    You have excellent taste, Nathan! I'm a big fan of aVe and have a few of his awesome products....not sure if I'm allowed to post external links here, but I'm willing to risk the potential infraction to support that skookum choocher! :D

    AvE is too funny. I don't know how he comes up with his material, but it's great.

    Double checked your profile to make sure, but pretty much knew it wasn’t an east coast, midwest, or cali person calling something “skookum” ;) :thumbsup:

    So are there going to be extra? For the people who regrettably didnt buy one? Is there some sort of list that I can get on to get one?

    Looks like there may be a few extras. If so, Nathan will announce when there will be a Sale thread, and you'll have to compete with anyone else looking for one, who missed the pre-sale.

    Excellent job on the reconnaissance! I've been in the PNW (Washington) for the last 25 years and lived in Alaska for 11 years as a kid. My regional diction has always been a blend of backwoods slang with a bit Russian, Canadian, and Athabascan in there, too; I'm a cold, wet mutt with a propensity for alcohol and bad choices!

    Hahaha, my brother from another mother! I actually lived in McCleary :eek: for 4 years before we moved to Olympia (in 2000) - so I feel your pain. I got into tons of trouble in that little town; it is NOT the ideal place to raise a 12-16 year old kid. :D

    Are you down in Vancouver, WA or (up) in B.C.? There is no wrong answer.

    Also, just to digress, I haven't been on BladeForums that much in the last few months, but what's up having to "confirm" before you can 'Like' a post now? Just to make sure you really like it?

    How funny, my sister lived in McCleary for a buncha years after she got married, 2003’ish until a couple years ago when she moved back to Montesano.

    I’m down in VanWa, lived in Portland from ‘84 until about ‘11. Loved Portland but glad I’m gone, it was a great town for a while but no longer ...

    We're getting very close to the final steps in K18 production. We are collecting some final heat treat and ergonomic validation and this will uncork.
