I would like to know the answer on this question as well, if possible. Were there any WTC knives left over that had to be destroyed? I was told when I ordered my knife at 4:30 P.M., CST on 8/31/05, I was told that I got the last one, #1515, but I don't believe they weren't issued sequentially. So, it would be very interesting to hear what actually ended up happening from someone.
As a side note, Jim's post made me think a bit about the knife and it's relativity to the attack, and how each knife is representative of a life lost. I often wonder who would be the person represented by my knife's number, and how that person's family is faring since the incident. Well, allow me to say that I wish the best for their soul and their family, as well as every other victim of that fateful event, and I hope that they are all at peace. I also wonder how much money was raised from the knives' sale and hope that it all was a successful endeavor on all counts.
Thanks for listening, I felt I had to say something.
