Vintage GERBER LEGENDARY BLADES Mark II fighting dagger made in in Portland, Oregon, USA. This is the post-Vietnam war limited edition run made in 1982 for The American Historical Foundation (AHF); the AHF order was limited to just 2500 daggers of each type. There were 4 commemorative Vietnam Tribute daggers – one for each service branch.  This specimen is part of the US Air Force commemorative; serial number is 200. The dagger comes with the original mahogany presentation case and matching COA.  The case is still in the original-owner The American Historical Foundation shipping box – rare this nice and complete. This commemorative dagger was sold without a scabbard.

The dagger is about 12” / 30.5 cm overall; 1960th style “wide wasp-waist” blade is about 6-7/8″ / 17.5 cm; it has not been re-sharpened, original edge is razor-sharp; the tip is intact. Ricasso is finely etched with the USAF logo on one side; the other side bares Gerber’s “sword” logo with the finely-engraved SN 0200 right under the logo. Woodland green camo pattern Armorhide finish handle is in excellent shape; the display side has a cloisonné seal for the USAF service branch. The handle is tight with no play; all original etching is near-perfect. Mirror-polished blade is excellent with no scratches or edge nicks. Rare limited addition issue of the famous Gerber Mark II fighting knife. This rare commemorative Gerber Mark 2 dagger AHF Vietnam Tribute will make an excellent addition to any collection.
