      WHERE IS MY PAN?!!!111

      Seriously dude, we're going to invent time travel before you get these out, and I am going to take a trip to my past self and slap the shit out of him for telling my wife to invest in this bum of a project.

      I think we already have our answer, Natalie.

      Even the low hanging fruit should have shipped long before now. Anybody heard from the 19 people just waiting on recipe cards? Nope. Not a single happy backer.

      I'm guessing we're never going to see our stuff, guys. I'm also guessing that the reason he hasn't followed up on his initial offer of a refund for those who for some reason aren't happy being jerked around for two years is because he spent all the money long, long ago on non-Kickstarter related things. And that's why everything's taking so long. He's having to scrape up the money he already spent elsewhere to give us what we purchased.

      Maybe I ought to have my friends who attend Otakon, or other cons he does vendor work at, stop by and ask some very specific and pointed questions. Maybe if he's pinned down in person we'll get some real answers.

      Whoa! As I live and breathe, the Web page got updated! Trivets have been put on hold, and "major shift in production schedule" for the rogue handles. (No duh.) Everything else--not started and no estimate for when they'll start (which, sadly, is not a shift in the production schedule at all). No mention of why the continued radio silence on Kickstarter. Maybe that would be a good thing to put on the schedule ... you know ... weekly checkin with the nice people who gave you $40,000, and who now, unreasonably, keep wondering what's going on. Here's what it says:

      Updated: March 13, 2013:
      Major shift in production schedule. Creating mold masters to complete quoting process for sand casting the standard and two handed hilts.
      Currently working on:
      item 1. Rogue milling: Production location NextFab Studio
      item 2. Trivet milling: Production location in house. Alternative mill operator identified. Schedule being negotiated.

      Task Item | Status | Start Date | End Date | Production Min.
      1. | Mill Rogue Handles | In Progress - 75% | Dec. 7, 2013 | TBD | 91
      2. | Mill Trivets Hold - 40% | Nov. 29, 2013 | TBD | 44

      Hey James,
      Time for my weekly check-in.
      I see you logged in today. Any news on the upcoming schedule update you mentioned 3 weeks ago?

      From your pictures in the last update, clearly some work has been done. It's a shame that it isn't reflected in the schedule, because that would definitely make this a smoother ride for everybody.

    10. Missing_small

      Creator Stefan on February 20

      "I will be updating the progress and schedule on the web site next week", 14 days ago.

      James, even if you have a full-time work beside this, 30 minutes of daily thinking/planning for two weeks should be enough to update what you have done so far and what you plan to do next? Also, $46.000 suggest that this should have at least *SOME* priority.

    11. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Lana on February 19

      Even with milling problems all of the Quest Cards and the 5 Trivets should have been done long before now. Any word from any of those backers or have they just been dropped? I would think having 24 happy backers would be a good start. The 18 who were just looking for updates probably won't be good references at this point either.

      OK, James isn't posting updates here on Kickstarter, but he *is* posting updates (well, "update") on that web-page-schedule he posted. Here's his update from yesterday:

      Updated: Dec. 13, 2013:
      Added column to table that displays the total number of items to be produced as the result of the Kickstarer and pre-order. Our pre-order comprises mostly of people who wanted to add additional pans to their kickstarter pledge after the pledge window closed. These numbers are subject to change as people select hilt style.
      Currently working on:
      item 1. Rogue milling: Production location NextFab Studio
      item 2. Triviet milling: Production location in house. Production to continue when Jim returns to this location.

      Task Item - Status - Start Date - End Date - Production Min.
      1. Mill Rogue Handles - In Progress 50% - Dec. 7, 2013 - TBD - 91
      2. Mill Trivets - Hold until Dec. 20, 2013 - Nov. 29, 2013 - TBD - 44

      James, I am really happy you have come back to this project after your little bit of strife (yes, we all have these delays...) and are carrying on with this vision. Ok, so some of the handles may be different from what was first shown.. whatever! Some people will NEVER be happy.... and some people will never take a chance in life and try to do what you and your friends set out to do.... Yes, I was upset too about the delays, but I'm really glad to see you following through!!! Thank you and screw all these other wackos that can't be happy that they will finally get something.... Rock On!

      Well, I see there has been progress...but the picture I received today of the progress looks NOTHING like the video used to entice my backing. I wasn't looking for a "slip on" handle to an existing cast iron handle. The video clearly shows a seamlessly integrated handle. The pan in the video looks AWESOME. The pan in the latest updates looks 'meh'. I wouldn't have backed the latter for sure.....

      My mistake ... the first date on the schedule was November 29, to start milling the trivets. Did that happen? And did the rogue handles get started today? Just curious.

    23. Backer4.small

      Creator GBAllison on December 5

      So today's the date of the first item on the schedule ... Mill Rogue Handles. Is it still on time ... did the materials come in ... or are they still on hold? And once they start, I assume they'll be able to estimate an end date for that task?

      I agree, Gabriel, that its great he's potentially persevering to the end. I'm truly happy he's finally communicating and seems to be moving the right way. I don't agree he's been on the bad end of this situation - we've all been on the bad end, not sure if we didn't continue to bug him, that he would be making pans now. Who knows- put it all behind us and move on, I guess.

