Gerber Magnum Folding Hunter knife with Zebrawood handle scales, original leather sheath. Vintage 1970th issue in rare unused condition with orig retail box, papers – scarce this nice and complete.

Scarce long-discontinued vintage Magnum Folding Hunter lockback folder with exotic West African zebrawood handle scales; still in the original retail box with sheath and papers. Manufactured from 1975 to 1987 by Gerber Legendary Blades in Portland, Oregon, USA; a desirable 1970th 1st production run (no dots in the frame’s interior). Original purchase price for Magnum in the early 1970th for $43.30 – a lot of money back than! Magnum was the largest folder Gerber ever made and arguably the best one in terms of size, balance and quality.

This beauty is about 7-7/8″ / 19.8 cm opened; satin-polished blade is about 3-1/4” / 8.3 cm. The blade is 440C surgical stainless, hardened to 57-59RC on the Rockwell scale and hand-honed at the Gerber factory for a superior edge. The blade is very sharp; the tip is intact. The frame and the pivot pin are made of solid brass; handle scales are exotic zebrawood. Brass frame has a few minor tarnish spots from storage. Original leather sheath is unused as well. Scarce knife in general and VERY rare in unused condition with original packaging and papers included. This early Gerber Magnum Folding Hunter knife set will be a welcome edition to any collection.
