I can't wait to see what handles GEC uses on this next batch, though I have a feeling it's going to cost me money
Beautiful knife, i love the sheep foot master blade and the handle color. That carving is also cool, what kind of wood did you use?
I positively love this little guy...
Seriously guys, I've drooled over this thread all day. All I can say is I know what I'm looking for on my upcoming cake-day. Those ebony barlows are the classiest looking knives I've ever seen.
Wow. Just, wow.
Meanwhile, some #25 Jacks are starting to make their way through, with Dead Skunk and Kryptonite covers on tap:
I'm hoping to pick up one of this years 25's to go with my ebony barlow. The little fella has been worked hard and is still robust. Great size pocket knife with handles thick enough for hard cutting. My most carried GEC by far!
... Word has it that more barlows are still months away, but these upcoming Little Jacks sure do look fine in the meantime.
The King Wood sounds nice, and that snakewood, wow! It makes my Case Select snakewood Barlow look pretty un-snakey
I'm looking for single blade models. Wharnies, Clips and hopefully a Drop Point. I've got a Spear in stag, but something about the proportions of a Spear in this size blade just doesn't appeal to me. I ground the point down to more of a Drop Point taper, but if I can get one that way from the factory...: )
Yep, these new 25's are a slippery slope for me! Afraid I may have to "fall" into a couple of them
All of which I've mentioned before, but: it's still happening!
I have not seen anything indispensable (heh) in the new lineup yet, but I love watching the #25s roll out again.
I have this one on the way as of about 30 minutes ago. I have been trying to decide between this 2 bladed one or a 1 blade e-z open.

Original cardboard storage tube.
Meanwhile, here come these:
... As promising an array as this is, I haven't seen my own Next One yet. I like the look of the spear blade on this pattern, but find it less helpful in use than other main blades in this size and width.
Amber Jig catches my eye. But I prefer the Spear when it is in EZ-Open frame.
I have to say I'm disappointed with this release, the only thing different in these are nail nicks and covers. I was really hoping for different blades, singles, and Barlows
Now why did I have to click on this thread ?
That little Micarta covered one just might do it for me...I think I can resist...maybe...
I hear they only made 10 of the micarta, so don't wait too long!
