Nice Hobbs. What handle material is that?
I've had a 99 in my pocket most of the week. The spear point with burnt stag handles is the one I have. GEC did a nice job on the #99, great gentlemen lock back.

Thanks GCE61 !!!
The cover is Autumn Gold Smooth Bone. The 99 carries nicely as it's so thin. The more I carry it, the more it moves up in my EDC Lol. I have a Farm & Field 99 with a spear, in Maroon Micarta that is much thicker, but also much lighter.

I'm just waiting for the 83 lockback to finish production. I think I'm going to love that one even if it is a bit shorter than this 99 Wallstreet. I can't for the life of me figure why they feel the need to put a lanyard barrel on a small lockback like the 83 though.

GEC is working on the 83 right now. Here's the specs. I want a Tidioute Drop Point in Gabon Ebony but the Northfield Stag Clip Point (not represented in the drawing below) will likely be pretty dang awesome too.



... and some production pictures of the 83 ...

I have a 99 Wallstreet also in horn. I have had it in this thread a number of times. You are right for gentlemanly use it is hard to beat. I rank it up there with my falkniven gentleman pocket knife. Which coincidentally is in today's around the house carry.



Sorry I was absent all week last week. I was painting the down stairs. I used one knife all week a victorinox alox to open paint cans and plastic wrap.

Dining room kitchen and family room were repainted. I set up my second set of aperion in times 630 series speakers for the downstairs, they are partnered with an onkyo txnr838 reciever, oppo blue ray, xbox one and a Sony 400 disc cd changer. Coming this week is a sharp 70"led flat screen to replace the little 46 inch samsung.

For size comparison and scale since the picture above doesn't give a clue.

The color on my 83 is different in different light ... from a sorta violet through the grays and into black. Regardless of dye intensity one way or the other, I'm loving the smooth camel bone. The finish is excellent.

Buck 55 left ~ Tidioute 83 right ... on 'go' ... hut hut ...
