Fixed that. I would love to add more KSF stag to the pile. Forrest, Bullet and Burnside I covet. Thanks for all the comments, I'm just the caretaker of these currently, huge thanks to GEC, KSF andof course Dave Shirley for starting NORTHWOODS. There is a great interview on the KSF blog with Mr. Shirley about NW. Here is a link:

Wow Robobus, killing me, who wouldn't love to own that line up? Love a good Northwoods and when they are sporting great stag like those, well then it's a thing to behold. Those are A+ grade antlers man. Congrats. Love the Freemonts and the Bear Lake. Sweet.

Here's another one of my favorite GEC knives...#61 in American Elk...that will probably be going on the eBay auction block next Sunday. So, all you GEC fanatics might want to take notice (my auctions always start at $9.99 with no reserve).

Another favorite is this American Elk Wharncliffe #72 (which is currently listed on my eBay site).

Question is: how many GECs will I have to sell in order to pay for my new solar water heater?

Q, i'm going for the elk 61, likely along with 27 other AAPK'ers. It is a great pattern and the elk antler has a mammoth look to it. Deep pockets are gunna be needed. What a smart looking knife.

Hard to pick a favorite, but this one is high on my list. Was one of my 1st GEC purchases.

Very nice. Those Acorn SS ones are getting hard to find.

Hmmm. Good question, you must be very pragmatic to consider selling these beauties for utilities. hawaiienergy.com says with rebates it will take 2k to purchase. I think these will sell in the $3-500 range, possibly more as they just do not come up for sale. My answer is 5 stainless elk GEC.

Interestingly, that's exactly the number (5) I have dedicated, i.e., committed to sacrifice, for this project....but I can see I'm already being optimistic in that regard. My #48 just sold for $250...which is a nice start and I ain't complainin'....now, if only I had ten more just like it.

Thank you!

Got a #15 for my second.
I am 100% sure that this is not my last GEC.
