Is this your knife? What is the material of the handle?what is the story on this one? Glued scales?
Thanks for the reply. It was just purchased by a friend and he doesn't have it in hand yet. I've contacted Phillip and he was unsure as well. My friend who bought it will be able to tell what the material is when he has it in hand. Phillip did say that it was possible they made them in two batches and one may have been sent to Santa Fe for assembly like this, glued not pinned. Was there a marking for GW1/GW2?Is this your knife? What is the material of the handle?
There were two variants: plastic Perlex (GW1) and genuine mother of pearl (GW2). Since when attaching the MOP with rivets there is a risk of its destruction, it could have been glued. I do not pretend to be true, this is just my guess.
Great! Every detail helps round out the story on them. Also I see several different forms of the model numbers quoted but only the official source of the one listed in the two aforementioned price lists archived. And no documentation yet on date of the SFS issue. I did see a sticker in an ended auction on eBay which looked like it came from a shipping sleeve for the GW-2. But the pattern number had more letters in it.Addon: In 2004, the retail price for GW-2 was $105,95. I don't remember where I got this information from, but I'll try to find it.
