Where is a good place to shop for GEC? I'm a huge fan of the Case Slimline trapper (048) pattern and am told GEC's slimline is pattern 048 as well. I've seen some great pics of the GEC slims and…Continue

Case (48) & (07) slimline trapper and mini trapper
Married with 2 sons. I was introduced to knife collecting by my son, who was only 15 at the time, a few years ago. I quickly took a liking to the Case slimline trappers and recently got a taste for the mini trapper styles.
I enjoy looking for older knives now, pre 1980. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and boys, 18 & 16. I like to view mountain scenery and search pawn and antique shops for the "hidden treasures".
