    GEC has announced a new stockman pattern, the #82 Dixie. 4 1/8 inch, muskrat clip, wharnclifflish sheepfoot (what would you call that?) and spey. I am excited. Anyone else?

    I am sure the more techno-savvy will post links, etc.

    Very nice! Wish the joints were a little more sunken but other than that it looks mighty fine already!

    I'm on board with this one! I'm a sucker for a stockman, and I love the rounded bolsters on this one :)

    Yup, round bolsters and a muskrat clip sound great.

    I hate GEC! Here they go again costing me more money.

    Exactly. I like the way the muskrat rides low, and combined with rounded bolsters should make for a very pocket-friendly design. Depending upon cover material, I might be in for more than one.

    The Turkish clip is my favorite blade.

    I'll have to see how this one turns out. I love the choices in blades but at 4 1/8" it's little bigger knife than I generally like to carry.

    I'll definitely be on board with this one if my budget can stand it.

    I agree. It makes it easier to prevent a high-riding sheepsfoot. I like the spey and sheepscliffe on this setup too, it sure looks like a winner to me.

    This one is pushing my buttons already. For some reason, I held out when the 81 Abilene was released, but I think this one might have to join the herd. :thumbup:

    Count me out, as looking out for one in 440C! :thumbup: Round bolsters and low-riding blades are beckoning my wallet. :D

    I love it too. But 4 1/8" is too big for this cowboy. :-(

    I'm a big fan of the #81 and this one looks nice as well. Some nice brown jigged bone will suit me just fine or maybe GEC will finally break out the Butter & Molasses acrylic :eek:
