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.
