    I agree - love the 78's! But I have another one that I use. I want to keep this one pristine as I plan to leave it to a grandson :thumbsup:.

    Beautiful Pony Jacks! There's just something about cigar patterns that makes so aesthetically pleasing. I wish they'd do some again, there's few of them and you really don't see them enough ... Not the mention how awesome the bone on that run is too.

    Thanks Paul! :) The Pony Jack was one of Bob’s favorites! I remember having several discussions with him about the pattern. He bought a Nifebrite model and had it recovered in Ebony. I’m curious where it got off to! :)

    Thanks! :) I agree, I love the cigar patterns! :thumbsup:

    I haven't posted in this thread yet, so today I'm posting up my Boy's knife in knifebrite acrylic; it's the first GEC brand knife I ever bought. Still a fine knife... It has been loved and carried frequently and used a fair amount, covers and bolsters are showing signs of close association with other pocket occupants, lots of fine scratches and some staining from cutting food stuff. It's right in the center of my "sweet spot" for everyday carry.

    Super nice. I hope GEC decides to do some of these again.

    To me Ron, I bought it from him in one of his last sales, I then passed along to Signalprick here on the forum:thumbsup:

    Very cool pair today. I'm really liking the possum skinner. Both blades are slicers. The micarta on my Barlow looks great. IMG_20190117_143332.jpg

    Those are beauties, Ron! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: It's a shame you're only using the one, though; you should really let those other's do some cutting, too! If you wanna send one or two of 'em my way, I'd be happy to help. ;) :D

    Do you know when the last time they ran that pattern was? It must've been few years, I don't remember seeing it in production since I've been buying/collecting GEC knives.
