Gerber Stag Bowie with genuine whole horn handle, 14-3/4" overall, mint without original leather sheath. The knife is quite striking and the handle is really a fine piece of stag that uses the whole round horn and not just slabs to make the handle. The handle is Sambar stag at 5" long and 1-5/8" in diameter and is a hand full. The blade is over 1/4" thick. The thick brass guard has an interesting age patina that you can polish away if you want as the brass is in great condition without any pitting. Made in USA.

Made 25 years ago!

The bowie was made in 1991 and is 480 of 1500 made (0480/1500). 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.

Blade is more than 1/4" thick!

We have had several of this knife in different handles over the years since 1991 and all of them have been very well done. Gerber did a great job with this knife in multiple ways including design, materials, production and fit. Remember there was only 1500 made as part of the first and original production run and this is one.

Gerber bought this knife out again later in about 1996 with everything being the same except the second run was not serial numbered. The second run is generally worth less than the first edition in 1991.

This is the knife without sheath you are buying.


Close up of the serial number 0480 / 1500.
