Jan, do you have a picture of that user Donnie carries?
I love seeing them with a little less blade and some bumps and bruises!

Comment by Jan Carter on Sunday

Johnny,

Greg has an amazing amount of the older GEC's in his store.  Herring bone and Green tea, goodness you are finding some of the rarer beauties.  The 73 was the first pattern we bought from GEC, that same one remains a user for Donnie today, 9 years later.

Derek,

Those old 23's have the toughest backspring I have ever seen.  I have a few I cannot open with out my knife pic.  But when they are open, they are certainly not going to accidentally close on you either

Still waiting on my other #73s to arrive... impatiently I should add.

In the meantime I ordered a 2006 #73 scout from Greg Holmes at TSA knives. It's been shipped and on it's way as of today, so I have something else to be impatient about. It's truly a great pattern and one that is as much apart of GEC's beginning as the tubes themselves.

I am rebuilding my collection and will soon have an original #73 scout from 2006 in Herring bone, also a #73 scout Great Eastern Cutlery brand knife with Green Tea bones scales from 2007.

Still waiting on my Prim #73. All knives will probably end up in the pocket, haha I can't keep them shiny!!!

Some lovely Knives popping up here in the past week or so ... Cannot say I have seen the primitive bone before - But there are so many different handle materials it is hard to keep up. A couple of mine an early (2007) #23 in Smooth Bone beaut knife but needs a 4WD and a tow rope to open it.... and a 2010 #72 in Frontier Bone.

Jan, excellent collection of prim bone!

One of my favorite handle scales every used by GEC. I have a pre loved #73 with Prim bone on the way!

Nice! Great knives.

A 2011 look at some of the primitives.  The collection grew over time to every pattern that has been done in primitive.  More shots of them are in my photos, the early pages
