    Thanks, Jeff, that one cost me a pile, but worth it.

    A trivia question that maybe someone could answer. What was the last model GEC produced with hand written tube labels?

    When do we think GEC will start announcing some future patterns? I feel like for the full length of 2019 we knew what the next 3 knives would be. As far as I know there is a trapper in the pipeline but figured they would have officially announced it by now.

    It is curious that their schedule doesn't have at least the #23's listed yet. But, if you figure how many more #62's they have coming between the carver and f/f - they are probably showing you 45 days or more.

    That’s true, I guess in my mind they’re all the same pattern but I’m definitely oversimplifying it.

    I think Waverave probably has the best and most complete set of info that might have this info...excel spreadsheet.

    Tim, I'm gonna say the 43 Oregon Trapper. The 71 Bull Nose came next and had printed label.

    Lots of photos posted of the 23s being worked in the GEC "what's happening page".

    Anyone hear if all the 23s will be 2 blade trappers or will they make some single blade runs too? If they are all 2 blades my wallet is probably safe this time around but if there is a single blade offering I might have a dilemma on my hands when that CK reserves message goes out.

    A dealer mentioned to me that this will be a large run, there will be single blades, which I believe he said would have a liner lock.

    and.....confirmed by Mike above, these will be nice

    Oh boy, that's just the type of thing that would get that reserve finger twitchy. I dont own any GEC liner locks so it looks like GEC might win again.

    Oh, this sounds great! Would love to see a clip point, and in some flavor of dark or stripey wood...

    Yes , I got mad at GEC last year over this knife. GEC showed production line photos for about 3 days and pulled them. When I looked up the 2019 production numbers , these were for some kind of fishing event. GEC loves to tease on their customers. I was hoping for a #65 nifebrite to go with my Ben Hogan #65 spear blade autumn gold jigged bone knife. It did not happen. I am happy you got one. Thank You for sharing.
