I reserved one and then paid for it Aug 9 but it has not yet been shipped. Are the dealers having trouble getting the bone Northfield 44's ? I thought GEC had finished this run 1-2 weeks ago.

Roland, some of the shipments were delayed due to the Rendezvous, you should see something soon I would think, I got mine Monday.

DLT says they will get theirs early next week. CK.net has not emailed anything about my reserve so they're not out yet. Could be Monday though . Keep an eye out.

I am interested in a Stag 44 but want to see both sides plus a picture showing handle thickness before buying it. I think these will be like a mammoth release: jump in, grab one, check out. That's no way to buy a knife (L.Cohen). Maybe the days of carefully selecting just the right one are over. I remember 'sleeping on it' and making my decision in the morning. Knife was still there.
Now most likely it will be scramble with bots and then bargain with flippers. I am lucky i got some nice ones way back when the pickens was easy.

I have a feeling that the dealers won't even bother to take multiple pictures of each knife. They probably realize they can sell them out without going through the trouble.:(

I agree the GEC dealers could sell out a Stag GEC knife with only pictures of mark side. However some of the customers would be disappointed with the knife received and dealers know that a disappointed customer rarely returns. This is why i think most dealers will show 3 pictures for stag or mammoth knives ( both sides plus spine view to show thickness).
