    Mailman brought a 13 and the final piece of my 62 collection today. Both are excellent and will fit into the collection nicely. With GEC closed, I guess I'll have to turn to the secondary to get my fix now...

    I second that thought on the 62. I got one heading my way soon. ✌

    I am making headway on my 78 single blade collection, over the halfway point now :)

    Nice 13. They are the reason I didn't buy any 62's. I prefer the blade length and profile of the 13.

    Nice collection going. I do like that yellow acrylic. Has it been used on anything else?

    It's called Yellow and Black Swirl, and I haven't seen it on anything else.
    It's possible that GEC has used it on something else, I just haven't seen it.

    Since it seems I'll be waiting on my pocket Carver and 23 for a while I caved in and now have a 82 Dixie stockman in elderberry on the way. I've been eyeing it for months. Good thing there are still plenty of nice GECs sitting on supplier's shelves to satisfy my cravings.

    Question:
    Is there a website that lists (a) What the various GEC patterns are, preferably with pictures? And (b) The closed size of each pattern number?
    I couldn't find such at either GEC's website (including the PDF Download total production numbers pages), the All About Pocket Knives site, nor the dealer sites I looked at.
    Even some of the knives the dealers have in stock did not give the closed length in the description.

    Charlie, you and Bill do some pretty "radiant" work, together!
