    I feel your pain... checking email in the morning when I get up... whenever I can sneak a peak at work through webmail, then at home in the evenings! ARRRGGHHH! It will be over soon, and better to not hear than to hear that they are all spoken for!

    Accually, I'd rather hear that they are spoken of. Then I can go for my unlimited Anduril... asuming that I dont get the limited one. :)

    Yes it was presidents day and the US postal service did not run. However we ship by UPS and DHL so it did not effect shiping. Our last Andurils are shiping today and tomorrow. The balance of our Elven Hunting Knives will go out this week as well.

    It is still to early to tell but right now it looks like we will only have a few Aidurils left after filling all our pre-orders. My guess is less than six or so. We will know more tomorrow after our pre-orders are filled.

    Thanks Swordsman. I must have misunderstood your original statement on the "remaining after preorders," I thought you had said you had 14 in addition to those already spoken of. Sounding more and more every day like I better place that UL Anduril order.

    Cheers.

    We did think we were going to have about that many left over. However after we have had to replace a few for various reasons out of the hundreds shiped we had to replace some for damage
    during shiping, material deffects etc. So as we get close to the end it appears we will not have as many left as thought. I will keep you all posted o this as we approach a more accurate count.

    Just curious......will UC 'rebuild' those damaged in shipping, or defective?

    Or will those #s out of the 5,000 just be lost?

    CoD brings up a good point there, what is going to happen to the damaged andurils?
    Is that it? misfortune of a few of the 5000?

    Items that with deffects are normally returned to UC for a replacment. Anduril's will not work that way because there are no more to replace them with. All we can do is ask the customer to return the swords and they will get a refund. And Steve Brown will not sell any of the damaged ones. We only have acouple of those and we have them as display swords in our brick and mortor store. They are good for carrying around and getting banged up and scratched at shows and displays we do during the year. Some are sold as seconds at our store at reduced prices. But Steve wil not ship seconds to customers online... so please dont ask.

    Makes sense, so you can probably guess around 100 or so may have been damaged.

    I just hope that im somewhere at the very top of that list.

    Nope... haha. Still waiting. Give it a few days, Im sure they are making sure all of the pre-orders are sent out first before they start with the 6 or so.

    I'm crossing my fingers on this one. The e-tailer from whom I bought my Anduril was a bit overdue. A call to him revealed that two of the twenty swords he received had flaking gold paint on the runes and that he sent them back. I wonder what happened to them?
