Shorty Hunting knife by Gerber. No sheath included. It is an excellent hunting or skinning knife. Circa 1968 to 1976 with high speed tool steel blade. Made in USA. Knife has the gray handle which came out before the black handle. The black handles where the last ones to be made before they discontinued the series. The gray handles are not as old as the chrome handles.

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 designed.
