    The knives have been shipping for several months, they are just slow to make
    and VERY backordered. The demand has just overwhelemed what can be produced,
    even with United Cutlery's increased production put in place in February. It is just a
    popular product and will take a long time to get caught up.

    I got mine really early, & there weren't any defects. Well I guess you could say the box art was a defect, but the knives are awessome

    Nice to hear that everyone else is getting their knives. I've just posted a few pics of mine in the Gallery

    http://gallery.fantasyvault.net/showphoto.php?photo=1061

    Sorry to all those who haven't got their's but I thought I'd better upload the photos while I could

    ... and before anyone asks, it's a reindeer hide!

    great pictures, Aini! I love the detailing on the blade. And I really don't mind, maybe even like, the colour of the handles. It seems to suit them well. And the pic of Hadhafang was an added bonus, thanks!

    The knives are calling to me....
    must have them, preciousssss.
    if I only had the money....:(

    Nice pics Aini :) btw, your name don't happen to be Helen? (tried to solve your tatoo :) )

    edit: heh, damn, thought it was the Sindarin letters, that's why I thought it said Helen (HLN)

    Yep - I'm a Helen - it's the Sindarin spelling because in English (like Sindarin) most words end in a consonant so the vowel tehta thingy goes over the following consonant (in Quenya it goes over the preceeding consonant)

    Glad you all like my knives!!!

    Yahooo, my knives have arrived, very nice I must say, so light in the hands, I'm not worried about the handles colour as they will match the brass on the scabbards.

    The sacabard trim is gold plated not brass.

    Ooops yes you are right, sorry about that, was in a rush and got a bit excited in the moment of opening the box and laying my hands on these beauties hehe.

    Thanks Oropher, yeah I actually like the colour of my handles. Congratulations to you as well!! Enjoy.

    Can someone measure the height of the knives when on the plaque on the wall? Like while they are crossed, what is the distance (straight up and down) from the handle to the blade. I need to know because i have a space above my Aragorn Knive and i need to know if they will fit or if my knive will need to lowered before my knives arive. Thanks to anyone that can help.
