    Oh also....
    Sounds like you might have enough of your own $ to get the initial run going, but if financing becomes an issue, perhaps you could put it on kickstarter to get an initial investment. Just a thought.

    Financing is covered:devil1: Looking to get this started on my own financially. Trying to keep it a simple one piece design for the first runs and then we can get into more complex designs. I am working on a design so that you will be able to retain the factory latch from the BM51 with the new handles but you will lose the spring latch feature. Gotta get the first design finalized and locked in and then we can move on to more complex designs. My goal is to eventually be making complete knifes someday, but that will be a ways down the road:devil1:

    Yeah, I guess that could be said. I mean it doesn't necessarily enhance
    performance. It does prevent the latch from getting stuck between
    handles, but it has it's drawbacks as well. Also, if it means increasing
    the cost of a knife then perhaps that is not worth it.

    Old school T latch and a latch stop are my favorite.

    All right guys here is how it is gonna end up going. Do to the fact that Titanium is gonna cost about twice as much as SS i am gonna start up a order thread TUESDAY EVENING JULY 19th for these Titanium handles. I am posting this first so everyone has a chance to get in on this. There will be 25 sets being made in the first run. 21 sets will be available to anyone who wants to order a set. 4 sets are already reserved for future raffles/GAW's ETC. I know i said i did not want to take deposits on these but since the cost is gonna be much higher so a 50% deposit will be required.

    Here is how it will work. I will start the order thread TUESDAY JULY 19TH around 5-6PM ARIZONA TIME right here in the Bali section. It will be first come first serve. You will first post that you want a set, followed by a deposit of $100 per a set. The deposit must be made within 24 hours of the time stamp on your post. If payment is not recieved your post will be disregared. I will let the thread run for 2 weeks or til we fill up all 21 spots which ever comes first. Once we have all 21 spots full i will place the order that day and it will take 4-6 weeks to complete. If after 2 weeks we can not get all 21 spots filled then we will cancel and move on to the next project ( complete Bali ). If we do not fill all the spots your deposit will be refunded. Otherwise your deposit is non refundable, unless like i said we cancel or something falls short on my end.
