Not I. I thought it was just me, but no one in the collector's club has theirs I'll put in an inquiry with Spyderco.

Rico-Nada on the Vesuvious so far. I sent in the response before the deadline, so hopefully, like yours, the order is being processed. Did you get the FB Lum? I think it is by far the best knife they have made. And how about a mini-military for the F-2003?

Dav,

I was wondering the same thing myself. I think any of those would work. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

103 - the Lum fixed blade is great. The traditional tanto blade makes it. Rico

Hey guys, here is the official word from Kelly (thanks Joyce):

"Because of the way the program is setup, we only send the main collector
piece to the collectors unless they are set up to receive variations. In
this case that would have been the original C66PBKI (inlayed Vesuvius). Any
variations that become available are offered at cost. For example if a
collector is set up for all variations - on the Salsa they would have
recieved one of every color and every edge configuration (Green Plain, Green
Combo, Blue Plain, Blue Combo, Gray Plain, Gray Combo, Titanium Combo)These
would be in addition to the main collector piece which was the Plain
Titanium."


Do we have any Collector's here who are set up to automatically receive variations and still hasn't gotten one?

Hm, a bit confusing, Carlos. What you're saying is, that I've already received the main piece, and the Forum model 2002 is just a variation? I thought all the Forum models were exceptions from this rule?

PS I am not signed to receive the variations automatically.

Here is the deal. If you are NOT automatically set up to receive ALL variations, then you will receive a letter from the collector program office(Kelly) asking you if you want the variation(s) being issued on any particular model. In this case, the Forum Vesuvius, the letters were issued and I for one elected to get it. So the paperwork takes a while to go back and forth from Kelly to collector and back to Kelly and get processed and 0 then over to the Outlet, who will then make the transaction and then mail the knives out to the collectors.

Meanwhile, the other 300 Forum models were up for grabs and being send everyday to folks who simply called up the outlet store and bought one. Quick buy. They got whichever serial number was available.

So the collectors got caught up in a red tape loop. We will get ours very soon-Right Kelly and RYAN?

There must not be 200 collectors clubies. If my math works at all, that would be 500, the stated run on the forum Vesuvius. I'm not Collector's Club. Mine's numbered 302. Am I wrong?

Weekend yet?

One more additional bit of information on the Collectors Club Forum Vesuvii (thanks again Joyce): They are being numbered this week, so those of you who are signed up for all variations, or whom elected to buy this variant, should be getting them shortly.

Jaxon: The collectors club gets numbers 001 through 200. 201 through 500 are for the open market.

Ladies and Gentelman, It is difficult wating for a new knife, especially when you are used to being the first. HA HA HA. RR

It is on the way, it will be here. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> A few more days just makes it even better when it does arrive. I know, I about died waiting for my #27 Chinese folder. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
