This is a great thread. I probably would not have considered picking up a Harness Jack, but after reading about their history and how Charlie had them made using the different leather punches I pulled the trigger on one of the few remaining.

Thanks Dave and Charlie.

Thanks Dave & Mike. I haven't had any problem with rust down here yet. We have central air and I keep a thin coat of oil on them. We were about ten miles from the destruction of Hurricane
Charley and have been lucky so far. A hit by a big one would have me worried.

How about a close up of Charlie's newest HJ's. :mrgreen: This run of knives was really well built from the examples I've seen. Good solid, stout action, great in hand old school feel, super jigging on the bone, the finest modern example of a working 1900's Harness Jack that I have held. They really went the extra mile on these! ::ds::

Gorgeous knives guys, thanks for sharing.

While I like many a Jack pattern, can't really say I have warmed up to the Harness variety. But I have to admit the Ebony version GEC did, as well as the Bone one, look so good I had to get one myself. GEC #85 RHJ in Ebony is enroute. Might swing the bone handled version come payday as well.

Alright, my #85 Harness Jack with Improved Punch came in last week and I got to say they are sweet as sweet can get.........

I already liked the #85 pattern after getting one of the regular versions in Cocobolo. But this Harness version just hits some of the right things for me.......

Image

Image

I also like the addition of the history/description they added to the packaging.......

Great slippie, and quickly became one of my favs from GEC.

I hope they do! The EO feature is nice looking, and downright usefull! "Pinching" a knife open can sometimes be really handy in a (wait for it :wink: . . . . . . . .) pinch! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
