Nice. How is the Moore Maker? Do you know who made that one? AFAIK, they have used a couple makers, but I know little of it.
It’s really quite nice. I’d say construction wise on par with any good example from case, with a little better finishing. These are made by Canal Street Cutlery, or rather the revised coop version that has since folded. I’m quite certain I read over on BF these in particular were made by Eric? (ea42 over there).
Cool. Thanks.

With over 40celcius here for the last few days, and apparently for the next week, this guy is putting in some serious overtime!

Beautiful scales. Are they burlap micarta?

Yup. Willem’s homemade burlap micarta. His newer stuff is nicer but nothing wrong with what I’ve got. This is Willem, or K’roo’s build of an idea I asked for. Sent him a rough design of what I call the “Chunky Drunk” and this was what he came up with. It’s a slipjoint pyytool caplifter.

In case it wasn’t clear why it's the Chunky Drunk...

The WE Knives Gentry is a stunning, more modern looking traditional knife. Just that price tag makes it a bit of a stretch for me. I've sweat this thing ever since it was released. Figured I'd post it up in case anybody has never seen it or would be interested.

Yes I’m down for the war what I would call practical patterns. I am going with the 62s and a Dixie stockman.

Absolutely loving this 93. The Oily Creek Bone is stunning in person.

This is getting a lot of negative attention on BF, but I’m actually looking forward to this one!

Always live when I stumble across a traditional thread. I found GEC a few years back and fell in love with many of the traditional patterns they offer. The #15 boys knife in EO configuration was by far the most desirable to my eye. These are a few of that pattern

I also love the #85 bullet end and #92 Eureka as well.

GEC 15 is a great pattern, a couple cousins as well...

Some of my other, more carried traditionals. It seems obvious I am drawn to singles.

I'm enjoying the pictures here. Thanks. I'm another one with a weak spot for GEC knives. In particular the ones with nicely done Ebony and blackwood and cocobolo. I've seen hundred year old ebony knives that still looked good too. They last if even just slightly cared for.

I wonder how long those woods will be available. That is one of my rationalizations when talking myself into a purchase. :)

Today’s carry. Getting anxious for the 33 Conductor, should start shipping to dealers tomorrow I’m thinking.

GEC 23 and 81

As much as I like GEC, I’ve acquired a number of other brands. Here is my Queen made Trestle Pine Knives “Topper”. It is one of my most carried, if you’ve seen some of my other posts you’ll know I’ve got a thing for caplifters. When I got it, I really should have sent it back. The blade and lifter were loose and the Sabre grind was so thick it was like trying to slice with a splitting wedge. The screwdriver was also too thick. I decided to try an fix the issues myself. I pressed and peened, ground and reshaped. Perhaps all the effort I put in makes me appreciate it more?
