That is a winner! I know your happy to have one, how are you liking the knife itself?
I wondered if I would ever own a GEC stockman pattern knife - especially in Sambar Stag. Today my GEC #66 in Sambar Stag arrived. (Purchased from CollectorKnives.net.) Very happy guy.
Queen Cutlery made folding woodcarving knives for my business. I need to find a new source so if anyone or any company is interested in providing knives, please contact me ASAP.
my favorite knives to collect. especially since i grew up in that area
Well were working on filling page # 3 of knives for sale, new and older :)
Website is up and running, 2 full pages of GEC knives ;)
if I can help anyone with something new or used please let me know
I agree about waiting to see how this bold move plays out. Like you Doug we dont collect for investments LOL, I would have started collecting gold 40 years ago if that was my intent. Your statement that historically they do NOT lose value was a factor in the collectible pieces though. Since what we have are the first 7 years of production and nothing more than a run of 25 we should still be ok on holding value. Heck this move may actually make the value increase
I don't collect for investment reasons but for enjoyment. One thing you could pretty much count on though, was that a GEC knife would hold it's original value and generally increase in value which is a rare thing in today's traditional knife market. With GEC ramping up production numbers, on the new 78's at least, I doubt this will still be true. As long as the quality of their knives does not suffer from this increase in production I will still collect GEC's when a particular model appeals to me, but that thrill of having one of only maybe 50 made will certainly be gone. That in itself will certainly make their knives much less appealing to me as a collector.
Looking at GEC's production totals for last year, it is apparent they are stepping up production of each release. That is a good thing since demand is growing for their product. The numbers seem very high however for the #78 if correct. There are a lot more SFO's going on now too. Just have to wait & see how this all shakes out I guess.
