Just a quick reminder that the Wounded Warrior Auction ends tomorrow (Saturday, August 23) at 7:00PM CST. The current bid stands at $210 which is a bargain price for a great looking knife and truly a rare one at that!
To place a bid, go to: Wounded Warrior Auction and leave a reply with your bid amount. This is a fantastic organization that does a great job helping our returning Wounded Warriors transition to a normal life just a little easier.
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!
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.
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.
