I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this happening. I know GEC has had issues in the past with bone taking dye, but I wouldn't expect one to bleed like this. I picked up this 77 in last years run for a EDC around the office. I took it out of the leather slip it normally lives in and put it on the cloth bag for three days after freshening up the edge. When I picked it up I noticed the two red streaks where the dye has bled out. I haven't had any other knives do this and hope it not indicative of GEC.
