    Thanks Jon, no worries, Hoss spurred me into life on this, the situation has been bothering me for a while. Only among our members could something like this even be considered as a resolution I think. Amazing response.

    Guys -

    I saw that several people offered to donate wood. For those people who are donating time and skill, I would be happy to donate some wood for handles so you don't have to donate your own supplies. I have blocks of stabilized redwood that I would be happy to donate.

    I also got one of the knives from Eamon, paid in full.

    I have no skills that would benefit this but I can buy whatever wood or other supplies that may be needed. Just send me a message.

    I just want to that the people that have gotten this off the ground. I had pretty much written off this one since there has been no contact with Eamon.

    I think I have the spreadsheet caught up on this thread.

    Just FYI, I would definitely take a leather saya/sheath over a wooden one, but either is fine really. And the wood block I sent was Koa from Burl Source.

    I do want to caution the customers that we will be keeping this as simple as possible. We need to avoid upgrades and customizing on this project and stick to the original plan out of respect for the makers and their time.

    We ask for a tiny bit of latitude from the forum while we figure all this out. That being said, we do want to follow the polices in place.

    Love and respect

    Gentlepesons,

    I was chatting with Tim Johnson (formerly known as Taz575) about this effort. He'd like to help and has offered to do all the sayas as a batch. He's got basswood on hand, enough to make them all, or we could ship materials to him. I wanted to present this to you all and see if you think it's as good an idea as I do. Tim does good work and would ensure they are all comparable to one another. He also has access to the paper micarta that was spec'd for the handles.

    Thoughts?
