    Here's mine - arrived today. I measure it 3 7/8" closed. Clip blade has a pull of 6 1/2 on a scale of 1 to 10 while the Wharncliffe blade has a pull of 5 on the same scale. Overall a nice, tight, knife. The covers could be a bit darker but that's just my .02ยข .

    I was really hoping someone would make this one specific thread. Very nice knife, Ed. Your photos show it off well. Looking forward to seeing the photos pile up in this one.

    Can't wait til mine arrives. I remember on GEC's website the shades of bone varied a good bit. Looks like you got one of the lighter ones ED. Still, looks great!

    The pull on mine seems about the same on both blades, about a 5. Based on my previous experience with GECs, was worried it might be too hard to open, but both blades are perfect in my opinion. The springs sit slightly proud on both blades in the halfstop position but both are perfectly flush when fully open and fully closed. No blade rub, reasonably sharp, well finished, liked it so much I bought a second one today. Great design, great execution, a lot of knife for the money, thanks to all who made it happen.

    Great photos guys!
    Mine arrived today and went straight in my uniform pants pocket for Scouts this evening, just got back from our meeting. Too dark to get a halfway decent pic, I really need to get a bunch taken of arrivals for the last couple months.:rolleyes:

    I think GEC knocked it out of the park, this is a heavy duty trapper. I had to tighten my belt a notch after putting it in my pocket :D

    Mine came today also. It seems to be just about perfect. The blades are centered, the pull is very nice, and I can't find a gap anywhere. It's not very sharp, but that's no big deal. Thanks again to Kevin, Manfred, Ash, Gene, and everyone else involved in making this happen. It was a bit of a rough start this year with the change in ordering, but it sure did turn out fantastic!
