    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.

    On the pilot run of a pattern, how many recieve the PPP mark? Is it a certain number, or all of the Tidioites?

    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.

    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.
