Hi Jazz,

Will you email your mailing address to me? I've got this proto I'm trying to unload.

Wow, the proto is already finished. I'll bet Jazz will be pretty stoked. :D

Email sent! Couldn't be more stoked. :D I'll give it a thorough workout and report when it arrives. Sal, am I allowed to post pics of it, or not?
- best wishes, Jazz.

I'm just tripping out seeing this development process, and again at how fast a prototype has manifested. Congratulations Jazz! You're the man Sal!

Man, this is such a quality thread. Sal, exceptional company you're running! (Of course, we all already knew this, but threads like this just continue to confirm.) And Jazz, can't wait to hear details of how it handles for you!

I just read through the whole thread.. I think all of the features for this proto knife that Jazz has come up with are awesome. I would ABSOLUTELY purchase a knife like this. Most of the cutting tasks I do at work (boxes, zip ties, nylon banding, gorrila tape) would be IDEAL with a knife like Jazz's..

Hey 10Just,

Where do you live?

Jazz,

The knife was shipped early last week but it takes time to get there. Shouldn't be any customs problems as it is legal in Canada.

Just curious. You seem to be an exceptional young man and I was curious. GoldenSpyder is another.

Guess what came to my door step? A prototype Delica Wharnie. It looks exactly like my drawing with the FFG blade. All I can say right now is I know it's going to be a perfect work knife without even using it yet. My wife got to use it first to open a package and said it was nice and light. The FFG is perfect. I can't wait to cut stuff. It's grocery day at work, so it'll get a workout right off the bat. Anyway, I'll report more later, and take better pics with a camera too, when I get time. Even for an normal EDC, it would be excellent. I hope there's enough interest. Also, it's a proto, so it's unmarked (looks weird with no Spyderco logo) and I have no idea what the steel is. I hope Sal will let me know. Unless not knowing is part of the testing. Enough talk for now...
