    Traditional

    When I think of traditional, I think generation after generation. 1960 is referenced in the Guidelines of this sub forum since knives had been made in a similar way for generations leading up to that time. Post war mechanization changed the way many things were made after that. The modern...

    Attention Q and A re: the BF Spring Street Barlow!! Read carefully!

    Red and brown were neck and neck. So were hemlock and copperhead. Either vote could have gone either way, and, in the end we wound up with something that seemed to appeal to many brown AND red voters. The color question was pretty thoroughly hashed out in the polling thread. It would be...

    What "Traditional Knife" are ya totin' today?

    I’m also a few days behind… Not sure if someone else has answered you, but the GEC branded line uses only materials from the U.S. ie. North American cattle bone. American elk., American Hardwood The Northfield and Tidioute branded knives use a wider range of materials. So you will only find the...

    Poll: When did you get your first GEC?

    By “most recent run,” are you referring to caplifters, or beer scouts? The caplifters on the #85 are not as good as the caplifters on the #15, in my opinion.

    Lets talk GEC!

    Many have successfully done as Markeologist has instructed. One thing to be aware of, though, is that removing the bail voids the warranty, if that’s something that would bother you.

    It’s the browns who were “duped…” Kidding! Kidding! The best color won! :thumbsup: It’s just as I pictured it, and the light sawcut is going to break in great!

    Poll: When did you get your first GEC?

    Some of the reasons it’s gotten so crazy: - No other American company is making production knives in the quality of GEC. - They use old machines, and only make small batches. - No stock = more demand and curiosity. - Prospectors buy up stock and sell at markup. - Less stock = even more...

    Attention Q and A re: the BF Spring Street Barlow!! Read carefully!

    Very sad that he is out of business. That was a fun year, picking out all the pieces of that knife. Lots of polls, lots of excitement! Stephen seemed to have a great time putting it all together…and then took a lot of grief after delivery for the way the knife turned out…

    Poll: When did you get your first GEC?

    I had been eyeing them for years, but finally bought my first GEC just before my first child was born in 2012 - an Elk 48, just chillin’ there, individually photographed, at the dealer... At the time, I thought it might be my last knife ever! 😆 GEC 488112
