Still no word on the jigged bone.
That sabre grind looks good, way too big of a knife for me though.
“#97 Tidioute, Allegheny, fitting the Maroon Linen Micarta to scales.”
Anyone else notice this caption? I wonder what the “Allegheny” is about. I know there’s an Allegheny Knife Works, but I don’t think they’re tied to GEC.
Tidioute sits on the Allegheny River...… Possibly that is the connection?
Here's a bit of information that might be relative.
I think you guys are onto something! I’ll bet the 97’s name will be the Allegheny.
It should be called the river boat gambler
The 89 already has that name. Great knife, especially clip main.
oh, well then, how about the Marauder!
now thats a knife! ive always had an on and off fancy for coke bottle knives, so im on the hook for one atm
On the pilot run of a pattern, how many recieve the PPP mark? Is it a certain number, or all of the Tidioites?
I noticed that today too But in the links...
That settles it! Looks like they updated the link.
That would be very cool.
I am also a big fan of the saber grind and double pull. Makes it really look like an old coke bottle pattern to me.
Hmm, I like it. I grew up fishing the Allegheny closer to Titusville, but now live on the Allegheny near Pittsburgh. I guess I have to get one!
I also have now found out that the Allegheny Mountain Knife Collectors Association club knife for 2019 will be the #97 but I don't know which handle material yet.
I can only wish for a saber ground double pull ebony........
It should be Tickler. That's etched on the blade of many a large old coke bottle knife. If they etched that it would be pretty swell.
Good "ha" on the "swell," Paul.
Looks like Autumn Gold Jigged Bone for the 97 Tidioute
So, am I the only one here that is mildly disappointed that at least some of these #97s aren't going to be liner locks?
This would’ve been a good choice for a locking blade, for sure. I have high hopes for something unexpected to come out of this run, though.
