Well, I have confirmed that April the 6th will be 'D-day' for last orders on batch 19. And a new timer is up and running to commemmorate it!
If we 'overheat' with a sudden stampede of orders I will hit a kill switch too cool it down for a day or two while I continue to talk to everyone via email as I don't want someone to miss out because they have a lot of questions. So if that happens I'll post here and explain what will happen (as I refuse to take on more orders than the forge can handle).
Batch 18 hasn't quite come in to customs yet and may be a few more days before it hits customs, so I'll post again on this shortly too. Customs usually takes 7 days with our swords and we do have to jump through a few hoops, but we do our best to comply with whatever they need and do not envision any serious delays (it's just a pain - but my agent is gearing up to process them as quickly as possible without missing anything important during the QC checks).
Incredibly busy right now, but as we want to try and get all orders in to the forge as quickly as possible after the 6th please note that the window to make adjustments to existing orders is closing, so if you want to make a change you will need to let me know ASAP. And as paypal echeques take 3-5 working days to clear, at this point I'm afraid that from the time of this post onwards, echeque orders will be refunded once they clear as we cannot afford to hold up the current batch.
Ok, got to go - I'll be in touch again soon!
