Damascus Longclaw might not make it by Thanksgiving afterall. There were some done, but we had a few concerns, and had them redo something. This is an expensive sword, the last thing we want to to send one out that isn’t perfect. As much as I want to pull my hair out over delays, I think waiting is better than rushing. Hopefully everyone who buys this sword will cherish it for years (and hopefully it will appreciate in value for you as well, as I think it will) so what is a few more weeks? Still, we’re only talking about a portion of the lot, anyone who ordered now wouldn’t get fulfillment from this portion and wouldn’t get it until 2011 unfortunately.
On the ICE front. Ice will be open for preorders by the end of the first week of November, within about 2 weeks. A plethora of pictures will be released by that time.
