  • Quote from jan: “@avoidspam sweet pics mate. Am I correct to assume the Gillies Savoyard and the Pena are customs? Fantastic how the Mokis blend in with those. I'm particularly fond of the Blakinstons Fish owl despite the funny name. Could you maybe please take a picture of it next to the #72? ” Sorry @jan, I didn't get a chance to do this. We're busy planning to go traveling at the moment so everything is a bit upside down! To summarize the #72 from GEC follows the traditional American pocket k…

  • I'm raising some funds to head off into the blue yonder...... Hey, ho. SPF The first is a Pena Lockback. This knife was designed to be a full takedown. CF covers over orange G10 and G10 bolsters. Hollow ground CPM 154 steel. Based on the Remington pattern but, as is the case with Pena a well proportioned knife. Everything is flush as you'd expect. I have convexed the edge bevel but you can easily sharpen it on all the standard methods. It has been lightly carried. Total length 18.5cm Blade 8.2cm…

  • Hi @jan the Pena is a custom but Gilles (Fontenille Pataud) is a French production knife company I'll try to get them together over the weekend

  • Quote from Platinum: “Quote from avoidspam: “Aye, classiness to be sure. I like the original frame shape too. Not sure about the (CF?) pivot though.... He's made quite a few like that mind so i guess it works... ” I think its a faux pivot plug Standard peened/unsupported pivot with a round carbon fibre plug/inlay on top Not sure ” Ah, yes that makes a lot more sense

  • Quote from hughtrimble: “I think @avoidspam has that steel in his GB folder ” I do and I like it. I'm not a steel expert but I've always liked D2. Very similar but takes an edge a little easier perhaps. Nice stuff

    Quote from Skellz: “Fallkniven TK3? K&T have one just under £200 image-proxy ” Was just about to say the TK3! (and TK4, my work knife for a long time). Great knife but I reprofiled the edge on mine as I thought it was a bit obtuse. The tip is a little too upswept for me as well

    Quote from Platinum: “Quote from Jimmypie: “@Platinum I thought the GEC was SS? Or is it brass liners ? It's a lovely pattern and ticks a lot of boxes , I was searching around but don't really know what I'm looking for ” Quote from hughtrimble: “They're not all brass (I hate the stuff too) but it might be that their back locks all are.

  • Ah, okay last time I looked he had some in stock. He still has several Tidioute #15's with the cap lifter secondary blade... If you go on Greateasterncutlery.net they have a list of dealers

  • Quote from Oxford_Guy: “Quote from avoidspam: “The couple of #15's I've had have had quite light pulls. By that I mean the blades have been relatively easy to open ” How does the pull compare to an alox SAk like a Pioneer? Lighter or a bit harder? I like a medium-to-heavy pull I think! ” Very similar, possibly even a little lighter. This run might be a bit different, if you are ordering from Mike I'm sure he'll give you a good idea

  • Quote from hughtrimble: “@Chui Northwoods (know as you no doubt know, now owned by KnivesShipExpensively) is essentially just a brand name stuck on the wares of actual makers like Queen and GEC, so some Northwoods are GECs, but others aren't. Only the afis like @avoidspam will realise ” I just though a bit of background history might be nice....

  • Brrr! Coors Light! Punishment enough I think!!

  • Mind you if @Chui had committed that faux pas over on the American sub forum it would have been 50 lashes!!

  • Okay, so a @Hattori Hanzo was pondering the recent run of #74's by GEC. Hopefully this will help... image-proxy Here's a pic if my Esky zulu alongside a #73L (linerlock) scout for comparison. The Esky zulu is a SFO by Knivesshipfree and is based on the #74 frame. Blade thickness wise there is very little between the #73 and #74. The bulldog is also the same stock. Unfortunately I have reprofiled all of them to convex edges so I cannot recall exactly how thick the Bulldog was behind the edge comp…

I have a 73 and was a little gutted about how thinly ground it is, was hoping it would have had a sturdier blade similar to the bull buster. ” The differences are subtle and mainly revolve around the frame shape. The 74 is cleaner and more rounded in my opinion. One significant mechanical difference is that the bolster on the #73 slipjoint is flat across the top and flush with the end of…

  • The blade will be ground similar to the #73 I expect.

  • Quote from Chui: “- couple picked up s/hand image-proxy 4-blade Congress Canoe edgematters.uk/attachment/2598…35fc28d39f0a783540be38732 ” Nice. Though I suspect that the congress may have been made by Northwoods when they were still going. The Canoe would have been made by Queen Cutlery for Northwoods when they stopped their own production. Bill Howard who set up GEC used to work for Queen (hence the similarities in a lot of petterns). GEC have since taken over Queen too. Derrick Bohn Knives Shi…
