Update, I just grabbed an wooden handled EE('99) date code Silver(FREE). She only has one handle. Goes with the year 2000 theory. So if I'm understanding correctly, there's really no "set in stone" reason as to why they did that. To really change things up, she has daisy-wheel vents, not the One-Touch system. What's up with that? My H date code('86) has the One-Touch. I love 'em, but I think I'm more confused now.
