    I like the wall st. well enough, but wasn't really craving this. But ordered one anyway because the ss just comes around so little. Took I think over two years since the last ss run of anything. Funny cause I can think of a half dozen other knives I would prefer at the same price right now. But I know those I can sleep on and they will still be available a month from now if I decide to buy.

    Here's mine. I like it! I know the chestnut can be soft, but hey? It's my favorite pattern.

    Mail call. Really like the wood, love the matte bolsters, feels nice in hand, very smooth opening and closing, has just a tick of up and down play.

    Beautiful knife but I’m shocked that I’m not warming to the pattern as much as I thought I would! Thought it would be a slam dunk for me for sure!

    I see 'em drop...
    I hem-and-haw for a while...
    and then just like that, they are gone!
    I obviously don't want one bad enough to pull the trigger.

    My last one that I have been waiting on. I hope I get a nice one. I am new to collecting GEC, so apparently I'm lucky to have been able to get a stainless steel knife, since they are not offered often.

    Between the 14's, the forum knives, and this knife, my wallet is screaming for mercy! It may be awhile before I can buy anything else.:(

    Don't forget to grab an 85 while they are around! Your wallet will hate me but you will be happy later :)

    Mine arrived today. I'll take picts later but it's a great pattern! A little side-to-side play but that's pretty standard for GEC.

    I got mine today as well. A little side to side play but nothing bad. You'd have to be looking for it. The knife opens and closes smoothly and the blade is centered but the bolsters are a bit rough even by GEC standards.

    Not if you include Northwoods knives.

    There are still some yet to release, so you may get lucky yet. Keep an eye out at the dealers listed on GEC's website (if you need the link I can email you, but some of the dealers are not BF supporters, so I cannot link it here).
