gerber presentation fixed blade

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.

Assuming it is a Presentation hunting knife, they were made from 1971 through the eighties. The first year they were made with a pointed handle, but were soon changed to a flat pommel. Most were made with wood finger groove or brown "Cushion Grip" (Dupont Hypalon) handles, but a few had stag. They were made with 4, 4.25, 4.5, 4.75 and 5.25 inch stainless or "Hi-speed" steel blades. and a couple of variations of sheath styles. Several special issues were made including for Case equipment (NOT Case knife) and Harley Davidson. Although the design is sort of dated now, they are excellent field knives.
