Yes. They seem like s small operation. Their knives are really well made. Perhaps not as refined in some ways as gec but they've got titanium liners, mosaic pins, bronze washers and premium steels.
If you're wielding the sharpest tool in the shed, who's going to say that you aren't...?

I’m expanding my little collection (we knew it was going to happen didn’t we, Precious). Adding a Great Eastern Cutlery 62 Easy Pocket Congress in unicorn ivory, and a 33 Conductor (clip main with a pen secondary) in Sambar Stag.

Photos later.

Well, finances dictate otherwise. If anyone gets a Conductor, please post photos.

Sadly, I lost my #92 Talon 2 weeks ago. That knife had a story to tell, not to mention thousands of hours of pocket time. I am pretty sure I left the slip laying on the checkout counter of our local pizza shop and obviously the next person in line liked it enough to keep it. When I went back an hour later the people who work there (whom I trust to be honest individuals) said they hadn't seen it or had anyone turn in anything. Let's have a momnent of silence.....

That is a real bummer. I like them but the after market price is too steep for me. BTW, spoke with my friend Austin of Traditional Pocket Knives. His batch of 33 Conductors in stag sold out in 4 minutes. I didn’t get one because I decided to save some $s.

The feeding frenzy for traditionals at stores like KSF (who's sales model I like) is absolutely absurd. Their individual photos and purchase links for each individual stag or wood grain pattern makes sure you know exactly what you are getting, but I think I have missed no less than of the last traditionals I've tried to snag. CK can be a challenge at times too. And the capitalist world holds true as they immediately show up on the secondary market at significantly inflated prices. So the troubles of sprint runs and limited editions may actually be worse with traditionals than modern folding knives.

I got one of the jigged bone 33s a couple weeks ago, I didn’t fancy any of the stags. I’m very picky on my stag knives and this time around it was an absolute crap shoot. Thank god I have a great relationship with a local dealer who holds one of each new release for me if I want it.
