In 1985 the American Historical Foundation bought Ek knives and acquired everything that went with it, including the Ek Commando Knife records. This information is directly from Gary Ek and when contacted recently about a Miami Ek Commando knife signed by him. Gary graciously confirmed that he made this knife in 1974 while working for his father. He explained that the earliest markings were rubber stamped with ink. These early Miami knives often appear unmarked, but what happened is that the ink was easily erased. Next they tried acid ink and finally they went back to engraving using a New Hermes Engraver. Outstanding condition Miami Ek in a presentation case numbered 06 out of the 50 they had. $425.00
