Very Rare Gerber Knife

image

Picked up this very sweet knife today. I found very little on it so far other then the following from Cutler’s Cove:

“Gerber S59 fixed blade hunting knife mint with original brown leather sheath stamped 475 on the sheath back.  10-1/8″ overall with a 4-¾” blade, slightly upswept, with finger choil and grooved thumb rest. Exotic hardwood handle with metal guard and butt cap. If I remember correctly they had 440C stainless steel blades. This is a hard knife to find.

I believe this could be an Al Mar design and from the beginning of the Presentation Grade hunting knife series. If you hold it in your hand it looks and feels like a hand made custom knife.

The Presentation Grade hunting knife series was Gerber’s top of the line hunting knives until a few years ago. This is maybe the early 475 model. There were six models starting with the smallest model 400, 425, 450, 475, 500 and going up to the largest 525.”

The knife looks to be factory sharp and seems to have been well cared for.

 

UPDATE 06/21/2013: When in doubt, go to the source;

I wrote to Gerber about the knife and received the following reply…

Hey Leopold,

 Beautiful knife you have there. I’ve scanned and attached a page from our 1973 catalogue that you may find informative. I have also attached some information on this series of knives on the below the catalogue image.

Gerber 475s knife

Gerber Presentation Series (1971 – 1985)

The 425S is one of several from the Gerber Presentation Series.  The Gerber Presentation Series consisted of two distinct lines of knives-one with a high speed tool steel blade and Sambar Stag handle, and the other with a 440-C stainless steel blade and Macassar ebony handle (Blades and handles were not interchangeable.)

The knives using Gerber high speed tool steel in the blade feature handles of Sambar Stag, a durable, solid-core antler naturally shed by the rugged Sambar deer of India and Ceylon.

The knives with 440-C stainless blades include handles of Macaasar ebony, an extremely dense, tough hardwood with a rich, dark grain, found in the jungles of southeast Asia.  The shape of these handles is a triumph of research and art-a powergrip handle as comfortable as it is handsome, affording great control.

In all these blades and handles a special notch in the blade offers the user greater control with safety and comfort.  The guard and butt cap are investment cast stainless steel.

The series included:

Model 400S Macassar Ebony and Model 400 Stag Handle

4” Skinning Blade:  Blade thickness .156”, overall length 9”

Model 425S (Macassar Ebony and Model 425 Stag Handle

4 ¼” Hunting and Camping Blade: Blade thickness .156”, overall length 9 ¼”

Model 450S (Macassar Ebony and Model 450 Stag Handle

4 ½” Fish and Game Blade: Blade thickness .156”, overall length 9 ½”

Model 475S (Macassar Ebony and Model 475 Stag Handle

4 ¾” Big Game Blade: Blade thickness .187”, overall length 9 ¾”

Model 525S (Macassar Ebony and Model 525 Stag Handle

5 ¼” Heavy Duty Hunting Blade: Blade thickness .187”, overall length 10 ¼”
