I do not recognize the name of the store with lambfoot. Do some people join AAPK just to sell knives here ?
Is this seller supplied directly from GEC ? or is he buying from authorized dealers ?
His price of $199 is not that much over the $145 GEC just sold out at. And this AAPK seller is now also sold out.
Does GEC tell dealers how much they can charge ?

I can’t speak for him. I bought one of those that he had. In his email it sounded like he bought them just the way we could have, if we were fast enough. So he is not a dealer and therefore can charge whatever he likes. Dealers are stuck only charging what they agreed to charge, you can lose your dealer agreement doing otherwise. Not sure he charged enough, I bet these will be on EBay for 250 to 300. That’s what I would try them at.

Those look Great ! The jigged bone is a real Standout !
Charlie has an excellent sense of design. His knives are always the best of a GEC pattern.
Anyone know if this pattern was originally designed to trim lamb hooves ? Or was it given this name because it is a narrow Sheepsfoot profile ?

Three weeks ago I cantacted all of the Waynorth Dealers with no success. 6/26/2019 I received an email invoice Pay-Pal notice for the "Charlie" Dark Chestnut peach-seed bone Lambs foot knife. I think I save $5 too. I planned not to buy this knife , but it seemed like fate . I changed my mind and I snagged it ! Thank You Jesus !

Kenny,

That's an amazing story, it must have been meant to be! From every pic I've seen, the dark chestnut bone came out as advertised on this one. Keep it and use it, or pass it along, either way it's a win-win for you.
