Here's just a little assistance......
And I wouldn't worry about carrying it
No I'm not. I've been carrying this knife for 2 days. Now i'm not sure if I should carry it. Looks like the production numbers are pretty low.
Are you familiar with GEC's numbering system..if not will lend a hand...if you notice the last two numbers refer to the year made......and GEC just release the 2012 Totals you'll need to wait another year.

We will be there, you?

Just posted on the GEC Website:

I've heard lot's of talk about GEC's stout backsprings. A very stout backspring,together with a positive half-stop, almost eliminate the need for a locking blade. If a person would use the knife hard enough to overpower the backspring, than the half-stop would catch before the blade closes on your hand.
It has a very stout half stop. I don't hunt much and have never really had any preference one way or another. A lot of people do though.
Well I tell you this. I wish I had had a boys knife like this when I was a kid. I took it to work today and showed it off. I really had to grin when the guys started cupping there hands around it to see if it really glowed in the dark. They came up grinning every time. It made them feel like a kid again too.
