Gerber Guardian, mint in the box, serial no. 011784; a companion model to the Mark I. It is 7" overall with a 3-1/4" blade. This is the original model of the Gerber Guardian, which came out over 20 years ago and not a current model. Marked on the blade Designed by R.W. Loveless. The handle is black Armorhide metal. Includes the original black leather sheath with  boot/belt clip. I think this is from the early 1980's. Knife comes in it’s original orange and white box which is shop worn. Later units had a black Cordura sheath in place of the leather sheath that this one comes with. Gerber did not make this knife for a long period like the Mark II and a lot less were made.

Loveless is arguably the most influential custom knife maker of the 20th Century. Bob Loveless began a series of collaborations with leading knife companies in the 1980s to produce knife designs to exacting standards that would make them available to a larger market at affordable prices. If I remember correctly only the first units where marked with the Loveless mark and the later ones did not have this mark.

We had all three of the Guardians to choose from.
