So cool to see it next to the empire @Augie
Finally received my Black Jack today but it was not a day to get any pictures taken . This is not a Boy's Knife but to me it is a nice size . I was not able to see any 2 Toned Black in the handles . The F & F of this knife is as good as any GEC that I have handled . It appears to me that both Blades have been Tumbled prior to the Sharpening process . This is way different than what I have seen on virtually all of my other GECs . Both blades are Flush in in all 3 positions . I like the clip and pen blades but I would trade the Pen for a Coping or Sheepfoot but this sized Pen blade is nice too . For those of you who wanted one and were not able to get one , I feel for you my friends . There have been many really great photos shown of this beautiful knife . I will show a picture of mine eventually when I can . Thank you Charlie @waynorth and GEC . I will carry this knife , but only in a slip . I have a couple other knives that I would rather get Scuffed and Scratched .
Such a grand Jack Knife, Charlie!
Fit/Finish/Walk/Talk are all superb. Blades snap with authority and that is a favored feature! The difference in finish that Harry @Old Engineer mentioned is quite noticeable at the cut swedge on the master blade -- crisp, but no sharp spots. True for the Northfields as well.
paired with a Northfield...
Ahhhh hah! the tumbling would explain the softer corners of the swedge. I picked that up right away when I first handled my BlackJack. I actually prefer this feel. The only sharp edges I like are at one end of the blade. This would be something new for GEC, yes? (tumbled blades?) I need to check the end of the tangs now to see if there's a difference there as well when I get home to it.
What a fantastic looking pair @MerryMadMonk !! Thanks for sharing.
I am a liking me some BIG shields
Nice stack o' shields, Lloyd!! @Luger1952
I'm right there with you!!
I like your Black 'n White side-by-side, Al!!@MerryMadMonk
Nice group of large pocket knives Lloyd - the #86 looks like a shrimp compared to the rest and I know it's one fistful of knife!
Thanks, Renato! Thanks, Charlie and thanks for bringing that black 'un to us!
All, I’m looking to flush the joints and get any factory gunk out before carrying full time. What do you all use to flush joints? Mineral oil, 3 in 1? Thanks for any help!
Any general purpose oil is fine...... If you are going to cut up your steak and potatoes you might want to use a food safe oil such as mineral oil....
Great pair there Al
As always, Impressive Lloyd
Congrats on scoring the black & white combo. The shield on the Northfield sure looks small though, doesn't it?
Picked up a second Black Jack, just as nice as the first, maybe even darker ebony.
Soap and warm water, then dry, and then lube with mineral oil. KISS
A little white cloud!!
Still makes a nice knife!!
You managed to find a decent Stag in a shortage of same, John!!
Thanks Charlie, they sure did not last long.
Tried to post a photo, but I’m new here and I’m struggling mightily. May try again later
I like big shields and I can not lie.
