Oops!

Right hand, #5 metacarpal bone broken. Estimated recovery time at least 8 weeks. The blade is forged and heat treated, but, I have no idea when I can get back to it. My apologies, gentlemen!

Should I withdraw or..?

Man, that is a bummer.  I hope it heals well for you!

The group will have to decide if you should withdraw or not, but I would be happy to trade places with whomever draws your knife and wait until you can finish it.

We have voted before to extend the whole KITH up to 8 weeks before. I see no issue with just letting you finish sometimes before the end of the year. 

I just have fun with the KITH every year, and as such, dont really care about due dates.

Loosely speaking: A group decides on a theme for a knife around the first of the year.  Anyone who wants to makes a knife fitting the theme by the deadline, (which has been around June 30th the last few years) puts their name on the list.  On the agreed upon date, those who managed to finish their knives throw their names in a hat.  One of the admins pulls out names, and you find out who you send your knife to, and who's knife you will receive.

It's all done for fun.

I will suggest that we keep the drawing on the 30th, but allow Mr. Voutilainen time for his hand to heal so he can finish his entry.  If the person who draws JS's knife doesn't want to wait, I'll happily trade places with them.  It is the least I can do for the man who taught me how to forge a puukko, but I bet there are many here who feel the same way.

Doing it this way will allow all of us to get the knives shipped off so they aren't sitting around for two more months.  That being said, I am not at all insistent on this.  Does anyone else want to put forward a suggestion?

That sounds good to me Brian.  This might be a good time to ask, does anyone need an extension to the deadline?

i must say this kith is low on progress, maybe it is a good idea to extend the deadline.

I will have mine ready (I have had quite a tragic and busy spring), but again, I don't exactly care about an extension.

It is usual for most people to not submit photos until the the closing few days, but I agree, we do have a pretty big turn out this year and it would be a shame if a lot of people had to drop out at the last minute because we didnt talk first.

I think I should be able to finish in time, as my knife is forged. However, if more people need an extension, that would work for me too...

Sadly an extension would work for me. I like Francesco have it forged but will probably not have the time to finish before Friday. Trying my best though.

It sounds like an extension is in order.  End of August?  That would give JS time for his busted hand to heal up.

That will work for me. Let's see if JS thinks!

I like the idea of an extension as well.  Hopefully I can make a new blade a throw my name back in.

I could finish mine with a weeks extension, its forged to shape, clean of scale, just needs some fine tuning before heat treat. My new child rotation has wrecked havoc on my work schedules

I'm heading out of town tomorrow for a week, and will have limited forum access.  Before I leave, I'll suggest we set the new (and final) deadline to August 31st.  You all can decide if that is OK, and I'll catch up when I get back in town.

I'm good either way. It's basically done so I can send it or wait. Let me know what you decide.
