no having to pay for separate waterjet batches. I drew it up a while ago and thought I was pretty clever. Since then I've noticed a couple of others do it, there's nothing new under the sun:)

    Right? There's always a bright side.

    Looks like the Zulu has it in the poll, I was hoping it would be the first chosen:cool:

    I really like my drop point, but I would really LOVE a Zulu. I'll hopefully be able to put a dibbs in for one!

    I have 8 names left for the last of this original run. If any of the 8 want to hold off for the coming Zulu, that's cool just know that I'll be doing the Drop points first before moving on to Zulus. So for example if you're first on the list below and you want a Zulu, you'll move to number 8.

    I'll be doing these in 2 groups of four each.

    First Group
    1 @lex2006
    2 @Mink
    3 @Pàdruig
    4 Tope (off forum)

    Second Group
    5 @Comprehensivist
    6 @RayseM
    7 @Wharn (First Zulu)
    8 @gunspease (Zulu)

    LET ME KNOW THE FOLLOWING:

    1. Handle Materials:
    Richlite: Redstone, Blue Canyon, Black Diamond

    Linen Micarta: Bone, Red, Green, Black

    Blue Denim Micarta: Limited Supply

    Other Micarta: If you want to send me micarta let me know beforehand. Known sources only, no home brew please.


    2. Sheath:
    Belt
    Slip
    Pocket Clip (Silver or Black Clip, and which pocket you want it to ride in)

    3: If you want to send your addresses I can mark them down on your build cards. My email is my username at gmail (# 3,7,and 8 I have yours unless they've changed very recently)

    When we open Dibs again, we'll offer the Drops and Zulus as an option (and very likely the Wharncliffes as well)

    If any of you need out of your Dibs, your reason is your business, just let me know and I'll take your name off the list (no substitutes please). You'll get no questions from me and absolutely no hard feelings.

    If you guys have ANY questions at all, let me know and we'll make sure we're all on the same page and crystal clear.

    Can I be officially the first to call dibs on a Zulu? I’ll change my reserve to one.

    Sounds good, please change my original reserve (spot #4 on the first list) to spot #8 (AKA Zulu #1). Thanks, and Happy New Year!

    I would like to change mine to a Zulu and I’ll be sending you some handle material if that’s ok? With a left handed silver pocket sheath.

    6 Drop points heat treated and the first grit of handsanding complete. From here I'll continue with a group of 4 and cut handles, pins and tubing.

    Yours are in the bin above as well and I'll be working on them a bit with this batch.
