GEC “Beaver Tails”

Post by BeaverTail_Hunter » Sat Jul 31, 2021 12:06 am

I am new to this forum and have already had a chance to “meet” a few of you and even buy a few knives from some of you. I have always enjoyed knives and my favorite knife manufacturer has been Chris Reeve Knives.

Recently, I have re-entered the slip joint world and I enjoy collecting GEC knives that feature the beaver shield.

Since I am always taking pictures of them and hunting them down for my collection, I thought I would start a thread here too.

The first pic is the one that started the beaver tail addiction for me, the Pioneer Trapper.

That 48 “Improved Trapper” is probably my favorite of the 48s !

I'm with you. Hands down my favorite of the 48's and tied with a couple of other GEC's.
