Didn't think I wanted anything on that frame, but I might go for a pocket carver.
I don’t buy back ups of knives, but I’m getting the ivory version because, well, ivory, and I would hate to lose one and have to pay secondary market prices for another. For me, it is almost the perfect EDC knife.

I like the higher material strength and I loathe the way brass can develop that green verdigris over time in certain conditions.
These GEC Crownlifters are examples of their all steel construction models :
Hi Michael, as always ... beautiful!
Nice trio! I quite enjoy my Tidioute 86 and 92. They compliment each other so well. When you want the full hand-filling handle jumbo jack it is. When you want something ~30 percent lighter and slimmer, but still big enough for a large hand, Eureka!
