Steve, it's funny how things work out.
I called Bill B, first thing. Well actually thats a lie. I called Stan, first thing. He has a Jolley knife. One only, and it was priced outrageously high. I don't think he really wanted to sell it.
So then I'd heard about Bill B in Bend OR. Phoned him and talked a bit. He replyed, "send me a few dollars for a catalog and I'll mail it out". I did, two weeks later, it came back in the mail with a note attached. "I'm sorry to report that I'm not taking any new customers until further notice. I'm behind now and can't keep up"
I then remembered that someone here said that Big Sky sold his knives. So I phoned them, doubting the whole time because they're in such high demand. Well it turns out Big Sky had 4 left in stock. They faxed me the patterns and I purchased 3 of them. The nice person on the phone said "We have along waiting list, I think his health is failing him". So thats the other reason I purchased 3 rather than 1. Because I may not ever get another chance to. I suspect they'll be here in a couple weeks time. A new knife is like a new toy around here.
