    Very cool, Ron! :thumbsup: I was going through my knife collection spreadsheet yesterday (‘cause who doesn’t have one of those? ;)) updating production totals on my 2018 knives and making sure I’d added all my more recent purchases. I started acquiring GEC’s in 2015, and while I have picked up some older knives here and there, for the most part my collection started with knives made in 2014-2015. Even though it’s only been a couple years, it’s still amazing to see the difference in production totals. Most of the 2014-2015 knives have production totals like that — 50 or so knives made in each handle material — while anything from the last couple years starts at at least 100 and could be as many as 500-600. I appreciate that GEC is adapting to the demand (things would be chaos if they were still only producing 50 of each knife), but it is a bit of a shame, not seeing those small numbers anymore.

    I love this 66 calf roper. Every time I get it out I try to talk myself into carrying it. But I just CAN'T do it......maybe someday
