Found in the gutter

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.

I have never seen one of these. I found it in the gutter outside my work today. Anybody ever see one before?

Haven't seen one but I'll be paying more atttention to the gutter from now on. Sweet find!
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Great find!

They call it the "Curve". It's a small keychain knife I know Gerber's been making as long as I've been into knives (almost 17 years now). Typically an inexpensive model, but it packs quite a few quite useful tools into that tiny frame!

As Cody stated above, it is a "Gerber Curve" key chain tool. SMKW has them in stock for $12.99 Item #G0206.
Being that it has a somewhat flimsy "Carabiner Clip" (China) and was found in the street, it most likely fell off the owners belt when entering/exiting his vehicle.
Pretty sure he misses it.
