Thanks Kj :D
I'm just getting into Gec's, but am definitely hooked!!!! Currently only have the 43 and a 15 boys knife, but 3 more in the mail as we speak ::groove::
I will reach the higher amounts soon enough ::nod::
Ive been through a lot of production knife companies and there's only a couple I've been happy with in regards to fit n finish, Gec being one and for the price and variation of models/handle materials etc, it's an all round win from me.... Look forward to learning more and more and growing the collection ::tu::

Kj, I love that saber ground spear on that knife. Keep me in mind if that one ever goes on sale! :D

O.K., for now it is a keeper. This was an SFO for Mike Latham. You had to choose when reserving: full flat grind or saber grind. Most chose the FFG.

Roland,

That's because my listing isn't live yet...it's scheduled to go live on Sunday (although I do have it listed in the "Knives for Sale or Trade" forum here on AAPK just in case a member would rather buy it right away instead of trying to score it for less at auction).

I just started collecting GEC’s last year. Here is the entire collection so far. I have Roland to thank for several of these. Gino for a few and Randy for the red TC Barlow.
Roland has been a big help and I can’t thank him enough, he told me about how the early reserves work and that has paid off nicely. Really satisfied w/ the quality and classic tradition of these pocket knives.

Wow, for one year of GEC collecting you have done very well. GEC keeps turning out great patterns, superbly executed so many of us have trouble not continuing to buy more. Likely Ssk you will have a few more by the end of 2019. Choose carefully because one of every variation of every release would be rather expensive.
