Just dropped on GEC homepage.

Looks cool! Maybe it will get more blades in future iterations!

Pen secondary, and it is perfect. But, as is, I think this will be a nice EDC. 2.81 is a little small, but not too much. Frame is pretty fat, sot it should still be easy to hold.

Too tiny for one arm me. I am still hoping for a #47 Viper run and a #74 Saddle Trapper Run . The red Tidioute jigged bone #19 Little Rattler is ugly. Dark blue would be much better. I would love a blue river acrylic , any wood , or the right Northfield jigged bone. I just pre-ordered with an E-mail to Mr. Frank. That Sambar Stag with pinched bolsters is awesome. I will buy one or two GEC#19 knives on this run. This is a jeans 5th pocket knife.

The small GEC knives have never been a big hit with the buyers. Under 3" is too small for most people. Would have made more sense to make this one 3 1/8"-3 1/4".

Looks nice to me, but if it's a short run it may be tricky to get one! The early reserve on the 74 filled up on Collector Knives between the time my phone dinged me and when I logged in and looked at it, less than two minutes.

Cody6268 said pen secondary blade, but the number and picture indicates a single blade it appears.

Sharp little knife though, I certainly don't have a 19, have they been made before?

To clarify, it would be what I would like to see in the pattern.

No. It's a new pattern.

My mistake, didn't read the whole two posts together, sorry. I wouldn't mind having one of each, as shown and with a pen blade secondary. I like a smaller knife.
