Guy 'n' gals, I just got word this morning of the next GEC knife patterns on the not-too-distant horizon and I'm pretty excited. They are producing the 46 Whaler in steel; yep, steel frame and bolsters. The Tidioutes will be handled in cocobolo and Autumn Gold jig bone, and the Northfields will be in ebony, bone stag, and two acrylics of undetermined color. They switched up a little by using the cocobolo on the Tidioutes and the ebony on the NF's instead of the usual other way around. I'm a big fan of the ebony NF's!
Around the corner will be another run of the 42 lock backs in the usual (or not) handle materials. Smooth white/ivory bone will be one of the choices. NICE!
