What was supposed to be a 5-6 week wait to receive my UFO Zeus handle has turned into 11 weeks and counting. Juan told me that the new lead time is 10-12 weeks. At least it's been shipped but the Correos tracking website doesn't update very often.
*with apologies to Tom Petty!

I know it is hard to wait for a gorgeous piece of hardware, but a UFO is definitely worth the wait. They are truly works of art that are also functional tools.

I echo Jeremy's sentiments ...
UFO handles are exquisitely handcrafted by Rafael, and are truly pieces of working art. The time and care involved in making each handle, coupled with the growing demand for them, has undoubtedly resulted in the increased waiting time. They are worth the wait though!

As a matter of interest, which model are you waiting for? I'm VERY tempted to buy one but I cannot choose which one(s) I want.

I'm thinking of a matt SS one and a polished SS one! Oh, the agony of choice!!!

I know what you mean. I am retired and my better half works. That's a pretty good deal. The only potential problem is if something is delivered on a Saturday.

I picked up a UFO Kaiser and love it. Initially I thought it was going to be too long (100 mm) but to me it's a great length. By far the nicest handle I have.

10-12 weeks is ridiculous. I waited about 4-5 for mine and that was plenty.

But patience was never my strong suit in life.
