Product Description

We just acquired this Gerber Shorty with an Armorhide Handle. These were made by Gerber from 1968-1976 and then re-introduced in 1981-1989.  This I believe is an earlier knife as the sheath has a rich rust/brown color; the later ones featured a dark brown sheath.  This Shorty is properly marked on the underside of the knife – Gerber Shorty.  The knife is in MINT unused condition, never sharpened or used. The Armorhide finish and blade is 100%.  The sheath is proper to the knife with the stitching tight and all in tact. The part of the sheath that touches the knife handle shows some darkening due to the leather contact with the rough Armorhide handle. A great example of an Early Gerber Shorty, made in the USA when Pete Gerber was in charge of the company. The Older Gerber Knives made by Pete and his staff are some of the finest knives made period.
