Wounded Warrior Project Auction Starts HERE ~ TODAY!

A week ago I was lucky enough to have won the GEC Rendezvous Raffle knife for the Wounded Warrior Project.  This year I haven’t been running any Auctions for the Wounded Warrior Project but instead have been donating a percentage of sales.  When I won this knife, it just seemed appropriate to pay it forward and auction it off with all of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project!  It’s a fantastic looking knife and truly  one of a kind!

721114LB Hand Carved Camel Bone #02 DSCN0456 DSCN0458

As the label states, the handle material is hand carved Camel Bone and even though it’s serial #02, this is the only one that was built.  GREAT looking knife and an even greater collectible!

The auction starts immediately and will end Saturday, August 23 at 7:00PM CST.

To place a bid, simply post a reply to this post with your bid.  A couple of suggestions from previous experience:

  • Don’t wait until the last minute to bid.
  • If you haven’t already registered to post on the TSA Blog, you’re bid may not show up immediately as I have to approve new contributors.
  • In the event of a tie bid, the bid with the earlier time stamp will prevail

That’s it!  Nothing to it.  100% of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

One of a kind Hand Carved Camel Bone GEC 72

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!

721114LB Hand Carved Camel Bone #02

The blade is etched Factory Test.



DSCN0458As 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.
