    Agree, I wish it would stop. Seems like more and more of it in several threads.

    That’s exactly how I took it. When I read some comments after your initial post, is when I began to question my thought process. I’m with you!!

    Yes, many ship outside the US. Charlie's bone #93 should be no problem; but the ebony would require a $95 inspection fee if done legally.

    Is there any idea about the time frame for the type of jigged bone ?

    Well I will talk about the knives. Someone call Bill and ask him to put a pruner on this frame at the end of the run.:D It will be in line with the frame ergonomics and I get the sense we won't see a 47 run this year.

    I've been trying to envision what the royal blue SFO is going to look like. I might have to mock that up but I picture royal blue having more of a purple-ish tint vs all the standard blue camel bone I've seen thus far. It seems like there is a lot of handle material on the 93 (extra butt width & no bottom bolster) which means extra real estate for dyed camel bone color variations. The aqua camel bone we are seeing now has quite a bit of color variation.
    I greatly underestimated the green boot #14 when that came around but it is also a lot easier to show better bone and color on a small, double bolster pattern like that.
    Can't wait to start seeing more 93 production photos :thumbsup:

    Oh yeah. Pruner instead of yet another Sheepsfoot ... I'd have been on that like a chicken on a junebug.

    I personally prefer some order to a sale versus a mob approach and cart snatching that that occurs with drops..... So, 2 thumbs up to a seller that creates order even if it means I'm excluded...…...

    Then I fear it is a bit late - the "tactic" rules. Every single dealer out there given 8 knives and 400 interested customers "sell an item that's not available to all customers".

    But, every dealer has a way to do this that I guarantee if the facts be know - there would be sour grapes spewed somewhere. I could just put one on the website and sell it, then do what I wanted with the other 7 or such and nobody would be the wiser. Personally, I believe in being upfront - knowing full well that nobody alive could come up with a detailed solution that everyone could agree was fair.

    @knifeswapper I think everyone would agree that your early reserve system is the best in the industry and the fairest way to alert customers of new drops. Keep up the great work and don't sweat the haters! :)

    Just curious, is there only interest in the Ram if the Lamb cannot be obtained? I guess, the question is - would everyone "rather" have the Lamb given everything else was equal? (equally available, priced, etc.)

    ABSOLUTELY!
    If the Lamb was a regular run knife, I'd be saving every penny right away so I could buy one or two. I have no chance at the SFO, nor do I want to even bother to fight for it. I'm not even going to bother with the Ram at all. But a regular run Lamb would be amazing and offer more people a chance to get it, I'd be all-in. I'm sure the enthusiasm for the Lamb far exceeds that for the Ram.

    Ah, yes. But I’ve reserved a Ram with you anyway.

    For my part, I am only interested in the lambsfoot.

    @knifeswapper Due to the available handle choices, I will not purchase the Lambsfoot version (and the price doesn't help, either). But I am interested in a cocobolo-handled ram.

    If they started using crelicam-sourced ebony I would be interested in that, but until then I no longer purchase ebony.
