    He was enthusiastic about not doing it by hand anymore. :D

    The team down at Millit noticed our WIP Wednesday posts about handle fitment and started asking some questions. It wasn't very long after that before our car was full of bins and Guy was driving down to Meridian. They are also helping out with surface grinding blades that had some pretty deep grinding lines, meaning fewer Factory 2nds and faster surface finishing once they are back in our workshop! He will be heading back down there in a few weeks to finish up the rest of the handles and pick up blades.

    Yep! Guy made a few subtle design updates before cutting started and the forward hole is one of them.

    Once the preorders are fulfilled we will have a few leftover GSO-12s available, but there will be a lot more SK-12s available. As Silver mentioned, you may have an easier time getting one of those.

    @SURVIVE! Ellie If Guy needs to rest his hands from the daily grind (you bet that's a pun) he should snap a few pics of that 12 blank in his hand with various grips (in choil, standard, rear).

    Those are at Precision Plus getting cut out, so they are actually a lot closer to you than they are to us right now. As soon as the blanks are in our workshop I can promise you that there will be an instagram post of a 12 blank in Guy's hand. The trouble will be getting it back out of his hand, we are all really excited about this model!

    Looking forward to pics. I can imagine there's some excitement in the shop. Enjoy the progress!

    That's the first thing I thought when I saw that finish as well, good eye!
    I really like tumbled finishes in general, darker toned with that almost mirror shine like on some of the early 1st gens would be oh so nice!

    I spy with my little eye...
    A whole bunch of 4.1 and a tantalizing glimpse of a 2.7 and a 7/7. :D
