GEC Ivory Whaler

Postby kootenay joe » Thu May 23, 2019 10:24 pm

GEC 462211
I bought this knife new from a GEC dealer. The crack on the back side happened when peening the spring pivot pin in the GEC factory/workshop.
It has not changed. It is stable. The crack will not enlarge on it's own but will if dropped.
New in tube, never used.
If interested please contact me with offer of over $749, via PM or email: rprocter@telus.net
Note: your offer will be for total price, including shipping.

I still have this knife. If you would like to own it, send me an offer. It is an impressive knife. If you like ivory, these handle pieces are as fine as the ivory on my custom knives by Ken Erickson, Jerry Halfrich, Tony Bose and others. If you are not thoroughly impressed please return it for full refund.
Personal check or USPS M.O. accepted as well as PP.

I just came across a sold listing on ebay for a GEC #36 with mammoth ivory: $925. The #46 pattern is similar, but larger. GEC will not make any more knives with ivory and might soon drop mammoth as well. A total of 5 ivory #46 were made. It could be a long time before another one comes up for sale and $1500 has been the selling price for at least one of these. My hope to get $750 is very reasonable. This is my most impressive GEC and i am only selling it because i need the money.

I agree with what you are saying Roland- This is quite a fantastic price for this example- Rare and collectible from one of the best Cutler Manufacturers that exist today. wow that's a beauty!
