I”m in the process of ‘fleshing’ this out, but in a nutshell here’s the deal for the next knife giveaway.
A suggestion was recently made to me that if someone came up with a ‘new’ idea for a handle material for the GEC’s………it MIGHT just see production. I know it’s pretty hard to imagine there are any options left that Great Eastern hasn’t already done, but, it’s worth a shot.
I know one idea I’ve had is running a 23 or a 73 Linerlock in Blaze Orange G-10 or Micarta. Last fall I sold a pile of Bark Rivers with the Blaze Orange G-10 and I think it makes a world of sense for a hunting knife and I think the Linerlocks would make a dandy hunter. I have no doubt that there are a bunch of you out there that have had similar ideas about a new handle. So here’s the deal…
- Post your ideas for a new handle material, color, pattern etc as a response to this entry.
- Which pattern knife would you like to see it on
- NAME IT!!!!! We have to have a name for your idea
Try as I might, I just can’t make it any simpler then that. For the time being, I’m going to leave the ‘end date’ of the contest open to give everyone a little time to come up with some ideas. But let’s see what we can come up with by mid July.
IF we can get a ‘winner’ and Great Eastern will run with it, the ‘creator’ is going to be the proud owner of one of their personal creations with all the recognition due them. And think about it, how many of you have ever had a shot at submitting an idea that actually had a chance at becoming a production knife?????
Should someone come up with just a ‘barn burner’ of an idea, and you really like it too, speak up. If someone comes up with a great idea, I promise I will lobby the hell out of GEC to run it. In the meantime, spread the word around and let’s see what we can come up with!!!
