    Oh yeah, looks great! Gonna look even better on my Tanaka!! In honor of his passing I'd like to dedicate the re-handling to him.

    Hi guys, just for all of you who bought a handle in the last week or so, between not getting to the post office, running out of boxes, and my printer dying I am a bit late with shipping things out. But the plan is to pack the rest up on Saturday while Germany beats Portugal in soccer and shipping it all out right after that. Thanks for your patience. Working on the next batches, by next week there should be quite a few other ones finished.

    Yeah, unfortunately I am notorious for long wait times. However, it's getting better. Unless I find a full time job on short notice, I will spend more time catching up. Next week I hope to cross about 25-30 handles off the order list. Still plenty left, but the wait time is moving from years to months...

    full time job? with this skill and service, i think you'd be make a lot of money just by selling handles alone. if you devote more time into it, i could only imagine the $$$ you'll be making.

    but back on topic, how long is the wait?

    I wish! My prices are too low, this is actually the first year with a potential to break into the profit zone - a few more years like that and I could break even overall And I always say it's a small market of crazy people (myself included, of course), but nothing to build an existence on.

    Anyway, as for wait time, I would say sometime in September is realistic the way things are going now. Many times I don't strictly go in the order on my list because it is more efficient to bundle similar ones into one batch. And if it's a very 'simple' design, I can sometimes just squeeze them in somehow. But overall, I try to be fair and respect the order sequence.
