IMO, you nailed it. I was looking forward to a big stag, but I guess it’s not to be. I’m wary about Mesquite, though. The grain, figure and color contrast can vary from unimpressive to dazzling and vendors won’t be individually photographing the wood ones.
Guess I am gonna go for a jigged bone variant! This is gonna be another gigantic run!
No ebony, no blackwood, no cocobolo, no desert ironwood, no smooth bone (edited to note the autumn looks like it is smooth bone so can’t complain about that!)........... seems like a limited set of covers on this knife.
I agree, can't wait to see how the mesquite comes out.
yep... mesquite sounds good... although the goldenrod natural bone would be pretty nice, I imagine... too bad it's an SFO and likely already sold out.
There will also be a single blade 23 variation that’s not yet on the GEC website. Cover varieties for that one are not yet determined.
Those single blades are going to be sweet. I hope they have strong pulls.
What I wrote above is all I know.
Aren't the last 4 in the production list single blade variants?
Are you guys talking about something else?
Since the linerlocks were on the GEC website when Stumpy72 posted - I'm assuming he is referring to something else....
Mesquite & Bomb shield looks like the winner to me.
I was hoping for some ebony, oh well.
The jigged bone northfields should be nice. One of those will be it if I get one. Nice lineup.
I was told exactly what I wrote above and I posted it here pretty quickly after being informed. At this point, I’m not sure if I was given correct or fully current info so I’m not sure if what I was told was about any SFO(s) or not. Sorry about my evidently incomplete, flawed research and for muddying the waters here.
Ok pardon my ignorance but these do not have a lock, correct?
I believe the single blade variants have a liner lock. The 2 blade variants won't. At least that is the way I understand it.
looks like the double blades, no lock, and the single blade, liner lock.
Oh Ok thanks for the clarification guys.
Edit: haha I don’t know how my eyes missed the bolded “Liner Lock” at the bottom of the single blades.
