I was too

its a straight out the box #14 so I think it will improve with a bit of work

The Rodgers has an almost convex edge to it that just seems to work - I only stropped it when I got it and it was shaving hair

The GEC with a light strop didn't shave hair out the box - with a bit of work it will. Then the real tests can start :D

The GEC does beat the Rodgers for confort of use but thats only because the scales are a little thicker - not that I would but if the Rodgers had new scales I don't think it would ever leave my side

Thanks guys. It's got a pin crack but otherwise pretty good. Took a steady hand to grind those blades!

Wake this thread up, added a very nice Rodgers stag pen knife, I would say little to no use, 3 1/4", does have one crack in stag that is tight and hard to see. Marked Cutlers To His Majesty and #6 Norfolk St, so I think it is pre WW2.
