So as it turns out, my belated Father’s Day gift adorned in wenge wood pattern, matches almost perfectly with the bocote wood I recovered my knife in just the day before! The knife was also a gift from my wife and kids, Xmas I believe.

That Bocote is beautiful wood. I want a GEC #38 in Bocote. Nice knife you have.

These are my 3 latest traditional knives, a GEC 06 with blue jigged bone, a GEC 29 in acrylic, and a Queen Heritage Jack with wood covers.

All of these are excellent in terms of craftsmanship and they all slice things up very well.

Just picked up a GEC 29 in bloodwood. Gotta love an awl, so handy!

Anyways, this one’s special for a reason other than being a great knife. You see it has the cloud shield, GEC is calling it a keyhole shield but I’ve always called it and seen it called a cloud. The cloud is of significance because we always said our sweet old girl Lily was so soft it was like petting a cloud. We had to put her down just two days before this arrived in the mail.

Condolences for you and Lily. That’s always hard.

Yes, great knife and that awl has proved versatile and useful.

I grew up from when I was born until I was 25 with my parents always having Golden retrievers (3 of them) they are hands down my favorite dogs ever. I feel your pain and miss all 3 of mine as well.

In high school in 2000, I actually won a scholastic award for photo I took of my Golden "Goldie" the one I grew up with. She made it in our yearbook that year as well. It's a beautiful photo...not to toot my own horn. Will have to find it and take a photo of it.
Currently have 17 :spyder: 's in 13 different steels.

They're supposed to be worth the money though he has soured people. I think warranty issues but I'm not sure and shouldn't say anything.

I want one but am afraid of that lil nub that sticks out
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Love it, it’s a nice hefty traditional. Really digging the Sucker Rod wood. Nice pull and snap close.

Oil Field Jack? That is totally bad ***!

The sucker rod wood is a fashionable touch.

Cool. I considered the sucker rod wood too, but the Micarta should pair well with my Shaman. :cool:

The Oil Field Jack landed yesterday. It is really nice. This is my first and only GEC. I am not too into traditionals, but have been waiting for a GEC that suited my taste and this one is it. I don't think this bug bit me as hard as the :spyder:, so doubtful i will buy many more, except maybe as gifts. I grew up in small town PA, so the manufacture resonates with me. If you haven't seen the factory tour videos on YT, they are worth a watch. This is the first part of three if you are interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeHWa5jyO74

Me too Enactive! I don't have any GEC's yet, but a small collection of Case. My sons and I get up to the Case Museum at least once a year. I've been meaning to go to the GEC plant.

Cool, Barry! My grandpa was fond of Case too.
