Much like me  :rofl:.  I'm old enough to be retro or am I vintage?   

Vintage I reckon. Hope you haven't made it all the way to antique yet.     :D

Hows your 30 treating you?

Mine continues to look better and better.  With friends.

I've been wanting something with a Wharncliffe blade, and the K-32 looks pretty promising. While designed as a kitchen knife, it's got a carbon steel blade and a burlap micarta handle. Plus, the blades appear to be of decent thickness for general use.

The price is shocking--$32--and they're available direct from GEC.  No sheath though, and GEC makes nothing that fits. I suspect a sheath for a small fillet knife should work. I emailed GEC and they recommended a sheath that was long enough so that the pointy Wharnlcliffe tip would not stab through. I have a 6" fillet sheath I bought by accident for a Schrade Golden Spike, and it looks like it will fit well.




May buy all three--as together, they cost about as much as the average GEC folder.

I still love it but TBH having spent the last 19 or 20 months in back to back challenges I’ve not had a real chance to use it. Reckon it’s one of the prettiest knives I’ve ever seen.

Going to take a short break from challenges after the 90 day Soldier challenge and intend to give it and some others some use

That patina is coming on nicely Aloha :like:

Wish I’d bought one or two of these when I last ordered from the USA, postage is a killer, more than the knives themselves but you’ve now got me very tempted again :think: :)

I was tempted by those too Cody.  I think they'd make wonderful carry knives.
