Only 50 , you know these will be high dollar like the Maher & Grosh GEC knives. The second Northfield just came out.

Is that also a Buffalo in the background? Does that mean a Buffalo horn 97?

Hey Larry , It s African Ebony wood. It is one of the hardest/best woods ever use on knives for over 130+ years. Keep it oiled and they almost never crack past your life time.

That sure looks like a buffalo to me Larry. I don't see that on any of the charts. A surprise for us I guess.

On the GEC website under "What's Happening" is a picture of a Coke bottle with elk antlers on the cap and a little dude pushing a grand piano in the direction of "Assembly".
How accurate are these pictures ? i.e. can the picture composer tell an elk rack from a deer rack ? If so then is there an elk handled #97 being made ?
Piano symbolizes elephant and ebony.
Krusius knives assembled after factory closed used piano keys to haft some knives: the thin ebony was over laid with ivory that was a bit smaller than the ebony. making a black border around the ivory.
Think GEC might be doing this ?

Why is the buffalo standing in line behind the coke bottle with antlers?

I missed seeing the buffalo. Buffalo could be a shield as on some vintage USA folding knives.
