    Bought my first GEC!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    tonite i ordered a Great Eastern Cutlery: #25 Easy Open Jack in Desert Sand Jigged Bone and i have you guys to blame. all these nice knives ive been looking at inspired me.
    this will be my first GEC knife and i am really looking forward to it getting here so i can drool all over it. i will get pics up when i get it. im sure you all have seen one, but this being my first, im gonna have to show it off.

    one thing id like to add.... it cost me more twice than the going price ...
    in order to buy another knife without having to take heat from the woman, i bought Mindy a framed print shes always wanted.
    shes happy, im happy, that was some good thinking, huh?

  2. The knife might have cost you its price and the price of the print BUT a happy wife is priceless. I look forward to seeing photos of your new knife.

    i ordered the 25 with the sheepsfoot blade.
    some might scratch their head on that one, but its the blade that gets used the most on my 301, so it made perfect sense to me.

    You're gonna like that knife, woody.

    You picked a good one for sure. Pocket friendly, handy sheepsfoot blade, great 440C steel, and built like a little tank.

    I have the Grape bone version and I love it. Good choice!

    i really like the idea of the easy open design. i have a real nasty habit of chewing my nails when stressed so a knife with a small nail nick isnt alway the easiest for me to open.
    the football season begins this week, so its the perfect knife for this time of year. lol

    Look what one Sodbuster did to you.

    Be careful man, I started with a #85 EZ open in stag. Next thing I know I owe 5 more GEC's by the end of the month.

    Nice knife though I love all mine.

    Great choice for a first GEC Woody. I started out with a #25 EO too.

    its not just that sodbuster thread, it is this whole section of the forum...in the past few months my interest and buying has changed from what it once was.
    before that, 75% of my collection was Buck and Benchmade with a few "oddballs" here and there. now ive added a couple puukkos, traded for a couple nice old slippies, bought two sodbusters, and now this knife.
    thank you all for refreshing my passion for knives...change is good

    well, i have some good news/bad news to report.....

    we were setting forms to pour a foundation today and got rained out. gonna short my paycheck a bit, but i was home to meet the mailman with my package.
    in this case, id call that good news. LOL

    when i opened my package, the dealer i ordered from sent me the wrong knife. well, actually it was the right #, just wrong blade. BUT when i told the wife about it her words were, and i quote "i guess if you want to, you can order another one"...
    GOOD NEWS!!!

    i emailed the dealer just to tell him about the mistake, and he replied with half an hour. hes willing to pay the shipping if i want to return it, but there is NO WAY im sending this
    little beauty back. i have an assortment of knives, and i do buy quality, but this knife is not only well made,it is stunning to look at. i love it....heck, i changed out of my loose fitting shorts i was wearing after a shower and put on a pair of blue jeans just so i could drop it in my front pocket.

    it snaps open and closed so briskly, with no side to side play...not that im suprised. the blade came from the factory plenty sharp, it will do for now, but im sure i could take it to a couple stones and make it sharper. i will in time...when i get done admiring it and actually use it enough that i decide it needs touched up. lol

    and now for some pics....im no photographer, so you will have to excuse the quality. they do this knife no justice.....
