Man, ooooooooooooooooooooooh man, just describing this knife and specifying the specs spilleth over with elegance and quality. 

Last weekend I helped a family member do some moving. In between picking up furniture I stopped twice to have a cigar.  Yeah, there wasn't much furniture, and I didn't do much work, BUT I did enjoy a couple of cigars!  Now, here's why I mention all this.  While smoking my 2nd cigar, I grabbed this GEC Moose knife and a tree branch and began a feeble attempt at whittling.  Yeah, I wasn't really whittling, it was more like bothering my knife.  I could almost hear the knife screaming, "REALLY, is this what I'm cut out for?"  ;-(

Fast forward a few days.

I pull the knife out to cut paper.  You know.  The old paper cutting test.  Yeah.

Amazing.  Perfect.  Razor sharp.  And, this is after I whittled and didn't think to put a new edge on it.  I guess it didn't need a new edge.  I've cut everything from paper to boxes in the last couple of weeks and this knife delivers every time.  Money!

I'm impressed with Great Eastern Cutlery knives.  I am.  Every knife they create and produce beckons quality.  GEC exemplifies the proud American worker and products of years gone by, smack dab in the middle of a society consumed with scratching-clawing penny savers.  GEC , on the other hand, over delivers on high quality, supremely manufactured knives meant to use and collect.    

Let's review, shall we? 

The TRIPLE F (Fit, Finish and Functionality) – 10.0
The knife is tight.  It's solid.  It's, well……… impecable.  The snap on each blade is solid, not gator like, but solid and I like that.  I'm knot a fan of nail breaking blade opens.
Knice long pull nail nicks.  I love that too!
Each angle fits perfectly.  The blades rest perfectly straight in their cavities.  And there's a thickness to the blades, over 1/16th"
Real, real knice swedge on each blade.  Just, just…..magnificent.  A perfect score in the Triple F!

Collectibility -10.0
Here's the scoop on Great Eastern Cutlery knives right now.  They've been in existence for less than 10 years, but I firmly believe these knives will command close to their original selling price in 20, 30, or 40 years.  Knot only do they perform at the highest level, knife enthusiasts are purchasing different models just to collect the sets manufactured.  Outside of CASE Knives I believe this is one of the hottest, most sought out knife in the industry! I know I want more!

Accessibility – 9.0
It's no secret I like auto assited open knives.  I do.  Any knife that requires both hands to open, gets a smidge of a demerit.  Even though I reside in the heat of the Sunshine State, I think of using this knife in a cold weather climate while hunting for deer in a snow storm and you need to scrape pine tree bark to build a fire .  See, that's where you have to remove both gloves, or at least one, to open a blade for scraping.  That's the pickle.  It's just my observation and consideration in this declaration. ;-)  

Value – 9.5
As mentioned above it's a $100 knife.  Will it outlast 5 twenty dollar knives?  I think so.  Will it be worth close to it's price tag if you resell it in 30 years?  I think so.