    27. Missing_small

      Creator Gabriel on November 28

      James, I don't envy you the past year of being on the bad end of this situation... I think the fact you're still trying to find a way to complete the project tells us you know you've screwed up. That having been said, the ONLY thing that matters as far as I’m concerned is that you eventually complete the project. Kickstarter is littered with late and delayed projects; it’s par for the course, no matter what people say. If you can get the job done over the next few months, then you end up being the guy that screwed us around for some reason, but also the guy who persevered to the bitter end. Best of luck getting there, man.

      I don't want to say anything negative, I really don't.
      BUT, I'm starting to feel a bit of the sting of betrayal.

      Look at it from my perspective, if you would, Mr. Brown:
      You're almost a year behind schedule on a project that I already paid for.
      Yet, you're going to conventions and taking preorders for other pans....
      I dunno, I guess personally my sense of honor would obligate me to deliver what I'd promised/sold BEFORE doing anything else. Anything else is the action of a person without conviction.
      I don't want my money back, I want the pan I paid for.
      The pan I backed YOU to make.
      You got what you asked for, you got the funding you wanted(and more!), and we, the people who lifted you up so you could do this, so far have nothing to show for it.
      Except a sentence or two when you feel so inclined.

      Do you have any sense of pride in what you do?

      I've gotten more updates and feedback on another project I backed for a custom cast-iron griddle, with about as many backers, and the creator passed away a few months after. Seriously, how are we supposed to see this as anything other than a fraud at this point? I almost want to go to Otakon next year just to get the opportunity to come up and ask you in person since we probably won't have the pans by then either.

      Just be aware - your credit card company WILL SAY they can not refund something that long ago, that is WHY you have to say that you paid for it then, but it wasn't set to be delivered until (date with in 90 days of the date you call your credit card company) When they say they can not refund it... that is when you tell them it was do within the last 90 days...

    36. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Joely Polokoff on October 24

      OK, I had a problem with a sock guy last year... this is what you HAVE to do to get a refund... Call your credit card company and let them know that even though you paid for this last year, (December, it was due to be delivered (within 3 months of today's date) I'll say September 15th... then I will tell my credit card company that I never received it on the 15th, and that I e-mailed, emailed again three days later and then a week later, and each week until today. Now I am asking for my money back because i have had no contact with the person. What you NEED to get for your credit card co. The date you paid Amazon and if you paid for another kickstarter the same day, you need to find the exact payment time that you paid fro this one. I did get a credit back the same day (from the sock guy) and Amazon can not stop this refund. Good luck everyone. I am doing this now.

      I've begun and ended a relationship during the elapsed time for this project. My friend has painted and maintained a mansion using exclusively 220 grit sandpaper and her paint in this time. Obviously, James, there has been an issue and you've been unable to keep your end of the bargain. Save some face and tell us, as you should have done a while ago, what the problem is.

      Creator Nathan Domino on October 23

      Sigh, I don't think he can do this project (if he is actually even trying). That money is probably spent long ago, I doubt it is sitting in a bank account waiting to be used once he figures out some sort of CAD program issue. A program that anyone with an engineering background should be able to do/help him with. I know plenty of people who have made way more complex molds for forging items than this in way less time.

      You can find his address simply by searching for morocco enterprises llc. Simple if people want it. I have thought about sending a registered letter, but the cost would just put me in deeper. Given that I only pledged $30, it doesn't seem worth it. I am surprised that the people who have pledged hundreds of dollars are doing more.

      Creator Brad Dancer on October 19

      well, kickstarter got all mad at me last time I posted Morlock Enterprises address (which i found on his website, so not sure why that was a problem). I don't want KS getting all upset again - i know they would rather protect James from actually coming through with his campaign than help us. Still, its time to step this up, KS? No reason you couldn't attempt to reach out to him- you are part of this process as well.

      Any news? Have you finally got a timeline yet, so we have =some= sort of an idea how long it will take to get our pan? Any chance we'll have a pan before the year's over? Are you in production at all yet? It's been way too long since your last update.

      Come on man, respond, you've had plenty of nudges to get your act in gear. Time for an update, time for a timeline, time for delivering something, anything... Or time to admit defeat and give refunds to those who want one. I still want to believe you'll deliver, but you're gonna have to help me keep that faith!

      So what stuff is he selling at cons? Other thing, or anything related to this project? Either way, it's really disturbing that we have funded his "regular business", while the combat kitchenware is going...nowhere.

      Creator Natalie Slaughter on October 7, 2013

      What is the current shipping date for our items? Where are we with production? Can you at least guarantee that they'll arrive less than a full year after the promised time? Also, are you refunding people who have requested refunds? Not gonna lie, upsets me a little bit that you're working hard to churn out all the pieces you sell at cons (I've visited your booth in days of Otakon yore; regretfully, it was your brand name that made me think of this as a reliable venture) while we've still got no substantial updates. Or even an acknowledgement that you know we're asking for dates.
