Absolutely! I don't have as many Case knives as I do SAKs, but I'll post some.

If you're wielding the sharpest tool in the shed, who's going to say that you aren't...?

Ugh I haven't bought a GEC since I bought 4 different Pembertons earlier last year. It's getting to me.

BUT I bought this. A modern a traditional, a Tony Bose design. JE Made Zulu. My second JE Made. My first is a Lanny's Clip with a beautiful desert ironwood and a handground satin blade. The backspring blends almost seamlessly with the blade when open. It's a beauty. So, I wanted more of a user. So this one, the Zulu, is stonewashed and just titanium but does have three nice brass circle inserts for accent. Same great snap and quality, just less fancy. Also the "Zulu Spear" style of blade as seen on traditionals is a great great blade shape. Almost a combination of sheepsfoot and spear point. Very practical. Also, I'm all about texted and contoured titanium.

Nice, VashHash. Reminds me there are a couple of SAKs on my shopping list.

One of the things that is a real turn on for me with this knife is the lack of brass. The scales or liners are nickel silver rather than brass as with my other traditionals.

I hear folks talking about 'all-steel' construction, but i have the impression that it's nickel silver used in place of the more commonly used brass alloys. Anyone know more about that? To my eye the scales/liners match the the bolsters and caps, which are nickel silver, more closely than they match the steel springs.

Regardless, it looks darn fine to me.

Here's about half what I have. Sadly only use about 3 of them. A couple will be gifted tomorrow.
Does a sak qualify as traditional?

Those are some great knives. Which pattern is the upper right most of the photo?

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.
I really like that Queen Jack.

This is a Solingen made knife with two blades and a scissor. It's 4.5mm thick, or 5/32 inch.

Thanks, that one would be a gec 735213 ebony. I guess it's like a large trapper.
My favorite 73 is the bodark handled single blade, right below the sak in that picture.

Looking good. The Eureka Jack pairs so well with a modern. Did your new GEC arrive?
