    Whee doggies!! That's alot of work right there!!! I must apologize to you Gents... These also have taken a bit more time than anticipated (this is my busiest time of the year, and things come up), and I know many have been anxious... But I'll have 'em on their way to Jon in the morning, he'll probably recieve them Monday/Tuesday... Thank you all for your patience!

    I've read this whole thread but couldn't find the answer...

    I'm peicing together an order for a few items on the EDC store and would like to add one of these knives to the order, but don't know how long the wait is ??

    Will hold off ordering the other items till I know. Cheers.

    Hope this helps. You could go ahead and order the rest of your items from the store, shipping is included in the
    price of the knife. That way you are sure the other items don't sell out before you order, and you won't have any
    extra shipping charges for the knife.

    Cheers Wilson. Yeah I'll definitely be up for quite a bit of extra shipping down here to Aussie land. I don't mind though. It's pretty much par for the course. I'm used to paying in excess of $45 shipping for nearly everything I order from the USA.

    I have had a bit of a rethink on this knife though...

    I have a really old and beat up Opinel #9 that rarely gets used.

    I have Leatherman Surge, Skeletool CX, and Style CS.

    I would like to own and use a nice fixed blade .. But the multiple purposes I have in mind may not be suitable for a wooden handled knife due to the need to wash it often in water after food prep.

    I'm currently looking for a fixed blade of small to medium size, the handle of which will cope with soapy water washing on a regular basis..

    Not sure if it makes a difference, but the handle has a micarta bolster and a synthetic scale.

    Sorry , I'm not well versed in knife language, so I had to google bolster and scales.

    All I know is blade and handle.

    My opinel blade rusts easily and the handle doesn't like water much.

    My surge is SS and hasn't shown any signs of rust yet, but it's my daily work tool and gets used for some grubby jobs. It doesn't go near food.

    My Skelly gets light duty and is a reasonably clean knife but has lotsa nooks and crannies to harbor stuff. Not keen on using it for any food, but have occasionally.

    Would like to own a nice fixed blade that is relatively easy to keep clean enough for food use as well as other duties.

    I saw the MM drop point and loved the look straight away. Closely followed by the boker gnome.

    Only real issue with the Michael Morris / EDCF knife would be to dry & oil it after use, to prevent rust....I use mineral oil on my "food knives", and Marine Tuff-Glide on everything else.

    Otherwise, this knife would have no problems at all with hot soapy water....no nooks & crannies, and the scales & bolster are impervious to swelling,etc.

    Hope that helps!

    ~Gnarly :evilgrin:

    P.S. The Boker Gnome is less than half the size of the MM/EDCF knife.
    It's a cute little knife, but too small for much use.....it's a two-finger-grip, max.
    It would be handy....if that's all you had.
    JMO.
