The latest release of the 97 Autumn Gold came in this afternoon. Another really nice looking knife. Each of the knives will include the cap pin pictured.
The blade etch on the Autumn Gold makes it unique from the Beavertail and the Micarta. “Allegheny Belle Riviere” Unfortunately, GEC is a bit short of explanation sometimes regarding names. But I found this tidbit that I’m going to make an assumption is explanation.
“Named “La Belle Riviere” by French explorers, these 87 miles of the Allegheny flows through areas of narrow forest valleys, wilderness islands and broad, rural landscapes rich with the early history and culture of the region. Pastoral farmlands, small towns and the narrow winding valleys provide a diversity of views for those travelling the river. Good public access and few hazards make this an ideal river for novice and family canoeing. Fishing for muskie, walleye, rainbow trout and smallmouth bass is popular.
The Allegheny River Basin occupies 11,747 square miles in the states of New York and Pennsylvania. The Allegheny River is over 315 miles long and contributes 60 percent of the Ohio River flow at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the location of the most populous freshwater mussel habitat in the world, and one tributary, French Creek, is one of the most biologically diverse watersheds in Pennsylvania.” Courtesy of the USFWS
