Hey Larry -- GO TIGERS !!!!!!!!
--- not a grad ,but "DIEHARD FAN" for the last 40++ years -- how about that baseball team this week-in
A member of this forum "" Gunstock Jack"" aka Barry Johnson, sorta introduced me to GEC,a few years after the company got started, and I just ran with it -- I fell in love with the #73 pattern and still have a few that I carry most everyday now** ___ I researched,studied,contacted the then few dealers,___ bought a lot of the older knives,before they got really popular** I got very lucky & bought an entire collection from one of the very first dealer's wife after he passed*** ( had quite a few first production,& short run knives in that bunch**) __ I even traded my older 70's, Case knives for the older GEC's***
Where you have been collecting guns for years and now going toward the knives -- I'm the other way around -- have sold most all my GEC's & bought guns
I still visit this great site and keep up with the knife stuff somewhat,but more into other interest now. Lots of good folks on here that will share info & help you with about anything you need. Have a great day my friend, & GO TIGERS !!!!!___ Monk
