    I think GEC nailed this model. To my opinion it looks much better than the old time original pattern. The shadow model is the best. Great looking knife !

    Strangely enough when I started collecting, I didn't care for wharncliffe blades at all. 15 years later, I almost exclusively carry a knife with a wharncliffe main.

    How could I forget this little guy....a recent arrival that was in my pocket. The Dan Burke collaboration knives were some of the best Queen has done in this millennium.

    Northwoods Forest Jack - a Derek Bohn design built by GEC on their 54 frame, a bit of a stylistic variation from the standard wharncliffe.

    Over the years I’ve had a few wharncliffes pass through my hands but they never resonated enough with me to use or even to keep. I was around when GEC released the 47 and I passed on them (ouch!). I was recently gifted the Rough Ryder (a 47 clone) by Darren @waverave and I’ve been carrying and using it ever since. 95537E6D-F941-4F45-84B1-485CA0E02D41.jpeg

    Don't think I've ever posted in this thread :)
    The wharncliffe blade is not my typical carry but there is no denying the aesthetic beauty. I have acquired several now.
    The RR Alan posted is from a really nice production run. I had maybe 7 or 8 of them altogether so pretty decent sample size all things considered. Looking forward to seeing what they do next! (which is crazy when you think about it)

    Here is one in Pau Ferro wood

    Is this an optical illusion? Are these the same pattern/size or did they have two different size wharny whittlers in that series?

    Wow, thank you. Good to know. I'll have to look for a #39097. What handles were available?

    The ones I know for sure: Burnt Orange Bone, Antique Green Bone, Stag, and Mother of Pearl. I think there were a couple of celluloids, but I would advise against the celluloid as it is especially volatile on the Winchesters (and Case Classics).

    [​IMG]It’s a bit worn but this ~100 year old Hammer Brand looks sort of Wharncliffie like.
