I just finished putting up the early order link for the upcoming GEC Whaler, Boys Knife and the new Gunstock. PLEASE don’t call or email asking to be put on the ‘reserve’ list. It’s pretty simple to place an early order online and it makes life simpler for all of us.
All of the early orders will require a deposit. It worked quite well in the past and reduced the number of orders that were placed and cancelled. Gotta have a little skin in the game as they say. When the knives come in you’ll be invoiced for the balance due. Domestic shipping is included in the price. Overseas shipping will be billed at the normal rates.
The deposits are non-refundable UNLESS… GEC changes the handle material or they don’t deliver the quantities they promised me. If by any remote chance they don’t deliver the promised quantity, the orders will be filled in the order received.
The prices are yet ‘to be determined‘ by GEC. I’m hesitant to say this but the 2011 Cocobolo’s were in the $150 range, soo…. I would guess the Whalers are going to be somewhere in the $170-$190 range. I know I’m sticking my neck out and I’m not making any promises, but everyone’s gonna ask and that’s my best guess.
I don’t have pix of the 15’s coming through with the Bail & Chain, but hopefully everyone has an idea what they’re talking about. As soon as a picture or drawing comes up I’ll get it posted.
The 46 Whaler’s will be identical to the original with a large and small 1095 Pen Blade. Fair warning, this is going to be a hot product.
The new 44 Gunflint looks nice and I do like the brass bolsters and the UN-X-LD stamp on them. I think this will be another winner.
