I agree the Fayette is one of the best for in hand feel.
I think the term "run up" refers to the portion of tang that runs up to meet the blade spine to make the corner that sticks up when blade is closed.
I think you are referring to the meeting of spring with blade spine and for this i have never heard any specific name for this.
Maybe a knife mechanic might know the correct name ?

Another member told me it was called that. But I don’t know. It seems there is no rock solid term for that, which is odd. I guess we can make our own name or acronym for it. They way I have trouble finding the right words lately I guess I will start with “ouoyktt”. Which stands for “oh,uhm,oh,you,know,that,thing”.
I’m not married to that, so I will entertain suggestions.

A couple of great pickups Mark! I think anybody that was able to get anything out of that madness of a drop should feel very lucky. ::tu::

Thanks Greg. It was an interesting experience. I found it very frustrating. I gave up shopping in stores at Christmas time for the same reason, I find it frustrating. I am pleased with the knives. The Fayette jack surprised me. I love that knife and here I thought I was settling.

I recently got this #81 Moose in amber bone, my first GEC knife. I guess a lot of people today do not care for the Moose pattern, but I have a few and like them mostly because of the large size and blade arrangement.

I bought a lot of 75 knives a couple of months ago off Ebay. The average cost came out to be 3.67 per knife. It was packed in 4 bags and I had only opened one bag. The first bag had some pretty decent knives. I decided to wait to unveil the others, at a later time. Tonight I got to worrying if any celluloid knives were in the bags (none were). I opened the remainder. There were a lot of Buck, Schrade, Parker Japan with nice bone, Winchester, Remington, a nice K-Bar USA. Many newer China made...many USA; but, all were in great shape; a couple of knives missing shields. One of the best lots of knives I've picked up. The guy that had this collection had a pretty good eye for decent knives. Most were not high dollar knives; although, many are $15-$20 knives. A nice Military issue Camillus. But...this one shocked me to find!

Just got my Pemberton w/ the smooth white bone from Traditional Pocketknives. I like white bone knives almost as much as green knives. This one is really nice looking.

It’s really a very nice knife. Fit and finish are great, the pull is just what you expect on a GEC knife.
The stags are hitting the dealers right now. Had an email tonight and they sold 20 in no time. CK informs me that tomorrow they will be sending out emails for people that reserved to choose their knife. Then they will have another batch coming on Tuesday. So keep an eye open if interested.
Thanks,
Mark

The smooth white bone is by far the best looking Pemberton. I went looking for one but, too late, all gone to new homes, none left for slow old farts. GEC collecting is getting to be a young guys game. Fast reflexes needed and state of the art equipment for micro-second speed advantage.
By the time us old guys have had our nap and found our glasses (and maybe dentures), they's all gone. Darn eh. :mrgreen:

Maybe I will start buying twos when I can so I can pass one along to a friend like you here on the forum. And if you or others aren’t interested than I can keep them or sell them elsewhere. We’ve got to help the elderly when we can. :D

Nice grab & knife. GEC did a nice job on those. Probably won't see those again for a long while.
