Ice Out Contest and Current Knives Update

Just a brief update on the Ice Out Contest.  Temperatures are bouncing around between 40’s and 50’s and this morning down in the mid teen’s.  (in fact, we just had a brief snow squall) So overall the ice is melting but the progress has slowed.  There’s just a little water starting to show along the shore in places which is a good sign that things are melting.

Remember, this Friday is the last chance to place a guess.  No entry fee, no membership requirement in fact you don’t even have to be a TSA Knives customer.  Everyone is invited to participate in a chance to win a Trestle Pine Superior with Stag handles.  No strings attached.

The first of the GEC #48 Weasels arrived.  Basically a rework of the original #48 Dogleg.  Not exactly sure why it’s called a Weasel this time around, but a nice knife.

I also got a new release note from Chris at GEC that the #38 Special will be released this summer, June into July.  For a change, these will be an ‘open’ production run meaning dealers can actually order as many as they’d like.  The only allocated knives in the run will be the Stag.  Here are the details.

#38 Special Single Blade Muskrat Clip – 3.88″ long closed

Tidioute – Smooth bolster and cap end:
Jigged Bone – color to be determined
Exotic Mexican Bocote Wood
Red Linen Micarta

Northfield – single line – dimple bolster and cap end
Jigged Bone – color to be determined
Acrylic – color to be determined
Stag

I’m going to guess there could be a fair number of SFO’s tagged onto this run based on the limited number of handle options and the length of time they’re allowing for production.  Might be wrong, but this is a pretty limited handle selection for a new run.
