I don't think the demand is over yet, they are still going for big prices on the auction site.
Demand is not over but you can expect to see them around 170ish on there in the very near future, which isn't bad, all things considered.

No sweat, NGK = New Graham Knives. The acronym business is a carryover from the Blade Forums, where they forbid the mention of sites that don't contribute to supporting theirs as a preferred knife vendor. Unfortunately, NGK now shows 0 in stock, so someone got the message! A wicked blade she is!

Thanks for the info, I was able to google the site. I have the Cruwear Miltary already and I agree it is a great knife. Just got the S90V version so I get to compare the two.

Thanks K1W1 for the heads up. Ordered one then checked back and they were out of stock again.

Landon, as it has happened before, they put them up for sale about 3 days before they get them in... on a pre-order basis, then all they have to do is ship once they get them.

Same here (should get it tomorrow). I prefer this procedure (get email notification and click through to website to order) rather than his previous procedure of telling everyone that they will be available on a certain date and forcing people to watch the website constantly. I missed it the first time due to work obligations.

I just noticed Knivesplus has some left in stock for anyone who hasn't gotten theirs or is looking for a backup!

I ordered mine from Knives Plus on Saturday and was waiting for a ship notice Monday. Instead, here is an excerpt from an email I received.

" Greetings!The item you ordered is discontinued and sold out.We will not be able to get any more of these in stock.We will cancel this order.Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."

Oh well, thems the breaks. Thought I'd share.
