David I am very glad you are satisfied. You are correct in the dirt LOL, that is the reason everyone got a cleaning cloth also. I thought it was appropriate since I did not want to be the cleaner of the knife.
It seems that we all feel as I did about this knife, as a whole it was a winner for our community
Got mine today too, thanks for the fast shipping. It's a good looking knife. I always like getting another whittler pattern. Overall I found it to be well made and pretty clean. I always take a piece of flannel and thoroughly clean every nook and cranny and this was better than many. Surprising to me how much dirt can lurk in nail pulls and between the liners on otherwise pristine knives, even customs. Anyway, the one area, at least on my sample, that may have led to the initial rejection by JBF Champlin is the walk & talk. The main blade and one of the pen blades is OK but the pen blade with the 1 of 50 etch is very hard to open yet rather slack once opened. I had to dig out my knife pick to open it, none of my nails was up to the job. Given the unique pattern, history and good looks, it's still a satisfying purchase.
Thanks Ashley! No they are not perfect but like you, nothing was enough to keep me from getting the history and this fantastic knife for our members. I am glad you like it
Never mind with my last post I got it today. There's a couple minor flaws that I noticed but nothing that would make me not buy the knife. So glad I have a peice of history! Thank you!
Thanks Floyd, I just really wanted to be able to offer the uniqueness of this knife
Hey Jan, got the little Electric club knife today. Very pleased! Thanks for the grand idea and all the work. I've looked it over and can find no problem with it. The pulls are a little lite but not a real problem. I like it. Thanks for a great IKC knife.
Was wondering if you plan on sending out tracking when you ship them out?
I love all the history to this one that's why I had to jump on it. History behind a knife can make it more appealing to me!
They did not like them. I spoke with Mike Losicco this afternoon and he did not like the fit and finish. I found nothing wrong with it. These are not custom knives they are production knives and production knives are rarely absolutely perfect. I knew at the time that it had happened and that they were sent to the Queen safe. The reason I wanted them when I saw they were coming available was the rejection, Queens bankruptcy and the material. You cannot get any more history packed into one knife than this one LOL
Nice pattern, ordered mine. The COA states these were rejected by J.B.F. Champlin, any idea why?
