    Some approximate production totals for the Pocket Carver:
    600 each of the cocobolo and smooth bone
    300 each in the F&F trim

    My camel bone #62 is great. Looking forward to the pocket carver.

    They are making the 62 in stag, in Northfield trim...

    that makes me feel a little better about my odds of being able to get one of the white bone Tidioutes... I have a couple of F&F's on reserve, but didn't realize I'd like the looks of the white bone as much as I do...

    Yep. But they no longer use shields on stag anymore

    Yes... I had heard that was GEC's policy now. I'm sort of ambivalent... Some stag looks good with a shield, but I generally prefer none..

    Possibly the best built GEC I’ve come across, everything about this knife is exactly what I want. Medium-firm pulls, great W&T, centered blade tips. The covers are flush at the bolsters, edges decently sharp, too shiny for pics in the Florida sun! Flawless production level package here, those guys in Pennsylvania seem to be getting even better.

    Edit: oiled the joints, stropped each blade about 100 times, opened and closed each blade about 100 times... This one’s going to be a real treat.

    I have really developed a liking for the tomato acrylic.... I hope GEC does it again, sometime soon. That's a great looking one you have!

    Looks like one of my favorite types of banana, partially green.

    I think your bananas are to green. IIRC, it's called 'ripe banana'(edited) so I'm going to let mine ripen for a while...the banana:cool:

    I think it is "ripe banana", and if you peel it, I think the cover is an amazing approximation of the skin and peeled meat of the nanner.

    Nice job GEc!

    Wow, that three blade looks like a stockman style setup. How many springs?

    It is essentially a stockman, EngrSorenson! Two springs, with a clip on one and a Sheepfoot opposite a pen on the other!
    I will post a blades-open pic anon!!

    The clip blade has smaller proportions, probably to fit the "back bend" of the congress pattern!!
