Show off your Gerber Knives

In 1939 Joseph Gerber (advertising agency owner) had custom knife maker David Murphy make 24 sets of carving knife for some of his select customers. Catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch saw them and was so impressed with the quality of the knives they wanted to sell them. Thus was born Gerber Legendary Blades.

Here are four recent adds. Are all very good or better. The assisted open Fairbairn Applegate fires as fast as an Automatic and even has a nice lock. The one made in Taiwan is actually a nice looking knife. They are all to new for me so they will be in my store as a lot sale.

Hi, All:
Well, I think I've covered all of my options on finding a Sheath for my Gerber Clip Lock, Boot knife. To top it all off, my computer has locked out the use of Google, to search with. I am going to try to impose on a member, to send me the pictures of the back of their Blackie Collins designed Gerber, Clip Lock, Boot Knife, as I'll just have to build a sheath. Check Six on this forum has one, maybe I can get him, or some other considerate member, to send, me pictures of the back of their's? Thanks.

Here is a 450 and Sheath I have had for years. I thought a blade such as this needed a better background than my old chamois so Here it is laying on a Zebra leather taken in the late 1890's .

I few of my Gerber Silver knights, the large one (3 3/4 closed) has been posted before I replaced the handle with inner mammoth Ivory. The small one (3 1/4 closed) is a WIP using Mammoth Tooth. I still have a lot of fine sanding to do. truthfully I'm not as happy with the work I did on this one but then again it was my first time working with Mammoth Tooth.

Hi, All:
I am a fairly new member to the AAPK knife forum, and joined, thinking that I would get some badly needed information, about a neat little boot knife, that I bought without doing my homework. I bought it without the sheath, which is an intricate part of the system. Well after trying every source I could find, to buy one I decided to design and build one. I started this project in early July, and just finished today. I made the front , and back panels of lightweight tempered aluminum, the center spacer of Lucite, and the nylon adjustable boot clip from a cellphone holster. I was trying for lightweight, and strength. My arthritis, failing eyesight, memory loss, loss of strength, and old age, at 86 yrs. all contributed to the length of time that I spent making this sheath. But, as they say, "Here she is". Thanks for sharing, a subject that will only interest a very few.

Wow, excellent work, ST! I recall when you first got the knife without realizing the sheath was so integral.

Well done! ::tu::
