Travis, the colors in your 48 are fantastic. Are they computer enhanced ? or is that how it looks in person ?

I was 'just looking' at the GEC knives in the AAPK store and i saw a rather nice stag 4 1/4" Equal End Stock knife, 538308. The price was reasonable enough but it did say "or best offer" so i sent a reasonable offer and the kind seller "Gary" accepted.
I like the early GEC's because there was more variety of pattern 'tweaks' and handle types. Many of the early knives are the more complex patterns, more demanding of the cutler's ability.
Here is this knife, seller's pics. I just bought it today, a good day to buy a knife. :D

Thanks Greg & DL. Yes the bolster to bolster stag is why i bought it. Some of the best GEC stag is on the early knives.

Oregon Knife Collectors Association knife show find. There it was at Gunstock Jacks table and Barry told me he had it custom covered, very nice popcorn black and brown and oatmeal off white stag. Not factory antler. Also a custom shield. Anyhoo, thanks Barry, fabulous piece, been looking for the right 48 with a good Wharn. If this had been sold online at auction it would have been twice the price.

72 with the pen blade. Very useful knife with the small and large blades. Bone is pretty nice as well.
