Great Eastern Cutlery is a knife company in Titusville, PA which is committed to building knives like "they used to be." The company was founded by master knife makers Bill Howard and Ken Daniels. Bill Howard was the chief knife designer at Queen for years, so you know you can trust these guys to produce top quality knives.
#61 Congress was introduced in 2009 and measures 3.75" closed.
The Congress pattern knife was introduced in the early 1800's and was one of the earliest patterns created especially for the American market. The sheepsfoot and pen blades are extremely useful knife blades.
Great Eastern Cutlery released this pattern with somewhat softer springs than their other knives. The blades have great walk and talk with very nice half stops.
At just under 3 oz, this is a very pocket friendly pocket knife.
The blades are made from 1095 carbon steel.
