    I know you are going to Love that big bright beautiful knife :)

    Today's mail was nothing short of amazing. I had been absent from the forum for the better part of a couple years, excepting an occasional swing by, and upon returning, kept seeing these wonderful single blade 440C knives from GEC, my curiosity was piqued, and I did some digging, only to find they were long gone and none to be found, snooze, ya loose lol, but I put up a distress flag, and lo and behold, my call was answered. Thank You Ron, I hope you know how much this means to me, and thank you for the little extra bonus in that beautiful copper liberty coin. It is a really nice proof stamp :) A single blade slip joint, GEC 440C drop point was a kind of grail knife to me, one I kept wishing they had available...now I have one to use and enjoy, and it will get used.

    another knife I had always wanted but never pulled the trigger on, was a Queen Mountain man, maybe because I was torn on whether to get a slip joint, or a lock back...I found this sweet big ole' cutter online and snapped it up. It got held up someplace in TX because of the ice storms, and I was beginning to get nervous, but she showed up today, and I gotta say...when Queen gets it right, they really nail it. This one is a true winner, nice action, pleasant pull, great walk and talk, beautiful covers...I can hardly wait to put this blade to the diamond stones and make it sing. I wanted to post this because I'll be out of touch for a week or so...going Diving in Roatan Honduras...

    Thanks Much my friend, I'll take good care of this Mustang :)

    We got matching coins to carry...


    @Half/Stop Ron was gracious enough to sell me two Willamette Whittlers this week. Man oh man are they swell! I was trying to hold off posting them, because I have a couple Grinling Whittlers on the way, too, to show them all at once; but there have been some shipping snafus with them, so I couldn't wait any longer. I'm carrying the Cocobolo, and the coin.

    What a nice touch! The Liberty ounce of copper!


    Wohoo! Glad also to see that Ron has that confetti TK Cuban. It looks like a celebration knife if I've ever seen one!

    Congrats, that 74 is one heck of a knife.:thumbsup: Wish they'd make more with 440. I have a cocobolo 73 that's one of my favorite EDCs.

    Im pretty happy having the ones I own, the reluctance of them to make more of them keeps them precious to me as users...

    Mine is plain old 1095 but it's got an honest to goodness patina, nothing forced, that works real nice with the dark wood. Enjoy!

    I'm in NC and with the hot summers, mine partina, then rust, nice deep spots and pits of rust. 420HC and 440C are life savers to my knives. I am a big fan of 1095 and other
    Carbon steels for a good part of the year...the hot months, not so much. That being said, I have a Powderhorn that has been a year round carry knife
    For several years, it's time to re surface both blades.

    I love each knife for what it is though, not what I wish it was. It's all good stuff!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I haven't got this one in hand yet I just scored it the other night.This will be my second GEC#16 Canoe. I've owned a few TC Barlows a Northwoods Michigan Jack a GEC #98 Texas Camp Knife S.F.O. and some fairly rare GECs But of all the knives I ever bought and sold This little GEC Canoe was the model I missed the most lol.Something about it just strikes my eye right. :eek::cool::thumbsup: The first one I had was in Jigged brown bone I believe. This one has got the most beautiful Snake Wood CoversI've seen in a long time. I believe this is 1of only 24 ever made with these handles. 15168315707511797882834.jpeg 1516831574564-1639823618.jpeg 1516831573432-596001477.jpeg 15168315723001804840259.jpeg
