    I did the same thing a year or so ago.
    I checked in with him a couple weeks ago and he said he was closely tracking the value of my ideas and would send a check as soon as I reached the price of the postage stamp.

    Evidently @Jarhead Greasemonkey is in the market if you need to release it.

  3. That is, in fact, correct.

    How many more variations of the 15 are they going to sneak in before the 85? It's like Oprah... "Here's a 15 for you, and here's a 15 for you, and here's another 15 for you..."
    Ironically, the only 15 I have is a Beer Scout. So here's to the (don't call it a) Beard Scout!

    Yeah, yeah... I don't have any pics of the Beer Scout...

    By putting on their cover "Don't call me a Beard Scout," I'm afraid they have sealed its fate as being called the Beard Scout. :D

    I'm sure they wouldn't mind if it was unofficially called a beard scout... There's what they can't say officially, and then there's what they wish they could say. That whole beer scout fiasco soured me when it came to the scouts.

    Really the beer scout fiasco? Not the other thing?

    I'm sure that's true. lol
    In my mind it's either "Beard Scout" or "Hipster Jack" and of the two I like the former better.

    Did GEC only produce the 78 in Canvas Micarta once (in one color)?

    On of those things was bound to happen- picking on GEC because they called a knife a beer scout and it could be confused with boy scout, or scout knife didn't really seem necessary. (unless I'm misunderstanding what happened there.)

    edit: now that I think about it, there's a lot of things that might have been distasteful in the scouts, and I might not be understanding which you're referring to, so I'll not go into it.

    No, I understand what you're talking about. I'm saying there is something way worse that soured me on the boy scouts. (The Catholic Church and Penn State Football as well)

    While I don’t really like it myself, I’m sure the urban jack will find its place w people that want it, the same way the b&s did.

    I’m wondering how many cocobolo 15s were made. They seemed to disappear fast and my understanding was they were making more than usual. But now they seem to have moved onto the urban jack.

    Not upset, just wondering.

    GEC doesn't ship everything at once, so more cocobolo's may show up in the shipments of urban jacks.
