  1. Quality going downhill

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2017

    I am in total agreement with Billy B and his assessment of the 54 big jack. i have 4 in different handle materials and they all have issues. Scratches..gaps..one has a bolster that is actually cracked end to end...and they all have literally ZERO talk...i have to close the blades with my hand. Too much quantity being pushed out with quality suffering over at GEC it seems...maybe they want to be like Case...and i just got a 38 special and it has no walk or talk either....so if you want a weak spring knife just get a Buck 302...its only $30..I wonder if the head guy at GEC would spend $100 for one of these?


  2. Missed the Mark

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    I have ordered quite a few of GEC's knives over the years...this particular configuration was a disappointment...I ordered 2 and all 8 bolsters were scratched and not just from packaging...bolster grinds from front to back were very unsymmetrical and just poorly executed...One blade could hardly be opened and the other's spring was so weak it was pitiful and felt like a different knife...this reminds me of Case Quality these days.

    I do not expect perfection in a production knife but in a knife of this price range I do expect more than this.

    I have loved the quality of GEC over the years but I'm wondering if I need to focus my expendable income elsewhere as they seem to be falling victim to speed and poor quality control.

    Not worth sending back in my opinion...just hope they see the signs and do something about it. Nothing against CK...wonderful to do business with and will continue to do so.

    Come on GEC...you are better than this...


  3. Solid fit and finish

    Posted by on 22nd May 2017

    The knife is put together well with solid fit and finish; Blade centering and grind look very good, no gaps between the bolsters and bone material. Just a well made knife. I gave it 4 instead of 5 it has just slight blade play which I know is common.
