    I wish I could have gotten an elk version, and a chestnut for that matter. GEC does stag like no other. This has become one of my favorites as well and I'm pretty happy to be able to carry it during the summer :thumbsup:

    Sorry that was your Christmas surprise. I would think that GEC would be able to help.

    So I have been carrying my 99 in American Elk for less than a couple of weeks now. I keep it in a GEC pocket slip in my pants pocket. I took it out this morning and I noticed what looks like a small pepper spot on the top swedge. I have seen that before on an SFO 92 and it surprised me at the time. My first lesson in the care of a non stainless steel knife. I am now more careful to wipe down my blades after use and to treat all my non stainless knives with some mineral oil when stored.

    Now the 99 is supposed to be stainless so I have just been carrying it as is. Does it make sense that I would get a pepper spot so easily? Is it something else?

    Still love the knife but surprised at the "spot". I have had Case or Victorinox in my pockets for years without any rust issues. This is not 1095.

    Maybe the belt used to polish or grind it had been used on carbon steel first and some got embedded in your stainless blade?
