Oh My Charlie, this 720113LB is absolutely gorgeous. I think im in love....
Thanks for bringing it over from the previous page, Kelly!! They turn so fast, stuff gets lost!!
Here's one I took in trade so long ago, I can't remember when. It was before Bill put numbers on the knives, but I think it would be called a #735107?? Can anyone confirm that??
A 2007 NKCA youth knife with two shields, flush and square joints!!
A 721110LB in a deep Ruby Red!! This would make a nice carry over the Holidays!! Maybe??
This one has a PPP on the back! Wonder why?? First clip blade or something?? Have to look it up!!
Not a trapper collector, I just picked them up when I liked them! Gotta change my ways, now that I am retired! Money doesn't come in like it used to!! This is a nice GEC!!!
That's a beautiful lockback knife.
The grain on that Ram’s horn is gorgeous! I understand why they don’t use horn anymore, but man is it some nice looking stuff!
This picture isn't even close to all of them that have been produced!! The company could almost change its name from GEC to GET!!!
They have made many sizes of Trapper with numerous handles!! If you have one, or some, please post it/them!!!
@waynorth The one second from bottom has fantastic bone Charlie Is that Horsecut Bone?
Yes, It's Horsecut Bone! I didn't like it at first, but it's grown on me!!
Bright colors are nice, but dark and subtle is cool!!
Nice trapper "you-can't-lose-it" Yellow bone, slim Muskrat Clip and Half-Stops (my prejudice)!
What's not to like??
Per your request @waynorth

You are the Trapper King, Harry!! Nice gathering!!
Pardon my ignorance blokes, but are these 23 two blade Trappers only available if you are a member of a particular club or will the same pattern get a general release as well. The Trapper is my favorite pattern and I’ve never had a GEC version so this may be right up my alley.
They'll be available to the public. But if it is a short run, the collectors will line up in advance and the run could be fully subscribed at release. If you really, really want one, get on a dealer's waiting list. Mike at Collectorknives has one that's popular and public. Some other dealers you have to contact them to get put on the list, but you have to know to do so.
I should also have said that some dealers don't do lists, but "drop" the knives at a certain time. Really popular knives can sell out in a matter of a minute or two, so you have to find out when the drop is happening and then be standing ready with a fast computer and a fast connection. It's a royal PITA, but if you want it badly enough, it's worth it. You'll also see them pop up on the exchange and on other aftermarket sales sites because people buy multiples, either through fear of missing out or to have a bunch to choose the best from, or to flip and make money. Sometimes they go(quickly) at a reasonable price and sometimes they sell for double, or more, than retail. Once again, you have to be on it and be lucky. Here's hoping that it's a normal-sized run so we won't have to stand on our heads to get one.
So why not join the OKCA? They are good organization and deserve the support.
Sometimes it's the largest Knife show in America!! It goes up and down a little, as far as number of tables goes!! But the best in the west, and the best support for members!!!
This will be its 45th year!!
I can't wait to see the OKCA club knife for 2020!!
