Gerber Coffin Bowie with Cordia wood coffin handle, 15" overall, near mint with original leather sheath.  The knife has been very lightly sharpened, it does have a scratch in the wood handle near the guard on the back side as seen in the second photo below. The sheath has light carry wear and is a heavy duty quality brown leather sheath. The blade is over 1/4" thick.

The bowie was made in 1991 and is 1185 of 1500 made (1185/1500). Gerber brought out this design in 1991 and made 1500 in wood and 1500 in stag only that first year. The normal production model had a rubber like handle and was dropped from the line in 1998 or 99. The first production, of which this is one, cost more than the standard rubber handle production model but I do not have the list price for this model.

We had serial number 0000/1500 mint in the box which we sold back in 1996.

This is the knife and sheath you are buying.
