    Cool Hiromoto AS Re-Handle Group Buy is ON!

    OK rather than sit around debating this I decided to just go for it.

    See Hiromoto Tenmi-Jyuraku Aogami Super Steel (AS) Re-Handle Group Buy for details.

    A few changes in pricing & options have been made this time around. The pricing is better than what was offered the last time. I added in blade thinning as an option yet some other options have been removed.

    Included in the price:
    Knife
    Rounding of spine/choil
    Re-handling with stabilized wood (your choice)
    Sharpening Service (our specialty)

    *Group buy will end when minimum orders needed are received.

    If you have any question please feel free to ask.

    Thanks everyone!
    Dave

    Since I've never been involved with a group buy or even seen one take place I'm going to guess how this works. You click on the above link, make your selection along with your desired additional options and add them to your cart. You check-out and make a full payment. Once there has been enough individual orders placed, a mass order will be placed with Hiromoto. Then some time in the not too far future you'll notify the buyers to make their selection for their handles. Then we just wait until you're done with what ever work needs to be done and someday a package will show up at our door.

    Does that pretty much sum up the whole process up?

    Though the timeline for delivery, at least in my experience, wasn't completely vague or indeterminate. Dave was really good about keeping people posted with "the list" of orders, our place on the list, and how far along we were. I think my knife took about nine of the "8-12 weeks" I was quoted.

    So we could have our knives by mid-November or at least by Xmas. That's close enough to the holidays that I could convince my wife that this is a Xmas present for me and she could take it and put it away until them. This sounds like a plan.

    Dave, if I wasn't set on two things: 1) Falling in love with wa handles and 2) getting one of your knives and an Ealy knife as my last two yo handled knife (well last two for maybe a month )

    I would be totally on this. Great knife, Great Handle

    Cool, I was thinking that but wasn't 100% sure. It's always nice to have a face with a username.
