    it would be a lot better.. cause then in the future.. you could attach the quiver on (if it were to be released).. i think it would be really cool.

    i like the 3 line rigging for super secure-ness of the knives(aswell with the quiver)

    Have a quick look at this 'Ask the Swordsmith' thread

    http://www.thefantasyforum.com/showthread.php?t=3956&highlight=legolas+knives+rigging

    Swordsman indicates that BBB are looking to do the whole rigging at some time in the future - but for now scabbards just seems to mean scabbards!

    All this seems very odd ot us because we have not heard the first thing about anything of this sort. As a matter of fact we just got our second shipment of Legolas knives in day before yesterday and are expecting at least two more in less that two weeks. And so far our field representitive has not gave any hint of this kind of problem. I am getting on the horn right now to either varify if this is true or not. An accurazation of this sort is nothing to take lightly and needs to be addresed promptly. If it turns out that it is not true I will deal with this post then.

    I would like to know where it says that UC plans on making the Legolas scabbards with yellow plastic accents? Everything I have seen or heared so far has said that they will have brown leather and brass accents. I would hate to think that UC would go and be cheap by using plastic accents since those could break easy or fade.

    Ok, well like I said thats just what I got from him today. I actually spend 20 miutes on the phone with him. I hope its not all true as a lawsuit would meen not only delays but show something is truley wrong with united and that just cant be good. If it does prove to be nothing I gladly appoligise and will retract my comment.

    I can't believe so many people are still waiting for theirs. It seems like ages since I got mine. How many people who preordered the knives are still waiting?

    I ordered mine back in august from a guy on ebay, he says he hasnt gotten any in yet. I know of a few other people i talk to on forums or messaging programs who are in the same boat. There only seems be a a select few who have gotten theirs. As of the news I know they are supposed to be released in june. But who know.

    I preordered mine on April 13. A bit late. :(

    At this rate I'll get mine while I'm playing HALO 2.

    I got mine last Wednesday after only ordering them in February - I guess I was lucky. Wasn't expecting them with my UK dealer until late July though so was very pleasantly surprised when they turned up!

    Actually not that bothered by the colour of the handles - when you realise they're only actually 1/3 of the length of the whole knife (and the blades of these things are truly beautiful) it's not actually that bad. Plus the dark wood mount takes away some of the 'yellowness' of the colour.

    Did this whole waiting thing happen b4 with the rest of the swords or was it just the recent ones? I can't believe UC is taking soooo long to put these knives out. I'd much rather go "Hey look, i can get so and so's sword, how cool is that." But i'm stuck waiting like the rest.
    Nvr mind, back to my original question. Is this waiting a usual occurrence or has it just been recently?

    No, if you preorder when the sword/knife is still in the works by UC, then the wait is usually longer due to redesigning and problems. Errors have to be worked out to give the consumers a superior product. I rather wait longer than get a defect.
