    No reason to not like the others too. The Alox just impressed me quite a bit more than expected. Before I actually tried one, I didn't think I'd like them nearly as much as I do.

    Still love GECs, Cases, Bucks, old Schrades..... etc.

    Methinks we will be seeing a lot of this one for a while, which bothers me not a whit. It's a comely knife.

    So, we finally meet! (BFC 2011 traditional)

    Initial impression and feeling is impressive since it's a while since I've held GEC. However, I've noticed that the edge hits the frame when you close the knife normally (slam it sorta, not guide it close). What do you guys think would be the best cure? Maybe just sharpen the blade enough that it's narrow enough to fit? What do you guys think?

    Also it seems that I have to lower the tip of the blade so that it sits little better inside the handle when closed.
    Also this knife screams patina.

    Today I am carrying my new to me Gec Cody Scout. Ebony handle with a big 'lo spear point blade. I think it's pretty cool.

    Not to step on Fes's toes, but around here I think they're called scimitars or steak scimitars. Often spelled cimeter.

    This one today


    I've tinkered with it a bit since this image was taken, smoothing and blending the covers in with the bolsters. The equal end pattern lends a strong argument for simplicity in a pocket knife, easy in the pocket and just enough depth to the frame, offering versatile grip.

    Sctreened is correct..its a scimitar?...they were sold by our oldest knife retailer here in NZ.(Victory knives)..they are Sheffield steel and cut really well...I contacted Victory as i was interested in the marking (electro vibro etch) they last used that mark in 1970.

    GEV...the wee knife is a custom by Cousin Jack...Ive taken to carrying this knife daily and its awesome..steel is 01
