    oh, all right... i suppose... :D

    i seem to recall some saying about not looking a gift horse in the mouth? sign me up!

    i find the synchronicity of this whole affair strange, though... i just came back on here last week after about a two or three year abscence, ordered my first two HI khuks, and discovered that my most wanted (the YCS) was no longer available... now this special deal crops up... it must be FATE!!!

    Hey Dan I asked this before but I think you missed it

    We should ask them for only Kami symbols - no initials
    and maybe something to identify this run

    :cool:

    Dan:

    Price sounds great. Very fair considering. But how are we gonna allocate the woods? Just first come first served? However, if a bunch of folks prepay...?
    Maybe some type of drawing?


    Another question: why not just exotic woods and standard wood as in the originals as opposed to horn? Is it because horn has never been done?

    Anyway, I know you and Uncle Bill will work out a way to make it happen fairly.

    Thanks for driving this, and thanks to Uncle Bill for agreeing to do it!

    Regards,

    Norm

    I don't think anyone even expressed an interest in horn, maybe they can all be exotic wood....


    or do you mean allocating different wood types...?

    Horn has been done on YCS before, I wouldn't mind one if I can't get some special wood. It looks really sharp, as do all the horn-handled khuks with white metal or steel fittings. I'm almost going to swing for two, and make the second one horn unless I can get two fancy woods...

    Dan, please try to make sure anything with horn comes with white or steel fittings, and preferably everything with white metal!! Make mine steel!

    $225 is a great deal and thanks to Dan and Uncle for getting the ball rolling and putting up with all our crap :D

    Scot, working double shifts (day and night) at the forum due to excitement

    P.S. don't forget to suggest making some villager-YCS... LOL

    There has only been one request for horn, and no-one has voiced preference other than chiruwa, so.....


    To simplify things, we're going to make them all exotic wood and chiruwa. If that's not what you had in mind....speak up quick...!!!
