Jerry 1911's and the venerable .45 auto make me smile. Beautiful kabars as well.

I am always looking for GEC 81 stockmans and a GEC 33 whittler.

This may seem like an odd matching pair - a modern Northwoods Presidential paired with a 70+ year old Case Tested XX 06294. They have a lot in common: same size (4 1/4"), same frame type (equal end grooved bolsters), and spear master.

Good eye for spotting the similarities between those two beautiful knives from different makers and different eras. I guess it just proves that good traditional patterns are "traditional" for a reason. Good design never goes out of style.

Sweet pair RalphAlsip. Beautiful. Wow is all I can say. Incredible pair of knives, thanks for sharing, otherwise I would never see stuff like that old Case. And to me this screams the whole reason there is a GEC (or a Northwoods) is because Case quit making this kind of knife and left the door wide open for GEC to fill the niche. They did, and Northwoods is riding the same wave. Make a great knife like Case did a hundred years ago and they will sell. Guaranteed. My #15 Boys knife is the spitting image of my '65-69 Case 6235 1/2 Jack that Case doesn't make anymore. Almost the same frame and design. There are several copies of old patterns out there, more than coincidence could explain away.
