VINTAGE GERBER MARK 2 MARK II SURVIVAL KNIFE 1971 VIETNAM ERA:
VINTAGE GERBER MARK 2 MARK II SURVIVAL KNIFE 1971 VIETNAM ERA
Older Gerber Mark 2 Survival Knife 12" overall, 7" blade serial # ?? 1348, The first two characters of the serial number are unreadable. This error could be the result of a mis-strike when adding the serial number. Gerber collectors know that in the early 70s, Gerber had problems with their serial number stamping dies and had to resort to the electro-etch method to apply serial numbers to the blades. I believe the knife characteristics indicate a 1971 issue date. The knife has 14 serrations per inch with the gray "Armorhide." Handle. The knife is well preserved, used but not abused in any way, 100% stable and intact. The sheath is unusual in that someone wrapped the edges with a wire as added protection for the sheath; the original sewing is not affected and still in place. The sheath is custom made for the knife or a rare or altered original.
