The Barges are here.

The UPS driver just dropped off the Barges. No, you're not getting yours tomorrow...

Edit: All 25 arrived on the same shipment. Three are out of the box, locks perfect, and inked.

It has begun.

I'll get the stones into water, and I'll set the press at the last optimum setting. Each knife might be off a tad, but all will be close. I want to get the set-up done tonight, and tomorrow afternoon we begin to cut steel!

First cut is with the Atoma 140. Fixture is on the correct setting, bevels are close to perfect, this one came out perfect.

I am a Kimber addict but an edge freak. So glad I joined after you started this deal or I'd have more knives than pistols.

Well, I have 26, now. A box of ten, a box of fifteen and one I had on the shelf.

I'm hoping Sheila can save me some.

I carry one, but then, it's "used."

I'm looking forward to getting them all delivered! This is the biggest single project I've ever worked on.

Actually, making the edge uniform is the problem, the polishing is the fun part.

My heart did miss a beat when I flipped on the computer this morning. Knifecenter is advertising the Barge.

Yikes, I called Blue Ridge and found out they still had +200 Barges in stock. Knifecenter got theirs from someone else!

Chico, I'm not sure if my name is on one of those Barges but if not please put me on the waiting list. There's no hurry. I just sent you a PM as well.
