Yes, yes and definitely yes let’s try something different.
GEC..98 frame.....stockman or camp knife rerun?
What about going a completely different direction and getting a Benchmade Proper with wood scales? Benchmade is a long-time supporter of BF, I believe. The Proper always strikes me as looking like a classic pattern that I just hadn't come across before.

Sign me up... I'm in...
That's the one brand I won't buy from.
I would not be opposed to this.
I'm in for whatever the forum decides.
For something different, has anyone ever thought about some kind of fixed blade from Dexter Russell? They have a selection of traditional fixed blades in excellent carbon steel usually sell for less than $30. Does anyone have any Intel on whether they'd even consider an SFO? I think it would be really special to get a forum knife from one of THE traditional American cutlery firms.
A lambsfoot from wright and son would be something
Case Copperhead with nicely jigged bone handles...... Since Case is running Copperheads this year they might run 400-500 for us??......
I thought GEC stopped doing SFO's, in part because of the Covid Pan(ic)demic?
The guy at Buck who handled SFO's resigned over a year ago, so other than what the Custom Shop modifications are, nothing special from them, at least for the time being. (Yeah, that is putting the hurt on SK Blades and C&C who specialize in SFO Bucks.)
Case didn't/wouldn't talk to us because any order would be "too small".
Has the new S&M started production?
If so, how is their quality?
Do/Would they even have the manufacturing capacity to do a Forum Knife plus their regular production?
If there is a 2021 Forum Knife, I'm out on budgetary reasons, anyway, no matter what it is, or by whom.
No? You have had bad experiences from them?
There is a lot of negative history attached to the company in my opinion, so I'd rather not own any of their products.
If we DID get GEC to agree to do it, we'd have to double our order, to allow for all the newbie flippers. They'd buy em all.....

Alber’s knife is a great idea!!
It is now time for my annual request for the Bladeforums knife to be a Whaler.
Now that is done. I'm in if we are able to make anything happen this year. The 2020 turned out to be something pretty special. Every year has been interesting at least. May the tradition continue.
Eric Albers has already done one forum knife, plus an unofficial forum knife on top of that. I own both and they are exceptional! I vote Eric if he’s willing.
If not, it’s Rachel’s year for a PunchNut!
You all have good taste.
Count me as a "yes".
They're not up to it anymore unfortunately
I like the gec punch nut idea or a 3.5" improved trapper with the nicks on the correct side (mark)
