Vintage LST had 440C or 440A??

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.

Vintage LST had 440C or 440A??

In the Gerber History post by Overt, I was disappointed to read that Pete Gerber said the vintage LST had 440A steel. That steel is inferior to 440C in edge holding. I always thought the original LST knives featured 440C blades. Does anyone have any information on this?

Thanks kindly, Bryan

Mr. Orvet please forgive me for misspelling your name. Bryan
