    Who has them. The GEC #53 would include the Stockman, Cattle Baron, Muskrat, and
    Furtaker which do not have half-stops. The GEC #54 would include the Whittler and Big Jake which do have half-stops.

    ED, this was my gateway drug into GEC, as this burnt grizzly cut bone #54 Big Jack was my first ever GEC knife back in 2008. That big, pointy, sexy spear blade had me hooked!

    I have a couple. I actually like the pattern, it is big, comfortable to use, and makes for a reassuring heft in the pocket.

    #54 Big Jack in Desert Ironwood.

    #53 Moose in Ebony.

    My first exposure to this pattern was when I picked up this #54. I moved it along to fund something else and I regret it to this day but it is what it is.

    Love these big ones! This 53 Beaver Tail Furtaker Trapper was my 2nd GEC knife and my introduction to the 53/54 patterns. I will say they are quite addictive! :D

    Great stuff, everyone! It's such a great pattern for showing beautiful covers because of its good size and rectangular shape. Monk, those are some beautiful Roses! I had a 4-blade Cattle Baron in jigged yellow rose from 2010 . . . sure wish I still did! Now the only one I have left is a proto Cuban Stockman from 2011.

    Al, this photo just pointed out something to me that I hadn’t noticed before! The Stockman has opposing slanted bolsters and the Furtaker Trapper has parallel slanted bolsters! A very nice touch in the design department! :cool::D

    Thanks, Jeff! I remember that Yellow Rose Cattle Baron of yours. Welp, you got lots of other beauties... especially the Genuine Stag and Ram's Horn Cubans. Top shelf!
