    It's essentially one long list of emails in the order the submit button was pushed. We go straight down the list.

    Glad you had eyes on it.

    I think ive had the page open for the last couple days. All i had to do was refresh when i got the notification. But it goes to show that no matter how you prepare, if you dont understand the rules, you can crack under the gec pressure.

    Yes, NW are 500pc drops on one dealer site. This was 1100pcs total production of which I am one of twenty or so dealers.

    Mike is just one of 20 or so dealers so his allotment is small compared to a Northwoods drop.
    A little late, just like the reserves today. Lol

    So we're talking 300+ people fighting for 20 or less of each cover?

    That makes me feel better, Mike. Thanks! It’s definitely not your fault you only get so many of them.

    Well I fortunately reserved a Black Plum. I almost spilled a whole jar of paint on my carvings when the notification came in.:rolleyes:

    I understand. The point I was trying to make is Northwoods used to be the knives that were hard to obtain. Recently it seems it's even harder to obtain a standard GEC knife.

    I understood your point. You are talking about @1/10th the number of knives - it will be harder. There are 19+ other dealers that have not even dropped them yet. But it is not just "standard GEC knife"; it is actually one of the most sought after knives of 2020. #23's are no problem to pick up, still. #19's are staying on sites for some time these days and not hard at all to acquire. #74's were in high demand, but still very attainable. So, it really boils down to the most demanded knives are harder to get.

    Like a lot of you, I had the page ready, just needed a refresh and submit. I had my phone in my hand when the telegram came in, did the process and they were on standby by the time the page loaded. I’m on standby for stag and ironwood.
    Might sound like it, but I’m not bitter, I think I can still probably get one. Just wish I wouldn’t have to stress over it ha!
    Glad to see some were able to reserve!

    John, your sense of humor usually picks me up.

    I’m starting to recover- I’ll just go fiddle with my other GECs and be happy.

    Well, the GOOD thing is, about a day after they ship, you'll be able to buy one at about double the price, here on the exchange. :rolleyes:

    edit:.... and Italy makes some really fine knives.... and you can actually BUY them....:cool::thumbsup:

    At least the knives are dependable ;) neighbour of mine was keeping a Ferrari in one of the garages a few years ago, looked OK-if you can stand bright red ;):poop: - but it was always giving trouble and a small fortune must've been spent in maintenace :eek:

    I had the page open on my computer and on my phone (in the background), but was away from both during the drop, so I didn't even see the notification until 45 minutes later. But it is ok. GEC still isn't as hard to get as Pappy Van Winkle. :D
