There are still handle choices: Stag, Gabon Ebony, Antique Amber Jigged Bone, Moose Green Jigged Bone, Appaloosa Bone, Osage Orange Wood, Natural Canvas Micarta and Red Linen Micarta.
This might be The Least Popular GEC pattern: available at the dealers for over 1 year, maybe almost 2 years. This is drastically different from patterns that sell out in under 5 minutes.
The Moose pattern has always been very collectible. Find an old Case 6275 in good condition and you will see a high price.
Based on how poorly these GEC #81 are selling i doubt GEC will ever do another run.
I think once these are all finally sold, those who don't have one will wish they had bought one while the supply was plenty.
This is a long way of saying: I just bought a GEC 811217. It was a toss up between the Ebony or the Antique Amber Jigged Bone. I have perhaps more Ebony than jigged bone so i chose the Antique Amber Jigged Bone. I feel good for having made this decision to buy one.
This would also make for an excellent user knife. It is well suited for field dressing deer.
