Now that is a Knife my friend .
Released from it's knife roll bonds and free to join in the wild apple season that's in full swing on the prairie.
Carried 2 GEC's today
Many thanks, John.
That’s an interesting one, Will. I assume that’s bone, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any quite like that from GEC. I really like the way it looks, so please don’t take offense at my next statement … it reminds me a bit of the imitation stag (Staglon?) you’d see on something like an Schrade Uncle Henry, only better.
Indeed it is Harry, one of my favorites
Those ones of yours aren't too shabby.
@btb01 No offence at all Barrett Fact is some Staglon looks better than low grade Stag to my eye. This one is a bit of a rarity for GEC as it's called Bonestag they seldom seemed to go in for jigged bonestag there was a Brimstone Bone that was similar. This knife is an early type from 2008.
Thank you Gordon . Much appreciated my friend .
An oddity today. Oddity for me anyway as 2 spring Jack knives are not usually my thing-much prefer blade each end single-spring. However, if you carry the same knife or pattern everyday it can cause dulness not only of the blade but of the mind too....
From the first run of 56s and like this bone a lot. Catherine the Great 5 Kopecks.
blade each end is my preference too Will, followed closely by single blades such as this little TC (#14)
in black which I think is appropriate for the day (friday - 9/11) - God Bless America
Super cool #56.
Been carrying this one for over a week now, I don't think I'm ready to stop.
This is my most carried GEC, and it recently found it's way back into my pocket. This one has at least five years of every day carry, and several more in predominant rotation status...
got away from carrying it for the past year or two...time these days seems distorted and unaccountable...
but like an old friend, once reacquainted, the lost time slips away and it's as if nothing has transpired. If I seriously had to pick one knife out of the hundreds, this one would be the winner. I was once in discussion with a custom maker to re-create this knife in modern steel but keeping the proportions and all true to form, but alas that was never meant to be...
Since I "fixed" the patina, my 852211 Harness Jack (Number 24 of 35) is back in my pocket.
It's ceased being a fingerprint and smudge magnet.
(Refer to post 117341 of the 'What "Traditional Knife" are you totin' Today" thread for the other three knives that are part of my EDC this week.)
