Makes total sense to me. I mean the SFO's are certainly a cool collector aspect but that stuff has to be a logistics nightmare from a production standpoint and if it's watering down/ hindering the GEC brand itself by consuming material priorities then that's definitely a potential marketing issue in the long run.
I agree. If we go back to the first years of GEC, the handle materials were distinct to that company. No one else was offering Primitive Bone, Bubbinga wood with a Beaver shield, snakewood, the looking glass materials. All of those in 2010 meant Great Eastern, Northfield and Tidioute. So yes, better choices not more grew them, it should be able to sustain them
Beautiful knives for sure.
No more GEC , SFO , Northwoods , Club or Forum SFO knives. The bigger dealers are hogging up the best bone color , saw cut , and wood choices. GEC needs to offer better choices , not more choices. Dealers need to sell out in weeks after release . Bill Howard knows what he is doing . I am supporting GEC the best I can in the future. Please support our iKC dealers.
NO MORE SFO's !
I just received my invoice on the GEC#23 SFO . Mr. Frank picked me out the darkest , thickest , and winter-bottom style jigging in the bunch.
I talked to Mr. Frank , these Exotic India bone knives are sold out and 32 buyers wanted two. I wanted an extra one to remove the main blade for EDC. Everybody gets only one. I bought the last Northfield #Pioneer Trapper Antique Autumn natural bone and I am going to have the main blade removed. The secondary phat beefy spey blade is wonderful for chores. iCK forum supporter : "JSR Sports & More" has the first three #23s in stock right now at the best release date prices. Woodland micarta , Beaver gnawed jigged cherry wood , and Northfield #23 Antique autumn natural bone two blade Jumbo Trappers !
Ken... I love those slabs !
I too am looking forward to the 23 Beaver that should be here any day. I'm a big fan of mid/larger size models and this one fits the bill. I'm really hoping to nab a 23LL soon as that's been on my radar for a long while. Thank you guys for keeping us all updated. Those Woodland Micartas turned out better than I ever imagined..
