    What was your first GEC

    My very first GEC was a more than generous Christmas gift from @Will Power, a 66 slim that's still one of my absolute favourites. My car seat swallowed it for a whole year but I found it again. :rolleyes: The first GEC I bought myself was this 73 jack, a tank of a knife.

    Homemade cider is great after yardwork. 17 °C outside today, nothing like winter at all.

    Thank you! I live in eastern Slovenia. Not much snow this winter, this was probably the 3rd time we had any. It's mostly gone already, barely covered the ground ... Same view from my balcony a few hours later

    What "Traditional Knife" are ya totin' today?

    Thanks, I too think the ones with the exposed rivets look better. And that old style punch! I'm having fun with another Wenger today, this time 2 numbers bigger though. Model 1908 soldier from 1943.

    Thanks Jack! Thank you Paul! I was pretty lucky getting this one, condition and money wise. Thank you! I think it should be the late 50s or 60s, because the background of the shield used to be red. Before that in the 50s they had a dark (sort of black-ish) background but were otherwise the same.

    "Old Knives"

    It's a peasent knife. This pattern, with various blade arrays, was common in Switzerland and parts of Germany and France. Even Victorinox and Wenger made very similar ones with horn scales.

    Do you use your GEC knives?

    I only have a few and I use all of them, even slightly modify them. Some will say it's sacrilige, I say who gives. They're mine, they bring me joy, that's the only important thing. :) My 73 is probably my biggest beater. It had that characteristic point which the 73 spay blades usually have...
