    Just ordered a #29 Tidioute - Stockyard Whittler - Osage Orange

    I go on ebay once in a while and look for a lockblade with Osage Scales. Not really looking to buy anything else at this time, I'm kinda of all knifed up as it were................Well I didn't find one but the Stockyard Whittler popped up. I'm a sucker for Osage.....

    I found the knife at knivesshipfree and it's on its way to me......

    This is the only GEC I have been genuinely annoyed to have missed. Been looking for the right lambsfoot for like 15 years :)

    Theyre still out there but you'll pay about $90 over to get one. Very nice blade though.

    Looking to pick up a GEC for my Nessmuk trio.

    That would be a stag or jigged bone #88 #81 Bull Moose, right?

    Open to suggestions.

    OK, I’m convinced. #82 Dixie Possum Skinner it is!

    Not going to skin any possums, though, even though I am down in Dixie. I like possums. They eat ticks. Lots and lots of ticks.

    You're not wrong. I've also lusted a long time for a proper lambsfoot. This one checks off all the boxes.

    Given that the lambsfoot has been a largely unknown pattern in America save for the past couple of years, I'd say most people.

    Twas a tough call, I really wanted a snakewood but missed three drops due to sleeping...literally. But I decided the bloodwood was more my style. Holy crap I have style?

    Congrats on the Acrylic SFO and Snakewood. We need some pictures that showcase that acrylic.

    if it is not too much to ask, can someone explain quickly if there is pattern in how often or when certain models are produced?

    the 43 oregon trapper in micarta is the one I would get...any recommendations where or what to watch to know when it is going to get produced next? thank you!

    The more I use it, the more I love my GEC Dixie Stockman but I am patiently waiting for my Elderberry Possum skinner to get here too, thanks to Wasp's great photos of his. DSC_1012 (3).JPG

    Nope. The owner of GEC is a knife nut. From what I can tell he's living the dream of "If I owned a knife company I'd make _______ …" He dances to his own tune. Guy has a genuine love of knives, and he makes whatever he wants and goes wherever his muse leads him, even if it doesn't make sense to the rest of us.

    It is a beautiful knife that had a crap blunt grind for the last 1/2" at the tip.

    I'm still a bit sore I had to put 2 hours in to fix the grind. Maybe I should have sent it back but I didn't expect a company with a great reputation to screw it up so badly.

    Now it's beautiful and it cuts freestanding hair at around 35° included.

    The fit and finish are really nice. The large handle is spot on for my large hands. Walk and talk are getting smoother as I use it.

    That's weird about the grind. I've bought a ton and they have all been spot on. Glad you got it straightened out.

    My Possum Skinner arrived today in the mail and I am purely happy with it. This and the Dixie Stockman will be going back and forth. Sorry for the picture, looks like my camera picks up even the lint on the knife. DSC_1029 (2).JPG

    Thank you there Mr. Wasp. I was hoping you would catch my picture. Your picture, after all, inspired me. You should have seen my wife's pretty blue eyes when I took it from it's cocoon. It got a big Wow out of her.

    Hard not to appreciate. I'm telling you that elderberry is hard to appreciate nearly as much in photos as it is in person. A lot of GECs are that way actually.

    Nice knife and fish! Hopefully I'll have a 77 to post in the next week or so.
