Edited: I decided my previous reply didn't add much to the conversation. I will say I am a big fan of GEC, but don't shy away from pointing out my detractions.
However, their incredible service cannot be denied. I sent in a #13 Tidioute Whittler in Muslin Micarta which was expected to arrive in Titusville on Thursday (3/16). I sent it in because the pen blades were proud of the frame enough to catch a fingernail. As in my previous post, I admit I am more sensitive to this than most. Still, I received my knife back today (3/20) with the pen blades lowered. I really don't think a quicker turn around on repairs is possible, let alone expected. GEC is a great company making great knives through the hard work of great people, and I will continue to support them.
However, I am not a huge fan of this new #35. I'm sure others will find it both collectible and utilitarian.
