You are coming to GEC right when this new knife, the #06, is about the only one in the last few years that all of us 'regulars' are not super enthusiastic about. This is based on looks & small size. However the GEC standard of fit & finish is superb, likely the best you have ever seen/experienced.
Expect the GEC 'bug' to be far more virulent than the Case bug.

This is the first knife from gec that I have not reserved in awhile. I don't mind the looks but 2-3/4" is just too small to get my juices flowing.

I like the looks of this Micarta one better than I thought. Like it better than the blue bone and that’s a surprise.
I reserved a stag one blade and a stag two blade. I betting those will be a lot more appealing.

Here's the Pemberton alongside some other smalls grom Great Eastern While I've never carried mine, the 18s see the pocket. They are all great for their purpose. Might not field dress a bear with one, but opening upba package or mail they excell.

Just received my 06 Pemberton in blue jig bone. It is small, but not any smaller than my Case Butterbean.
I have a feeling this little guy will get a lot of pocket time.

Great looking knives! That Pemberton certainly does fit right in.

Traditional Pocket Knives has this in a smooth natural white bone. Just got the email minutes ago and already ordered. Single blade, no 2 blades.

CK is still showing that 2 stag are available this morning. Mike also said in his email that he has another batch coming on Tuesday for those who missed the first go round. Just FYI.

Whereas i like pen knives which often are small, i don't really like very small jacks. The Pemberton is 2 3/4" which is very small for a jack. I call 3" jack "small" and 4" or more "large". Hence i have not been trying to get one. That said, the smooth white bone does look very attractive. Maybe someone will flip me one cause they are all gone.
What a nut i am. Start the post 'nah, not for me' and end it asking for a flipper. I have the 'knife illness' bad.

Roland, I thought the same thing, they are very small but I had the opportunity to buy the white bone and did, too hard to resist.

I just received a KSF mail out: More stag Pembertons available. So of course i had to have a look. At the end of the Stag knives was a listing for a Pemberton with "Smooth White Bone". So i bought one. They still have a few more.
Many of the Stag knives are well hafted with nice thin Stag. Very tempting but i think the Smooth White Bone is exceptional. Some of them have no brown dots showing and look similar to ivory. Hope i get one of these 'almost ivory' ones.
