    The List - I would like to clean it up if possible, so we have 15 numbers and 15 names. Or 16 now as the case may be, Each person on the list clarify with Zweifel if you had a special wood for the handle and what it was, I think we have most of that, or standard handle.

    A couple of people wish to have their blades sent directly to them for handling themselves - this needs to be an option on there and it reduces the load.


    Worker list, I will give this some thought and attention for a realistic plan of attack.
    Bill Burke and John Thomas have offered to do the whole process on some knives,
    John 3
    Bill 1

    There may be a couple of others who will prefer to do this than do a part process. This is good as it reduces the main bulk of knives, so if possible we can do the remaining bulk in one chain of processes.

    What remains I would suggest would be most efficient to break it down into

    Make handles - It would be easier if one person made all the handles if possible, one blade can be sent to them to work off, they are all the same and can ultimately be burned in for a tight fit.

    Making Saya- We have a very kind offer to do this, again one knife will be sent as example.

    Blade finishing - they are currently rough hand rubbed to 180 grit, Eamons promise was to flat them and stone finish them.

    Assembly and final finish - Final rub down of the handle, burn tang in as necessary- and epoxy in place, clean up.

    Honing - This could be in with final finish but it will depend on who is happy doing what. Obviously honing has to be the final final step before packing up and sending off.

    I can give detailed instruction where required.

    Thats a bit general, but just letting you know my thoughts on the direction this could go in. I can see shipping is going to get complicated but we need to get it done somehow. Thanks All

    I can finish and or hone. I can hand rub with wet dry to what every grit/finish is needed.. all the way to crocus paper... diamond spray on champagne cork and I have the pads from lee valley that go to 12000? I have other 'stuff' too. be a good excuse to buy that .25 micron diamond powder or I can purchase and ship finishing supplies to whomever

    Many thanks to everyone for volunteering their time and skills to help!

    I would prefer to still get a knife, but am fine with whatever shakes out. Whether it is a raffle for them, paying extra to compensate those who did not get one, etc. If I end up with nothing....oh well.

    I will have to go back through the post to find who was collecting for shipping and PM for details.

    You're on the list now Matt, also thank you for your very generous donation to the shipping kitty!

    sachem allison
    mr drinky - Provided wood for handle that needs to be returned.
    SpikeC
    PabloZ
    Thanks so much for jumping in and helping out with this Rick, I was out of commission for most of the night with some mild-food poisoning and you kept the ball rolling.

    Thanks Guys its all there, with all the generous offers of help. I have a plan just need to go through the thread and organize it properly. I will have a chance to do that tomorrow after work. But please anything you would like to contribute or ideas add away and I will look over it all tomorrow and make a proposal for a plan of action. The postage im not sure about yet, many have offered to contribute even some not waiting on anything! So I think probably a postage kitty is the fairest way to do it, from which people may be compensated from, that way no one is down more than anyone else. If this were fair and acceptable to the group. I believe we have a nice list of workers and possible tasks, so this will help me work it out tomorrow. Sorry not to do it today but the time was not available. Thanks All, we will get there.
    Will

Completion wise it will take me probably up to 6 weeks, as I need to get my paid up custom orders and unfinished ready-made orders straight first.

    Anyway, one way or another, we will sort this out. Maybe other makers will step up with a similar gesture.

    Eamon, if you read this, you are off the hook, but please return the remaining knives you owe folks. This would be a good start in your rehabilitation in the eyes of the community.

    I would be more than please to step up to the plate with a donation like Markos. Either a 180 petty or a 210 suji, new owners choice!
    Do not tell me I can't, let me succeed or fail. Even a failure is a small success.

    Very cool of you to join in with Marko (and I'm not sure who else).

    I would happily participate in some type of raffle that would help some folks get their money back, if they prefer that to the finished blade. The gestures and community spirit in this whole effort have left a deep impression on me. I'd love the chance to have some part of that.

    And I really, really hope the folks who sent in knives will have them returned. While I can understand unfinished projects, keeping people's property is just totally wrong.
