    Why can't they make a Bamford?. I was actually going to change my order to the Bamford; you wizard!

    Well, that's the brilliant bit. They won't tell you, perhaps because they're E G after all.....they just say technical difficulties. This is after all, a model they've made for years...so what went wrong all of a sudden. I was pretty gobsmacked as I can't think of one good reason. If they tell you, let us know.

    Nick is the absolute best at MTO.
    I am looking forward to dealing with Leaves in the future as well.
    I’ve recently worked directly with Riccardo Bestteti and he is a delight. He is very thorough and accommodating.

    The Bamford MTO is monopolized by a certain US vendor by contract, my left foot!

    That explains why they couldn't make that particular model. I had a similar experience with them albeit not the Bamford to which they replied that that was a Leffot exclusive design.

    What 'Technical difficulties?' You have leather, thread, glue, plastic pre-manufactured last, BOOM! you have a BAMFORD (16 weeks later, that is)

    Wait, wasn't the Bamford an EG for RLPL model? Why would it be exclusive to Leffot? Or am I thinking about a totally different model...?

    I wanted to ask them 'did you forget how to make it?' But I was stunned by their ineptitude (telling me this six weeks or so after taking my deposit), so I just asked for a refund.

    Having said that, I think anyone who buys EG from SKAB will have a good experience. Those guys are 100% reliable.
