Yes my Texas Camp knife is beautiful & impressive, but did you see the one in smooth white/yellow bone ? Man, i want that one too.
Why is it i never seem satisfied enough to never want another knife ?

I'm glad that I don't actually have to only carry one knife forever and it's confined to gec, but I'll play along for fun. The choice would be easy.

Always looking for excellent to mint condition schrade cut co and walden knives. I really like stockman and cattle patterns.

I just bought a large GEC leather belt sheath. The #97 Allegheny knife fits wonderful in this sheath. The police don't mind a big sheath on your hip , but police don't like big knives in the pocket. This sheath is beautiful.

Thanks for showing the GEC sheaths. They look great and being the correct size, it is the sheath you need to EDC a 97 in comfort. I did not know about these sheaths.

That's easy for me. After selling off my entire GEC collection of about 75 I kept one that is as important as any knife I own. A 73 drop point in stag.

Oh Wow ! Is that #73 ever a standout ! Great stag, most useful of all blade profiles = Superb knife. Every one of your knives is a total 'home run", outta the park.

"Thank you sir"
You are welcome. I am not saying how incredibly fine your knives are just to be polite. I am truly 'moved' by the knives you post.
If you have one that is more 'average', you have not posted it yet.
I try for 'special' knives but most i end up with are very nice but not an outstanding example. Somehow you are able to score "outstanding" with every knife you buy.

The thank you stands Roland because all my knives are special. From the least expensive beater to the most pristine custom. Some are just more special than others.
