GEC specializes in highly collectable and premium quality usable pocket knives. The company's USA manufactured knives have quickly proven to be a big hit with both collectors and users who seek quality American craftsmanship.
Roland all of them feel similar in hand. The Ebony prototype has the satin finish on the blade and is just a striking classic to me. I have two more stags on the way so I'm hoping I hit a real stunner with one of them. All of them are great knives so far, fit and finish, balance,blade pull and snap.
IF YOU AIN'T BUYING OR LOOKING AT A KNIFE THEN YOU AIN'T LIVING. Always looking to buy good quality Empire knives.
I picked up my #44 with Autumn Gold Jigged Bone and satin blade finish. This is my 3rd #44. I have never before bought multiples of the same pattern. I think hanging around here has affected me. My other 2 are a Tidiote with Gabon Ebony and a Northfield with Cocobolo Wood. GEC did a very fine job with these 44's. All 3 of mine are 'right on' and others who have posted here report the same. Very impressive. Thank you GEC ! Which do i prefer ? They really all are equally appealing. If i had to select one: perhaps the Cocobolo. It is very elegant. kj
Wow! Everybody’s 44’s are looking great! I have to imagine that this pattern for GEC will definitely become a favorite. I have the goldenrod jigged bone and just got this recently. It’s my first stag and I really dig it.
