Damn. Let's back the truck up.

A relatively benign thread all of a sudden gets reported by everyone on here. I look in and a clusterf**k has broken out.

Southpaw, your wife sees something nobody else sees and you share that. OK. It's not a flattering observation but OK. But then you had to explain it. And then you had to provide pictures. Proving that the maker is part of some secret sect bent on world domination. Could have done without that.

Now I've got to moderate. A quick mention that perhaps this was not appropriate? Wholesale pruning? Shut it down?

It's a worthwhile thread that only turned to crap on the last few posts. Hopefully everyone can "un-see" the mess and I can leave it as such.



Twigg was a little harsh but that part is important.
Every post from #2472 on should be deleted. Simples

Okay moving past that, anyone on here order a custom black lotus? What’s the wait time?
I think Jeffs books are closed at the moment, at least last time when I talked with him. I have an custom from him. Lets just say that I sold my Tsourkan after I received it so he knows how to make a knife.

I love my Black Lotus. Pretty close to perfect ,a great price and Jeff is great to work with. As soon as I got mine went back on his list - estimated about a year wait. If you sign up for his email he posts a few knives every month for sale.

There’s a thing to pay 50 bucks to get in line. Once I get my honyaki (have something in the works) the Knife Dragon I’m chasing is getting bigger, so a shig kitaeji and a non Japanese specialist. Once I looked at the other black lotus examples I’m really into him.

Guess I should scrape up 1,300 and snag that dragon river... if only I was made of money

I have an 52100 mono WH from him. I wanted to get a simple blade first to see how I like it before going for a fancy one(I am on the waiting list atm). I dont usually like damascus and fancy stuff but Jeffs style looks really good in my eyes and I am hoping to get my one and only damascus blade from him.

Easttowest still has that kitaeji yanigaba...

What am I missing here? Is there some reason I shouldn’t buy from them? I mean it’s been up for at least a week I feel like!

Perhaps they have more than one. The price is a little over the usual asking from other sources, but not by much.

I reached out to him for the first time in roughly a year. Politely said to sue him as he has no net worth. Stated that he would make things right if it works out, but looking doubtful.
