    Cut this one back a bit. The original handle length fit very nice but the sharp tip was pokey in the pocket. Little long. I cut off about .5” and pinned in a piece of curly birch and a bit of brass. No, it drops in much better in the pocket. I’ve loved folders my whole life but a few years ago, set out to make a short, handy non folding pocket knife


    This was length when I finished last night. Pokey

    Steel pin was epoxied from bone to brass

    Clarification. I have been seeing my Physician for years. She’s aware of every one of my bad habits. When she asks if I’ve done this or that, we’re both prepared for her lecture to follow. At this point, the questions are asked and I always respond with “I’ve been a good boy,” wait a couple of beats, then say well...except for...First the laugh, then the lecture. At this point, she knows precisely what I’m going to have, and where I’m going to have it.:)

    As much as I like my tree shots, this one really could have gone so very very wrong, as it's surrounded by only rocks and the parking lot. Luckily no Lambs were injured. This will be my carry for a while, I'm quite sure.

    Awesome, imo these are some of GEC's best. :thumbsup: Your photo nicely shows how the spear on the 15 and 68 is not the same.

    Today this one's helping at work. I had to give my Robeson stag jack a day off. :D

    I like that. What model number is it, and what is the closed length?
