    now, wait just a minute, my other-side-of-the-world-brother-from-another-mother..... nobody is trying to take any helm, or stern, or any other nautical thang... this is just simply mental exercise... just for kicks...

    but the purple ramshorn sounds sort of cute...

    I don't know if anyone suggested this yet, but if they are making a club knife on the 23 for OKC, and seeing how we have piggy backed with other club knives in the past, a 23 makes sense. Now here is where we, BF, could really stand out. I know this is not for everyone, not even my favorite set up, but the stars seem to be aligning for a knife that hasn't been produced since the 90's and was sold in huge quantities by Camillus. How about a replica of the Camillus 716 pattern on the 23 gec? It probably wouldn't ever be built again, unless asked for. A double lockback large trapper. Again, not my favorite, but the opportunity seems to be ripe. A locking drop point and bulbous spey/skinner.

    @Rockon75 Theres a few that would love that knife but I think for most, the size is way too big for it to win in voting. Also, I wonder where that would put the cost.

    I’d vote for it ;)

    Much as I'd love a 2-blade locking 23 or a Whaler, the price limit of $100 might be a problem. Maybe with plain trim and an inexpensive cover material?

    They did and I believe they said never again. They felt it was too hard on their equipment.

    Unless you mean CPM154, that's not true. They made stainless knives in 2019.

    Pretty sure I said I believe.

    Maybe it was specific to CPM154.

    Hmmm.. ok. I didn't know that. The one GEC stainless I have has some other name stamped on the tang of the blade... I just assumed they farmed out the blades to someone else, and did all the other work in house. If that is the case, I don't see how stainless would be too hard on their equipment.. but, I'm not a GEC cutler, and I don't play one on TV....:D

    I think GEC from time to time does some 440C blades and the never again IIRC was a time they tried a fancier stainless I know they don't often to runs in 440C but I don't think it is an off limits steel.

    maybe not 2020, but sometime soon, $100 isn’t going to buy much...... probably will need to bump limit to 125 or 150.

    A two blade folder with one stainless and one carbon blade would be really fun and useful.

    A mini trapper with a stainless clip and carbon spey? And desert ironwood.
