WELCOME HOME !

Hey everyone thanks for letting me join. I have a question and I hope you experts out there can give me the answer I'm looking for which at this point is any answer that is better than nothing will help. lol 

I have a swiss army knife that says its a Officer Sussie and on the handle it has gold emblem with the letters G T E and three ruby looking stones under the letters I have looked and looked and can't find nothing about it. So if anyone knows anything about it please let me know. Thanks

A good photo would certainly help, Tommy.

Swiss Army supplies promotional knives to countless companies.

There was a company called GTE that morphed into Verizon. There is a fair amount of information about it on Wikipedia.  "GTE Corporation, formerly General Telephone & Electric Corporation (1955–1982),[1] was the largest independent telephone company in the United States during the days of the Bell System. The company operated from 1926, with roots tracing further back than that, until 2000, when it merged with Bell Atlantic; the combined company took the name Verizon." Perhaps this is the same GTE on your knife.  Really hard to tell. 

Found this looking for information.

Doesn't say what the stones mean though.

Best guess would be for 15 years service.

This WorthPoint listing shows one with diamonds, where the second photo comes from.
