There’s not a one that doesn’t look really nice there. That viper is especially snazzy.
Don't forget the 65 pattern fish knives.
My only GEC stainless - 2 blade 48 trapper. I wish they had made more offerings in stainless in their mainstream patterns with a wider variety of handle materials.
My Stallion mammoth and morning coffee, black.
I totally did. There were those, and also 63 Mako Acorns. Were there Acorn Ben Hogans or just the Farm and Field?
That's a really nice one! What blade profile is the secondary, spey or wharncliffe?
The best (and worst) thing about the porch is how many knives you discover that you might not otherwise. If you can’t enjoy the collections of others it could run your capital into the ground trying to keep up!
The #65 Farm & Field & Fish knife was in 420
I’m a big fan of Elk covers, and my 74 has been my EDC for the last couple of months.
Lookin good Scott.
Reworked the blade. Yesterday, turns out I made a sheepfoot. Today, I think I have a lambfoot. Measures 7/16" at the ricasso and 3/8" (6/16") at the hoof.
#15 Navy knife
Andrew, Couple of those look familiar.
GEC hasn't made any SS knives since 2016, my wishful speculation ... GEC will upgrade from 440C to a better stainless, ATS34 maybe, they do have experience with that steel.
What pattern of traditional do you like now? I prefer around 3.5" single clip blade, pinchable with nice snap. Just so happens GEC 15 pattern is well designed / made and fits my needs. For a using knife, I like a little texture on the handle for grip. GEC 15 SS in burnt orange bone is almost perfect, if it had a pleasing two-tone contrast bone, it would be perfect. Elk 15s are nice too, but the orange bone has a better texture. They come up in the for sale forum or on the auction site from time to time. Viper is nice as it the conductor, if they fit your needs.
