Jim Gill’s Slip Joint Pocket Knife

I met Jim Gill 6 years ago when I first joined the Arizona Knife Collectors Association. I became a fan of his work right away. His attention to detail puts him up there with the best of makers. He is meticulous in his craft and his knives show it. They are highly sought after by collectors and are hard to come by as he only crafts a few knives each year.

Here is a slip joint folder that he made. It is a great knife. Made of high polished 440c steel, the blade opens with absolutely no play. The titanium liners are filed work to give it exceptional beauty. But what sets this knife apart is the Lignum Vitae wood handles.

From the Caribbean, The Lignum vitae wood is very important for applications requiring a material with its extraordinary combination of strength, toughness and density. This  heartwood color can range from a pale yellowish olive, to a deeper forest green or dark brown to almost black. Grain has a unique feathered pattern when viewed up close. The color tends to darken with age, especially upon exposure to light. The grain of the wood is interlocked, sometimes severely so. Lignum Vitae is regarded by most to be both the heaviest and hardest wood in the world. Its durability in submerged or ground-contact applications is also exceptional. It is used in tool handles, mallet heads, bearings, bushings, pulley wheels, and turned objects as well as being used as for propeller shaft bearings on ships, and its natural oils provide self-lubrication that gives the wood excellent wear resistance.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Jim Gill’s Slip Joint Pocket Knife:

GEC Equestrian’s Trapper Knife w/Exotic Mexican Bocote Wood Handle

So I log into iKnifeCollector.com the other night only to come across a conversation between Hog and Tuna about a GEC knife up for bid on ebay. They were wondering if the knife was really a GEC knife or not. I did a quick internet search and came up with info showing it was a real GEC knife and shared the info with the guys. But, they still declined to make a bid which was ending in a few minutes. So I placed the bid and won the knife.

With a little more research, I found out that the knife was made in 2009 and only 35 pieces were made. Pretty happy that I bid and now am awaiting the arrival of my purchase.
