REDISCOVERED GECs

Postby Quick Steel » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:52 pm

I have been working thru my knife accumulation and have been discovering a few knives I had forgotten about. Here are two GEC E/Os. If I ever showed photos of them it must have been years ago; they are not in my current photo collection. The upper Cap Lifter has covers of OD Green Micarta. The lower knife has Gabon Ebony. Any of you know when these knives were released? It would help jog my memory.

Garry, the last two numbers of the pattern number on the cap lifter are the year they were released. Same with all GECs.
