    Thanks Jack. The seller made a bold statement when I purchased it saying, "The GEC 73 is considered by many to be the perfect pocket knife, including me". I asked him why he felt that way and he gave quite a list of reasons. After owning it for just a short time I had to agree with him and have ever since.

    The 73 is probably my favorite two blade knife. The single blade version is great but my only user 73 is a two blade trapper.

    Thanks very much for the explanation Â:cool: One of the occasions when a joint venture turns out brilliantly, particularly admire the bolster. The whole knife is THE best thing I've seen on these pages for a very long time. There's astounding competition too but that knife, just dwarfs others :D

    All the very best, Will

    Now that I know this, it will be easier to keep Marilyn McCoo and her Fifth Dimension distinct from Kenny Rogers and his First Edition. I was wondering as I was typing, why the Fifth Edition.

    I was not kidding in that Ruby was the first thing that slithered up out of the deep recesses of my selective memory.
    Still love that stag handled beast, by the way!

    I finally bit the bullet on an alox cadet.
    It will always be second to my recruit and I don't find it to be more knife for the money, but I definitely like it.
    It's a great overall package.
    And the nail cleaning tip is easily converted into a very capable driver for small Phillips screws.
