I HAVE ONE ARM. I OPEN SOME OF MY FOLDERS WITH MY FEET AND A CASEXX BLADE PICK. I HAVE BEEN WANTING THE GEC#97S FOR A WHILE NOW. I HAVE 7 GEC#97S ON PREORDER. MY MAROON MICARTA AND THE BEAVER TAIL #97 CAME IN THE MAIL. I GOT BAR-B-Q AND FRIED CAT FISH STAINS ON THE MAROON MICARTA KNIFE TODAY. I OWN A 100+ KNIVES. THIS IS A 4 3/4" CLOSED KNIFE. THEY ARE THE SMOOTHEST BIG FOLDERS THAT I OWN. I HOLD THEM BETWEEN MY KNEES AND THEY OPEN RIGHT UP WITHOUT BREAKING MY THUMBNAIL. THE MAROON MICARTA #97 IS A GREAT WORK KNIFE. NOT BUYING THIS KNIFE BECAUSE IT NOT A NORTHFIELD IS INSANE !

Here is my jigged cherry wood handled 97. One of 3 I early reserved. Like this one a lot. They did a very fine job on this wooden handled knife.

nice little 'review' onearm. The micarta one looks very smooth & elegant, like an athlete in a tux.

Edit to add: The maroon micarta #97 is so 'sharp' that i bought one last evening.

Looking forward to these big hunters.

I have mine on pre-order, waiting on an email to pay it off. I have two others and the Tidioute bone on the way. These are the smoothest hunter style knives that I have ever held in my only left hand. NO NAIL BREAKING ! I can't wait to test out the double nick knives , not like they are really needed. But they sure look cool.

Very nice Gary. Seeing the Micarta one is making me think that I might need to pick up one of those also. I have the cherry jigged bone, the autumn gold bone on the way, an early reserve on the Ebony handled, and not sure on the stag. I convinced myself that I wouldn’t like the Micarta, but I was wrong, that’s beautiful.
By the way, what does the circle w/ the 3 P’s stand for?

Thanks Gary, I wasn’t coming up with anything on my own.
Here are two so far that have come in. I am liking the way these look side by side, makes for a pretty picture and display.
