Don't worry "Sprink"...This IS a successful endeavor! It is going to happen, regardless! If no one else signs up, there are people on Sharperdeals auction who used to buy knives from Rick, who will want one of these. I am sure that some are waiting until the end of October to sign up.

I know what I said before about manufacturers. That "In God we trust, all others pay cash"! But, Angelo, in good faith, is making these knives, and he does not want me to pay him until they are done. I'm NOT letting you guys down. I am good for the funds to pay for this order. :mrgreen:

I should NOT have set a deadline for the sign-ups on the end of October... What do you think? I think that Rick would want everyone to have a chance to sign up for one. I have never done anything like this before, and that is why my thinking was so strict early on! Perhaps I should just set the deadline for sign-ups to November 15th. I will sleep on it and post a new deadline tomorrow night.
:D

Thank you John/MA, hwevers, and sprink for your payments! I have your address information entered into my Postal Service "Click-N-Ship" Address Book, so that there are no screw-ups when it comes time to ship your knives. Your email addies I use to have the PO notify you as to the progress of your shipment, including delivery status.

An update from Italy: Angelo has completed all the Sicilian's and Piccolo's, but he is waiting for the parts for the Diana's. he figures that those will be finished the first or second week in November. I will keep you posted with other updates. :D

I want to remind everybody of the charity that Rick liked. You don't have to buy a knife to donate to this cause! If you want to throw in a few dollars in Rick's memory, you can donate via a separate check made out to "Missing Animal Response Network", or you can donate via PayPal at the following page:

https://www.missinganimalresponse.com/paypal-payments/

Thanks!

Barb

I am bummed! I just had someone cancel, and I hope that it's the only cancellation! I am going to be stuck with enough knives as it is... :cry:

This is the cheapest I've seen any of these knives by at least 30USD - i can't see anyone being "stuck" with a knife numbered out of just 15 that's selling for 30+USD below what it usually goes for. I'm planning to buy more but I'm only holding out till the very end to make sure no one else wants one by then (don't wanna spoil it for anybody) perhaps others are the same way.

Luke, I had 4 guys sign up today, each for a Sicilian. There are only 2 Sicilians left now! Would you be interested in taking a Diana? That knife I am selling foe $20 less than at PVK, and they are not offering a leather sheath for that price, so actually, it is $30 more for the Diana retail. If that is not to your liking, than you might be interested in looking at the 9" Sicilian Ringpull on this website: https://www.pvk.vegas/category-s/464.htm OR, how about a Piccolo?

Correction: 3 Sicilians, 5 Dianas, and 1 Piccolo left!

I lowered the price of the "Diana" and the "Piccolo" by $1.00 to match the "Sicilian" price.

Hi Barb:

If that last Sicilian is still available, I'll take it.

Best regards,

Howard

Howard, PM sent.

Update from Angelo: At the end of NEXT week, he will start on the 10 Diana's. When he finishes them, he will engrave all the knives.

In the meantime, I am making up "Certificates of Authenticity" for EACH knife. When I am finished, I will send them to Angelo, who has enthusiastically agreed to sign!

He will ship them back with the knives. I am excited about this development!

Hi Barb:

We're going to DE to visit the grand kids. PMO for the 2nd Sicilian will be sent next week.

Best regards,
