The first batch is done, but there is a caveat.

Because there were some blades we rejected for quality reasons, this first shipment is not going to contain linear edition numbers. For instance, we rejected #7, so this shipment will not include a #7. The person who would have #7 is going to be given the option of #8 or waiting, and so on. The first shipment is 54 swords, but goes up to number 87. The numbers skipped will be remade, but they will not make it until the second shipment

We will be trying to contact everyone individually, but you could save us some time if you do not care. So if you ordered Longclaw, and you would rather have the sword sooner, than wait for a potentially lower number, please contact us via email or respond to this post (with your name please so we can look you up) and let us know.

It is still 4+ weeks before they actually get in your hands at this point, but if you wait for the second shipment it could be 4 months.

The shipment is supposed to contain these numbers:

1,2,3,4,5,6, 8,9, 12,13,14,15,16, 20, 22, 25, 27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34, 36, 38, 43,44, 46, 48, 50, 54,55, 57,
60, 62,63, 66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73,74, 76, 78, 79, 80,81,84,85, 87.

So if I have previously told you your rough position (and it would be rough, there have been a handful of cancellations moving people up) count down that many numbers to see which one you could have from this shipment (approximately, if someone decides to wait, you move up this list).

This is a great example of why we cannot offer this kind of number matching service on the other swords where we’re dealing with 2000+ blades.
