GEC's #14s

Postby boykinlp » Mon Jul 02, 2018 4:28 am

So, with GEC coming out with a ton of new SFOs, and assuming you could get any you wanted, what are your top 5 choices? If I counted correctly, you have 24 choices, so there should be something for everyone. I am including a link to the GEC page that lists all the choices. Mine are:

http://greateasterncutlery.net/blog/201 ... n-june-29/

1. Cripple Creek - Stag
2. DLT Trading - Snakewood
3. Frank's Classic Knives - Oily Creek Bone
4. Gunstock Jack's - Smooth Autumn Gold Bone
5. AAPK - Antique Yellow Saw Cut Bone

BTW, if anyone wants to post pictures of knives that have any of these handle materials, I know it will be appreciated so we can see what they actually look like.

I may not even get one but here are my top five choices in order of preference:

1. Grand Prairie Knives SFO - Black Canvas Micarta
2. Gunstock Jack's SFO - Smooth Autumn Gold Bone. (Reserve already filled)
3. Circle A SFO - Smooth Yellow Bone
4. Blade HQ SFO - Brown Burlap Micarta
5. Collectorknives SFO - Red Sawcut Bone

I won't be able to afford all these, but it would be something like this:

1. Charlie Campagna TC Barlow
2. CollectorKnives - Red Sawcut Bone
3. AAPK - Antique Yellow Sawcut Bone w/ shield
4. Cripple Creek - Stag w/ Buffalo Shield (assuming they will have shield w/ stag)
5. Northfield

Does anyone know who will be handling the Cripple Creeks?

I read SMKW holds the CC trademark.
I am hoping for a barlow, 2 blade Northfield in stag and as KSF has no SFO, I also pick the unannounced Northwoods in stag or giraffe or mammoth or camel. 8)

I plan to only buy a couple, Barry's SFO was the only one I reserved because I knew they would go fast. Smooth Autumn gold bone and a crest shield with that clip blade,,,,WINNER! ::ds::
There are so many that I can't imagine someone not finding something that tickles their fancy here, including the AAPK Forum knife!

I'd put my money that there will be a KSF Northwood's #14 release. It has been the norm that they are not shown or mentioned in any of GEC's upcoming info.

Roger, the #14s I see on Great Eastern's web site are 3". If you know something I don't, I'd be glad to hear it. The #15s are 3½". What am I missing?

These are fairly puny knives .I believe I will limit my purchases to Gunstock Jack's smooth autumn gold bone and the aapk knife. Come on Gec give us a big mammoth viper.

Yeah with so many that'll be out there, there will be a few folks that will try and go deep on these and they certainly can, but I mainly wanted the Smooth Autumn because I hadn't been able to get one in these covers yet. When I found out that Barry was doing this then I was all in, even though I've already bought 3 #15 pattern knives in the last month! Barry's will have the clip single, bolsters on both ends and that subtle crest shield that HSB used to use, some hundred years ago. I remember Dale sold me a knife a few years back that's one of my favorite old EDCs. Old Peachseed bone and has that crest shield. ::ds::

Ha, every time someone says that GEC appears to not be busy, I think that in fact GEC is completely busy making a secret run of NWs! Getting back to Larry's original question, I don't want to generate any additional hype so I don't want to make a full list... but I will say that I want to get my hands on a sawcut bone example.

I like the "distributed" nature of this run since there are so many SFOs to choose from. Even if there are only 100 pieces in each SFO, the fact that there so many distributors involved it reduces the chance of an average enthusiast completely losing out in a single lolly scramble. Kinda like the recent #78 run, only I believe there are even more SFOs in this run. Keeps things interesting!

Jerry, I totally understand this excitement. I carry my #14 2-blade quite often and I always admire and enjoy it. It's just a lot of knife in a small package, and the steel bolsters resist tarnish from my sweaty hands. Lots of fun to carry and use. I can't wait so see what a single clip looks like on this frame, in all the cool covers coming up! ::woot::
