I’m getting emails and calls asking when I’m going to ship the Whalers. Actually, I started shipping the Iron Wood Saturday.
The Whalers are coming through piecemeal. The first box of Iron Wood arrived late last week, another box yesterday and the balance of Iron Wood are still on the way. My guess is I’ll see the Muscle Bone coming through in a similar manner. I assume GEC is trying to get knives in everyone’s hands as soon as possible and this means unless a dealer only ordered a few, they’re coming through in partial quantities.
IF you only ordered an Iron Wood, you should have received an invoice. If you paid the invoice, your knife is either in your hands or on its way. IF you ordered a Muscle Bone and an Iron Wood (or just a Muscle Bone), you probably haven’t been invoiced yet. As soon as the Muscle Bone arrives, invoices will start going out for the balance of the orders.
Lots of requests are coming through for specific handle coloration preferences. Sorry, but it’s just not possible to take care of everyone’s requests. I haven’t seen any of the Iron Wood that doesn’t look good. If you don’t like the looks of your knife, put it on Ebay. I just saw the first one sold on Ebay this AM for $250. Another is at auction with a current bid of $169.00 and another buy it now for $215.
I said earlier I was allowing 72 hours for payment of your invoices before your deposit was lost and your order cancelled. Several of you emailed and told me you were sending a money order which would run beyond the 72 hour window to get here. That’s fine. As long as I know what’s going on. IF I don’t hear from you or receive payment in the 72 hour window, I’m operating on the assumption you’re not going to complete the purchase and your order is cancelled.
I’m trying to fill orders in the sequence the orders were received. Believe me, the sooner I can ship the orders the happier we’ll all be!
