    Thanks for catching that Al. I didn't recheck the #89, just copied my old post and added the newer patterns. Checked the #89 Northfield Executive Whittler as well as a GEC Gambler and both have no half stop on the main blade and half stops on the secondaries, like the other whittlers I have from GEC.

    Thanks, I kept picturing the Bullnose and calling it a Farmer but I have both of those and nope, they're not the same :)

    Thank you, added.

    No problem. Hopefully it'll be useful for those looking for their first or latest GEC.

    So the # 54 Cigar Whittler has no half stop on the main either, if I understand you correctly.

    Thank you, sir, for the clarification. I'm looking at a Cigar Whittler and am partial to half stops. Doesn't make much sense to me to have them on one end of the knife and not the other.

    My new 2-blade #79 Workhorse does NOT have half-stops. It's a single spring slippie. Not sure about the 3-blade #79's, but this one doesn't.
