66 Slims and Serpentine Jacks

The first of the recent 66’s arrived today and it’s worth mentioning the difference in the two knives.  From what I can tell, the 661214 is basically a redux of the original which was a popular seller.  The new 668214 is the version GEC is calling the “Slim” and indeed it is. 

The new “Slim” version on the left measures a scant .42″ compared to the chunkier standard  Model 66 on the right at .51″  The “Slim” weighs in at 1.9 ounces compared to the standard’s 2.6 ounces. 

I’m gonna stick my neck out and say I think these could be a very popular duo offering a slimmer carrying knife for ‘dress up’ or a slightly wider and heavier version for someone with a bigger hand.   As I said above, the original 66’s were a great seller and I think the Slim is going to follow suit.
