Thank you, Ivoryman. I am mighty happy with that ebony 4-blade. GEC did top notch work on that ol' boy.

Here is a yellow rose Allegheny 97. I might have been the last person to receive one from the dealer :) .

I'm happy with the snap. It is not nearly as strong as a Case Tested XX C61050 Cokebottle for example, but it does snap closed with some noise.

Here is a very nice 431118 with orange camel bone handles which i recently won on ebay for $127. I think this is close to the original price, i.e. not all GEC's sell high on the secondary market.
Of all the single blade knives that GEC has made i think the 4 1/4" #43 is the best one for a user knife. It is big enough but not too big. It's a Great knife !
I'm showing it here with my cocobolo 43. As attractive as the orange camel bone is, the cocobolo makes it look even more classy.

Nice examples Roland. I too believe the 43 to be a great knife. They also had some of the nicest stag GEC has done in a long time.

Thanks Paul. I will look for a stag one. I suspect they are hard to find because owners are keeping them. Great pattern, best stag, why sell it ?

kj, Your two GECs are supremely handsome, and I agree with you on the fine sizing which for me is ideal. ::ds::

This is my first post here at AAPK and the #97 in Sambar Stag was my first GEC knife that I received only a couple of weeks back. Even though I got in fairly late in the game, I managed to score myself a two-fer of firsts, lol. That 97 stands right now as the prize of my collection and my current favorite overall. I just love the large coke bottle pattern, regardless of manufacturer really, but oh, my sweet #97, it is a truly amazing piece of workmanship. I had such high hopes pinned on my first GEC and especially this pattern and in absolutely no way was I disappointed. The stag is gnarly and well matched. The scales were assembled with unbelievable care it seems because even after going over it with a loupe I couldn't find any defects or micro cracks around the any of pins. This is an absolutely amazing knife and i plan to love and care for it for a long while. It was also a birthday gift so it was just a perfect storm of awesomeness that hit.

I don't buy many GEC's on the secondary market but this 89 whittler popped up the other day with a reasonable BIN so I jumped on it and I am glad I did, very classy knife,
