Great info, thank you.

When I ordered my NH w/a flatware, it came with a FLGR. Silly me didn't ask. Looks like I have a call to make and some money to shell out - I much prefer the GI guide rod.

WOW.

I believe a new owner stepped in not too long ago.

All good things must come to an end, but their finishes were phenomenal. Very sad, especially as they are local to me.

Two of my all time favorites, in my all time favorite configurations, too.
