After going through 2 weeks' worth of updates it's safe to say the patient got what they wanted, even if it took many months longer than it should have. If we do anything like this again it won't be a group buy but likely a direct request to the manufacturer to ship to TankGuys for resale there. At least, that's what I'd do, and it's what we do with the Ducky keyboards.

That blade shape wouldn't actually benefit a 38mm thick fan as much as it would a 25mm fan, else those companies would be using it. Blade shape isn't unique to a manufacturer as you may be aware, which is why Delta, San Ace, Sunon, and EBM.Papst use similar designs (save for the monstrous-looking sickle shape Papst uses in some of their newer fans), along with Scythe for the Ultra Kaze, though I'm not sure who the OEM is there.
