Thanks to these two GEC knife experts, Jan Carter and Joan Mae Howard from Great Eastern Cutlery, we now have some further info about the #23 oak leaf knife posted about a few days ago:

-- In 2006 GEC did 81 knives with a Smooth White Laser Handle. Back then the serial number would run straight through the pattern. In other words, mine is the 176th #23 to come through.

-- It was not an SFO knife.

--The oak pattern on the handle was done with a laser, and it was the first laser handled knife GEC produced.

Kenneth,

I cant wait to see that Blue with the Kifer shield!!!

Fred,

If they say something other than what is on the website I would be surprised but you never know.  They are good with communicating

Thanks Jan for the info. I finally emailed GEC, which is what I should have done in the first place. They answered back! I sent them some photos they requested, so we may have some further info soon.

More Blue Camel Bone Kifer SFO GEC#23LL Knife photos are on the Great Eastern Cutlery web-sight.  The Kifer shield really looks awesome on the un-buffed blue knives.  I hope mine is a stone washed blue .

In the early years the 250 would usually mean they made 250 but not all with the same handle material

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!
