Gerber Guardian II, Ex+, light wear on the handle from being in sheath, serial no. A8366S. It has not been sharpened. It is 11-7/8" overall with a 6-3/4" blade. Marked on the blade Designed by R.W. Loveless. The handle is black Armorhide metal. Includes the original black leather sheath with (old style) military utility belt clip. I think this is from the early 1980's. 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. This series of knives was designed and started production before the company was acquired by Fiskars in 1986.

We had all three of the Guardians to choose from.
