Just uploaded the latest 45’s into the store this AM. There are several different handle materials and I do like the Snakewood. It’s nice and ‘snakey’! Also like the looks of the new shields.
The question came up a couple of days ago as to what the difference is between the Lumberjack and the Roughneck. Not a lot. From what I’ve observed, the Lumberjacks bore the Tidioute trademark, carbon steel liners and of course the saw-blade in the 2 blade version. The Roughnecks have the Northfield trademark, brass liners, and the big pen and small clip on the 2 blade version. And of course the blade etch and the tube labels are different.
This will give you an idea of the size of the clip blade.
Wherever you’re at, I hope your enjoying some time with friends and family. Or maybe just kicking back and taking a pause before going back to the daily grind. Whatever the situation, make sure you take a couple of minutes to quietly give thanks to all our warriors that have passed on.
Finally put the latest 235212’s in the store this morning. In the lot are a group of Burnt Stags. There were a total of 11 plus a prototype made with Burnt Stag handles. It’s another batch of nice chunky stag. Worth noting is the fact that this is the first run of 2 bladed Northfield Burnt Stag 23’s we seen since 2009. Furthermore, we’ve seen very few 2 bladed 23’s run in the last couple of years in any handle material.
The two blade 23’s have always been popular and it’s good to seem more come through!
Finally got around to updating the “Current Inventory” list this morning. My apologies it’s taken so long as I know there are a lot of you that check it on a regular basis. There’s just been so many coming in and going out the last week or two I haven’t taken the time to update things. But as of this moment….it’s current.
Paul sends me a set of rattles and then this photo. There has to be a way to use this photo in a GEC promotional ad. Wait a minute Sue, I think there could be the seed for a new GEC label here!!!! Chris, if you’re looking for the name of a new knife model, how about……… The Diamondback! or maybe the Rattler and then a smaller knife called The Baby Rattler???? So whaddya think gang? Paul, I think you may have inadvertently stumbled onto something here …..hmmmmmmm……
Actually, I believe this may have been the prelude to a fresh batch of chili. I may use the picture as a screensaver to look at this winter when it’s -40F to remind myself, this is why I live where I do!!

To place a bid, fill in the info at the bottom of this post in the leave a comment area with your bid amount.
Bidding starts NOW and bids will be accepted until Noon Central Standard Time Monday, May 22, 2012.
Fair warning, don’t wait until the last minute to place a bid. This isn’t an Ebay type of auction where bids show up immediately when they’re placed. If you haven’t posted on the blog before and occasionally even if you have, posts are randomly subject to approval before they show up on the blog. So if I’m not sitting by the computer, you might place a bid and if I don’t approve it for a couple of hours, it won’t show up right away.
So what are you bidding on??? TSA Knives, is putting up for auction a 2006, Great Eastern Cutlery #23 Smooth White Lasered Bone serial #203, with 440C blades. Great Eastern made just 81 of these in ’06. So how did it end up with serial #203?? In 2006, all of a pattern were consecutively numbered without regard to handle material. For instance, in ’06 they made a total of 227, 440C GEC’s in 4 different handle materials. All of them fall within the same serial number range. This knife was obviously made toward the end of the run.
