    Ryan @Sabercat or Charlie @waynorth could one of you be so kind as to send me the contact information for American Whittler? I'd like to get on Roy's email list if possible and I saw an address somewhere that indicated he is (or was) located in my neck of the woods.

  4. My 29 arrived today...

    Very pleased.

  5. #29 on it's maiden voyage today...

    Pretty excited that I've decided to carry ALL of my knives.

    No safe queens for me!

    That's the way I feel about my knives. I want to enjoy them. I am not a collector so I am not going to keep them as safe queens just to keep them nice for somebody else to enjoy.

  7. For sure.

    I've always got a modern folder on my person as well as my Vic Spirit so there's something at hand that I can abuse if necessary!

    But while I'll continue to carry my GEC's in my watch pocket, they'll certainly be babied.

    Nice! I like that polished stag.
    I don't have safe queens, but if I had the funds, I'd buy a few spares. ;)

    Thanks! I really liked the Maher & Grosh SFO. The third implement spay was more useful than the awl to me.
    Should I send it in or just write it off?

  17. I'd send an email with the picture to at least see what they're willing to do.

    That's definitely a bummer on the spring. I would most definitely send that in... it's only a couple months old!

    It isn't any good the way it is. Nothing to lose emailing or calling GEC. They ought to fix that. I've read that it may take a while, but again, its not ever going to be any good the way it is.

    I didn’t pick up any of these when they first came out, but this one made it to me through a trade. I need one of the Maher & Grosh versions next.
