I have good news and bad news - depending on how you are about these things.
I have decided to order the latest JD forum knife. I conducted a POLL at the Mickley household and the vote was unanimous.
It will be in solid aluminum frame, red satin finish with black hardware. The JD logo will be on there as it was on the last one. This is for the medium Brend Protech. The blade will be satin finish.
I don't have a final price yet but as soon as I finish up the details with Protech, I will list the price and let you all start your pre-ordering. Pre-ordering/paying saves you $25. I will let you know when the listing is up active on my web site.
Part of this order is also a special run of 20 for a company of soliders in the shit in Afghanistan. We'll (Tubtar and I) will be looking for knife sponsors there. Protech will be kicking in another 5 for this cause.
Anyone that wants to bitch about how this is going down should send their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or better yet pony up $10 grand and do it themselves so I can cancel my order.
