    Sorry Guys I have neglected this. Have been dealing with a pretty important thing for my business, its a good thing, ill let you all know in due course as things evolve.
    Anyway here is where we are
    Whole process

    John Thomas 3
    Bill burke 1
    Don Nguyen 1
    Mike Davis 2
    Will Catcheside 2
    T.B.London 2
    Johnny 2?
    Marko 2?

    That would be all 15 covered.
    Z I see you have sent out some pm's thank you. You have been a rock. Could you all make sure you send you shipping info to Zweifel.
    Mine and T.B's can go together. I'll send you my details and notes so I don't get charged duty on them.
    Some are going to Tim? Can Tim post them on to makers from there.
    How is the postage kitty doing? Will we have enough to cover postage for this first stage at the moment?
    Cheers All
    Will

    Thanks Will! Tim has 3 of the blades. I believe he, Johnny Chance, and Marko(?) are going to finish them and put handles on them, so I don't expect us to need to ship them on from there.

    Here's the tally right now:

    Tim/Johnny/Marko: 3 Received
    Bill Burke: 1 Posted Tomorrow(including walnut burl for mc2442)
    Don Nguyen: 1 Posted Tomorrow
    Mike Davis: 2 Posted Tomorrow (including Ironwood scales for Pensacola Tiger)
    John Thomas: 3 getting shipping info from Devin, will probably include KOA from choll
    Will/TB_London: 4 getting shipping info, will include various partially finished handles from Eamon

    That tallies to 14, due to the 3 sent to Tim for the Sayas...I can ship one or more to Tim/Johnny/Marko if that's what makes the most sense.

    The Kitty is pretty good right now, the total after today's shipping is $259.79 I'm not sure what the shipping to the UK will be, but the average here in the states has been ~$10.

    HTH!

    Have shipping info for these, will post tomorrow. Once I confirm with Tim/JohnnyChance, I'll ship the remaining blade and 4 blocks (Choll's Koa, and 3 ironwood blocks donated by Son) for these 4.

    That should be all of the blades.

    There is still a significant amount of material left after this. Any ideas for what to do with it all? It includes several stones in good condition, some nice leather for strops, and several pieces of interesting, but unstabilized wood.

    Thanks everyone for doing this, You guys are awesome. Now who wants to make me some sayas.lol Got no more money and nothing else to give away. counted all the knives I originally traded for sayas and rehandle work and it comes out to 11 sayas and 2 rehandles. If anyone is interested I would be most appreciative if not I understand, I'll just old school them (cardboard and electrical tape.lol Maybe I can find some really big mouse traps.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I haven't been checking the forum as I am getting ready to move to japan as early as this fall to as late as this winter. I just want to thank the people who got this rolling, the folks who are volunteering their time and efforts, the members who have donated. An amazing group of individuals here no doubt.

    If any of the folks who have helped out have an interest in any of those things, just give it to them as a token of appreciation.

    Or put it up for sale. Or list it, have people make a single bid for the items they're interested in, and sell to the highest bidder. I'm not sure if there are still outstanding costs. If there is extra money, it could also be given to some of the good folks who helped out on this. I suspect some folks might be extra generous with their bids, being inspired by all the graciousness and teamwork of all those who have been working on this project.

    I'd be interested in strops or stones. Would be willing to bid or send in another contribution.
