#35 AAPK Churchill

Postby robbobus » Fri Aug 18, 2017 6:59 pm

I was reading the GEC website and see this. Is there any details out there? I don't have any 35s myself, but the Queen/S&M baby sunfish from the early 2000s (Bill Howard at Queen era) has alot of similarities and imho one of the finest pocketknives of all time. Very excited.

Good to see it on the schedule and thrilled about the pattern for the forum knife. Looking forward to the details (thought this thread might be the one! ::mdm:: ) but it seems a guarantee I'm gonna get it. :lol:

I might be interested in one of these depending on the handle material but I'm not familiar with the AAPK process. Will there be a topic started with updates and instructions on how to purchase?

The 2016 knife came after what I believe was a little prodding of a very busy Bryan at the time. I'm assuming from the fact that GEC already has a production order on the schedule that we are waaaay ahead of 2016 and Bryan has already started the process. I haven't been around for a week so I didn't see any actual threads, but last time one thread came up to gauge interest and provide details, then once a count was taken knives were ordered which we got towards the end of the year (GEC 74 clip). Since I'm already preparing myself for the TC Barlow "lolly scramble" online I am a little apprehensive about how quickly notifications for this knife might hit, or what the production count is. I know I am going to try and get at least one of any flavor, and depending on circumstances maybe one for the EDC pile.

Last year's knife was eminently reasonable price-wise and a very, very nice piece of cutlery. I have little doubt this year's will be any different.

Thanks Tony. If there is a thread created, would it be in the General Knife Discussion sub forum?

If my memory isn't failing me these days it was in General where the "official" thread took place, but that entire process may be up in the air now that GEC is already scheduled to work on 'em. ::shrug:: YMMV.

And the Bull Moose and Calf Pen Jack - this will be my first foray into the GEC feeding frenzy but this looks like a fairly pricey bit of chum in the water.

I believe Bryan sent an email last time announcing them and there was also a thread posted from where you could buy them.
