If you get ahold of a Northfield, I'd love to grind the blade down to a wharncliffe for you
Another pic, and a few zoom shots.
I love the oil the joints stamp.
Exceptional! I’m distraught to have missed out on those.
Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your little write ups.
Lol...thanks for the offer. I wouldn't do that though, the cocobolo ramsfoot is beautiful as is.
That pretty much sums up me for this pattern. First saw the drawing on their site, and was, interesting, but kind of clunky. Then after spending time on the Lambsfoot thread I became more intrigued. Then came the production photos and I thought why not? Managed to get a micarta handled one and after using it found to my surprise how much I liked it. I’ve always been a big fan of wood handles so I was primed and ready for the Cocobolo.
That 93 micarta knife hasn’t been out of my pocket.
Sorry. Posted in wrong thread.
"Unfortunately, I cannot go into detail on how we make our various bone handles. I can tell you its North American Cattle Bone and that the slight texture you can feel and see on the darker areas of the bone is the natural surface of the bone.

Thank you, William Howard!
My 93 coco is on its way....woo hoo!
Wish I had been paying attention, didn't even notice these were going on sale till it was too late. Those ebonies look pretty amazing.
Zooma zoom!!! Wonderful zooms!!!
Great pictures. The tang stamps and etch alone are enough to make me want one, which is something I never thought I’d say. The jigging and bolster put it over the top.
One point that really stands out to me on this run is the uniqueness of the kick. Large, long and flat. I don't remember seeing another gec with this style kick. It looks really clean and refined if you will. That in combination with some of the best and most unique jigging I've seen from gec, and all the new/different tang stamps, makes this a real pearl.
Thanks, Charlie. And thank you Sabercat!!!!
Looks good. Reminds me of an old piece of tooling equipment, they had these types of markings.
Stopped by the GEC factory store today. Was a great experience, super friendly and helpful staff. Picked up a natural canvas micarta rams foot. Very nice knife! Excellent fit and finish.
I love the ebony on this knife.
Everyone please stick to photos and relevant discussion...not the purchase process.
The kick is something I hadn’t even noticed. Charlie really paid attention to the details on this run. It looks just like the kick on the A. Wright & Son Lambsfoot photos I see. Well done Charlie! This American Lambfoot is a real winner!
