The pull is easy, snap is great, the fit and finish are immaculate. I think I like the Kingwood better than the bone, maybe it’s the bolsters, I do like the stripes on that one. I had never seen this pattern before, they should produce a lot more of these.


I tend to think the Mavericks are something of a sleeper in the GEC line. I didn't pay close attention to them when they were first released & readily available. Regardless, it's a neat pattern for sure.

I have always liked the slimness of that little knife Q and the stag doesn't hurt a bit. ::nod:: ::nod:: ::tu::

Thanks, Floyd. I actually bought a couple of #13 Whips when the pattern was first released a couple of years ago. I really liked the design and the single Wharncliffe blade; but, the ones I got had very hard pulls and the slender frame just didn't give me enough to hold onto when I tried to open the blade, so I sold them. When this one came up for sale, though, I just couldn't resist since I wasn't planning to carry or use it anyway. As it turns out, however, this one has a much lighter pull. Now I have the dilemma of deciding whether or not to carry this one since I can actually open the blade without an opening tool. Tough call, but I expect it'll end up being a safe queen (like 99.9% of my collection). I always think I will use the knives I buy, but when I get them in hand I just can't seem to bring myself to "mar the perfection" if you know what I mean. ::undecided::

This GEC 828318 Dixie Stockman with Elderberry Jig Bone handles was a birthday gift from my lady friend. Yowza!

Jerry, I already seen this one a dozen times and I'm still not tired of seeing it. Happy for you and enjoy the knife and the thought behind it. ::tu:: ::tu::

Coming from someone who knows GEC knives very well, this is indeed high praise. I do not have a #93 'Ramsfoot', but i now think i should.

Both the GEC #93 Northfield and the Northwoods "Signal Jack"come with cocobolo handles. The Northwoods are more expensive. Is the cocobolo of higher quality on the Northwoods ?
