    Original Gerber 1967

    Another one from Frenchy, and he stated this one was carried a lot on missions. The condition of this one is simply outstanding, and I was very surprised to find the slight 5 - 7% bend in the blade. I was told these original Gerber knives were made this way to conform better to the hip when carried. This is a nice one, so once again my thanks to Frenchy for letting all of us take a look.

    I had a MKII once upon a time. I gave it to my brother when he joined the Army, and yes he carried it and used it regularly. As an EDC knife though. He saw some combat, but as a Bradley mechanic he didn't see any up close and personal stuff, so it never got used to dispatch any of those assholes over there.

    It had the serrations where the wasp style waist is on yours, black handle, and sheath was identical to yours but black, without the bend in the blade.

    Almost wish I'd kept it, but it was a good gift to a good man doing a good thing.

    Edit to add: lol, by the way, congrats! This is a great find!
    I'm in the process of building a new forge, and solid metal knives like this will be on the projects list.

    Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla! Where the brave may live forever.

    Do not ever believe because I am peaceful, that I've forgotten how to be violent.
