    LOL Yessir. I appreciate it! Candidly speaking, I had wanted one of those since seeing pics of them last year but I knew they wouldn't be cheap and had planned accordingly. I was...let's say, "late to the party in a timely fashion" on that auction. LOL

    I'm glad it was you who got it! It could have went for a lot more, I thought.

    I was able to grab the #12 SFA toothpick that CK had listed so I was happy about that, as I have none of that particular GEC pattern yet. I just love the GEC acrylics.

    Thank you! I am admittedly a little blown away by that price, though I'll say that it's probably because everyone is busy watching and drawing down on all the Beer Scout blood in the water. LOL
    I saw that #12, that was a beautiful piece, so congratulations are in order for sure.

    Thanks!

    We got lucky because the 12 and 97 are not the sexy GEC du jour, you are exactly correct! There will be some interesting auctions to watch in the next couple of days for sure!

    Are these auctions someplace special, or just on the "big site" ?

    @Quiet has got your answer. :thumbsup:

    And yeah, we got a couple good deals, relatively speaking, but for the most part, better limber up that checkbook!

    I saw an eskee zulu go for over 5.5 TIMES what it probably originally cost... assuming it was about $200 or so, new.

    I try to stay off there.... can't run with the big dogs....:rolleyes:

    I would have to agree that this is as apt a description as any!

    I am waiting for a Case Mini trapped in whiskey bone with cv steel to arrive. But orders from the US to Europe are a bit delayed. Expected delivery between 30th of September to 31st of December. Smh.

    Mmmh in a way ;) My last knife from America took from last week of MARCH to the first week of JULY to get to here in Scandiland :eek: Not very swift...

    Ordered another knife last week, Tracking has it shuttling around 'carrier facilities' ominously near Chicago airport- the site of the last knife's lengthy detention/quarantine :rolleyes:

    It really does. But the price makes up for it. Saved almost 25 bucks compared to if I bought it in the Netherlands.

    I just won the bid for a pretty decent 3 1/8” schrade cut senator whittler. Should be a good one.

    That does not inspire me with confidence, just bought a bone 1/2 whittler. Has to come half way around the planet.:(
