roseandthistlecustom - Welcome to AAPK. Glad to have you aboard. Slip on over to Member Introductions at ---► viewforum.php?f=20 and tell us a little about yourself.


I guess after accumulating a few more over the years, the #48 has become my favorite by a narrow margin. Picking your favorite is kinda like picking your favorite child or grandchild.

The 82 dixie is also a favorite. These two are my favorite gec users.

kj, your 85 easy open knife is a beautiful example! Attached is a side-by-side picture of the saber ground spear on your knife to the flat ground spear that was on the 2018 85 pattern.

Thanks for posting this comparison. The blade profiles are quite different. I like the symmetry of my saber ground blade profile.
I should get out all of my GEC spear point blades. I think no 2 are the same; i.e. the spear point blade in each pattern is unique.

Yer GEC is sweet Roland! Sabre ground makes for a very classy knife, as long as it's done in good taste. I think they nailed it with this one ::nod:: ::tu:: .

Both those 29's are very nice. I carry a stag 29. I bet if you carried the red jigged bone 29, the bone would actually look even better with slightly worn down jigging.
You've got some very nice GEC's Willy. Problem is: it just makes a guy want more.

Thank you Mr. Roland ::handshake::. I really appreciate your comments :D .
I can't disagree at all, especially on always adding another one to the hoard :roll: :mrgreen: :wink: .
For now the #29 is going to be a display queen. I'm thinking if i want a edc 29, i'll get myself a "plain jane" Tidioute version, then i wouldn't feel bad about scratching it up a bit, even drop it a few times (don't ask me how i know ::facepalm:: ).
Thank you again for letting me share ::handshake:: .

This little 25 in Primitive Bone just became one of my favorites! This is such a beauty!! I dig both blades and the way they are set up with the small blade in front.

I find the #46 ("Whaler") pattern to be too massive, more of a show piece than a knife to use. For a Sunfish pattern, the GEC #36, is 'just right'.
Here is one from 2009 with stag and a shield and double pull master blade. The stag feels great in hand, not bulky but thick enough to suit this large pattern.
This one will be hard to sell, meaning, hard to let go of.
