Under production totals on the GEC website, let me see if I can add it from my phone
Just scored a #23 Woodland Micarta Liner lock at DLT Trading! They have 7 left.
Jeff, I didn't know that. Not sure what the process was for that, I would think the serialized knives would always be listed, on the website at least. Although it's kind off fun researching a GEC knife, it would be nice to see some referencing from the maker. In the case for this knife, #23 oak leaf, researching has been tough!
Fred.... I have found that there were quite a few styles that are not mentioned in the book. I have a few short runs not mentioned.
That's some great info! It's weird to me that it's not listed in the book,"Great Eastern Cutlery- An American Tradition".
Also strange is that on the bolster, which I forgot to mention and is visible on the pic I submitted, is the number 176. Which means there must have been more then 81 produced?
Although that knife reads 1 of 250 in reality in 2006 the smooth white laser GEC knife production total was 81. It was also the first laser handle done by GEC.. That much I am sure of, what comes to mind but I cannot find verification of it is that this was the first GEC 23 made with no shield.
In 2006 GEC branded knives were made with 440C stainless steel blades, given the trademark acorn shield and Cyclops Steel Works tang stamp.
I just received my Kifer Cutlery invoice for the SFO Blue Camel bone GEC#23LL knife. I think these knives should be released on 7/17/2020. It is good to support a iKC -- GEC dealer.
Thank you for always going the extra mile and supporting iKC sponsors!
Richard, that Liner Lock looks great! The sheath idea is a good one.
Thanks Jan! The only numbers on the knife are '1 of 250' on the secondary blade, which is also stamped '2006'. This blade is also stamped, on the other side, with 'GREAT EASTERN CUTLERY' with 'TITUSVILLE' underneath.
The main blade has the above lettering on one side with 'CYCLOPS STEEL WORKS' on the other side.
