    Ordered an acrylic today. Got a Knife Connection email while standing in line at our Friday burrito stand, still a few left when I got back to the shop. I think it will be really handy for me. Not cheap, but cheaper than they'll be on Ebay in a couple weeks... ;)

    I think trying to buy a new release from GEC that you actually want feels kinda like trying to win an Ebay auction back in the dial-up days.... :D

    Thank you. To think that I only wanted one GEC too. Now I only want a #77 but I know that probably won't happen but I will be comfortable in stopping here with what GECS I have. I don't plan on just letting these sit in the drawer like some other knives I have because soon I start think," why did I buy them?" I could have been eating steak instead of hamburger.;)

    @HoustonB77 Dang dude, I’m envious of your GEC Army! You got all the right flavors! :dblthumb:
    :35:

    I know your thread is for GEC folders, but i’m feeling a bit rebellious and am going to throw a wrench in it with a GEC fixed blade lol! :D:D

    Where is the report button lol. I'll allow a GEC fixed blade just this one time. :)

    In all seriousness that's a great looking knife. And yes sr my collection is growing pretty rapidly. I might have ordered a possum skinner today :)

    I love it. It’s weight to size ratio is off the charts! Super light and barely noticeable in the pocket. The Large CK sheath is perfect for it.

    It’s not a thick stock knife, so it will still cut well when not real sharp.
    Love it in the kitchen! :dblthumb:

    Pemberton's are very unappreciated imo. I know its a smaller knife, but they are so nice.

    I surely agree with you. I find that 90 percent of the time, that size knife is all I need. It has fantastic walk and talk and good solid pulls so I feel quite safe in using it. It's a go anywhere knife that is very well made.

    I think that's the one I was telling @HoustonB77 about. Isn't it like the Dixie Possum Skinner but with another blade (basically)? How do you like it? Looks classic!

    Well,it went right from the mailbox and right into my pocket if that tells you anything. It really is a well made knife.It has the feel of confidence in the hand with the weight and just enough length to give a secure grip.It's built tough. I'll have to set up and take a picture with the three blades open.There is nothing not to like about this knife.

    I'm really enjoying this thread. I don't collect but have a fondness for old school folder patterns.

    This one looks like the one George Mallory carried on Everest. For some reason, I find that interesting.

    Good eye. That's a lambsfoot knife, a very English pattern. It's no coincidence that it looks like Mallory's. Mallory carried a lambsfoot, and this knife was designed to be an archetypical representation of the pattern.

    The micarta 93 has become my workhorse. It is great for cutting up my lunch and any other food related job.

    Touched up my 06 on a True Hard Arkansas stone, today. A great small knife! Has become my favourite pencil sharpener... and no, you may not borrow it to break down those cardboard boxes.
