I just like to put the first marks on the knife myself
Does the sucker rod wood smell like crude, or like motor oil? In my experience, heavier fractions, like #6 can smell pretty funky.
Mine had one side of one bolster that had several rub marks in its satin finish. Mine will be a user, and I already knew this finish is more prone to these kind of marks, so it made little difference to me.
More like gun oil.
Definitely not motor oil; that's coming from a 20 year mechanic.
I've never smelled true crude oil though so I can't really speak to that.
To me, it smells like every other GEC I have.
Like the oil bath they give every knife to flush out some of the crud.
Oily creek bone!
I think that'll be the last I get of this pattern...
Unless I stumble upon a forum knife!
Got mine today. It does smell like oil. An Oilfield Jack that smells like oil
I got a button! Did everybody? Or did I just luck out? I never got a button before.
The "PPP" is facing the right way (unreversed? reversedreverse? ) .The reversed ones are kind of cool
Its a big, chunky, hunk of jack knife. Its pretty close in size to the #71 Bull Nose. A little thicker, a little heavier and a tiny bit taller.
I stuck it in my jeans pocket and carried around today. It carries fine for such a big knife.
The ricasso is prominent when closed. I thought some sunken joints would have been nice, then inspiration struck. GEC should put a copperhead bolster on this puppy. It would blend the ricasso's better and I certainly have to buy one since I like the copperhead design.
This a nice knife. The sucker rod is interesting. I'm pleased. Well done GEC
I like "TIDIOUTE" stamped into the shield!! It livens up the look!
I can appreciate your fondness of this shield and all that much more respect in your profession using such tools. That is why I would never carry or own this knife with that shield. Too much respect for guys like you for your talent.
I agree Charlie, wish all of the wrenches were labeled.
I'm sure GEC only marks the shields that do not require surface grinding/sanding! They do not do this to the oily bone because the bone finish will disappear! So they can mark rhe shield with out risking the stamping!
On the micartas, they do a lot of sanding, so the letters risk getting sanded off!
What a great knife I’m really liking mine.
I’m guilty of having it for a week or so without being in my pocket but that will change Saturday
Looks like you got some good grain on that one. Nice coloration.
It does have some nice character
Mine definitely doesn’t , smells just like all my other GEC’s when you pop the tube and actually love it lol.
Button here !
Love the sucker rod wood and this pattern and knife
