The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Just joined the group and look forward to learning from the wealth of knowledge and experience here. Thanks - Rick
Yes, yes I would love to regain some of the knives I sold in past. A Linder PPP Kris Bld. Dagger with bone handle for instance.
Glad to have join the GEC fight ! "GEC KNIFE COLLECTING IN WAR !"
The GEC knives this year and last year , have been so superb. In 2018 , I bought two GEC knives on Evil-bay. A super rare GEC#48 mini slim trapper Blueberry jigged bone 1 of 20. And a GEC#65 Autumn Gold jigged bone Ben Hogan 1 of 35. I had a rough time buying GEC knives in 2018. I got duped on the #85 run messing with the wrong GEC dealer. I buy from GEC dealers only. I hate the flippers on Evil-bay and the state taxes. Great Eastern Cutlery took a big unnecessary hit from evil Governor Tom Wolf this year. I am buying as many GEC knives as I can afford. I have never sold or traded a knife in my life. We can not let Great Eastern Cutlery or the GEC dealers go down with out a fight. Bill Howard is kind of an old ball. Bill Howard knows what he is doing and he is a fighter. The slaughter of the American dollar and lower counts on new knives, have driven prices and the demands up. I wanted to buy some custom knives , but the quality and the GEC scale choices have really improved. The best GEC knives are yet to come. I was hoping to get my GEC collection to 90 pieces this year. I just counted 110 , plus a GEC Sabre Clip Cougar Clawed fixed blade knife. Yes , I went fool this year. There is no such thing as a perfect knife , but it don't hurt to try.
Hey Rick , You have to watch the GEC web-sight every day. When I spot a new GEC run schedule, I contact Blue Creek Cutlery and/or JSR Sports & More for preordering. Kifer Cutlery stopped with pre-orders. Mr. Kifer hold/sold me a Kifer SFO Dark Blue Camel bone GEC#23LL Pioneer Trapper this year. It don't hurt to bug them. As soon as I send off my emails. I will be right here on iKC and tell everybody. Any new GEC news , I am right here. I bought seven 2020 GEC#74 Mustangs . Three Arizona ironwood knives and an AAPK club knife. I stink at buying GEC knives. I have one arm and I can sit on my old wore out computer all day. When my folks send me up the street to buy living supplies , that is when the drops hit. "Every time !" I play with and use every knife that I own. I have seen two NOS GEC Snakewood knives on Evil-bay with rust. "Hawaii" Pop that tube and oil/clean that knife. Buffing Compound Carbon and humidity will kill a knife. I use Clenzol oil , Ballistol "stinks", and Lucas Extreme machine gun oil. I have Quick Release oil coming in the mail soon. I use Brownells needle oilers. I have to tiny pump the thick Lucas oil, but it takes so little. I love the smell of Lucas Oil on my knives. I like square and round gun patches. I use antique pin knives to slide the patches in the liner tracks. I learn new things when I clean my knives. "Oil the joints !" It keeps my mind off of phantom pain too.
