All you guys with these Lambsfoots are making jealous.
Anybody have an GECs in route? I might have one on the way.
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......
$2 Texas Ranger!
Here's another shot of my Cat Rop…..I mean Calf Roper.
at Ro, I
Here is a very nice GEC #29 Stockman/Humpback.
This showed up at the house the other day. Now if I can only find a locking folder with Osage Scales.
I should have a coffee house acrylic 29 to post in a couple days
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.
Here's GEC Bull Moose
You might be happier with a Dixie Possum Skinner in Elderberry though
You might be right.
I am wanting something in the spirit of the first sketch in this article.
Possum skinner it is. the possum skinner is the thinnest double blade I have ever seen. It's just about perfect for a food cutter EDC. I carry mine almost every day.
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.
Check out traditionalpocketknives.com Austin has both options and he has sold me a bunch of great GECs
This is the one I have. I would love a micarta to.
You're not wrong. I've also lusted a long time for a proper lambsfoot. This one checks off all the boxes.
Who has not? They also serve who stand and wait.
Given that the lambsfoot has been a largely unknown pattern in America save for the past couple of years, I'd say most people.
GEC 29 Bloodwood
Now those are some great pics.
I hope to have a snake wood 29 here mid next week.
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.
GEC #15 Huckleberry Boys Knife.
Thanks to @Wasp for pointing this deal out for me to pick up!
Like a moth to a flame, I'm a sucker to a glow knife Lol!
Very cool. Glad I could help. The 15s are an elegant bunch for EDC. Enjoy.
29 maple series
They did really good with these. I swear I didn't even want one it originally.
Do you realize what you just did with that great photo shoot of your Possum Skinner? Yep. put me right over the edge, it did. I now have an Elderberry on the way.
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.
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.
True, isn't it ... really nice pics recently, Wasp .. got a new camera?
You'll love it. Very elegant and usable.
No, just my phone. My apple took way better pictures.
How do you like it?
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.
I am a smart GEC user..
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.
Nice thin little knife with lots of blade and good looks to boot. Congratulations.
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.
You are sure right about that ,Wasp. See here, somebody else likes looking at that Elderberry.
My Possum Skinner about to take on my Largemouth Bass,fresh caught this morning.
Nice knife and fish! Hopefully I'll have a 77 to post in the next week or so.
