I recently picked up one of these with 055L stamped on the bolster. This is definitely an L on the end so it appears there there was an unknown quantity produced like this. I have been searching the web for any information on this and found this thread, does anyone know anything about this stamp variation?Thanks for your response. To me the last number really looks like an L maybe the bolster got scratched and made the 1 look like an L not sure.
...Do you think the numbering on the member knives were part of the 10,000 knives produced for this series?
...My speculation would be that they were.
