    Attention Pick a Color! Any Color!!

    Picked white ivory. Shocked that red is in the lead. Have people forgotten how inconsistent GEC is with red dye?

    Knife you're embarrased to own or admit purchasing?

    I owned a couple of those cheap out the front auto knives. They were complete junk, steel couldn't hold any sort of edge. Ended up breaking them and throwing them in the trash.

    2021 GEC 83 Tascosa Lock Back

    Not sure about the previous 83 run, but it seems common for GEC lock backs to have the gap. My GEC 72 has it.

    2021 GEC 83 Tascosa Lock Back

    Slight up/down play, not much. Fit is a solid snap. Lock bar sits higher than the blade spine.

    Are matching scales important to you?

    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    A lot of the allure has to do with the hype of the knife. People want to get their hands on one to see if it's as good as people say it is.
