I checked within about 30 minutes of your post and they're gonzo. There's just no way of telling what GEC patterns are going to be hot sellers. A certain distributor who shows all their knives setting up on rough rocks has them in stock right now, but I don't want a brand new knife with rock scratches all over it. I'm holding out again.

Roland, I don't want to say anything that could be construed as critical about a specific distributor, but it's a dealer in pocket knives that are mostly traditional.

Nope, it's not Frank. I haven't seen you around here before. Welcome, Airborne!

Did anyone else anticipate that the humble #39 would fly off the dealers' shelves like this? I'm quite surprised at the customer response. I mean, the sheepsfoot is one of my most used blades, but I just didn't think people would clamor after them like this. Perhaps GEC will meet the demand with more knives with sheepsfoot main blades.

I for one, would love to see more sheepsfoot blade knives. They are good old hard working knife blades.

Just a question. I am new to the forum and have found it very interesting reading about the new release Lambsfoot GEC knife. They were in short supply and some members got one and others missed out. How do you find out about them and go about purchasing one, can you be placed on waiting list to purchase these sort of releases? Interested and curious. :D :?

Trying to snag a new GEC release has become very competitive. There is a rush you feel as you are trying to be at dealer site the second the release opens to buyers. You have to grab one and checkout immediately and hope someone did not scoop you by 1 millionth of a second. First to complete checkout wins.
Not all releases are like that but are if mammoth, giraffe, stag or rams horn is an option. You need a fast internet connection. Hicks in the boonies are the loosers in this feeding frenzy.
I am slow boony internet guy. Someone more adept might talk about waiting list, etc.
Always some ebay flippers score multiple knives (How ?) and then you can buy one for double the price the very next day.
If you are a trader on stock exchange floor you might be pretty good at this.

Edit: i just saw you are in Australia. Even the fastest internet connection will be slower than a USA internet user. You will need luck to get one of the high demand releases.

The dealer who shows his knives with rocks is a vet and a very stand-up guy. All the knives he sells are new and unmarked. I’ve bought a number from him. All are perfect. If anyone should have an issue I have no doubt he would take care of it. In fact, he is my go to dealer.

Assumptions can be harmful.

Well said! I've ordered many knives from this dealer and will back him any day.
