    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.

    Good question, Vince. :thumbsup: 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. :rolleyes:)

    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 :cool:

    Regards, Will

    @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 :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Will

    92 Talon in Ebony has some of the mystique of older knives, ageing well too-unlike the rest of us :eek:

    I do not have a lot of spear mains, but do like these three.

    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;)
