Why the focus on traditional knives? GEC was founded in 2006, at a time when many US-based knife companies were shifting to overseas manufacturing to save their struggling businesses. GEC emerged as a way to remind people what was special about American-made knives in the first place. And it all comes down to high-quality craftsmanship and tradition.
If a revived iconic knife design from 75 years ago sounds like an absolute must-have for your pocket or collection, browse GEC knives today. You won’t be disappointed.
GEC knives are handcrafted with some machine assistance in Titusville, Pennsylvania. In the spirit of reviving tradition, most GEC blades are forged with carbon steel rather than stainless steel. Although it requires a little more care than stainless steel, carbon steel has an impressive reputation for holding its edge and attaining a stunning polish.
