Pictured is a rare and seldom seen Gerber Folding Sportsman III featuring scales made of 100% Oregon Agate Stone. These knifes were made from 1976 – 1979 as a special collector’s series and were made with Oregon Agate or Jade. This knife has never been used and only shows slight scuffing where the blade folds closed. This was probably done during shipping to ensure no damage to the knife. Knife is packed in proper Gerber walnut display case with proper liner. This entire piece has been pre-owned and due to this we grade it as being in Near Mint condition. The display box has had a brass plate adhered to the top of the lid. This is the type of plate that featured a sticky back so it could be removed without harm to the box, otherwise except for a few scuff marks on the box from storage, this is an outstanding set with gorgeous Oregon Agate scales. Serial number on the knife is 2985 and I believe Gerber Made less that 500 of these – quite a piece of art and a true collector’s item.
