With so many new patterns and variations this year, no one has a fav?

LOL,  Jan it's so hard to pick one.   I started out with the 36's .  Then I fell in love with the 73's.  Lots of handle choices,half stops, perfect size.  I just picked up my first 66!  Gunna be a great work knife.  If I had to pick just one pattern it would be the 73!!  

 

LOL, Donnie also is the 73.  My fav is the 66

Okay Jan, if you put a gun to my head an made me choose ,I would say.... wait.... let me think.

 

I have a love for all GEC patterns, but in almost everything there has to be a favorite. Mine, right now, at this very second, would be the #12 Toothpick. Okay, now it's the #73. No, no, wait, the #25.

 

Okay folks, it's too close to call.

 

 

P.S.

Don't tell the others, but it's the #12.

 

 

I think

LOL,

Donnie has the same problem...and so does our Desert Hermit.

Jan, Johnny, you're absolutely right!!

Right this absolute minute I have a #62 Easy Pocket Congress in my pocket, A #65 "Hogan" in a belt pouch on my left hip, and a #72 Mini-Lockback clip blade in another belt pouch on my right hip.  So there's my favorites.....at the moment. 

But not far away, in case the mood changes, are my other favorites.  The #12 Toothpicks, #53 Stockmans, #61 Congress, and an outstanding little #66 Mink Skinner.  Of course, being as they are all " favorites" I have extras or backups for all of them in case I lose one, (which I haven't done in about 60 years......but you never know).

In all honesty, each of my pocket knives are truly my little friends and it's really hard to actually choose one favorite over another.  Besides, each one is specially designed to do certain chores better than others, each one a "Specialist" if you will.  I guess that's why I have three of my friends with me right now.  (Can't have too many friends!!).

And just about the time I have almost convinced myself that I have finally narrowed the field to a couple of real "favorites", along comes GEC with something that upsets the whole cart once again.  We just can't win.

(I'm looking forward to the new #72 Mini-Lockbacks in 440-C blade steel.  That'll be my next "favorite").  Maybe.

Dave, I can't wait for the stainless #72s, I waited on a getting a #72 for some strange reason, but now I know. It's because I NEED a stainless #72. And in Elk Stag, that would go great with my Tpick.

 

Sounds like you have some great favorites my friend. 

Now that would indeed be a real "Favorite". 

A #72 Mini-Lockback with 440-C blade steel and American Elk handles.  I would definetly NEED at least a couple of them!  I think the Elk would make an excellent choice of handle material for that knife.

I have heard GEC will be doing a run of the #72's with 440-C  in both the Clip style blade and the Wharncliffe blade.

I like both styles, so I guess I'll end up with at least one of each. 

I appreciate the extra edge holding the 440-C gives due to the heat treatment at a couple of extra Rc points.  It's a good choice for a working knife, as is the good old 1095.

Dave is right, we can never have too many friend.  The more the merrier
My favorite is a moose pattern, I don't have one like I want but I'll keep trying. A moose is a good outdoorsman pattern and I started getting a few from different brands. The GEC moose that I want is one with primitive bone and they are hard to locate.

Robert,

If I see one around I will let you know.  As you know Primitive is becoming harder and harder to get.  They seem to go fast when they come out.

Maybe a better (or easier to pick) question is what is your top 5 patterns? This is a GEC web site forum question from awhile back. Mine in no real order are #72, #73, #54, #53, #66, #56....Who said that I knew how to count?!
