    Right, but I figured they had shipped out the 2000 or so pieces of each run initially. Is it possible they didn't? Would really like to get my hands on a DF2 that isn't marked up on the secondary market

    My guess is there was an issue with the Stretch and they ran some others them went back to the rest of the Stretch run. They could have misplaced some or had them in a quality hold for heat treat etc. Nothing wrong with hoping as this was a nice surprise for me! I don't think this oddity was planned, but who knows.

    Thanks for the info nccole. It helped to feed my addiction while also righting previous wrongs... Hap 40 stretch on the way!

    I'll get a pic tomorrow. I was chopping wilted flowers off. Kind of an odd thing, it's pretty light.

    Gotcha! My 4V mule has a light patina forming after all my chopping yesterday. Fun to watch!

    That must be the most perfect lamination line I've seen to date any of the HAP40's... How does the other side look like?

    That dog looks worried, I think he has good reason...

    Seriously, though! My stretch is super wonky in comparison. Think I may have figured out why mine was the last in the shop, haha!

    The other side is a bit less precise. Love it either way. And, no dogs were harmed in the making of this post - especially that one. ;).

    Well, yesterday I tried my hand at grilling a T-Bone steak, which turned out pretty OK I have to say:

    And, BOOM, insta-patina!

    I thought only the lamination lines would stain (like my SB stretch), but I'm pleased to see it all taking on some color.

    This is interesting. Same thing happen to my Dragonfly after cutting some fruit. I wonder why the cladding is staining...

    Maybe the cladding has some hap40 residue left on it from the grinding process? Just a guess.
