    Yeah that's what I'm worried about...I can't find out anything (not that it's any of my business I understand that) but would like to send well wishes if needed. It would have been Chris attending/organizing the Blade show booth.
    I know something is up I just don't know what. I talked to Chris maybe 3 weeks ago now and ordered a replacement tube but haven't seen it yet and that is about the time the production photos stopped showing up as I would normally expect during the process.
    I just hope she is ok.

    Seems like these might be connected?

    Well said, and echoed. She will be missed. Hoping she can return sometime in good health.

    Maybe a GEC CT Barlow or similar special edition sold at a premium if funds would help her? I dont want to invade her privacy, so thats just a brainstorm idea.

    Prayers to Chris Tucker, she was very nice to talk to or email, and she has great penmanship.

    Donna and I wish Chris all the best and pray for her to regain her health. We both have spent time enjoying her company over the last several Rendezvous's and will miss her. Get well soon Chris!

    Isn't it true that she is the one who hand-wrote all those tube cap labels all those years, right up until, what, the 71 Bull Nose run last year? I know she was the "customer service rep" but I think she did much much more, I'm sure above her pay grade. Best wishes to Chris and the Tucker family.

    Pam and I wish Chris all the best and pray for her health issues what ever they may be. Chris was the first face we saw when we attended our first Rendezvous in 2015. We both have enjoyed her company at every Rendezvous since and will miss her. I know she is an extremely important part of the Great Eastern Cutlery operation. As much as we will all miss her, I know she will be sorely missed by Bill and the rest of her coworkers. Get well soon Chris!

    For over a month ,I have been begging GEC to make a #86 smooth oily creek bone knife with a guitar shield in single blade. 4/12/2019 "Rock Around the Clock" is 65 years old. I just read that the GEC#93 Tidioute knife will be in natural Oily Creek Bone. Guitar shield or not , I am truly thankful. That #93 Ram's Foot knife will look killer in Natural Oily Creek bone !

    Good for GEC! While I'm not really crazy about the oily creek bone, it's refreshing seeing GEC doing something different for the Tidioutes, instead of going with the same old standards.
