Gentalmen keep it clean. Your aim will help. Stand closer; it's shorter than you think!

Lol! I'm new to the forum and new to collecting vintage pocket knives. One of the many reasons I joined was to learn and get tips about cleaning and restoring knives. Needless to say...I thought this post was about an entirely different subject! :lol:

I want to cuss Great Eastern Cutlery. I want to cuss GEC for teasing their customers. I want TO CUSS GEC for putting one badge to four tubes ! Their best knives are produced in super low numbers to create crazy inflated prices. Harley Davidson did the same thing since 1982. Now Harley Davidson is in big trouble and Indian moto-sickles is the way to go with better tested quality moto-sickles. I want to cuss GEC for making too many two bladed knives , when they know most customers want single blades for easy opening. I want to cuss GEC for all those Tidioute knives with those stupid hot dog shields. I want to cuss GEC for not making all their knives fancy like the Northfield and the Northwoods knives, that they make for "Knives Ship For Free". I own 8 GEC knives , with many pre-orders being made right now. I signed up for #99s & #85s knives on Collector Knives. I was never notified. I have one arm and those knives would of been perfect for me. Now an #85 Tiger Maple wood easy open end sold for $200 on EBAY. I cuss GEC good on that one. I also bought 11 CASEXX knives and I joined the CASEXX Club. That will show them ! I cuss Great Eastern Cutlery for making too many brown knives and yellow knives that are 90% brown.

Oh, that darn GEC and their reprehensible behavior. Trying to make money like that. Shame, shame!

I've got an idea, Onearmbladejunkie, consider buying antique pocket knives. It's much less stressful. ::nod::

The reason GEC is not a manufacturing facility like Case and unable to produce the numbers necessary to meet demand, is the hands on old approach to quality.
The company produces great old patterns, they just can’t produce enough to suit demand. The dealers are responsible for sales, not GEC.
