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.
Thanks for the Update!!
Thanks for the update.
Will Ice be ready for Christmas? Any idea on price yet?
Awesome, can’t wait to see ICE and order one!
Valyrian, I applaud you fastidious level of quality assurance and incessant pursuit for excellence. Keep up the great work.
Hi Valyrian, would you be kind enough to tell me where I stand in the line, and if I will be among those who will be receiving the first shipment (also, any additional information about the shipping date would be highly appreciated).
I too am curious about my place in line. I ordered in early-mid October, I believe, so I guess I’m looking at 2011 too.
Hello Valyrian, I would like to reiterate my question as posted above. Any additional information about the progress of the sword would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Definitely not going to arrive by Thanksgiving, but maybe by Christmas, I hope to have a definitive update soon. The first batch IS finished.
Ben, I think you’re #50, so you’re just barely in the first batch. I can’t promise it, because if there is a bad sword or something everything moves up. But as of right now, it looks like you will get one.
