I am assuming none of you are left handed.

WTF... Are you kidding me? Another delay!?

Edit: yes I'm left handed if it's not obvious from my response.

Nah. I might have the first time around but at this point all the anticipation (and most of the frustration) is gone so I'm not going out of my way to track it down. It'll get here when it gets here... if it gets here. Until then, the mishaps at least make for a good laugh.

I am left handed, ordered two of them and nary a word yet. As I said in a previous post I am a very patient man.

I was told RYP was in Italy at the factory so hopefully we will get an update from him here on when the lefty's will get their knives..

The (my) eagle landed yesterday. Looking great so far. Will report thoughts on it after some usage.

EDIT: The lock-up on this thing is insane. If opening by hand it's easy to pull the lock and fold. If opened quickly (flicked) or deployed out of the pocket I'm not able to close it by hand and have to use something to pry the lock open.

The Left Handers have to completely engineered and machined (other than the blade. Even the Rotoblock is different. I saw them at the factory a week ago so they are looking good!

Holy smokes, what happened? I know us lefty's are a pain in the ass, but what happened? Put a right hand bevel on everything instead of mirror imaging the lock?

Keep us posted please - don't blow smoke up our asses telling us things are done at this point. If its two months, then its two months.. hell its been 3 so far, if you haven't lost us yet, you're not going to, LOL

For those, if any, that are still waiting and care about the info, #187 landed today in Montreal Canada. Its in my hand right now.

Thank you very much RYP and your crew!

PS: the most impressive fact is, the knife went throught Canada's custom and survived this hostile environment.

mine has been shipped to Canada on the 18th but is still not seen, I am hoping tomorrow is the day for 159. This pigsticker has work to do overseas really soon...

Still hoping...
