Gerber Custom C325 green resin handle, high speed steel blade
that is mint in the box. The knife is 7-7/8"
overall. The blade on the C325
is wider and thicker than the C300. The leather sheath and black box are original. 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!
The forest green resin handles were made 1975 to 1976
The following in bold is from the Gerber paper work that
came with the knives back when they came out:
Natural forest green handles are integrally molded to notched blade tangs to form a continuous, virtually indestructible unit. Handles feature space-age plastic resin construction which prove not only rigid toughness but a warm, comfortable surface for the hand. Choose from a variety of blade designs customized for your cutting chores.
There were six blade designs to choose from with this green handle. According to Levine's Guide to Knives and Their Values 4th Edition Al Mar designed these while he was at Gerber and the green nylon handles were made 1975 to 1976. This is hard to find mint in the box.
