Beautiful gsmith, I watched two sell, even bid, but was promptly passed by and left in the dust. Congrats, that's a beautiful cover.

Greg, I saw those cross on Ebay and thought about buying, but wasn’t sure how the extra polishing would be viewed by others. It’s a tough decision to alter a knife like that. I like the looks of it. How do you like it?

I'm probably misunderstanding in some way, but I thought GEC released these knives in this condition?

Mark I'm fairly certain that GEC made them like that as a SFO for Collector knives. Polished stag and satin finish blades. ::nod::

Maybe I am mistaken. There was a seller last week that had in his description that he didn’t like the unpolished stag that GEC put out so he polishe it down. That was in his description that HE had modified it. I thought Greg’s knife was that one. If you have the original listing you can see what he said he did to the knife and why.
I didn’t realize that GEC had any they had plolished. Glad to know.

Very nice Greg. Here is the 85 that sold the other day on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/GEC-85-Northfi ... 7675.l2557
The seller says that he was unable to attain one of the polished stag and he polished this one. Surprisingly it went for 305 dollars. I guess a do it yourself polished stag is still worth a small fortune.

Mark that knife was made in 2016 and has two blades. Maybe he couldn't get one of the new ones and decided to make his own. ::shrug::
