    big GEC fan

    happy to ship them over to the UK on the basis of a photo

    not yet had an issue with one and own a fair few

    the 70's patterns are my go to knives

    big fan of the #71,72, and 73

    got a fixed blade on its way at the moment

    would definatly bag a #74 if they ever bring out a single blade clip point

    Woodrow, I hear you on the #81 frame stockman. Pretty much a dream knife for me in stag, brown bone or ebony with matchstriker pull. Be cool with a proper spey blade ground very thin and hard complete with the old timey "For Flesh Only" etch!

    ...or one in red and green acrylic, with "For Gummibears Only" etched on the spey-blade

    they can be pretty dangerous, especially in packs . a dedicated gummibear blade would definitely be of use (I hope GEC isn't reading this ).

    GummiBears . . . no, but now Sour Rips, that's another story altogether! And any GEC will work beautifully.

    For Sunday go-to-meeting . . .

    it's hard to beat a nice thin pocket/NKP friendly Whiteowl
    I thought I was in a bad mood but it's been a few years so I guess this is who I am now.

    I am saving my pennies for the batch of 73 and 72 in production at the moment. Will be getting a few I hope!

    Definitely could be a subset for their acrylic handled versions. That would be kinda fun. If I was going to buy two, I might pick up one.

    Speaking of acrylic, here's something I learned over the week end (GEC Rendezvous) that I never would have guessed.

    Look at these two knives:



    and






    Their covers are made from the same acrylic.

    Yes, really.

    If the material used as "blue corduroy" on the Maverick is sliced the other way, ie, through the stripes, the result is the "faded blue denim" as seen on the Conductor Whittler, sparkles and all.

    That's kinda neat. I'm generally not a fan of Acrylic, but there are a few exceptions. I really like that blue in the conductor. The other is the Western Outlaw with the Guitar Shield. Don't know if I'll ever get around to buying one (too many knives too little dollars), but I do like it.

    Well, it's official... my new favourite GEC is the #68 Pony Jack. My particular specimen is about as flawless as I can imagine: everything is smooth and flush, no gaps, gorgeously matched ebony covers that each have a subtle 'flame' of chocolate brown woodgrain (I wish I had a better camera that could capture the true beauty of the scales.) Simple and elegant, dressy or casual. As much as I like the other Great Eastern folders in my collection, the Pony Jack wins by a furlong!

    The PJs are a great pattern for sure. I specifically like them with the clip blade. It's just the right combo for that knife. For the White Owl, the spear seems to look right.

    Agreed! The clip-point master with the long pull also makes it easy to get at behind that pen-blade.

    Agreed, a clip point Pony Jack is where it is at. I can actually pinch the main open on mine.

    Id like to see GEC take their #81 pattern and make an improved muskrat / Hawbaker. Id just love it and would buy as many different handle options I could afford.
