All GEC has to say is "Whittler", and that gets my attention :) This pattern looks a little similar to the #62 Courthouse Whittler which I have been looking for.

The Whittler and the Speaker Jack will both be two spring knives.  The Single blade Clerk will be…a single spring.   The single blade Clerk will have the laser engraving as shown in the GEC mock up.  Handle colors haven’t been determined yet.

I have no idea and I wont be able to make it, so it comes to you to let us know on day one Dan!!  (pretty please)

It's almost Rendezvous time!

Which means time for me to look up how to spell the word.

And also time to contemplate what the 10th Anniversary Rendezvous Knife will be! The 5th Anniversary Rendezvous brought us the Whaler. How will the wizards at GEC top that?

Any one in the know going to drop a hint?

Contact info follows.

   I stopped at Village Knives after visiting the Keystone Knife show in Lewisburg, Pa in Feb this year (2016).

   The the show and a stop afterwards at the Pennsylvania Dutch Country which is a few hours away was a great off season inexpensive vacation. Off season hotel prices were way below what we have in New England.

Paul Satkowski,

Where in Pa Dutch Country is Village Knives? Do they have a website? I have heard of County Knives in Intercourse Pa.

I like the look of knives with handles made of quality rare wood. My EDC is a Case with what I believe is chestnut.

Rare Woods USA is an extremely large importer of rare woods in Mexico, Maine (town in Maine USA) that stocks three kinds of Ebony (all are available in stock):

Ebony Macassar-Having a variegated stripy figure, this wood is highly sought after for decorative purposes. Good for turnery, knife handles, and musical instrument fingerboards. Extremely rare.

EbonyAfrican-This timber has very high bending and crushing strength, with high stiffness and resistance to shock loads. This is a very hard wood to work with hand or machine tools, with severe blunting effect on cutting edges. Gluing is good, and it can be polished to an excellent finish. Uses-Tool, cutlery and knife handles, piano and organ keys

Ebony Indian-Extremely dense and heavy which makes it difficult to work, but beautiful to turn. Almost pitch black, this is the wood formerly used for piano keys. Turns and carves well with sharp tools. Used for decorative purposes, knife handles and musical  instrument fingerboards.

Rare Woods USA has any wood a knife maker could imagine. They have 500,000 bd ft of exotic hardwoods.  They have specialty areas such as a music room that supplies wood used in music. I have been there.  

    The info supplied is from The Rare woods web site.
