    They really are great blade shapes. Extremely useful.

    Some much needed vacation time , quality IPA’s mixed with quality time . This is what happens :oops::D
    To no effect of the above ;) Three of my #29’s thanks to some great dealers and Gec all have main blades that are flush at the half stop with some even including the secondary :thumbsup:

    Thanks Dylan, I thought the Indian River Jack (2014 - Queen) might be “the one” for me. It’s good, but has enough f&f issues that it’s not. Could have saved me a lot of cash if it had been.

    Funny thing, I looked back at my spreadsheet and it says I bought Presidentials on or around 5/18/14 and 4/12/15. Not sure if the run was split, but I believe I hemmed and hawed over the second one for a while - the seller site used to say how many of them were left in stock since they were not unique.

    Hope this isn’t too much of a derail - I know it really belongs elsewhere, but a little context from my POV.

    It’s always to good to find out sooner then later ;)
    Don’t know why but I noticed it within minutes of handling my first one. But have looked for it as my radar was on for my next arrivals :thumbsup:
    You just might have the only ones made by GEC with all 3 blades flush at the half stop:eek: who woulda thunk :D Personally never seen that before even on customs.
    Do you have a SFO or ?

    Very true, I've only seen that on a couple of vintage knives! I've got a "General Issue" in the Osage wood and am very impressed on all fronts; it also seems to have an incredible grind!:eek:

    I love my Osage wood although it has the weakest walk and talk on the main blade out of all my 29’s . Not a deal breaker but probably about a 4 pull and light on the close. From what I’ve seen most of the early releases being the Osage wood were pretty much the weakest on the walk and talk . But with that being said I bet since all 3 blades on yours are flush at the half stop Gec didn’t stop there and I’m guessing yours is about a 6 and a snappy one at that :)

    The main is a bit lighter than the secondary blades; about a 5 main and 6's on the other two. Very happy all round!:)

    Gec knocked these 29’s out of the park !
    Each run seemed to get better and better in the walk and talk area on the main blade . Fit and finish is remarkable on all of mine but I think my Maple leaf SFO is the best all around although it’s my favorite so I might be a little bias lol .

    For Friday my totes are a couple with black covers; a Remington jack from the early 1930s and a NYKCo 75th BSA anniversary (1985) scout by Schrade.:D

    I agree, the maple covers with the maple leaf is an awesome combination; they definitely hit a home run! ;)
