Greg, it looks like Charlie Campagna's SFO.

Rick has that not been released or did I just miss that one in the wink of an eye?

I'm not sure but I think they probably just left the factory today or maybe they will ship tomorrow.

It is a 3 1/2" barehead jack with a clip blade. Very basic folding knife, well made i am sure. If the lolly-scramble nuts buy it out in minutes i will be bumfuzzled.

Anybody else notice the "WHAT'S AT THE END OF THE HALL?" pic posted yesterday? Clearly Wall Street is for the upcoming run of 99s. Has GEC ever done a Coke Bottle pattern before? As for the cowboy, all I can guess is a run of stockmans, maybe 68 Buckaroos. Can anyone offer interpretations of these elements?

I think your guesses are pretty good, Lee. I'll add that the donkey might be a clue that they will use the Krack-A-Jack shield again.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that the flag above the donkey is hinting at another run of American Jacks, just in time for Christmas. Hopefully with clip blades. I've got enough spears to arm a Roman legion. (Ok maybe not that many) ::mdm::

But I've been wrong in my predictions before. Like how I was certain that Farmer Locks would come with this run of 99s, but it was not meant to be. I'm sticking with my theories about some kind of a stockman and a Coke bottle PPP.

Coke reference is likely and hopefully for the 06 Pemberton. Perhaps some Yankee and Washington jacks. In the back of my head I recall talk of more WJs, sheepsfoot 03 homages would have me smiling till the snow is gone.

Rob, I like your interpretations. The 06 Pemberton sure enough looks like a Coke bottle to me. And I'm definitely ready for a 77 WJ. The 77 page on the GEC site isn't displaying properly. Can anyone explain the difference between the Washington and Yankee Jacks? Is it that the YJ has a spear main and the WJ has a clip?

As for the cowboy, let's say it means a stockman run. I know about the 66, 68, 54, and 98 stockmans. Have there been others? Does anyone think the cowboy means something else?

Yankee Jack is a regular jack knife with the typical bolsters and endcaps. The Washington Jack is a Charlie Campaigns exclusive and features stamped UNXLD endcaps, lined and grooved bolsters and the handles are radiuses at 45°. Similar to the Schrade 2ot amongst others. The finest of any modern traditional pocketknife made in the last 40+ years, in my less than humble opinion. Here's a screenshot from GECfor the 14 run.

Looks like the 2019 possibilities are up for view on GEC’s site

Oh my goodness. 3 7/8" straight jack with clip main and coping pen. 3 9/16" cattle knife. And a 4 3/4" Coke bottle jack with double pulls on the Northfields, I'll be busy buying jacks in 2019 again it seems.

Ok guys, I was going to create a new thread regarding the recent "What's Happening" pics, but I had to resurrect this old thread because it seemed appropriate. So with no Production Schedule update, we're seeing: 47 Hawkbills, 72 Hoof Picks, 65 Fish Knives, all kinds of kitchen implements, and H10 mini Hunters! What's going on?? Are these non-scheduled runs going to be for knife shows, or are they going to the distributors?

The exciting knife that is to be made this year is the #29 Eureka pattern as a 2 blade Jack and a 3 blade Cattle knife. Anyone know how soon work on these will begin ?

Roland, it sounds like you have more information than I. Is the name Eureka a common traditional pattern, or do you know that GEC will name the new 29 the Eureka? Also, where did you hear that they will run it in a 2 blade jack configuration? Clearly I'm in the dark on recent news.
