Dustin,

Thanks for mentioning it. I'm forwarding to Kyle and he'll get right back to you.

Sorry to barge in off topic! I placed an order about two weeks ago for the new arms and have yet to be charged for them or hear anything about it. I have placed two phone calls along with an email over the past week inquiring about the status and have yet to hear anything back from anyone which I feel is quite uncommon. Did anyone else run into similar problems? Maybe I need to be more patient?

Ordered mine 8/24 and still waiting without word. I hope that the recent shipment of the new arms were flawless and that there are enough to cover existing orders. I may have to call to verify that everything is on schedule and okay. It would be nice to get an email assuring me, (us) that they are on target for delayed deliveries. I'm not very good at waiting, I have a Amazon Prime membership and I am spoiled by free 2nd day delivery and overnight for $4 and they seem to have everything in stock when it is for sale.

I too have an ebay and Amazon account Scott, but here we are dealing with a singular rig which is constantly evolving. The two giants mentioned have huge staffs of buyers and millions of dollars backing up their enterprise...the WE is a small but growing business in a highly specialized field and has no huge staff of buyers and a back-room full of engineers and machinists cranking out their stuff. There is Clay who listens to his customers and is constantly trying to evolve the perfection everyone wants and betimes he is run ragged doing research and development, finding machinists who are capable of doing the work for a price that will not blow the roof off the cost of the WEPS. At the same time he is trying to sell his creation and visit all the knife shows so his work is shown where it counts. On top of all this he has another business and a family to be there for.
Over the two years I have had my WEPS, I found that patience with the development of his fine rig is worth it. He doesn't really need me to be an apologist for him and his businss, but I thought I would throw in my two cents worth. I know how difficult it is to wait, when all you want is to get at the business of sharpening on the finest rig available, but the Chinese have an old proverb that covers the matter nicely I think... Slowly, slowly, catches the monkey! Like all good proverbs it is slightly mysterious but I think the meaning is clear. ;)

Best regards

Scott, I have been waiting for over three months for a Spyderco knife in CTS 204. I paid for it up front. I have got no word since I paid my money. The story is that Spyderco is still working on the temering and machineing processes to get ironed out.
Just as a point of comparison...
As Leao opened up the floor for old sayings... here are a few more:

Five quotes in chronological order:

"Festina lente" ["More haste, less speed"]--Augustus Caesar (1); quoted as a Greek proverb.

"If the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come around to him"--Emerson (2).

"Everything comes if a man will only wait"--Disraeli (3).

"All things come round to him, who will but wait"--Longfellow (4).

  Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
  Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
  I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
  For lo! my own shall come to me--Burroughs (5).

I believe that all of these men had discovered from personal experience that patience is rewarded.

Source(s):
1. Augustus Caesar. From Suetonius, "Augustus," sec. 25
2. Emerson, Ralph Waldo. "The American Scholar." 1837. Sec. 3
3. Disraeli, Benjamin. "Tancred." 1847. Bk. 4, 8
4. Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth. "The Student's Tale." 1863.
5. Burroughs, John. "Waiting." 1876. St. 1

Yahoo answers.

Now doesn't that make you feel better ???
