This is great Jan.  I love these pins...as well as the knife.

Comment by Jan Carter 21 hours ago

We bought the pins from Greg at TSA Knives, he did a WWP donation from the purchases.

It fits in my hand, normal size hand, just great. The corners are not sharp Graeme.  Great knife.  You will not be disappointed if you buy one.

How is it in hand?  I worried that the sharp corners on the end might be uncomfortable.  I find that the 99 which is a smaller knife is not so great in hand due to the corners.

Thank you guys.  I highly suggest you buy one as well.  I thinking of buying one for carry....maybe one with a different color handles.

you know I have to say, that knife, just judging from the pictures, just looks perfect. The pics just give you that feeling of a truly special knife. And it is what you expect when you get a GEC knife.  Makes me want to get one too!

Wow! She's a beaut, Clint!

And I can certainly relate to everything you've posted. I have some beautiful knives that I haven't even seen in years because they were just too beautiful to carry and--horror of horrors--run the risk of getting scuffed up. So they ended up hidden away in a tube or a box, locked up in a safe or a drawer.

'tis a dilemma, fersure!

Thanks for sharing your "newest" best friend. If you're anything like me you'll have another newest bestie before too long. Us Knife Knuts are fickle that way.

This is my new #63 Tidioute Cutlery Mako Pocket Knive in Gabon Ebony.  When I opened the package and removed the iconic tube, I paused for a moment with a fleeting thought.  "Don't open it just put it away with the many other GEC".  I then started chuckle.  "Yea...sure."  I pulled and removed the plug marked 631115Gabon Ebony.  I removed the protective wax-paper containing the GEC knife.  I rolled the paper open and revealed my purchase.

I examined this knife very closely.  I look for a flaw no matter how miniscule but I found none.  This knife is a work of art and a first rate example of American Craftsmanship.  The blade is crisp and with plenty of snap when opening and closing.  This is one beautiful knife.

As I held my new best friend in my hand, I was envisioning how much I would be carrying this knife and how it will nicely fit in my jean pocket.  The longer I looked at this beauty I had a thought creep into my mind.  "This is too beautiful to carry and use.  Are nuts?"

So I rolled this knife back into the wax-paper cover and slid it back into the iconic tube and pushed in the white plug and set it on my desk to admire and tempt myself to revisit my new best friend.
