"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…"

"Doug, 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.…"

"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. #64 NORTHFIELD BABYLON HILL by HERMAN WILLIAMS"

Thank you Ken, I was given a Great Eastern a couple of years ago for Christmas and at that point was not familiar with the brand.  The one I got was a Farm & Field tool and what it lacked in looks it more than made up for in quality.  I use it weekly if not daily for various tasks around my shop, primarily for cutting open FedEx boxes and the like.  Then last year the same person got me a Blade Forums #35 "Double End Harness Jack" Limited Production model.  I must say it's a stunner in burnt orange worm groove bone.  I will admit I tend to look at this one more than I use it.  Prior to getting these, my favorite all-time carry knife was (and still is) my WW2 Camillus Navy knife, one that was a rusted-up, broken-tipped basket case when I got it.  After welding a new tip on it, refinishing the pitted and rusted blade, and oiling it up good, it makes a fine 75-year old daily carry knife.  I was telling somebody else on your page that I ate a thick steak with it just yesterday.  While my favorite knife is the old Camillus (for the same reason you love that one-eyed dog you throw in the truck and take home and feed), the Great Eastern line is my favorite line overall..

Ken,just wanted to let you know that the quality,function,ergonomics and utility value of your Maher and Grosh Gen Custer's Favorite knife is outstanding. As a knife user,not a collector, I have been looking for a larger bladed slipjoint in 1095 steel that has high work-utility value sizing and quality in a still pocket friendly package and I truly think that this knife is a homerun!

Thanks for the add. Don't have any GEC knives (yet), but am hoping for a TC Barlow one of these days, will be watching.

Thank you Ken. I appreciate the hospitality here.

Might take me a while to figure out all the bells & whistles to navigate this place, but I will get there.
