    My response to their response:

    Is there anyway I could get a hold of a few from you guys?

    Ok I got one from the SHOT Show. What kind of price are you willing to pay. I might not like it anymore and want to sell. New never Used.

    You can email me or pm.

    I'll give you twice what you paid for it and some cookies.
    ;D
    If I was you, just a recommendation, I'd put it up for trade/sale in the B/S/T forum and see what you get for offers.

    FlipMag, I got the same reply. Sounds like they're listening. My reply also mentioned the "overwhelming" amount of requests for the Shard. Looks like I wasn't the only one to ask if Gerber any more laying around. ;D

    I'm still kind of on the fence about the Shard, but I sent an email anyway just for the cause.

    I think the key is that it will presumably be a sub-$10 item. Since the Artifact is $10, and obviously more robust, I don't know how you could go wrong with the Shard for $10 or less. Although some of us on here clearly have issues about buying stuff like this, myself most certainly included.

    My hopes are officially up. Bearing in mind this poor woman has had at least 5 (edit, 6) emails just from this forum just from this thread within the past 24 hours, i can see her being convinced there is interest in any case :)

    We do not allow the contents of private communications (email, PM's, or otherwise) to be posted on EDCF, per Rule 2b. Several posts have been editted or removed in order to remove such content.

    I've also sent them an email, I will ask my friends to send them emails too
    Maybe we can post info about this tool on other forums and blogs too
    I also have the Artifact - and I love it!

    I got a reply from Gerber saying the same thing as above, however my buddy got one that said "looks like you and your friends have all emailed at the same time..." along with the same stuff as everyone else.

    Seems like they are getting overwhelmed and may think about making them....

    Here's hoping.

    Id be very shocked if they havent found this thread (its the 4th result via google search) - no shock they will have gone looking given they got a dozen emails at least within a couple of days.

    Id like to think this is positive overall, but it might make them less inclined to produce it than if it were just a bunch of random people. But in any event we wont lose anything because they had no intentions of making it full scale, so right now i think the best chance of this being produced.

    Hopefully, someone like Jon (who owns this forum) or the dude who owns EDCdepot (sharpdogs?) and people like that who have the ability to distribute it through their shops can get on board and lend their support to the item, but in any case even if not id like to think a vocal minority from this forum can wake them up to the appeal this simple little tool can have - to be at least as popular as the Artifact, if not a lot more so.

    I still want one darnit, hahahahaha :) :D

    They replied to me. Basically they said they did not have any available, but would pass along my interest to their product development folks.

    I pestered them as well. Can't hurt and only takes a few seconds. And who knows - maybe something will come out of it... ;)
