" I get it on the closing, so sad. God willing, this virus will run it's course and the whole world can get back to whatever it is they love to do.
Having said this, I'm on the list for a #23 from Frank's and Collectknives!…"
"I was web surfing the GEC dealer web-sights. My GEC dealer had a Ripe Banana bone #62 Easy Pocket Carver for sale. His last one and the first one that he posted. I went to Yahoo email and I snagged a coupon . I just bought a…"
"The #62 nana camel bone were gone in minutes after listed be the dealers. The classier #62 goldenrod square-bar shield camel bone knives are still available . GEC#23 white bone & Cocobolo Carvers are just been finished up. The…"
"Ken, beautiful knife! If mine looked half that good, I'll be happy. I too like a larger knife, just the way it feels in the hand.
My first two #23's were a single blade that still kills my fingernails and a LL that is a little easier. Both…"
"I contacted Frank's about my interest in one of theirs and I'm on the list at Collector Knives for a 2-blade brown bone. Hopefully the 2-blade will be on the darkish side.
Don't know how Frank's wish list really works, but…"
You mentioned a Chocolate almond handled #86, so I went looking for something similar. Is this photo close, the color that is? It's from another GEC thread and it's really nice. I would definitely like to see more from GEC…"
"I do believe GEC is doing their own dying now. The 2019 #97 maroon micarta knife scales were dark maroon before shaping. GEC showed photos of the lighter maroon scales after mounting. Then GEC posted photos after re-dying. Last…"
I have not spoken with Bill Howard specifically about bone in a couple years. I do know that they were doing their own dying in a room no one was allowed into (rightfully so), even on a private tour.
Many of the early colors and…"
"My #97 Allegheny "Yellow Rose" knife is killer. I just received my #62 Easy Open Congress Goldenrod Camel bone square bar shield replacement today. That goldenrod camel bone looks like an antique glass round marble. I…"
"I certainly would not say pressure Fred but a dealer is only going to be able to stock in one of 2 ways.
The authorized dealer buys direct from GEC which means they buy what the company produces, not necessarily every pattern but a pre…"
"Oh yeah, beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder! I hardly ever buy anything on ebay anymore, but I do look to see kind of what's left over. I liked the wrench shield but wasn't crazy about the patterns. It must be really difficult…"
"I on the other hand love it when they have the odd shields. Camel bone is one of my favorites because I do not care about bookend sets on the scales and smooth bone has always been one that I look for. As long as GEC has been around, the…"
I've been collecting GEC since 2008. The quality is what really impresses me. Usually my EDC line-up is between a Tidioute #53 and a NKCA 1981 Queen equal end knife I picked up on Ebay. The Tidioute has some strong patina, but looks great!
