Great Estern Cutlery: USA tradition's appeal

Hello everyone, today I would like to introduce you two Great Eastern Cutlery pocket knives: the first one is the NORTHFIELD CUTLERY #42 LOCKBACK AUTUMN AMBER BONE aka “Missouri Trader”, the second one is the NORTHFIELD CUTLERY #23 Pioneer Jack Cocobolo wood. Specs: Missouri Trader Total lenght: 193,5mm Blade lenght: 82,5mm Blade steel: 1095 Tool Steel (Carbon) Lock: Lock Back Closed Lenght: 107,9mm Handle material: Autumn Amber Jig Bone Bolster(s): Nickel Silver Liner(s): Brass Wheigt: 102 grams Made in: USA Pioneer Jack Total lenght: 210,0mm Blade lenght: 95,0mm Blade steel: 1095 Tool Steel (Carbon) Lock: --- Closed Lenght: 114,0mm Handle material: Cocobolo Bolster(s): Nickel Silver Liner(s): Brass Wheigt: 178 grams Made in: USA In my opinion GREAT EASTERN CUTLERY folders are just at the top in terms of fit and finish, craftsmanship, material’s quality. That said, I found that GEC pocket knives are great also in terms of toughness and efficiency on the field, so don’t worry and use your Northfield UN-X-LD, Tidioute or Great Eastern Cutlery for, your pocket knife will do what he need to do. I also like a lot the history behind the different models, and the feeling that every single model gives to me, as I was a Missouri pioneer, a Great North trapper, even a fisherman or a simple farmer, depending of the models…call me mad, but I feel like this using my GEC’s pocket knives daily. Sadly, it’s not easy to find a GEC pocket knife here in Europe, but luckily there is the GEC Online Store for …if you are quick enough, because the GEC pocket knives are often limited editions and are very collectables, so that means that they will not stay long time at the store. I firmly guess that a Great Eastern Cutlery pocket knife it’s mandatory for the ones who loves the great USA pocket knives traditions. Ciao, Alfredo
