Water/flow jets are nice, but a little slow in production of large volumes in comparison to laser.
Yeah can't believe these are not sold out, may have order another! Steven
The blades are in process!!
over at GEC they've got some in process photos of the 2012 Blade Forums Knife!
Are they done yet, are they done yet?
Looks great, can't wait, thanks to all involved in bringin' this years knife to fruition.

AWESOME!!! I wasn't expecting to see WIP pics.
ETA: Wire EDM is usually run in an electrolyte bath. This both keeps the part cool (no dimensional changes) and helps the process be more efficient at transferring the electric current which actually does the cutting. It does not matter how hard the metal is, EDM will cut it since it uses electricity to erode the metal away.

Freedom is NOT Free!!! THANK YOU to those who serve this GREAT country!!!
Yay, can't wait. So this will be pattern #74...
I saw that the blade number 8 stands for a muskrat clip, but this looks like a normal clip point to me. Can someone tell me the difference between the two? I thought a muskrat was a long, extreme clip.
I'm so glad I managed to pay for one of these!
Wow, this is going to be AWESOME!!! Thanks again to everyone that's bringing this thing to life, truly one of the best experiences I've had at BF yet.
Sweet! This is very exciting, ~P and Confucius. Thanks for posting.
... Still looking for a vorpal blade.

Oh man I can hardly wait, this one is going to be nice.
I really appreciate that GEC will take the time to give us some progress updates like these. Thanks P and Confucius for bringing the updates here for us.
Christmas is coming early this year! In that first pic, the blade looks HUGE! Me like!
I'm already searching out a good sheath for this beast. May just have to use a pocket pouch.
September/October is going to be very good. Have this one coming, plus the Case Lanny's Clips are due, and also have the Bladeforums Kershaw: All paid for!!!!
