Officially pumped!!! If anyone has GEC smooth red bone knives they would like to share, please do!
The micarta knives look good but the smooth red bone knives will likely take the price.
These knives are so cool. A crown lifter on a 14 is still my dream, but I'd be happy to try out an 85 pattern for this one.
I'm smitten with this thing now, going to do my best to pick one up. I'll be hitting refresh a lot over the next little while.
I was pretty much prepared to let this whole run pass me by but I am a huge sucker for red bone. If the coloring remains as deep as it appears in those unfinished examples, I am going to have to give it my best shot.
I'm lusting after a Helvie. Patiently waiting for them to release more as I refuse to pay secondary prices.
Well, if I don’t score an #85 I always have this to use.
I do not have any smooth red bone, but here are some other examples of GEC red. @mcc850 . They have very nice red dyes, and these 85’s look well saturated. This red bone is going to make it a bit easier to get a dead skunk I bet. My first choice has definitely switched! I believe this run of 85’s will reach epic status one day, similar to the Scouts and Beer Scouts. I haven’t been so excited about a knife in a long time.
EDIT, @knifethetank , OMG, you might be correct. That might not be red after all. If it is elderberry I sure hope it remains dark!
Your red bone GECs look fantastic! I have double checked with my dealer to make sure that I am still reserved for a red bone, and I'm in! I hope you can get your hands on one too. I noticed my collection the other day did not have any color besides normal wood/bone variants, and that I needed to find something red. This was also when I was assuming the 85 bone was going to be white though. Really excited to add some color!
Are all bone covers either smooth or jigged? Something like leathered bone would be pretty dang cool.
has GEC called it smooth red bone, my old eyes are bad but that bone looks more like elderberry to me
When you get the GSJ email it's like the first frost in the fall. You know things will be dropping everywhere soon.
Oof the smooth red bone is breathtaking
... including (hopefully) the prices.
Well, how about just a Scottie?
...at the bank!
Seems like they greased up some dead skunks
Looks good I'd say.
Agree, it doesn't look anything like smooth red bone. I would call it Elderberry Primitive bone... Or bumpy and pink
Dead skunks are looking fantastic!
I wonder why this has a black line down the center on some. Other uses of this cover didn't have that. It's fine, sets it apart from the other runs just curious...
