    Yeah, that shield is too big. I could live with the rest though.

    i dont think they shrunk any of the shields, i dont blame them cause it wouldve been too much work to redo every shield slightly smaller. however some of the shields still work just fine without making the knife funny looking

    So I’ve been to the GEC site, and seen the production schedule, and dealer list, but I’m still at a loss as to where the Cripple Creek 14’s will show up. Could someone be so kind to DM me on how I can get my mitts on a double blade Ironwood 14?

    Thanks!
    ~Jim

    A couple of the 14 shields were new dies (boots and old man) and are appropriately sized. Of the non downsized shields, prefer the diamond, probably because it's smallest. No shield look works well on these too. Don't see the need for three domed pins and the center pivot to hold a capped cover this small in place. Losing at least one (or all) of the domed pins would make the cover appear larger and the shield appear smaller.

    Like the colors and saw cut bone of the AAPK version, but the triple callout makes me pass. Prefer the manufacturer's stamp on the tang.

    If the slight halfstop proudness was engineered out, 14s might be pinchable.

    The Lyle Fry SFO and the Cripple Creek 14’s have pretty tang stamps.

    Lyle’s does look amazing with that threaded top bolster! I think the top of the herd of CCs will be the stag with the buffalo shield.
