Stag, and Primitive Bone, how you guys withstand it. :roll:
:wink: I have a feeling there will be at least a couple members adding one of these to the GEC collection, only because they have to. ::paranoid::

I wonder if they've ever released a knife in so many variations as this one? What a run...

I doubt that we'll ever see another run of French Kate which, over time, may make it a very collectible knife from a rarity perspective.

With 600+ on the production schedule how rare can they become? ::shrug::

600 knives with 11(so far)different handle materials.
That's not many, imo, if they don't run them again.
As I understand it, they were only going to run 35 of the primitive bone.

There are 10s of thousands of knife collectors.

Doesn't everybody need one more bottle opener?

I do.

I'm a bit surprised none of our faithful has popped for one or more. 8) ::paranoid:: :D

I bought the Kate primitive bone proto, one primitive bone serialized, and two of the 25 total burnt stags serialized.
The stag is surprisingly good on these small knives.... well-matched, deep line, and gnarly.
Gnarly Kate.... I like it!

While I am waiting for it to arrive, I will post Gregs pics of the French Kate I ordered.
I like the UN-X-LD shield and the blade etching on the Stag's doesn't say 'French Kate'.

That is some really pretty stag!
And the detail on the shoe/boot is outstanding.
GEC did a great job on this little knife and the price is right, too.
