Just Received - GEC Congress

Postby Vince Roberts » Thu Jul 02, 2009 2:48 pm

Just got my "knife of the month" for July. I can't afford to spend much on knives right now but when you see something special it's really hard to pass it up. I think most of you know what I mean! :mrgreen:

I splurged on a GEC Abalone Congress - this one is #28 (out of 40 or 50 or so).

Gorgeous handle material, I tried to take a good pic, but of course it's much better when you can turn the knife and catch the light wtih those handle slabs, really wonderful. ::ds:: I also like how the Blade Etch has the "LVS ABALONE" incorporated into the Logo - don't think there are any other of the series that has that.

IMO this one was a very nice choice to add to my collection. Anyone else lucky enough to get one?
