Two spears to "rule" them all.

This thread in part inspired me to write a Knife Thoughts article on blade shapes, so here's my GEC USER spear points. I've got some RRs, Victorinoxs, and such with spear blades but I thought these looked good together.
Old Boiley - I have been carrying this knife for over 7 years now - it holds an edge forever (almost!!)!!
New acquisition at the Oregon Show, this old Schrade Cut. Co. bowled me over!!
Great thread Will!! 10 pages while my back was turned for a minute!!!
Isn't that three spears?
Good question, Vince. Secondary pen blades sure look like little spearpoint blades to me, but I doubt that everyone agrees with me.
(Having just sent in tax returns on Monday, I'm happy if I'm off by no more than 1 on my calculations. )
Victorinox seems to do well with Spear mains.
An excellent grouping which very much illustrates the essence of the Spear: its variability and the fact it compliments the frame of the knife.
Still longing for a Barehead Longpull Spear 15 or a 68 White Owl re-run with Spears
@waynorth Thank you Charlie and thanks for displaying a very interesting Serp Schrade. A wonderful testament to jigging skill and beautiful long Spear. The blades must sit down low in the frame and I notice a tidy cut-out to access the minor's nick
92 Talon in Ebony has some of the mystique of older knives, ageing well too-unlike the rest of us
More about that Spear Schrade in the Oregon Show thread, Will. It's way cool!! Nicely fitted!
Wow! Great knife.
I do not have a lot of spear mains, but do like these three.
L-R: GEC 77 mineral oil reflecting on blade, Northwoods Indian River Jack, Northwoods Presidential.
@flatblackcapo really atmospheric shot there The Teardrop a big favourite of mine and I really like those American Number/Licence plates, could do with one for my garage
Here a GEC 25 Spear and an early model too 08 or 09. This is one frame I think that doesn't suit the Spear so well, it's too short and stubby, goes well with Drop-Point (rare) or Clip/Sheepfoot
You made me realize something important: the Spear looks very at home on the 25 frame when it doesn't have the EZ-Open notch. In fact, most knives and their blades look better without it
