Just received in the shop is a Vintage Gerber 5″ Knife Sharpening Steel in original box with brochure. This steel was most likely produced back in the late 1960’s based on the large Gerber stamped letters on the steel and the mosaic green and white box. Steel appears to have never been used and from the condition of the sheath it appears to have seen little to no use or carry. Box is in very good to excellent condition with the end label still in tact along with the original price sticker. Most of the Gerber 5″ Steels were well used or ” hammered” on to split small pieces of wood or just to see how much abuse it could take. This one is clean and as said does not appear to have seen any service. These were the same steels that we an accessory for the Gerber Mark II, Command and Guardian Series of knives.
