    I had them etch it on the liner before they applied the slab. But I think he may have had a lawyer update the rules now.

    Great, now it will have lawyer talk all over the blade like a pistol.

    "Please read instruction manual carefully to avoid injuring yourself or others. This knife is equipped with a half stop for safety."

    :D

    Right before etching.... then they put the slabs on. You have no chance in showing a picture to disprove what I am saying.

    Of course not you can't prove a negative. Learned that in math class as a boy.

    Had the etch done per the rules but then paid a bit extra to have the etch polished off at the factory :p

    I'm such an idiot. I've read the description like a dozen times. I kept looking at the picture and trying to see the second blade or blade channel. Maybe it was all the other posts of past knives I got confused on? Anyway... single blade. :D

    Edit:
    Guess I missed this picture too?

    I’m gonna guess sometime this week or early next based on what GEC allows us to see in their pictures. As much as I’d like to have all 4 options, maybe 5 with ironwood, I’m glad these are limited to one per customer. It won’t keep all, but some greedy flipper paws off. Mine will not be sold, ever! The 77 spear is easily my absolute favorite pattern and unless the 86 has a spear/long pull option, it will likely stay that way.

    Listen guys, anyone who knows me on here well knows I'm not really a fan of micarta. But this particular run of natural linen look EXTREMELY handsome.

    Blackwood and Micarta are becoming the front-runners for me.
    I'm a sucker for smooth/thin handles (no squared off edges). :cool: :thumbsup:

    I'm with you... my top two as well. That micarta looks fantastic... may be my surprise favorite!

    My choice from the start, if available to me, is AB.

    Both the blackwood and micarta look great! I'm sure the two sawcut bones will also be nice. My last knife purchase was the two Waynorth Lambsfoot knives so I'm champing at the bit for whichever one I end up getting.

    Yes, I think I'd go Ironwood... then it's a coin toss between AB and Micarta at this point... assuming there's more than one side of the coin left when I'm up!

    Haha, so much speculation and second guessing myself, and they're not even ready! I can't take the pressure! :D
