Greg just posted that he found a stash of early GEC protos!!!  Prices look very reasonable to me

I'm looking for a GEC Tidioute #651112 LB in Spring Green jig bone. This is the clip blade lockback. If anyone has a line on one, I'd appreciate a heads up.

I happened to be in the neighborhood of GEC today so I stopped by to visit with Mr. Howard and Ms. Tucker and browse a bit. We had a nice discussion on my favorite handle material and the future of it. He showed me some of the stag hunks that they start with. Snapped a couple pics and bagged a couple fine pieces of cutlery and got back on the road.

The rehandles all look great.  Your correct that he still does stunning work.  Not being an acrylic fan, for the most part, I can understand having them changed out.  When Donnie collected seahorses we did the same thing.  The G10 did nothing for me but the rams horn replacement did LOL.

Good work on making your collections what you want it to be !

That's impressive at age 80. It's great that he is still pursuing a passion though.

I"ll be blessed just to bend over & tie my shoes at that age.

Thanks Tim, Herman has been a huge influence on my knife collection. It's just boggles my mind that at 80 he is still turning out work like this.

Wow, that's some nice file work.

Comment by Doug Webber on March 30, 2017 at 15:32

I posted some pics but thought I'd put them here as well. I had 3 Ben Hogans that I thought could be improved. The Primitive bone was not to my liking at all...If If it's not going to be dyed them I like it bleached. The Black Gold was just to dark of an acrylic...didn't set it of in my display at all and it had a spear blade. Nothing wrong with sear blades, just don't like them on my Ben Hogans...I already had one and that's enough. The Red River acrylic was too dark as well. These 3 knives fell into that group of not really knowing if you'll like them until you get to hold them. I sent them to Herman Williams to be re-handled. Plus a little file work on one.
