Well here is a newer Gerber Product that we decided to add to our site of high quality knives. One of the few New Gerber Products that are made in the USA. – The Gerber CFB – Combat Fixed Blade Knife – P/N 22-01145DSN. 1095014668569. Commonly referred to as the Yari II. This knife Is In MINT Condition / NEW !! – Here is what Gerber says about this knife:
The CFB was created when the US Army asked for a lightweight, sturdy, low-profile knife with great grip. Gerber answered the call with the CFB Compact Fixed Blade knife. Its full tang fortifies its strength, while its 154CM steel construction keeps the blade edge at hair-splitting sharpness for far longer than the average knife. The CFB, like all of our military products, is built in Portland, Oregon.
- Blade Length: 4.25”
- Blade Thickness: .12”
- Overall Length: 9.25”
- Weight w/o Sheath: 4.9 oz.
- Weight w/ Sheath: 9.6 oz.
- Handle: Rubberized Grip
- Sheath: Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon
- Encased in a molded plastic friction lock sheath, with removable MOLLE compatible webbing, the CFB can go even lower-profile when tethered to the operator’s kit or person. Paracord attached to the base of the nylon sheath provides for optional leg tie-down.
Great knives, made in the USA, as we have experienced ourselves, better get one before they are discontinued or outsourced overseas! We have seen it happen before. NOTE: This knife replaced the older version called Yari which was similar in design, except for the sheath which had limited application. Note the labeling on the box, looks like Govt. Issue
