Congrats on your new lockback!

I love mine. The jigged bocote is a really nice handle material for a user, as I'm sure their bone is, too!

Yeah, when I first saw it I thought it was smooth, but still a good pic.
I like the looks of this pattern, but I'm stuck on the 73's, Hows the luck up, or the walk & talk on these knives?
Thanks

It doesn't snap quite like typical GECs, but it does have some walk & talk to it. The blade swings pretty freely, but it's solid once it's locked into place. It snaps closed once it gets to about 35-40 degrees, but I don't worry about cutting a finger off like I sometimes do with my 25. I think they got the action right for a lockback.

Ya'll talked me into one!
I'm really enjoying it too. The spring is not as hard on my nails and it's surprising light in the pocket.

Monk,

Wow, what a gorgeous collection! That Burnt Orange, combined with the "bomb shield", is awesome!

I dream of winning the lottery so I can have one of everything GEC releases ......... :D
