    Lets talk GEC!

    Thanks Charlie, this was the first I had heard of you controlling the price. Not alarmist just uninformed... Also I appreciate the huge task that it is and have no objection to any dealer being compensated for it. Consider me fully assured. :)

    Lets talk GEC!

    Question about the upcoming forum knife pricing.... since the distributor is marking up regular releases at 60%+ higher than other dealers (83 bocote for $139 vs $86 elsewhere), is there any guarantee he won't be doing the same to all of us? This has crossed my mind multiple times and I've been...

    Lets talk GEC!

    Why are you so offended at seeing pictures of knives on a forum about knives, whose main content includes pictures of knives? There are a heap of similar complaints from you that I find incredibly tiresome. Perhaps you are the one who needs some new material?

    GEC 38 English Whittler 2021

    I'm with you 100%. That just looks gross to me. Oh well, on to the next pattern I suppose.

    GEC 38 English Whittler 2021

    I do have that going for me. And I scored another one today, so hopefully that one will be better. Here's the top-down.

    GEC 38 English Whittler 2021

    Gotta eat my words here @knifeswapper at least in terms of color. My scales are badly mismatched, with nice deep dark red on the mark side and anemic light brown-ish on the pile. I've see a few examples now of similar mismatched covers and some downright ugly-colored bone. If I keep mine, I'll...

    Let's see your Case knives, old to new.

    Welp, my reminder of why I never buy Case knives sight unseen arrived. Covers are not well matched, and the closing snap is super weak on both. After lots of oil and joint cleaning, it's approaching acceptable for a toothpick pattern... from case... Peened too tight I believe and based on the...

    GEC 38 English Whittler 2021

    Yes, sorry I thought that was assumed. :) I'm a big fan of vintage schrades (though I sadly own few) and this jigging and color just really harkens back to their glory days. In my opinion, of course...

    GEC 38 English Whittler 2021

    That color and jigging on the English Whittler will be referenced for years to come.

    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    Seems like an honest mistake made with the best intentions, I can't believe all the venom here over that. Y'all are acting like Bill called you up and told you he wasn't doing the knife now.... because of how someone paraphrased their interpretation of a PHONE conversation? Everybody needs...

    Let's see your Case knives, old to new.

    Haven't bought a Case knife in forever, but I'm always down for a new (hopefully lucky) fishing knife! (I'll get a real pic when it comes in)

    I'll be happy with whatever blade, covers, stamp, etc. those putting in the effort decide on.

    This shield, upside-down, would be perfect for a GEC coffin jack!

    Lets talk GEC!

    I'd take you up on that if it were a wager. I just don't see GEC making that mistake. Maybe a different mistake, like what they put on there, but I can't see them going out blank.

    They have to be stamping/etching with the Un-X-Ld logo, it looks terrible blank.

    I'd withhold judgment til you see them polished up.
