Used GEC’s for Sale ~ First up: #57 Burnt Stag (SOLD)

SOLD

I’m thinning the herd a bit gang.  I’ve got a few Great Easterns that aren’t getting used and it’s time to let someone else put them to good use.  Some started life as EDC knives and some were ‘first run’.  If you’re interested in any of them, drop me an email at greg@tsaknives.com as I’m not going to be listing them in the store.  So here’s the first one.  Stay tuned for more.

SOLD


First up, Northfield 570311 Burnt Stag EDC.  Not sure what the flaw was, but it’s a great knife.  Condition is 95% with minor scuffing on the bolsters and it has been sharpened.  It comes with the original tube.  Price $55.00 shipped.


Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Just a quick Happy Thanksgiving wish to everyone.  We’ve got a get together planned with some close friends and look forward to sharing a meal with them.  As usual, I feel like I’ve personally got a lot to give thanks for this year and a lot of it’s owed to you.

Have a safe and happy Turkey Day!!!!

Elephant Ivory 33’s and some 46 EDC’s

The Elephant Ivory 33’s came through today and they’re a really nice looking little knife.  There should be a few more of these floating around out there as this was a run of around 50 pieces.  One disappointment is the lack of any identifying marks that this is Ivory.   Mammoth Ivory, Genuine Stag, Primitive Bone, Natural Stag all get a special etch and a COA but the Ivory comes only with the COA, no etch.  To a lot of folks, it looks like Ivory Casein.

The other item worth mentioning is a really nice group of EDC Whalers that came today.  There is Cocobolo, Ebony and Antique Amber with a minor flaw that isn’t going to make a bit of difference to someone looking for a very cool EDC to carry around.

New Single Blade Whalers and first of the Bullet End Punches

First is the 85 Bullet End Jack with the punch.

Neat looking knife, and I’ve actually been using one of the first series with the Wharncliffe, Coping and Clip blades. 

Then we have the Single Blade Whalers.

It differs from the original Whaler in that it obviously has just the single large Pen Blade AND it has a cutout in the handle.  By the time you’ve got your fingers all the way down in that notch, you’ve got about as good a grip on that monstrous blade as you can possibly get!!!  In fact, by my rough measurements, it’s almost 29/32″ from the top of the blade to the bottom of the notch. 

A message from WWP to all of you …..

I think this deserves to be shared with all of you that have participated in the Wounded Warrior Project Auctions.  Thanks and take the time to thank a Vet today!!!
Greg

Support wwp today!

Dear Greg,

Veterans
Day is an important holiday. It is a day set aside for Americans to
honor and pay respect to our brave, patriotic veterans — men and women
who have made extraordinary sacrifices for our safety and freedom.
Unfortunately, many discount the day’s true meaning, viewing it as just a
day off from work or an opportunity for store sales.

Honoring Veterans Today and Every Day

I would like to send a special thank you to everyone who sent a message of gratitude to injured warriors.

Your messages have been shared with these warriors on a special WWP message board.

But
as a supporter of Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), you show your
appreciation for America’s veterans every day — and, for that, you have
my heartfelt gratitude.

Today, I ask that you
celebrate these brave heroes by offering them a small token of your
appreciation: a simple thank you for their service. A sincere “thank
you” and a handshake from a passerby can mean the world to a veteran,
young or old.

One of the most important things to remember is
that thousands of U.S. families still have loved ones in harm’s way.
These warriors should never be forgotten — and they never will with WWP
supporters like you by their side.

So, on this special day —
and on behalf of all the U.S. service members you are helping — I want
to thank you for honoring veterans all through the year.

With many thanks on this day of honor,

Steven nardizzi, signature
