    Both the 85s, and 38 whittlers are popular patterns. Bill said he wanted to increase production, no better time than now ;)

    I’m the one sitting on the back about to fall out.

    Aren’t those on the ship the ones “on board” for a new knife? Me, I’m on the pier on “stand by.” Everyone else is under the water, “all wet.”

    In the spirit of Sunday Stockman, I’d really like to see GEC make a 3 5/8”-3 3/4” equal end serpentine pattern with square bolsters. Something that fills the void between the 66 and 81/82’s.
    It’d be a convenient frame for a Texas jack too :)
    I think pattern number 67 is open! Slightly bigger than the 66, mirroring the 81/82.

    Now that we have a coke bottle shield, i can only imagine a coke bottle pattern with the coke bottle shield. Might as well go ahead and add a bottle opener while were at it.

    3¾ inch sowbelly? Would that work? That is what I have been lobbying for.

    I think a lot of us would like a sowbelly stockman

    I have been waiting for a gec sowbelly. Wondering if they will ever make one. I’d prefer a 3&7/8” myself. But now I am splitting hairs...

    allways a bunch of squealing when someone mentions serpentine stockmans with square bolsters.

    I would really like to see a sowbelly too! But I also want a smaller square bolster and it would be a good opportunity to fill the size gap between the others.

    Yes, that would be great!

    For me, recently, this has been GEC greatest hits.. Viper, 15's, 85, 38... 77 has to be coming up.

    In a perfect world I would ask gec to make it with a wharncliff instead of sheepsfoot too...just to be extra picky. Here is a custom Nowland that I stole the pic from online. 785AAD17-B616-4134-9391-842260BADD44.jpeg

    I have a Case CV mini trapper in a shopping cart, so as soon as I order it GEC will be announcing the new mini trapper pattern, I will probably wait until early March and expect an April arrival of the new GEC mini trapper.

    That would be great to see a GEC mini trapper. Aw, go ahead and order that Case anyway, you can never have too many mini trappers! ;):thumbsup:

    Just a quick pause for one of our members that were truly excitable and loved the hobby. Kenny Hill (onearmbladenut) has passed.

    I don't want to say anything that is not completely accurate and only heard second-hand. But thought a moment for those that are believers to request calm and solace for his family would be appreciated.
