"Personally, I think the current GEC #23 knives will quickly rise in value because of limited production caused by the virus. As of last night, I looked on line, there are still some double blades available from dealers at dealer prices. This will…"

"Oh yeah I had the Fire and Ice one too. Double bladed bear trap. Beautiful to look at, but not worth losing a finger to."

"Any of the LLs will be fine for me, I was curious what the mesquite looked like. I know the blue camel is amazing! I've never seen as 23 in that before. I had a white bone one, but it was a bear trap. I'm leaning towards the autumn bone or…"

"Hey Fred Kemp ,That Northfield #23 Pioneer Trapper Antique Autumn Natural bone knife is "SICK" !  I hope I get a thick dark one.   That phat spear blade makes a great chore knife.  Take that yellow polishing cloth…"

"I hate KnivesShipFree .  I begged them to help me obtain the Northwoods #86, #92 and #93 knives. I just wanted one of each.  KnivesShipsFree holds back some of their SFO knives and they will release those at higher prices with newer…"

"I have two #23s in my possession .  I have three more #23s in the mail to me now.  I have an Allegheny Mountain Club Knife, that should be shipped next week. I have all four #23LLs on pre-order.  Maybe I will receive the two SFO #23LL…"

"The CKs SFO #23LL Mesquite wood pre-orders sold out in 10 minutes.  You can buy one from an Evil-bay flipper for $200 to $300 if you like being a sucker.  Why do that when you can  buy 2 to almost 3 knives for the same money. …"

"Congrats! Well I signed up at Frank's and Knives Ship Free, so hopefully will get some notification. Both have double bladed varieties available and that beaver tail is looking really good to me. Does anyone have a photo of mesquite scales? If…"

"UPDATE! At approx. 5:30pm CST, Frank's sent me a purchase invoice for the GEC 235220 Exotic India Jigged Bone Trapper SFO, which I immediately paid for. (ALLLL RIGGHHHTTT!!!!!!!) Since my post 1 hour ago, I had given up on this knife."
Friday
Fred Kemp commented on Ken Mundhenk's group Great Eastern Cutlery hosted by Ken Mundhenk
"Yes, Richard, they are double bladed. You bring up some great points. It does seem to be difficult right now to get these great knives. I think limits of production is most of the cause for availability. (However, in pre-Covid times I have had…"

Richard Schuchman commented on Ken Mundhenk's group Great Eastern Cutlery hosted by Ken Mundhenk
"Those look great! Are they the double bladed ones? I'd love to get one of the single bladed ones but just discovering now how you have to consult the GEC ouija board to find out what's being released before it's a gleam in a knife…"

"Makes total sense to me. I mean the SFO's are certainly a cool collector aspect but that stuff has to be a logistics nightmare from a production standpoint and if it's watering down/ hindering the GEC brand itself by consuming material…"

Thanks! Also, is there a way to directly reply to comments on here? Lol I'm new and couldn't figure out how to reply to your greeting on the GEC group.

Thanks Ken, don't have a lot of GEC's but have a couple. I certainly enjoy them and enjoy whittling.

Thanks Ken for the welcome. I am new to the more traditional knives collecting, but man those GEC patterns and builds look awesome. I can not wait to get my hands on some. Thanks

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..
