The stag 44's are trickling in and flying off the shelves. The Knife Connection had some today.

Some of the stag handles I wasn't really impressed with.

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.

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 you are correct. They are all beautiful knives beautifully made. Still waiting on two more stags,perhaps I'll sell the other two if one wins my heart ,or maybe not. :D

finally here. I've been thinking for a while now, there can't be many makers doing a better job with Sambar Stag than GEC does.

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.
