I'd like to see a copperhead. I like the design and would like to have one by GEC. And since GEC mostly eschews sunken joints, this would be perfect for them :o
The 65 ben hogan is a copperhead.
So it is. I missed those. They need to make more ::woot::
And since this is a wish list, make them 0.5" shorter :D

It's time for GEC to make a Sowbelly Stockman. Maybe even a small stockman similar in size and width to a Case #18.

Agreed. And judging by the old Queen-made Winchesters, Bill Howard knows how to do it right.

Large lockback gunstock jack. With lanyard hole or bail. Something like this 4-3/4 inch handful. Makes a great back pocket carry but could be carried in a belt sheath if that’s more to your liking. The gunstock frame allows for one-hand opening. ::tu::

I really like the 86 jack with sheepsfoot secondary, but can't bring myself to buy one as I HATE the run of the mill bland side offerings. Give me a dead skunk or St. Paddy's Day acrylic instead of that lame-o blah blah blah tortoise shell acrylic. Seems all the interesting acrylics are a thing of the past at GEC... too bad ::dang:: ::shrug::

Ken, I really like this knife.
I've never owned a Premier, but that one is a great looking knife.

Well they have the #98 frame at 4 7/8" so easy to put in a clip blade & long bolster and there you have a Daddy Barlow for those who like big knives with straight 'lines'.

I think the a Coke bottle shaped knife would make a better large Barlow type knife. The #97 Allegheny 4 3/4" closed would make a more attractive Barlow.

GEC will be making #23 Pioneer Trappers very soon this Year. I just pre-paid for my 2020 OKCA Club #23 Trapper in Antique jigged bone/beaver shield. I am hoping for a #23 with a wharncliffe/large muskrat clip , a #23 with beefy two blades . and a #23 single blade bull-lock. I love the new Chocolate Almond peach-seed jigged bone color. I think the #23 is one of GEC's best. 4.5" closed , a great beefy chore knife.

A Small Saddlehorn, (approx. 3 3/4" closed) with a clip and wharncliffe. Bolsters on both ends. Jigged in deep worm groove or their "clawed" style. In dark red and antique type chestnut of some sort. ::tu::

I love a good saddle horn knife. I bet after the #23 Jumbo Trapper , a new design GEC knife will happen.

Hey GEC! Are you seeing this? We're ready for something new. How about a Saddlehorn after the 23? ::tu::
