    Checking to see if anyone knows when this happened. I didn't notice of course until after I sent $250 via their site to order the LCG conversion kit with motor/esc until I sent a follow up email a couple days later to get an autoresponder saying they are closed indefinitely.

    Then I went to the site's home page, which looked fine, then checked the contact page and it has this at the top:
    Kershaw Designs will be closed indefinitely due to a medical emergency.

    They should have put that at the top of their home page. This was the autoresponder to my email:
    Wish I had seen that before I placed my order. Now I have $250 in limbo. Now I don't know if/how to cancel the order then go with a different company for the conversion. I really wanted to get my savage converted!

    Unfortunate news for sure, Kershaw makes some pretty impressive stuff. Hope whatever is taking him away gets better soon.

    Hopefully things come out ok. Would be a big loss if Kershaw went away.

    I was close to picking stuff up for my conversion as well...

    I called that this weekend, it's on the google listing for the store. It went to voicemail. At the end of the message, it said something along the lines of "this number is for the actual store, not online purchases. For online purchases, please send an email to...". I sent an email to the email that was from the paypal receipt and now to that email.

    I put in a claim with paypal, then apparently KD gave me a refund when paypal contacted them.

    Glad I got my $ back pretty painlessly. Still bummed I couldn't get the KD kit. I hope everything works out ok for the guy.

    Now I have to figure out if I want to put $350-$400 into converting it using savage flux parts... I really don't want the long chassis version, but seems a bit tougher to find the short chassis bits.

    Apparently Dan is down with medical issues as yet unknown, but RC Basement is doing auctions/sales of much of his inventory...
    I wish Dan all the best in this stressful time and hope for a speedy recovery from this issue....
