    I still fully back the glitter gold punch nut for 2021! In the meantime this can serve in its place as a temporary substitute. Enjoy it Rachel. :)


    Thank you. Just my attempt to apply some of the things I've learned from being on the porch with some great neighbors. If we're all not having fun with the hobby then we're all doing it wrong.

    Whoops... there goes the resale value:D

    I'm not a fan of that bottle shield. :confused:
    But other than that, it looks like a great knife and is very handsome. :cool::thumbsup:
    Nice to see the old Crown Lifter etch is back, I like that too.

    I’m kind of with you on that, John. There’s something about the shape of the shield that I just don’t like very much. I love the idea of an #85 Crown Lifter, and I’ll probably try to get one or two (good luck with that, right? :rolleyes:), but something about the shield just seems off. Maybe it’s the way that it looks sort of like the classic Coke bottle shape, but not quite.

    GEC isn’t doing SFOs anymore… except when they do.

    I would LOVE some stag with that UN-X-LD shield. Hate they won't make more of it, I hope to pick some up secondarily!

    I think the only thing wrong with the shield is : It is turned in the wrong direction .

    I have a feeling my smooth bone 85 is going to become my most carried. Checks all the boxes for me, and i dig the shield.

    We want field reports on the geometry of the cap lifter.

    This is a 6 pack minimum type of test to be scientifically valid.

    Purely a matter of aesthetic opinion, but It looks right to me: narrow and wide parts of the shield follow the narrow and wide parts of the handle frame. When using the opener, the "bottle" will be more or less upwards. Otherwise all the cola/beer would spill out. ;)

    anyone else feel like the bottle opener should be on the pile side? I can understand when a secondary blade is desirable in that location, but the bottle opener isn't going to see as much use as a blade I imagine. It sure is gorgeous though, competing nail pulls aside.
