Jerry, are those 4 #98 pattern knives yours ? If so you had a lot of foresight to get them when they first came out. The bone handled ones are hard to find now.
Yes i love my Texas Camp Knife but i carry it in a belt sheath, not free in my pocket. I like carrying in a belt sheath anyway, not just this #98.

I want Great Eastern Cutlery to make a #97 swing-guard lock knife Northfield sabre clip blade. I want to see more knives in Oily Creek bone , Blueberry jigged bone , and Autumn Leaf bone. Schatt & Morgan made a humpback lock whittler. That would make a great GEC knife.

I'd like to see GEC make a limited run of serialized big knives(sunfish, whalers, big coke bottles, or #23 pioneers) with mammoth ivory handles. Maybe with engraved bolsters, fluted handles, etc.
I would be happy to pay $600, $700, $800 or maybe even more for one of those.

When folks are getting $600, $700, even $800 on eBay for short-run wood or bone Whalers already, there's probably not a lot of impetus for GEC to run more with very exotic handles using machining they probably thought they could retire forever. ::disgust::

Wish they would anyway, though. ::paranoid:: ::smirk::

I've been accumulating the Tuna Valley mammoth handle knives. I'm crazy about mammoth ivory. About 7 or 8 years ago I bought a pair of GEC mammoth handle sunfish knives.
One is interior mammoth and the other is exterior mammoth.
They are beauties.

Stephen have you posted pictures of your 2 mammoth sunfish knives ? If you have can you please post a link. If no pictures posted then how about posting here ? I think they are a #36 pattern and we all would really like to see them.

Does the interior mammoth have more of a white color that looks closer to elephant?

Always looking for excellent to mint condition schrade cut co and walden knives. I really like stockman and cattle patterns.

The new GEC#29 release will happen later this year. I hope that AAPK will order this for our 2019 AAPK club member Northfield #29 knife. I hope AAPK orders a rare popular color like smooth Oily Creek bone , Blueberry jigged bone , Autumn Leaf bone , or Tiger Maple Wood !!!!

That punch whittler will probably retail well over $100 and that might prevent an SFO from AAPK, but I for one would be willing to pay for it (in advance if need be) - and still try for a sure thing reservation from dealers when they are offered. :mrgreen:

Piling on to comments about the #29 - of the patterns publicized for 2019 this is the one I am anticipating the most. My hopes for handles are yellow rose and a classic bone jig such as peach seed. Giraffe would be nice, but seems highly unlikely unless Northwoods is getting a SFO from this frame.
