My 2019 AAPK knife was delivered this morning and it is a fine knife! I would love to carry it but I won't, she'll just have sit there and look pretty with my other AAPK knives :)!

Since I knew it was coming, of course the mail carrier was an hour later than normal but at least it got here. What a beauty.

Just noticed the marking on Jerry's tang stamp (checked mine too, and it's on last years AAPK Club Knife too). What does GECCAR stand for? I get that GEC is Great Eastern Cutlery, but what does "CAR" signify? OH

You don't suppose it stands for CARBON, do ya? My 82 Dixie Stockman has CARBON spelled out on the tang so I assume the blades are 1095 Carbon Steel.

Jerry, I bet that is it! Thanks, BB
Ps I also noticed that the AAPK tang stamp is replaced with the Northfield tang stamp. Details, details - that's what makes it interesting!

cudgee, if you have any further issues obtaining a knife let us know here. I think we can all brainstorm some way to get you a forum knife without breaking the bank on shipping.

You all are killing me. I’m in Atlanta until Sunday and mine didn’t arrive before I left for the airport. Can’t wait to see mine when I get home. These do look really nice.

Got home this morning (3:00 AM) from traveling and my wonderful wife had my USPS package sitting on the kitchen counter for me.

I couldn't wait to get it open...this knife is really a great knife and Thank you to Bryan for making this happen for us! I am like Dale (Orvet), not a GEC guy, however, it is an AAPK Club knife and I would get one regardless of the maker, just to support this Wonderful Site we have at our disposal.

Thank you again,
Respectfully

Tom

Today I received my 2019, AAPK knife. It actually arrived yesterday, but wasn't available for pickup when I made my ONE daily trip to the post office. To say it's a beauty, is putting it mildly. I'd like to thank Bryan and anyone else involved in the production of this fine looking, quality piece of cutlery. Thank you! :D ::tu::

Received my club knife a couple days ago but have been too busy to reply (or take pics). It is a great knife the smell of the fresh oil is divine! Thanks Bryan!
