    Thanks. It's not that big of a deal, but the rim end of the bullet is a little sharp. I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to break the edge a bit.

    It's not a GEC, however...

    I also am assuming based on conversations with others. I believe it was the difficulty in assembly. I agree with you the 35 frame would make several great knives : scout, cattle, jack, and another blade combo pen knife. At 3¾ inches it fits my hand perfectly and the blade length it can handle is nice.

    Looks like GEC finally announced what's coming after the 23s! They are planning on doing a run of 33 Conductors next. They have previews up on the site.

    I haven't bought a knife in almost 9 months, but that may change things... especially if they do one in stainless!

    Does anyone know yet how big these are supposed to be?

    If you're referring to the 33, the website lists them at 3 and 3/8 inch closed.

    I've always wanted a conductor. I think I will probably need several as I have seven grandchildren and it just may be the perfect knife for them. Of course I have several 14 patterns tucked away for them but I can't see that would make any difference in buying 33's for them all.

    I’ll probably get at least three versions of these, but I do hope they firm up the springs this time.

    I see an interesting new shield.

    May have to limit your take - I think what you see is what you get. NF Stag and Tidi Jigged Bone is the word on the street.

    I had a #33 and really enjoyed it and stupidly sold it.

    I hope that jigged one is jigged micarta. That'd be real cool.

    Wow! I'm surprised by that. Is it a large number of each? Or just throwing a small run of #33s in for fun? haha

    After so many months of not having much to talk about with regards to GEC, it is nice to see the #33s in the 2020 lineup - even if it comes with limited choices. I am always down with some good Stag and even if the bone option proves to be drab, the interesting shield might make up for it.

    Regardless, it looks like a nice pen knife.

    Imagine that #33 in new "2020 Dumpster Fire Glitter Acrylic" with a Bladeforums stamp ;) :D

    It is unfortunate the 33 will not come with ebony or cocobolo, but the knife looks good.

    Stag is always a go for me because I am not a shield kind of guy. But I’m quirky, I almost always have to have a band on my cigars! Of course it bring out the true flavor;).

    You know, I am weird like that too - I definitely like a band on my cigar, I only take it off once the ash arrives. There is some interesting discussion and opinions with regards to cigar bands - many of which come from much older times.

    With regards to shields - I like that there is generally a decent variety with GEC, one can usually find a shield or no-shield combination that strikes their fancy.

    What's the closed length on the 33's?
    Did a quick bing search and got lots of hits, but no dimensions.
    TIA
