    Sorry to have to say this:

    These are wonderful knives, no doubt, and I’m sure many of us are champing at the bit to get hold of one. I know I am.

    I’m not sure why one of our hard workin’ mods has to step in three times to remind people of the rules here though?

    There are places on BF you can go to to discuss your issues/frustrations/whatever commercial concerns you have, related to the buying of these knives.

    This is not one of them.

    “We want the forum to focus upon the discussion of traditional knives...not the purchasing process, prices, nor vendors and their websites.”
    -Guidelines for the Trad Forum.

    To those of you who have been posting pics and reviews of these great knives - thanks, and keep ‘em coming!:thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks Charlie. They look to be magnificent embodiments of your vision! Thank you for bringing the Lambsfoot to GEC.

    Every so often my brain cells come to life and a transient thought zips through the maze... I was just thinking what a wonderful positive the Waynorth Lambsfoot is for Buffalo, NY.... I, like Charlie, spent part my childhood in Buffalo, NY... This is back in the era of Wurlitzer Organs, Bell Aircraft and a little earlier Pierce Arrow automobiles.... Buffalo has a lot of wonderful history.... I think 100-200 years from now some history buffs will be examining one of Charlie's knives and wondering where the Waynorth Cutlery factory was located in Buffalo.... It would be interesting to eavesdrop on that conversation!!.... And I'm certain that someday a museum in Buffalo will be displaying one of Charlie's knives....

    I have been wondering something. Is there such a thing as a knife archive? Or put another way, is there such a thing as a general collection of American knives that anyone could schedule a visit to go and see for research purposes? Something more comprehensive than a museum.

    Like the Library of Congress for knives? Cool idea.

    Yeah. Like somewhere that knifemakers and enthusiasts could go to look at designs. GECs and their rarity has made me wonder this. Like, where would knifemakers go if they wanted to look at some of the older models for inspiration?

    EG If you wanted to see a 1st edition of a Kephart book there are plenty of institutions you or anyone could visit but if you wanted to see a 1st Edition of the Colclesser Kephart knife, you're basically out of luck, right?

    Bernard Levine's Guide to Knives and Their Values 4th edition is an excellent reference on knives if you can get one. Not sure if there is as good a reference since the 4th in '97 but for older knives that shouldn't matter.

    You're welcome. Unfortunately the 4th edition has a price and rarity to match most GECs.

    I will request it through interlibrary loan and scan it to PDF. One of the perks of being a librarian is that book rarity means relatively little. Especially when compared to getting a GEC.

    They kept coming even after his warnings...tried to just bite my tongue and let them ride because others were good to chime in with meaningful content, post photos, etc. All good moving on...
