Need Help Identifying These

In 1939 Joseph Gerber (advertising agency owner) had custom knife maker David Murphy make 24 sets of carving knife for some of his select customers. Catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch saw them and was so impressed with the quality of the knives they wanted to sell them. Thus was born Gerber Legendary Blades.

Need Help Identifying These

Post by TnMtnMn » Sat Jun 05, 2021 4:22 pm

The past two days I have been going insane trying to find what family of Gerber’s these belong too. I’ve searched and searched and found NOTHING, not even a close match to these blades. Can anyone help me ? Thanks in advance if anyone knows

Hi there, I also have one of those knives, the slightly wider one with the offset pocketclip and the oddly shaped lanyard hole. Got it used in a lot from eBay. There is no model number on it that I can see, and I don't even see a country of manufacture stamp, which seems odd for a modern product. The fit, finish and lock up on the knife is impressive. Overall, it has a very quality look and feel to it, with the exception of the belt clip. Its too thin and interferes with the way I open it. The nice thing is that the knife will come apart easily allowing me to modify it if need be for a different clip. However, the knife overall would look better with no clip - but it would be a bit heavy to carry around in a pocket that way.

Do post back if you find anything else out! I am wondering why these two are packaged this way or if that is the only way they were sold. The box set and the instructions about the finish styles makes me think they might have been some kind of holiday endcap "last minute" gift idea in a sporting goods or hardware retailer. Is there any paperwork in the box or with the box?

Have you tried asking Gerber? They’re a U.S. company still in business. Www.gerbergear.com. Scroll down to the bottom and click on Customer Service. There is an email address for inquiries. ::tu::

Dodger I’m still trying to identify these. There was no paperwork whatsoever with my set.
As for contacting Gerber I did. And I never got a response from them. I guess I’ll try again and see what happens. I’ll let you all know when and if I hear or learn something.
