    May not be the place, but the answer is that they took all the orders a couple months ago, but there will be ones up for sale on the sales threads as soon as people start receiving them.

    Does anyone know if the Maher and Grosch Custer Hunting knives are built on the same frame as the possibly upcoming 97?

    I think the lengths are different

    Thank you Kas99.

    You are correct. The M&G is 5 and 1/4 length, and 97 is “only” 4 and 3/4.

    I need a pair of 97’s in blue and emerald green bone.

    I think those M&G were made by Queen, not GEC.

    I just hope they can manage to not let the blade smack the back spring

    Hope there's some news from GEC this week about when the #14 TC Barlows will be shipping out.

    Me too. The Barlows have to be finished. I’d also love seeing a few pics of Lyle’s Lick Creek two blade.

    Some new production pictures are up. I’m kinda pumped about the cripple creek stag getting a shield.

    New design so I hope so too. More worried about the 86 because the 85's tend to have this problem, and the 86 looks similar.

    Looks similar to the Tiger Eye and Draft Beer Acrylics from the 2017 48 and 2016 Beer Scout. Color might be a bit different though.

    Actually it's oyster pearl Kirinite. A high quality acrylic brand for knife handles as I know. I hope I could get one...

    GEC gets a lot of the acrylics from Kirinite. But this one is going to be called Oyster Pearl Acrylic.

    Still wondering what a tulip shield is going to look like.

    Yeah definitely an interesting combination with the acrylic...will be curious to see how those end up. It doesn't seem like the shield will have a lot of contrast in that material but will find out I guess.
