    That's the very knife I thought of John when I saw the shield placement, the Walls rope? knife:thumbsup: I too applaud GEC's "outside the box" or "tribute to the past" line of thinking:thumbsup::cool:

    Really? o_O I don't see a matchstrike nail nick.

    Yes, I was thinking I'd seen it before too, but couldn't bring it to mind.
    I like the way GEC will try something different, and I kinda like this one. Funny it's getting negative reactions, but to each their own. (I'm not a fan of fuzzy micarta, but folks seem to like it)

    Antique autumn jig bone looks real nice, this was my must have Ram but I'm disappointed with the shield.
    I'm sure they will still fly off the shelf and I'll probably still try and get one but won't be disappointed if I don't.
    Sorry to repeat myself but this knife would have looked great with no shield or better placement. just my opinion.

    And the shield and it's placement actually add to the appeal for me. Different strokes and all that...:)

    It’s pristine. The look is the result of shooting in selective low light, and the resulting shadows. The idea is that my main goal was to show the Ebony in a different light. The majority of the Waynorth Ebony images look fine, but show little of the Ebony’s character.

    The cocobolo used on the 93’s seems like the best grade and most consistent used by GEC in a long time. I have not seen a coco yet that I would be embarrassed to pull out of my pocket.

    I'm loving the new ram shield and the placement. I usually only keep one of a pattern, but this has been a really interesting lineup of 93s. May have a few rams hanging around the ol' pasture.

    Yep. :thumbsup: I just mentioned to another brother how the excitement of this run reminded me a little bit of how fun the 78 releases were.

    I'd have to give the Cocobolo on last year's #44 the nod over the #93s. That said, those two are the best batches of coco in recent memory.

    Yes, seen the shield placement before on a Rope Knife like @Augie.
    Here it is on an Eye Brand small Jack. On the whole, I don't favour this departure....

    Well Will @Will Power, at least with this "departure" you won't end up in the abattoir. :)

    @waynorth named these knives Ram's Foot and they're great knives. However, the blades on these knives look suspiciously like the Sheepfoot blade:rolleyes: which has been used on knives with a nautical theme. That said; I've photographed my Ram's Foot knife with Cocobolo covers with a Shellback "Crossing the Line" (equator) coin.

    Thanks Charlie and GEC for making these knives available.

    That cocobolo #93 is crazy. Last year I spotted a #44 Cocobolo with a knot hole. This is the best GEC cocobolo knife that I have ever seen. Wonderful for you ! Right on !
