This knife is my fourth in this latest run of GEC 48s, the other 3 being single-bladed versions. All of them are excellent mechanically, and fit & finish are top-notch.
I knew that the African Blackwood was going to look great after seeing a few posted photos on the web, but what I didn't know was how much I was going to like this 2-bladed version.
The ground swedges and satin finish on the blades take the looks over the top, and those blades are easy to open and close while having a nice snap at any position. A home-run ball SFO knife for Collector Knives...thanks, Mike!

If your only gonna buy one #48, then here it is. The African blackwood with the satin blades , without the etching gives it such a classy look. The fit and finish is excellent. Collector Knives has the best Great Eastern Cutlery Special Factory Orders by far.

This is a well built knife with great finishing. The African Blackwood has just enough brown to show the wood grain. Really like the houndstooth shield. Feels slim in the pocket.
