Well I got my silvertips in the other day. It was much anticipated but they are finally here fresh from a badger in China.
The first picture is my portion of the order (I went in with another guy). 21 heads in total one of them being "extra special".
The second picture is of the heads. The line up from left to right. 25 mm knot silvertip (10 total), 30 mm knot silvertip (10 total), 28 mm knot special. The third one is a sample, 1 of 100 that my partner was able to procure through a friend. There were 100 samples made of the 28 mm knot and 100 of a 22 mm knot. The 22 mm were kept by the original owner and my partner purchased the 100 28 mm knot heads from him. They are special because they are overstuffed. They were speced out and ordered from a manufacturer in China specifically for this guy. He had to agree to purchase 1500 of the preffered head to get this special order.
I will start production (in my small basement woodshop) soon. I am now waiting for my order of special wood (stabalized to withstand water) to come in. Probably wouldn't get much done this weekend anyway since there is a woodworking show in town that I am going to attend.
