Gerber vintage stockman information

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.

Gerber vintage stockman information

Post by hard.times.lures » Fri Jun 21, 2019 3:08 pm

I wish to know who made the vintage Gerber stockman knives? I am talking about the lightweight Zytel models.
I don't know if Gerber itself made them or farmed it out to Camillus, Schrade, etc.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bryan
