Gerber Custom C325 ebony wood handle, high speed steel blade that is mint with light scuff marks showing in the right light on the shiny blade. The knife is 7-1/8" overall. The original leather sheath is near mint. The leather sheath that comes with this knife is the first design. They have a unique shape that holds the knife in the sheath for normal carry but if you need more protection there is still a snap strap to completely lock the knife in.

The following in bold is from the Gerber paper work that came with the knives back when they came out:
Custom designed to meet the rugged demands of today's outdoorsman, these superb cutting tools blend ultramodern, functional design, and skilled Gerber craftsmanship and manufacturing techniques. Extra-strong blades are precision ground to a razor sharp, double-wedge shape and boast a super-hardness of Rockwell C60-62. Special industrial hard-chrome plating keeps these high speed tool steel blades bright and stainless through the demanding use for which this series was designed.

There were six blade designs to choose from with this ebony wood handle. According to Levine's Guide to Knives and Their Values 4th Edition Al Mar designed these while he was at Gerber.

The forest green resin handles were made 1975 to 1976

Choose from a variety of blade designs customized for your cutting chores.

Gerber Custom C375 green resin handle, high speed steel blade that is excellent with little use. The knife is 8-1/2" overall. The blade on the C375 is wider and thicker than the C325. The leather sheath is original with more wear than the knife and is marked C375. The leather sheath that comes with this knife is the first design. They have a unique shape that holds the knife in the sheath for normal carry but if you need more protection there is still a snap strap to completely lock the knife in. These are hard to find as they where only made about one year!  Thanks Suan in Florida
