Thanks, Chris. I had noticed your nice GEC #73 Scout single blade in Cocobolo, which caught my attention since I had my eye on one exactly like it. I actually pulled the trigger on it last night, so it should be here later this week.
I like a firm pull just fine, but didn't want a nail buster, so I have my fingers crossed on this one.
I had been debating between the linerlock and slippie versions, and ultimately decided on the slippie.
Generally, I was just interested in your thoughts on this knife.
Hey brother How have ya been? I wanted to invite yo to check out the WIP or Work In Progress Thread I am doing.. We are Forging a Meteorite into a damascus bar, Then making it into a awesome knife! Thought you might like to see the progress. :) I started a BLOG.. but dont like the way it goes backwards from oldest post to newest post.. Will make it hard to follow a WIP. So Im going back to the drawing board and gona try something else like a discussion in the meteorite group.
Chris, Thanks for the comments and checking out my knives. I like when you prompt me to your page as I love looking at your photos. Lots of great stuff. I also really like your blogs. Thanks for the great contributions to the site. It sure helps the rest of us learn and enjoy.
Chris, here is a citadel I bought about a month ago. I have a few good ones to show when I get them uploaded. Here is a start just for you. I've bought a few Bulldogs and a Fight'n Rooster sunfish . I will add them to my photos in the near future. I've been trying to catalog some of my cheap imported knives and get everything cataloged and listed. What a time consuming chore. I've also been trying to get everything I have on pictures.
Hi Chris, well that IE9 just about drove me to drinking. It took 2 or 3 weeks to figure it out, just as Hog and Scott gave me the answer. I changed back to IE.8 and everything was OK, had to go to my son for help, he loved it, he thinks he's a Guru or something like that,Ha Ha.Talk to you later Chris, Carl
Hi Chris, nice to know you, Glad you like my small collection of knives. I have a few more to photograph as I had trouble with internet explorer 9, which would not work on our site but I,ve changed back to I.E. 8 and all is well. I'll be talking with you. Carl
chris i read your write up on the tops knives.i could not stop i like the detail's you gave about each one ,it seemed like the one i was most taken with was the anaconda what a knife.and what you had to say about it with your field test i think i will look into getting one.thanks for your write up about top knives.and you to rick...
Chris, Thanks for the comment but I do not believe this knife is authentic. It is in mint condition and the workmanship is very proffessional. I surley wish it was legit. I have a significant collection of Case knives (none with blade stamping this old) and all of the research I have done I have not seen this specific pattern style in the Case lineup. If I can remember I will consult Jim Sargents opinion at our knife club show in August.
