Thanks for the info Charlie. That's, er...disappointingOfficial word from the top; Bill has been running like crazy to get GEC ready for the Rendezvous, but finally got back to me!!
The construction of the knife - Nickel bolsters, and brass liners and pins!!
The bolsters are big, too big to try and form from steel. His first intention was an all steel knife, but it won't be the case here - (pun intended)!!
So however that affects your final vote . . . . . . . . . . . .
Nickel silver is almost entirely brassThe few knives I've owned with nickel and brass ... the nickel bolsters will age and take on a brass look as the age anyway.
A few of them may have just been passing throughInteresting how many jigglers aren't changing their votes.
Intrigued.. do you have a picture of this TC cherry?
"Sawcut cherry" has a nice ring to it. Then again, so does "cherry smoothie".
Edit word arrangement..
cherry smoothie vs smoothie cherry
How'd I mess that up? Haha
I think this is a great idea, except of course that it would be one smooth bone and one jigged.
As previously stated by some handsome genius (I can't remember the chap's name), Smooth bone is pre jigged jig bone.
Then we could visit each end of the jigging spectrum.
And that brings me to another point... aren't Jigged bone supporters really just the brothers and sisters of smooth bone supporters?
Jigged bone people are excellent people- always sticking up for the under dog.
Supplying votes to help the dreamers achieve their dreams.
And when dreamers achieve their dreams, we all win.
And when my cousins aunt's mother's former roommate, George Zip, was on his death bed, he said to me..."who are you?"... but then he said, "I've had a great life... just... just make sure the 2021 Blade Forum knife has smooth bone covers... the color... doesn't matter... " and he breathed his last. I wept openly at his dying request- a selfless one, and yet so well informed from a life well lived.
So lets rally together in these final hours and win one for the Zipper.
Vote Smooth Bone.
