    Default ISO: Elymwold forks

    After missing two awesome ones on the boards recently, I realized that I have been passively looking for an Elymwold fork or two for a couple years now with no luck.
    I had, I think, 8 of his forks at one point, but traded or sold all of them off before Nigel stopped making them, thinking I could always buy more.

    So, I have decided to be more aggressive in my search. I am actively looking if anyone is thinking of selling! Also open to trades.

    I have one of their forks that I really love, but is much too big for my little bundle of fine hair. It's a somewhat blond wood with a lavender topper that's attached via a sort of puzzle-piece design. If it's of interest, I'll photograph it and we can talk.

    I am very interested, in fact I can picture the one you're describing. Will pm now, as I know you prefer email. No pressure.

    Wow! I was just thinking of making an ISO Elymwold thread after yesterday. Great minds think alike . I've never had one, and I've been looking since before I joined. If anyone seeing this has one, and Calaen's works out and she's happy, let me know!! I would love to own something so beautiful.

    (sorry for the thread hijack Calaen, I'm happy to sit here parasiting off anything you turn down, or I can make my own thread if you prefer)

    I am more than happy for you to sit in on my thread, and have a chance at my leavings. I have only had the one offer so far, and if the price is right would be purchasing. After that I am wanting one with a dark wood body and a dyed burl or iridescent wood topper, as the one I have been contacted about has an acrylic topper and light body, which isn't my most coveted. I will then be done with my search unless one of the Gothic style surfboard shaped ones miraculously get offered..lol.

    We didn't, that's why we both wanted to make an ISO thread. These forks go so dang fast!

    I saw Hele's on time, but I fell in love with the most beautiful TT... So I left the fork, wasn't my style either (plus I'm broke after Christmas). I love Elymwold forks in general but I'm in a hairtoy time out for some time, so I'll be spying whatever you get In some months I might also start looking for a long one too, meanwhile I'll just stalk
