    I do have the loveless boot knife pattern off the original pattern, that would adapt nicely.

    Looks like you got a voucher:thumbsup:
    We tend to be a little critical when a new maker/model comes out with promises of something new so please don't interpret any skepticism or whatever as an excuse not to follow through.
    Having some experience on how things like this work, I'm predicting one major change from the original plans, which will cause SOMEBODY to say "wait, it's not the thing you said last time...BOOOO"

    It's not bait and switch, dummies, it's life.
    As you were...
