"Interesting that with those production numbers secondary market would go high. Possibly because they were bought up so quickly? I wonder how many were bought just for that purpose?

"I already spotted one on Evil-bay. $225 plus shipping One GEC dealer tacks on $5 over the release date price and lets them roll. The real popular knives go up to $25 after that. I have been paying close attention. "
Thank you Ken, I was given a Great Eastern a couple of years ago for Christmas and at that point was not familiar with the brand. The one I got was a Farm & Field tool and what it lacked in looks it more than made up for in quality. I use it weekly if not daily for various tasks around my shop, primarily for cutting open FedEx boxes and the like. Then last year the same person got me a Blade Forums #35 "Double End Harness Jack" Limited Production model. I must say it's a stunner in burnt orange worm groove bone. I will admit I tend to look at this one more than I use it. Prior to getting these, my favorite all-time carry knife was (and still is) my WW2 Camillus Navy knife, one that was a rusted-up, broken-tipped basket case when I got it. After welding a new tip on it, refinishing the pitted and rusted blade, and oiling it up good, it makes a fine 75-year old daily carry knife. I was telling somebody else on your page that I ate a thick steak with it just yesterday. While my favorite knife is the old Camillus (for the same reason you love that one-eyed dog you throw in the truck and take home and feed), the Great Eastern line is my favorite line overall..
