    I have two Canal Streets and one Canal Street made Ka-Bar in the chestnut. I think its pretty cool :cool:
    Having it on a 15, and an actual GEC stainless no less....yeah, I'd probably pay too much too :p

    Thanks! I love it. If I ever have to get rid of it. . .well let’s not think about that.

    Those are great knives and I agree. Very cleverly made is a great way to describe it.

    One wouldn't know the knife comes apart if they didn't already know it. (if that makes any sense)

    That little curl on the cap lifter keeps the halves from separating so you can use the blade without fear of separation. The halves will only separate after the fork is opened. Brilliant!

    I just received this jigged goldenrod 44 buffalo jack... it is to be the stable-mate of the one that started my GEC knife family... the ebony buffalo jack....
    These are wonderful knives. Great combination of blades, both pulls on the same side, very nicely balanced. One could do much worse than having this as their only knife.

    I don't have a "Bug out bag" but if I did this would definitely have to be in it. What great concept.

    E4801569-C40D-45E6-B8E8-62FF8A521DB1.jpeg Just got this 82 GEC Stockman.
    I really love the blade selection on this one.

    Well, I got this Schrade Walden Stainless 825 today but the pile side cover was cracked in a couple of places. It was advertised as having no cracks. I have two options, I can send it back for a full refund or keep it and get a partial refund of my choosing. I could then have someone put some new covers on it. I like the option to keep it as it is a nice little knife.

    Personally? I'd keep it, and see about filling the cracks with superglue or thin epoxy.

    I finally found a slightly used Case pen knife on the 'bay for a good price and grabbed it. I'm not sure what year it was made, as the tang stamp doesn't really match any on the list I have....any Case experts that can determine when it was made?

    It's a great size, just about a short 1/8" longer than my 2020 CV half-whittler. I haven't measured it, but it appears to be about 5/8" longer than my recently acquired peanut.

    Blades are in pretty nice shape, but look like they have been buffed off... no biggie to me, as it's not excessive.

    Here 'tis...

    I believe that tang stamp was used from 1992 -1999 and yours is a 1995.

    Ok... sounds about right. The blades are not stamped CV, but I'm pretty sure they are carbon... I'll test to see.

    edit: what is odd is that the "S's" on mine are rounded, instead of the straight line S's (lightning bolt S's??) on this one. Were the shapes of the S's interchangeable?

    They are great watch pocket knives. Small enough to stay hidden and big enough to be useful. :cool::thumbsup:

    The cool thing about the Bantam caplifter is it can also be used as a can opener... no need for an extra tool. :cool::thumbsup:

    I ended up keeping it. The seller gave me about half of my money back.

    Yup, you're right. Don't know what I was thinking. The tang stamp charts I've got show the '92 to '99 with the lightening bolt "S". I think I recall that Case is using the lightening bolt for stainless and the normal "S" for carbon for the 2020-2029 tang stamp. I don't know if Case ever did that before, although it would be consistent with your blades being carbon. Seems like one of the tang stamp charts would have noted it though. I don't know. Huh.

    You're right, Mike although I don't know when Case actually started doing that either. I do know that they used the S in this same manner from 2000-2009. Here's a 2003 with a stainless blade and a lightning bolt S.

    And here's a 2007 with a CV blade and a regular S.

    Just in: Buck 112 EcoLite red plum paperstone and a small/medium Ka-Bar 1186 lock back. I don't know much about the Ka-Bar. Seems like a nice knife.
