Gerber Legendary Blades from the 70s-80s made some of the best knives on the market, with the likes of Pete Kershaw, Al Mar and Blackie Collins cutting their teeth so to speak on Gerbers dime, you had some of the great designers of our age who came outta the factory. That was my favorite time period for them, the Silver Knights, the Paul knives, the LST and Bolt lock were revolutionary and set the upcoming trends for the next 20 years.
One of the last blades they made under the Gerber Legendary Blades monijer was the SL3.25 series of knives, G10, Carbon Fiber and other premium scale materials with ATS34 blade steel, Titanium Liner/Walker Lock, it was a greatly underrated knife that was discontinued before it got recognized.
