Gerber Magnum with dark grey Armorhide metal handle and original brown leather sheath, pouch style. Near mint sharpened once, a few light scratches on blade; 2 small chips in handle finish. 11" overall, blade is 5-¾ inches. This was one of the largest hunting knives Gerber ever made. Its finger-grip shape and streamlined contour had been created during War II by industrial designer Thomas Lamb. Circa 1960's to 1970's with high speed tool steel blade. The gray handle came out before the black handle. The black handles where the last ones to be made before they discontinued the series.

The following in bold is from the Gerber paper work that came with the knives back when they came out:

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.
