I was just under the impression when we said we would be in for one or two. That would be the amount of the order plus some extra.
They limit their orders to 500 maybe a little more to account for factory errors. I think the interest thread was to gauge if they should order the maximum amount.

Yes I understand that and we are all boys at heart, none more than myself and I enjoy some of the foolmongery. Just thought it got off topic a tad too quick. 🙂

With all these green knives that may appear to be red. We should show some christmas knife sets. Some red and green and share some christmas plans while we are at it. All mine are packed sadly. Plus i think this forum knife might be my first green traditional. Speaking of firsts, this will be my first christmas not visiting any family. Just me, my wife, and kids. Pretty exciting for something so “relaxing”.

No way have we gone off topic…

That's the way it was in the past. I guess when you're dealing with GEC there is a limit and the whole process was blown out of the water...I must say It's a shame.

I want to thank GEC for making a beautiful knife for the porch this year. Imho it’s totally understandable that they have a limit on the number. Maybe what blows it out of the water are the forum members at large who scrambled to meet the criteria established by the traditional sub forum who are making it harder for those who genuinely did. That to me is a shame. 😔

I sure hope they can open the ordering back up. This would be the first forum knife I missed out on since 2012!
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE U.S. MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING AND ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FORUM KNIFE BUT DIDN'T GET ONE - READ ON!

I have held back a few knives until the exact number available is known. I won't know how many until GEC actually ships. If you claimed one in the original purchase thread but didn't get your forum knife email me at [email protected] and I will put you on the waiting list for the few remaining.

I WILL BE CHECKING YOUR STATUS SO NO NEWBS PLEASE. Numbers are limited so keep it real folks. Thank you.

Might not be your first green traditional because Hemlock Green is a shade of Red and black with just enough brown to trick people that wanted brown to vote for it 😁 🤫

The only question I have comes after this.... this forum knife is obviously going to be wonderful... beautiful scales, etc, and we are very fortunate to have them coming our way...

My question is, is there anything we can do, as Porch regulars, to help smooth the whole process out... help with vetting, anything to help ease the burden on Barry and Charlie. ( other than just shut up and wait for the knives to arrive, of course :cool: )

Due to ida, I’ve had limited internet. I came today and checked and tried to order. Guess it’s too late?
