    Same here! I have no clue how long it will take to get here. It's a shame - it started its journey 35 miles from me, travelled to Germany, just to turn around and come back. I asked if GEC could just keep one there for me to pick up. Nope - understably so.

    I'll be excited to finally get it either way.

    Here are the 92s I've added to my collection since I posted the group shot. I am extremely grateful to the gentleman who sold me the JBF Champlin;). That is one I never thought I'd get!

    I'm hoping the German SFO gets here soon, and if I'm lucky, I'll come across the 2 older ones I still lack...then I can take a break! Ha ha.

    I have nothing but admiration for your dogged approach towards the collection of this pattern. Your collection and Jeff's (@black mamba) collection of 53s/54s(is it both?) is hugely inspirational and I applaud your efforts.

    Do you aspire to collect all the Northwoods variants as well?

    Found a dealer last week that had 5 or 6 of these baby’s left and was able to go threw the pictures and pick this one.
    Very happy as I just pulled it out of the tube. Wanted thinner covers and most importantly matching covers and I got it with this one with a bonus of centered blades . Feels great in hand with no sharp edges and beautiful chocolate and Carmel colors that I love !
    Picking your stag IMO is the only way to go as everyone’s taste is different.
    I’m glad I gave this 92 in Stag one more shot :thumbsup:

    No, I graduated in 1979 in Greenville. Too hot that close to the coast.:)

    Your Sambar 92 is nicely imaged, Bill, capturing its’ beauty.

    Thanks Dylan! I do think Jeff's collection far exceeds mine, and I think there's a 25 and TC barlow collection that also puts mine to shame. I'm very proud of it though, and wouldn't trade it for any of the aforementioned ones.

    I'm not planning on collecting the Ocoees (or Talons for that matter) per se, but I certainly won't pass up a good deal on them, or rule out collecting them altogether. If I get the blue sawcut to add to my giraffe bone, I'd feel pretty satisfied re: the Northwoods

    My primary focus is on the two blade Eurekas though. I don't want to start another collection, or expand what I have until I feel it's complete.

    The way I feel right now, I doubt I'll collect anything else after my 2 blade Eurekas, and just stick with the haphazard acquisitions of whichever new releases strike my fancy.

    No mail today, but that didn't stop me from getting a new knife. Made the trip to Titusville, and got myself another camel bone 92. This is a (S)tore model, and I cannot figure out why, except maybe there's a small scuff on the blade spine that looks like it accidentally bumped a belt...I'm really not sure.

    Either way, it's gonna get a patina and be carried and used a lot.

    unfortunately for me, a "trip to Titusville" is not practical... it's almost 1300 miles from here.

    .... but, I can get to the Southfork Ranch, where JR Ewing lived, in about 11 minutes. :cool:

    carried my 92 today alongside a La Combre. Such a good knife! Cut some chicken thighs for fajitas and made quick work of them, too.

    It's out of character for me to go this big on one pattern, however a 2 blade Jack really speaks to me.

    I was very fortunate to snag this guy today on the exchange. Can’t wait to see it in person, one of the most beautiful knives I have seen. I think I’ve stumbled and fallen down the GEC hole now.[​IMG]
