I have a GEC Tidioute Ebony Trader in hand.
This knife has stunning Ebony scales, plain bolsters, lanyard loop and clip blade.
There is not even a HINT of a gap on this knife. This IS an AMAZING knife.
It was hard to get over the initial level of fit and finish...Just over the top.
Open the blade with a smooth cammed action ending in a more awe inspiring lock engagement than a Sebenza.
Lock up is as solid as a rock and this knife exhibits zero blade play. You all know I am picky too.
The blade has a very subtle yet prominent swedge running from the plunge line and extending nearly to the tip.
The blade grind tapers very gradually the length of the blade leaving a very thin tip. The primary grind on this knife is by FAR the most impressive of any of my GEC's. It is so close to zero edge and that makes me extremely happy.
This knife is simply an amazing piece of cutlery. I can't see wanting anything more than this knife offers. Its perfection IMHO.
Pics to come and please anyone with one of these post up your thoughts and pictures
