    Just got the Beavertail. Man, I like big knives, but that spey blade is like a spatula. I have no idea what I'd do with it besides flipping pancakes. Beautiful knife but I don't know if I'm gonna keep this one...

    Yeah buddy! We like that!

    If you don't love it, maybe I can buy a gold stripe and trade you a cluster of Schrades and a camp knife for it. I'd do that. Got a moving sale in my future anyway.

    It would be nice if GEC does a run of 21’s also.
    Since they are stamping out big boy clip blades it would be good time.

    I’m not interested in two blades, but that jigged wood looks outstanding.

    JD that big spey blade is a large scalpel. Work with it a bit and you'll fall in love with it.

    So Im checking the dealer site and GEC with with almost OCD....he contacted me and I definitely have baggsed a NF autumn bone...I even offered to pay up front!!
    Now I see they are completed....but to my utter horror...not up on his site yet...probably hasnt received them yet...but worse than that ...change of policy on international orders:mad:....have also had no response to my question on that....possibly going to need some shipping help from my U.S. buddies ( thats you guys:thumbsup::)) IF the deal goes through......
    Furthermore where do I get in line to give the lawmakers responsible for this trade retarding policy a good hard kick up their collective flabby backsides?...
    Cheers.
    This is in no way meant to be a criticism of the dealer who is an all round champion.

    I was going to hold off and just get a single blade, but that jigged cherry looked so good I went ahead and bought one with two blades. I imagine they’ll be using that same jigging on the single blade, but I didn’t want to risk it. :D

    @meako, I’m happy to help out if you need it. Feel free to send me a PM. :thumbsup:

    My jigged cherry was waiting for me when I got home from work. It is absolutely beautiful.

    However, do not drink whisky and handle one while tired from a long shift. I just sliced my middle finger so bad my wife had to help stop the bleeding. My finger slipped from the factory oil when I opened it the first time and got to the half stop.

    I looked at it and pondered getting stitches and asked her opinion. She told me “It is away from your stomach, you will live. We can glue it tomorrow”. She is a badass who grew up in the mountains of the Philippines.

    I hear ya. I reckon I have had more cuts caused by half stops than any other type of knife injury.

    I better practice my half stops on my 54 while I wait. It should be here in a couple of days. I sometimes use a table to open the blade the rest if the way. To close, I go full palm, no fingers and let the tail slap on the water.

    My thoughts exactly. I know it’s a big knife but the single blade seems much more my style. But I sure do love the jigging in the two blade... hopefully photos of the single blades start showing up soon.

    Buckshack, which 54 is that?
    I'd like to search one out.
