    I found reading the comments and debate very interesting and informative of how others think and their preferences (for example, widespread dislike for the standard GEC shields). Because so many people were passionate and vocal, you got a really informative narrative on those preferences. I also learned some new stuff.

    This type of market research is highly valuable to companies.

    When GEC starts producing Jobillo with federal shield as the standard option on all of its runs, instead of micarta and hotdog shield, I will look back on this thread and be grateful

    These are interesting ideas. The secret ballot is possible. I'm not certain the software will allow voting without allowing posting. But, that's an interesting idea and we'll look into it for next year should there be a next year.

    Too bad folks are asking to change the process. I think the comments are what lead to a well rounded final product. Looking at the 10 years of forum knives had turned out some nice knives - with the exception of the micarta TC.

    How long do y'all think the cutting edge will be -- i.e., the blade length minus the tang?

    Did you just start more voting for 2020 Ted? At the pace this knife went, we can have at least 6 more knives by the end of the year :D The convo hadn't really seriously started last year until after April o_O Going to be an empty feeling the rest of the year, 8+ months of forum knife building withdrawals. :oops:

    If we ever do a fixed blade, I'd like it to be something small like that. :thumbsup: Does Buck still make 'em?
    Vote for stacked leather!

    Small-ish and stacked leather would get my vote for a fixed blade forum knife, too. :thumbsup:

    I just got this GEC H60 which to me is a mini Bowie. I'll cast the first vote, YES. IMG_8405-1024x965.JPG

    Is that an H60 or an H10?

    Frankly, I'm glad it's pretty much done and over with... The Porch really drags me down when Forum Knife discussions are active.
