While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes.

    Cant say for sure. The price on the pre made full tang is already quite a bit lower than a custom order.

    So at this point we have 14 commitments on knives, and one blade blank, with two more knives possible. If you see any corrections that need to be made, please let me know so that I can address them.

    We are at a price of $325, with a 50% deposit required. Shipping will be included in the final payment. Shipping costs will be $9 for knives with a final destination in the continental United States. The deposit will be non refundable, except for extenuating circumstances with the final judgement being mine. If for some unforeseen event I am unable to complete the knives or some tragic event happens, deposits will be refunded as soon as possible.

    Thank you,
    Matt

    So we have 15 commitments on knives, and one blade blank, with two more knives possible.

    At these numbers they will cost $325. I'll need deposits of $162.50 with a final payment of $171.50 to cover shipping ($9 in the USA. Outside the continental USA please contact for a shipping quote).

    Payments can be made to nygreencav@hotmail.com through PAYPAL.

    I'll need you to send an E-MAIL to order@mpknives.com titled "Group Purchase" which will need to include your shipping and contact information (Telephone Number, forum name, full name, shipping address), as well as the paypal transaction ID, and the bevel type.

    For Check or Money Orders, please send to:
    MP Knives
    80 Pumpkin Swamp Rd
    Florida, NY
    10921

    If you will be sending a check or money order, please make a note of that in the Email.

    If only 4 people actually come through and make a deposit, the price will have to change(or we will make refunds), but everyone seems pretty sure so I think we'll be just fine. I'll give it a few days for everyone's deposits to get in before I start ordering materials.

    Thank you,
    Matthew M Paul

    Two for me and one for a t.darrah pass-around (selfish I know, two for me and only one to pass-around. No one has ever accused me of being a good guy).

    Was that your custom that was posted recently?

    That knife gave me a serious case of knife envy the second I saw it.

    I have ordered a few knives over the years, but I have never been as anxious or excited about any of them as I am this one.

    Just corfirmed 1 + a blank. Not sure if that's +1 or +2 on the total. Either way, you guys who committed get on this so Matt can get pounding, cutting and glueing.

    No worries. They'll all have 90deg edges on the spine near the handle/mid section, rounded/chamfered near the tip.

    I got the steel in yesterday.

    Perfect, thank you.
    Yeah I think 14 plus the blanks.
    Steel is cut up, belts ordered, copper bar stock for the bolsters and pommels on the way (all four feet of it), I've got someone coming in this afternoon to start cutting up birch bark. and some S7 in 7/8" round to make some better punches and drifts for the bolsters and pommels.

    I don't recall if I mentioned it before or not, but I'm really damn excited about this knife!
