    Here’s a 2011 #53


    It’s a “2” model and used enough to wear out the etching.
    I guess I like it too much for heavy wear and tear.

    Anyone else feel like you can’t own one of those yellow Texas rose variants because you’ve never stepped foot inside of Texas?

    I think I read a comment from GEC somewhere, that they still had to meet a few obligations. I took it as, they may have had some under contract therefore still had to finish some SFO's.

    Perhaps one must even live in Central Texas. ;)

    Well just outside looking in- Texans seem to take some pride in being from Texas. As it is I have a “Pittsburg View of the World” mug at work, and I always get western PA folks excitedly (for a western PA person) asking if I’m from there... so then i end up explaining I had family there and I watch some joy leave their eyes. I could only imagine a Texan-on-loan might be more disappointed when I tell them I just liked the knife.

    Hey , I can humbly brag that I lived in Texas for two years ( or at least I set foot on it )
    Here is my much younger self at what I believe is the Naval Air station in Fort Worth TX :thumbsup::)


    Unfortunately this is the only yellow knife I own :p:D, not a yellow rose I am afraid
    (I should fix this one day )

    You believe correctly!

    F16 featuring a single P&W F100 engine- aging air superiority, but a classic. Aircraft get more sophisticated but there's still a place for the older technology. Perfect analogy for GEC.
