    I just ordered an SBT and noticed a problem with the link to Rods email.

    When you click the email link that says “rod@skookumbushtool.com” it actually sends an email to “vondag@centurytel.net”. The email them comes back as not being sent because “vondag@centurytel.net“ is an invalid email address.

    Just a heads up because I didn’t want anyone waiting four years for a knife that might not be ordered. I also sent Rod an email about the problem too.

    Rod has been having problems with the internet company he uses. I will give him a call today and tell him the issues have not been fixed.

    Do you know which email he uses for orders, the rod@skookumbushtool.com or vondag@centurytel.net? Thanks

    I called up Rod and left a message, assuming he is hard at work in his knife shop making truly kick ass knives. I see the problem, he no longer uses Centurytel as an internet provider. I will give him a call tomorrow morning and get the new email address and tell him of the problem.

    Don't care anymore......never got a confirmation that I'm on the list or not..........even though email's sent.....communication is not a forte.......I've got one in 01 .......if I see one on the market at a price I like I'll buy it.......could be worse.....at least Rod's not like the one's who take your money and never deliver.....

    I've tried numerous times because I changed jobs and therefore emails. I've been trying to reach him to let him know. I know my number should be up anytime for my knife. If someone can contact him for me it would be appreciated.

    I do believe Rod told me a few years back that he gave me your slot. Don’t worry about reaching him. I’ll let you know when I get your knife and I’ll send a picture every now and then. It’s gonna be fun!

    vondag@centurytel.net was/is Rod's paypal address. I used this one last year.

    rod@skookumbushtool.com was/is his contact email. He replied to this one few months ago.

    But he hasn't answered an email since end of november of last year.

    Communication is definitely a challenge.

    I talked to Rod. He did not know that his website has the wrong e-mail address, he said he is going to connect the company that hosts his website and get it cleared up. The centruytel.net is his old address before he switched internet providers last year.

    I did not ask him what his new address is as I try to stay out of his business, we talked Nordic skiing instead.

    @operatord I talked to Rod today nordic skiing. His email address for knife work is the rod@skookumbushtool.com Send an email straight to that address and it should work. Rod did mention that he does indeed read every email even if he is lousy at responding.

    Thank you for your time with this! I’ll post pictures of it in about four years so you can see the finished masterpiece.


    BTW I went with the traditional red handle:dblthumb:

    I had exchanged emails with Rod a couple of weeks ago, after he finished my knife. When I asked him for my order tracking info, he responded very promptly. I used rod@skookumbushtool.com
