$15 is about right if you ship first class postage without insurance.

Yaaaaaah Hooooo !!! ::ds:: ::ds:: ::ds:: ::ds:: Mine just arrived and man it is a beauty ! I really believe this is the best yet as far as the AAPK knives go, and considering how fond I am of all the previous ones, that's saying a lot.

Thank you Bryan for making this spectacular knife available to us. ::handshake::

I don't collect GEC knives is a brand, but because I collect AAPK knives, OKCA knives and other knives, like Charlie Compagna's, I consequently have several GEC's. I don't have a permanent display for them as of now, so they sit in a drawer at the moment. When the AAPK knife arrived yesterday I thought that looked quite a bit like the 2019 OKCA club knife (Oregon Knife Collectors Association). So I took them out and took a couple pictures of them side-by-side. I was right! It's a nice pattern to begin with and now it's starting to grow on me! ::doh::

Thanks Bryan for a great choice in AAPK Club Knives this year! ::clapping::

Fortunately for OKCA, GEC already had the beaver shield. :lol:

Yes, several years ago GEC made a club knife for OKCA, and I think they made the Beaver Tail series at the same time.

I agree it's unique nowadays but it was fairly common on old folding hunters the size of this one, about 100 years ago or more. There's a thread about knives having "double pulls" here somewhere with some examples. Great to see it revived on this knife. ::tu::

Terry there are still some to be had. Take a gander up to the top right of your screen and you should see a picture of one. Click on that and it'll take you to the page where you can place an order.
