I appreciate that guys. Now its time to take my medicine.
Manufacturing told me last week blades had shipped and I would get them by Monday. Checked and am now told they haven't been shipped yet. HOT to say the least. Work hard to tell guys straight, and I don't take kindly to passing on word that turns out to be false.
Am now told they will ship to me Express Friday. Hope I can get them to guys next week, will update in the next few days as soon as possible for EXACT and TRUE shipping info.
I had a bit of a surprise I was waiting to spring, but will do it now. The deal is Tricks have been made in the US, as is certainly my preference, but frankly the source I had here was the best I could find, and they couldn't meet the supply and hadn't had consistent sharpness of late. I simply had no other option here.
So what I did, was to get the best blades I knew how to get, which is to say they are being manufactured in Solingen Germany, famous for blades and knives. So for those who I told I was confident of sharpness, that was my little secret.
Problem is, they have taken longer to tool and get to me than planned, as you well know. But good things come to those who wait, and I will post asap when I hear more about shipping.
If anybody is disgusted with waiting, I couldn't understand more, and anybody wants a refund just holler, and once again I apologize, THANKS GARY
