I will edit the Knife Assignment List to reflect the order of the Reservation and PAID List.

Also, I have chosen the safest way to ship the knives to me, and that is Registered Mail. (Angelo COULD ship them UPS, but it would cost more! I used up my budget on these knives to produce Certificates of Authenticity, and ship them both ways!) It will take longer for the knives to get here, but I am heeding Angelo's advise.

I DO expect payments once the knives arrive. I'll allow 10 mailing days after the knives arrive. That is my grace period. I will erase all the other terms I have posted, and hope this is fair.

It is with great excitement and pure joy that I share this picture with you!! These knives are going to be beautiful!! Angelo sent me the picture this morning.

A couple things worth noting: The boxes for the Sicilians are made of heavy paper, not cardboard like I imagined. (Initially he said they were "nice boxes", so I assumed they were cardboard.) The knives will be engraved next Wednesday, and they will be shipped the following week. :mrgreen:

I have two Diana's left!! Here is the picture of each model, what it will look like engraved:

It is just 4 days from payment due date, and I haven't heard from anyone. Please touch base with me and let me know what your plans are. That is all I'm asking for right now. Take care, guys, and please write me!

I hope that I will hear from you guys. I am not asking for a lot. Just a PM and a short message. I need your address and email address, as I am preparing the certificates for mailing. It would be very helpful!

I am enclosing a collectible stamp, that has a muskat, an axe, and a Bowie knife on it. David purchased them, thinking that you guys might get a kick out of it!

The knives are ready and packaged to ship! I am in Los Angeles, and can't wire money to Italy until Monday. If I didn't have to be at this convention, those knives would have shipped maybe tomorrow. Shipping via Registered Mail takes longer, but keeps our shipment safe (from seizure).

Angelo has a surprise for the Sicilian owners, but I want to keep it that way until I see it for myself. I hesitate to guess what it looks like, and don't want to make the same mistake twice!

He has been SO kind to us, and I hope that everyone remembers that in the future. He makes the BEST knives, I feel. (I'm looking into getting one of those "Zero's" he makes.)

He tried to find the best Brazilian Horn, and otherwise put his heart and soul into making these knives. I am almost holding my breath, anticipating what they look like! I will announce their arrival and my first impressions of them when that day comes...and that is sooner than we all thought! :mrgreen:

I just learned that TWO of the 4 packages of knives and sheaths HAVE SHIPPED, so they will arrive in about 10 MAILING days. So, 1/2 to 2/3's of the knives are already on the way. Woo-Hoo!!! :mrgreen:

Sort of, Mike! I've been talking to the wind for quite a while now...LOL!! I am thankful that you talk back to me! By the way, has anyone heard from Omega??? I am a little worried about him--he is not answering his phone, his emails, and I am just hoping that I pissed him off in some way, and that nothing is wrong!
