That blue bone is very attractive. Any know if it’s an SFO or a standing Northfield?

I believe that is a SFO for Olde Towne Cutlery.

I like the look of the Waynorth ones, especially with jigged bone. I bet they will be in high demand. Does GEC reveal how many knives an SFO entails ?

Roland they do but it will be many months before it gets posted in the production totals. Charlie would probably tell you. :D

Picked this 93 up and decided to make it a user.
This time of year, Fredericksburg, has some of the best peaches, to be found anywhere. About an hour NW of San Antonio, the Mrs and I went up for lunch and to go to one of the local growers. We picked up 7lbs of "seconds". Mama's working on the cobbler now!
The 93 is exceptional at the task of peeling and dicing things. The peaches really jump started the patina. I really like this knife.

I think Charlie stated there were 500, I don't know what the breakdown was between bone and ebony.

I lucked out and got 1 of each, been laid up with a bum knee and sitting in front of the computer all day.

Good for you JohnR. I hope one day to get a jigged bone Waynorth #93.
Those peaches look so good, like they ripened on the tree. It is too wet for peaches where i am (Peach leaf curl) and the ones that will be in the stores in about a month are always rock hard and not that good when they soften. Harvest too long before being ripe.

We have a relatively short window, for getting good peaches. Generally the month of June. Usually after the 4th of July, they are pretty much done. You're right about being ripened on the tree. The "seconds" were $10, for 7 lbs and taste just as good as the pretty ones. The pretty ones were $22 for 7 lbs. You don't get any, remotely as good as these, in the store.

This Northfield may be the best of the run, what a classy looking knife.

I read somewhere 300 bone - 200 ebony. Do not know how correct this is though.
