    I'd like to officially announce that I'm out of retirement now.

    I'll expand on what Zoid said...

    Any Asian with a Balibalistic and Hom collection gets moved to the front of the list. That's only fair:madaddy:

    Then I'll expand further on what both ATA and Zoid mentioned.....

    youngsters honor and respect their elders, meaning that Older asians will be bumped to the top of the list, making sure they got a spot.

    Well, since you're Caucasian too, maybe we can put our handle and blade halves together and share a knife :ross:

    I'm curious as to the price difference.

    The Tempests were $550 through Jerry and these will be $875... that's a big jump from a Bali that is very similar but with slightly different handle dimensions.

    Makes me wonder if;

    a) A Shawn Greacen ground blade costs more than a Todd Begg ground blade

    b) The changes to the handle design equate to a $300 price difference.

    c) Combination of a and b

    d) Jerry has come to his senses and is charging more for his Bali's (If that's the case the ti should really be up over 1k and the Zirconium and Moku closer to 2k) IMO if Asians are buying these they can afford it easy :bwah:

    c) Other factors I have no idea about.

    The handles are thicker. Thicker costs more.

    There are fewer handles total. Less quantity costs more. The handles have the same work as the Tempest plus hand shaping and finishing.

    The blades are not all going to be one type.

    Shipping to Canada costs more.

    Shawns time is not cheap.

    This bali is similar in design but not similar in hand work involved. Less total quantity too.

    Lastly, is cost the only factor in pricing?
