    I’m sorry to hear the news about Onearmbladenut- He sure was enthusiastic. One of those people who’s personality is so big he becomes part of the tapestry.

    RIP Kenny, I didn't get to know him as well as others but his love for GEC and traditionals was very much evident. Hopefully no one thinks this is in bad taste, I personally think with his sense of humor Onearmbladenut would approve. I'll carry my Calfpen to represent GEC

    And if you all would forgive me of a non GEC pic in this thread, I will carry this one in his honor as well the rest of the week.

    I don't have an appropriate TC so the Case will fill in, I think he'd appreciate the "one arm" gesture. Prayers for his family:thumbsup:

    Infectious passion and love for knives as stated, and a good guy. I wasn’t around here yet, but always read something or other GEC with his input, and enjoyed the ride through his words. His kindness came through. RIP Kenny.

    Sorry for the loss of Kenny.

    I have been away from the Gec scene for about 6 yrs. It seems to have exploded. On the bright side my modest collection is worth more. That said new knives seem like unobtainium! Has this hobby been overrun by knife flippers or is it just supply demand?

    It's both... Flippers can't solely account for all the knives being snatched up in seconds. They've become increasingly popular. However, the flippers can be blamed for the price hike on the secondary market and dishonest retailers.
