    What exactly is kingswood? Has it been used before?

    I’ve seen kingwood on wooden recorders and flutes...made for a nice instrument from what I recall. Never handled a knife with kingwood though. Here’s a picture I found of a previous GEC run with kingwood. Looks nice![​IMG]

    Kingwood is nice but, I'm not sure how well it will show on such a tiny piece of handle.
    Here's my 98 camp knife in Kingwood. Plenty of real estate on this knife to show it off well.

    This is a #62 Maverick in Kingwood. It has a pretty striking grain pattern... lots of contrast, much like cocobolo...

    I can relate to that it means you really do want one. :)

    I'm fairly new to GEC drops but if this #19 is a larger run can we expect to see it in stock at dealers for a few hours at least? Just curious

    It’s hard to say but I wouldn’t count on it. The best approach is to reserve any GEC knife that you want as soon as humanly possible.

    Do you know how big the run was for the 23's, 97's, chain 15's, and 38's? They are still hanging around at dealers.

    I'm sorry. I don't. I don't really buy a lot of GEC's and therefore I don't follow them as closely as many others do. I've just been around long enough to know that when I want one I better not lollygag getting one reserved.

    There's a reasonable chance that the #19's will be readily available for a few days. I'm just saying don't count on it.

    The #97 run was huge (by current standards) to my understanding. Like, 5000+ #97s were made.

    Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis) is a Rosewood from Brazil. Same genus as all the other true Rosewoods.

    The coral Micarta is looking pretty nice! I feel like this knife will be too small for a daily carry but I reserved one anyway. I'm glad the Micarta is darker in color, I've seen some red coral scales that almost looked pinkish for some other brands.

    At least that shield looks better on the #19 than it did on the #73 or the #74.

    Looks nice, I hope everyone who wants one gets one. I’m bowing out.

    The badge has become the new hot dog. I like the badge shield, but I would rather see a variety of shields used.

    I agree.
    If they are going to pick one shield to use over and over, I'd prefer it to be the standard Tidioute shield.
    But like you, and many others i'm sure, I would like to see more variety.

    With such difficulties to get a knife, the shield pattern is secondary...
