There seems to be roughly two schools of thought separating GEC and Case knives: “almost flawless” was one “negative” term used to describe GEC knives. I’d go so far as to say that the best of anything is almost flawless, and for Case, “well it’s cheap.“

I would rate it 9 out of 10 for that run. You might find an individual knife that is an actual 10. I have a 97 that I believe is a 10, but of course that’s subjective. In terms of frequent carry the 44 is hard to beat. Let me know what you think of the pulls.

Jeff was so thoughtful to mod the blade and handle. I’m very grateful.
