I've had a number of Gene's knives, and enjoyed trying various builds, but I found his #7 Drop Point was pretty much the sweet spot for what I like. I ordered one in October of 2018. Then, as we all know, Gene had some health issues, and is now semi-retired, no longer taking orders. However, he very kindly let me know he'd fulfill my long-standing order and today I received the news it's shipping!

#7 Drop Point 7 1/8 x 3
S30V
Polished Green Linen Micarta
12 Pin SS Mosaics
Leather Sheath RH Loop.

Brad,

I agree with your assessment of Gene's #7. It will do pretty much anything a hunter needs to do with a knife. That's a beauty!

That looks like perfection. If you ever decide to part with it I’d definitely be interested.

That is a beauty, enjoy it! I had a #7 years ago with weathered bone scales. It was typical Ingram perfection and like a dummy something else came along and I sold it. Regrets...

I doubt Gene started it, but his knives were the first i saw and bought that had mosaic pins.

Always a classy touch to a knife.

Same as David Winston was the first knives i got with g10 pins.
