"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…"

"Kenneth,  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…"

"Kenneth, 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…"

"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…"

"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…"

About Me
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!
Interests
Knives, Harley Davidson, Grandkids, reading, sports, Faith and family.
Other Hobbies
My grandkids are a joy to be with! Motorcycle trips are something me and my wife do as often as we can. Still working, but retirement isn't far off.
