How about a # 43 Frontier bone. This one has some cosmetic issues and was labeled EDC.

Great bone on that one LSS, looks like Mammoth ivory in a way. Beauty of a knife.

Safe Queen for years until I could bring myself to use it and now I wish I hadn't denied it so long. Great knife that's fun to use and thin in the pocket. Decent to look at.

Those two look pretty new David, not much pocket time yet. But good choices. ::nod::

These are some of my most carried GEC's since I got them, I think they qualify as an edc even though I don't always carry them. The ebony I bought new, the hemlock bone I bought used for a ridiculously good price and I have another in mint condition so I do not fret to use this one hard. When I say hard I mean I'll do pretty much anything with it that doesn't severely damage the edge or otherwise break the knife. The hemlock is probably my favorite of these two and it has better snap on the secondary blades and looks nicer although ebony is my preferred work knife handle material. Either way I've become very fond of the 66 stockman pattern through use and through the ones I bought for my collection.

That's a cool looker Farside, never seen that brand before. Looks different from other Trappers out there and reminds me of ivory.
KSlinger, good looking Hemlock Green bone Stockman. I like those 66s and that has great covers.

Very nice 48 you've got there! I do love to see a full clip blade. I bet you can hardly feel it in the pocket yet with a highly useful blade size. Isn't Lone Star Knives the one who gets the Battleship SFO knives where they use decking wood or Damascus steel from old WWII ships? From what I've seen, GEC makes them in very limited numbers; very hard to come by. Well done!

Thank you Ivoryman & mOnk. Yes it is a Lone Star SFO . He has made a handful of smooth white bone kmives with the normal wood Battleship knives for the #48 & #56. I think only 16 were made of the 48’s.
It does disappear in the pocket :)
