I received the GEC 72 Lockback finished with Hand Carved Camel Bone I won in the Great Eastern raffle for the Wounded Warrior Project. GREAT looking knife!
The blade is etched Factory Test.
As the label indicates, this is Serial #2 of 1. Maybe a little explanation is in order??? When GEC makes a run of serialized knives, they retain serial #01, so the first knife released to distributors in a series will be #02. On the occasion they run a special one of a kind like this, they typically skip #01 and start the numbering with #02.
Next week I’ll get an auction set up on the blog and we’ll see if we can raise a few more dollars for the Wounded Warriors by auctioning off this piece. It’s really nice looking handle material on one of GEC’s most popular patterns.
