"J.J., Right there with you on the poor and old. Wasn't trying to sound fancy by any means, but rather just a bit lazy. Started thinking momentarily that since I like the shorter varieties of whittling knives (for safety) that I could probably…"

"J.J. I appreciated your posts and link to the carver's blog and supplies. I'm still looking for more knives that are a good fit for what I do. Have looked at some el cheapo knives for modding and some ready made customs. I'm on a…"

"Floyd, yessir, it took me a bit to learn but I now endorse short blades! I've had 2-3 "matrix moments" where I was sure that I cut myself only to look and find no damage. Do have a few paper cuts where the blade just…"

"Lewis & J.J., Thank you both for your responses. I've been alternating between an old Heinr. Boker congress that I picked up used who's former owner was either a whittler or a grinder saleman. The steel on that thing seems to bite and…"

Tom Peterson replied to Tim's discussion What GEC is your current carry? in the group Great Eastern Cutlery hosted by Ken Mundhenk
"I wish that I'd gotten on board with the Northwood Scagel's by GEC a little earlier. They seemed pricey at the time, lol, but not by today's stds. I've got maybe 3-4 of the 62's but this is the only EDC one. I don't…"

Tom Peterson replied to Tim's discussion What GEC is your current carry? in the group Great Eastern Cutlery hosted by Ken Mundhenk
"My EDC roll of GEC's. The 25 jack w/ the black finish, the 72 clip and the 48 get the most pocket time but the 12, 73, 23 and 62 get some too. I tend to carry more than one so when I carry the 23 I have to go light w/ the others."

Tom Peterson replied to Tim's discussion What GEC is your current carry? in the group Great Eastern Cutlery hosted by Ken Mundhenk
"Nice additions Tim! My personal choice would be the bottom knife although they are both awesome. I'm a fan of the bottom knife's jigging more like the old peach seed jigging found on an old Schrade and on an old Ulster stockman…"

Tom Peterson commented on allanm's group Tools for knife enthusiasts
"Hey Jan, I was just poking fun at you because in your original post you typed that the grinder was "meant to least". But like most of my attempts at humor it went unnoticed, lol. As far as the table goes, you just rationalize that with all…"

"Hey Miss Jan, I will check out Pheers. But I'd rather have one that's meant to last, lol! The only portaband table that I even know of is on the 4x4 Off Road site that I posted about awhile back. It was about $130+/- but also seemed pretty…"

Sorry for the confusion, the dagger is a Sheffield made English one. As to the push knife that is my holy grail knife. I have seen a couple here in the uk, in a couple of different styles. They are very hard to come by, and are big bucks. Your not getting much change out of 600- 800 dollars, if you can find one. Thanks for the  info the reference books.

Tom,

I am so sorry you have not been well!  I hope your getting better.  Donnie has been working on the house up here a little and forging a little, more now that the weather is cooling off.  The hammer in is this weekend so he is happy as a hog!  I am getting a little stronger but taking more pills than I would like.  Catch 22, dont take them, make no progress getting stronger, do take them make more progress but need to rest more often LOL.  The migraines are not easing off any but I have a great Dr now and she is trying to get the meds with just the right balance that I can have my life back.  Donnie reminds me often not to trip over anything LOL!  Hope to hear from you a little more often, let me know your doing ok please
