Re: Where to purchase GEC?

Early days of GEC their knives would sit at dealers for months. The Barlow I use to own was bought like a day or 2 after their release. Pretty much only have a few left as I sold a lot for a nice profit. They are very nice traditional slipjoints, but it takes a lot of effort to get them upon release...

Re: Bill Bagwell Passes

Loved reading his articles, and loved his bowies. After listening to James Keating talk about the design features of his bowies I wanted one bad. He was an icon among knifemakers and left his mark.

Re: Should military service be required?

While joining the Army was a good thing for me, I voted No. While being in the Army gave my life some focus, some job skills, and helped pay for college, I saw quite a few soldiers that were not cut out to be in the Army. I can only imagine how worse it could be if service was mandatory. Last thing ...

Re: Wrist Clocks

I've never been a person to wear a wristwatch. The only reason I wore them is out of necessity due to work. Needed a stopwatch feature in the Army to time my runs & used it for taking vital signs as a Medic. Once I got out of the Army I started using a more traditional watch as I didn't need a stopw...

Esee knives are contract manufactured. They probably used what Rowen was willing to work with.

Rowen builds Tops knives as well. Tops has been using S35VN for a little while on some models.

Re: Spyderco Medium Bench Stone - where does it lie ?

I've had my medium benchstone for years. It sits at my computer desk so I can sharpen knives while l playing on the internet. Periodically I will soak it in Simple Green to clean it. Great stone that I sharpen most of my knives on.

Re: Why the hate of Zome?

If I like the colors I'm ok with it. Just see no reason to get say, a Zome Delica, when it's just a color change over my regular Delica.

Re: Camping Craze

Right now we are still car camping mostly. Both of us backpacked & our family was active in Scouting. Still as I've gotten older creature comforts are nice. We've talked about getting a small camper (around 16' or so) when we get close to retirement.
