This is the Auction information that was posted with the knife below.
Up for bid is a 2006 Great Eastern Cutlery Tidioute model #23 Pioneer with diamondback amber jigged bone handles. There were only 110 of this pattern made with this jigged bone in the innaugural year of this fine cutlery. This knife is serial #127 (250 total of this Tidioute pattern made, 110 in diamondback bone). It measures 4 1/2" closed, has flush nickel silver bolsters and pinned "Tidioute" shield, brass liners and pins, and 1095HC carbon steel blades, unused and unsharpened. Both blades have super strong half stops and excellent walk and talk. Any marks on the blades are simply from the factory oil, they're in pristine condition. The bone handles are in excellent condition, no chips or cracks, and done in GEC's own diamondback jigging. The knife has never been used and comes with original tube and wax paper wrap. This knife is one of the first knives made in GEC's first year of production, don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of history! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I am Lost on Great Eastern. I stole the pictures from ebay hoping some of you Collectors would know thw answer.

This knife has the number 127 etched on the Bolster. The blade says 250 made. The seller of this knife said only 110 were made. Now the question. How can this be number 127 if only 110 were made in this Bone Jigging? What are they talking about is 127 the frame number?

Glad you escaped the forest fire, Ken. That could have been bad!

I haven't been very active here lately. We live in Shawnee State Forest in Southern Ohio. Last friday due to windy and dry conditions (with the help of a fire bug) Shawnee Forest had a 3,000 acre forest fire. On saturday we thought we were going to be evacuated. We contacted friends (Roger Cunningham, who happens to be our insurance agent) was more than eager to help us move if the need arose. Luckly we were spared. What a relief. Roger was jumping with joy. It was a long four days and nights. So now I can get active again on the site
