The devs have received the Pyras and the case has been finalized and I need to find a date to go to Greece to check them.

I've already written last time that the Pyras will be sent tomorrow...?
So what use would it have to post that they have been shipped?

That post is about 2,5 weeks old, which is nowhere near a month. And azouls have kept you updated with news about the case in the other thread as well (just not with the final button design, but I an send some pictures from there).

The only real news I haven't posted yet is that I've had a meeting with Global Components as we're now actively preparing the mass production.

So I'm not sure what you're complaining about, there has been a regular flow of news, just not new threads about it :)

Not exactly complaining about anything specific, just saying that would be great to have a little more information in less time as you stated some time ago. Sorry to be "that" guy, but I think it's a need.

Ein Moment bitte, ihr bereitet die Massenproduktion vor??
Das ist doch eine super tolle Neuigkeit

Ich habe von der Pandora gelernt das Release ist wenn ich das Paket mit deinem Absender mit meinem Schweizer Messer öffne ..
Aber der Zeitpunkt rückt näher ^^

One Moment please: you prepare mass production??
That’s awesome news

I have the experience from Pandora
Release is when I receive your Package and open it whit my Swiss Army Knife
So it’s not that far away now

And what information would that be?

'I'll ship the units to the devs tomorrow'.
'Units have been shipped.'
'According to the delivery service, the units should arrive there soon'.

Anything significant will be posted here. It might take a few days (until I find the time), but it will be posted.
Do you really want to be spammed with insignificant news?

Yep, but that was two days ago, so I didn't find the time to make a news post about that now.

It’s alowed as long it’s not one hand open,
Even One Hand Open Blades are allowed if you have a comon reason:
If you need it for work, you are allowed to carry it to or from work

It’s also not illegal to use or to own, it’s could bring you some trouble to carry a One Hand Open Lockable Knive or a Fixed over 12 cm..
I ditnt had any trouble yet whit my Leathermans as I look pretty unguilty (I am a pretty nice person) , but I only dit carry it on less city places, maybe in Berlin, Munich, Cologne, or something, the Police, or others aren’t that cool as they in more rural Places

Do they have a keyboard between the knives and scissors? ;) (attempt at sudden kb thread)
but I think it's a need
We can revive the pre-order thread and EXTRA-polate preorder information, like with math and such?
If you want to worry, the Deutsche Bank drops below €6.00 for the first time ever. If it falls, Europe falls. Prices go up.

Thought that wasn't allowed here in Germany. ?
If you've been to Bremen before, you might have noticed those yellow signs near the main train station telling you that it is forbidden to carry guns (and other weapons, like these knifes) 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. - similar signs without time restrictions can be found in St. Pauli, Hamburg. :oops:

Somewhere off the coast of the EU
In the UK, you're allowed to carry a folding knife of less than 3 inches long (I assume from tang to tip, not hinge to tip), and current case law suggests that the term 'folding' excludes locking knives, but that definition isn't in statute and could be overturned. Any other knife you need a justifiable reason to be carrying, and 'just in case I need it' doesn't count, but they do allow them as part of ceremonial dress most of the time.

Edit: Sorry I wasn't paying sufficient attention and must have assumed this was the offtopic knife thread. Oh well.

But this Thread is about the new cool stuff that happens yet to the Pyra: like they setting up the Massenproduktion ^^
My other Thread is for Knife Talk..

Wow, I was wondering the past few days if the final molds had arrived and were being shipped, so was also anxious to hear some updates, but "actively preparing the mass production" is far from insignificant news, and much more exciting to hear!

As usual don't fret about keeping us posted, but don't forget that any tidbit is food for the news-hungry horde ;) Any time you spend to post here is much, much appreciated.

Still looking forward to videos / photos of the final prototypes sent to devs... ideally from anyone that receives them and are kind enough to share :D

Good work on the updated site, by the way :)
