    A sowbelly pushing 4" with a punch instead of a spey would really float my boat. On an existing frame? A single-spring, two-blade knife on the 98 frame would make me wet myself.

    I dream of a trapper made on their new 3-1/2" #44 gunstock frame. It would have good solid clip/spay blades, not the thin muskrat style. That would be such a sweet knife.

    If I'm dreaming up a GEC, right now it's a 25 with a FFG sheepsfoot main, and caplifter secondary. So a 25 Beer Scout. I would also love a 14 Beer Scout. And though I've never handled an 18, an 18 Beer Scout seems great too. I have a one track mind.

    If they make a sowbelly pattern, I'd certainly want one as a "Beerbelly" with caplifter in stainless.

    Say what?!! That is sweet.
    I know what 2 knives I am tearing apart for my next project.
    Can we see a closed pic please? I'd like to see how well that caplifter settles in there.

    I actually goofed and sent Glenn a caplifter with the nick on the wrong side, but he made it work anyway.
    Looks really tight, but it's actually quite easy to get at, and from the mark side.

    Here's a couple hand fulls of my Great Eastern collection. I apologize if once in awhile i'll make a sour comment in their regard. Lets face it....We are always the hardest on the ones we love the most.[​IMG]

    I don't know why cap-lifter / screwdriver blades aren't more Prevalent. They are about the most useful blade you can put on a pocket knife... besides of course a cutting blade.

    If we’re talking about knives we would like to see GEC make, I think it would be cool if they came out with a farm and field stockman in the 3 3/4 to 4 inch range on a serpentine frame with cap lifter instead of spey. Maybe in yellow delrin like the old Schrade and Camillus shadow/birdseyes. A good solid working knife. I think it might be a pretty popular one.

    #15 BOYS KNIFE- Does anyone know if the clip point blade will have a nail nick or long pull? Thanks!

    The GEC website had a few pictures of them stamped and ground down, they looked to be nail nicks.
    I was skeptical about the nail nick on the spear point 15s, I've come around to it though. They look very handsome and I can't wait for mine to ship :)

    Cool, I couldn't tell from the pics a saw. It looks like the spear points are getting the nail nick as well.

    I agree, but their time has passed. Now that you can get good beer in cans, I just don't buy bottles any more.

    When GEC finally does a run of Beer Scouts/Crown Lifters with clip blades the popularity is going to be off the charts.

    I agree, it will be as popular as the TC or NF barlows. Since I started collecting GEC (2 years) they haven't done a run with clip points. They have done a run of beer scouts in sheepsfoot and crown lifters in sheepsfoot. The problem I think is some dealers still have crown lifters in stock. I can only imagine how fast clip points will sell. I was able to score a radio knife with clip point and crown lifter on the secondary market it's a grail and is almost the perfect knife. Besides the covers...;)
