    That's great! Very nice of you @Magizm7! Glenn, does that mean you're going to do a GAW for your "new" old knife, the re-clad glennbad special lambsfoot? ;)

    D32678E1-DC3F-4A34-A103-F70635391DA9.jpeg My 93 in cocobolo came in the other day and it is a great looking piece I was under the impression these were a little smaller.
    Then I thought it looked familiar and pulled out my 47F&F and was like these are pretty similar.

    I have not followed this thread at all so I am sure someone already pointed this out but now I am wondering why such a large knife is going so quick.

    I love bigger knives, the 63 is one of my most carried patterns, but I can’t help feeling that the 93 would work much better if scaled down just a little.

    Anyway I like this 93 fine, it is executed with the usual GEC fit and finish so it is a solid piece.
    It is a good looking knife imo, just a bit too big, just a little.

    It depends on which 93 you got. Closed it only has a 3 7/8" length. Not large at all, more medium. And the lamb foot is a slim blade, so no problem pocketing it. The ramsfoot undoubtedly has a differently feel, but I don't have one so I can't comment.

    I have received a Cocobolo one but I have not posted pictures of it . It does not have anything but normal looking Cocobolo wood but the complete knife is very well made as expected . The the blade pull is about 6 and is easily pinchable . I was looking forward to using it because of the pinchabilty but my wife , who also has a small collection , thinks it is Too Pretty to use , so now WE have another Safe Queen . I see absolutely no problem carrying this 93 with Ramfoot Blade to work with . I have carried bigger . My favorite length is 4 & 1/8 . I will give you my thoughts on the Jigged Bone version when mine get here too Taylor .

    My 93 micarta has pretty much replaced my other GECs as the regular carry and use-it-like-a-pocket knife. Such fate may also befall the Cocobolo version, but not yet.

    Those cocobolo covered knives look great! I ended up getting a micarta version and haven't really decided if I wanted to keep it or not. Haven't even carried the darn thing. The action on mine is good. Not as good as my #93 Lambs though. This has been a spectacular run of knives though.

    The number 1 use of all my knives is this! I do exactly the same thing while driving, at work, waiting at an appointment, watching TV. You are not alone : )

    I guess it won't fit everybody, but its under 4", doesn't seem big to me at all, more like perfect. I have smaller and bigger knives and this is a great balance for me. I probably wouldn't gave bought it if it were a smaller version .

    I haven't seen any bad looking cocobolo yet so you're in luck even if its "normal looking". ;)
    You've still got the best looking stag knives I've seen.

    Got this Ram Foot today—my only one. The F & F is wonderful! Feels great in hand. The hafting is exceptional, blade centering perfect, jigging nicely executed, blade pull strong 6 and transitions from bolsters to handles spot on. Overall, all I can say is GEC is at the top of their game!!
