How long after a shipment blog post like that do they start popping up on retailers? I've been casually trying to figure out how to be in the right place at the right time for a couple months.

My snakewood White Owl is one of my most favorite traditionals, GEC or otherwise.

I've come to accept the bail on it, although I'd prefer it be without one. And evidently I'm in the minority on this, but I think they look fantastic with clips. I'm in on all of these 68s, no doubt.

I’m sure this has come up before, but I didn’t find anything in the search. Do y’all do anything with your pins? I’ve thought about doing something off and on, but haven’t come up with anything yet.

Nice collection of pins there. I’m jealous of your Farm & Field pins. I’ve got a bunch of F&F knives, and never got a single pin. 😁

I had all mine out a while back, planning on taking a photo and maybe starting a thread, but I never got around to either. (I don’t know if it’s actually a thread-worthy topic, but I find ‘em interesting.)

My inner curmudgeon is irritated with how GEC is conducting its release news. I very much prefer the days where they announced the run in its entirety (for the most part) and we get to discuss it all in one place. With how things are now, we are left to speculate and we end up with multiple threads that either have to be merged or edited to accommodate the news as we get it.

It used to be much cleaner.

Anyway, it doesn't say anything about a bail on the White Owls. It will be interesting if they come with one or not. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing a blood red jigged bone on these - it feel like it's been a spell since they have run that material.

I don’t know, I kind of miss the days where we didn’t need a new thread for every GEC run. 🙄😉

Certainly agree they wear a Clip very well, but in the early days they were offered with Spear too. I foolishly got together a little collection of WOs only with Clips and missed the Spears. Pining for one, and I don't see any ever offered on the Exchange or for trades. The Spear by its shape, sits down very sleekly in the well of the knife too.

Thanks, Will

I actually prefer nail over long pull, but… more importantly…

that knife is incredible! Looks like an Angus Jack, with the bolster from the forum knife, with great jigged scales! Did you do that yourself?
LOL, I was thinking he ruined two knives. It is Halloween season, Frankenstein knife.😉

No sir. GEC did that one. I figured folks would’ve known by now. I’m usually late to all the info parties.

Shields on Barlows…are a no go! Just my humble opinion. If that is a real knife it’s a looker. Minus the shield. Killer jigging!!!

I don't know if you can mention other knife forum names here?

I believe it is also a forum knife.
Yep just checked out the “other knife forum.” They have this as their forum knife this year…that jigging is soooo nice! I was just thinking how nice our knife would be with a big ol coping secondary blade…
