I received an email from Chris at GEC this afternoon regarding the upcoming Single Blade 78 American Jacks. These aren’t expected to ship until mid to late December and just Friday they were asking for early order commitments. Today, five days later, GEC is committing to building 1800 Tidioute and Northfields PLUS…….. 1000 SFO’s. That’s almost 3000 single blade 78’s.
I had placed an early order last Friday but cancelled it today. I think there will be plenty of knives available and most likely some pretty good ‘deals’ for the knowledgeable shopper. Unless they’ve increased their production capacity, this will tie up production for a considerable length of time so I don’t think we’ll see much else from GEC till well after the first of the year.
