Choice-selected exotic Indian stag handles are in excellent shape condition. Solid brass handguards and pommels are beautifully engraved by master engraver J. West (the name can be found on Mark II pommel). Mark II dagger is about 12-1/8″ / 31 cm; the blade is about 6-5/8” / 17 cm. Mark I is about 9-1/8″ / 23.2 cm; the blade is about 4-7/8” / 12.5 cm. The blades are mirror-polished 440C stainless hardened to a respectable 57-59 Rc on the Rockwell scale; each blade is engraved with matching serial number on ricasso. Both daggers are unused with original factory edge; the tips are intact. Gerber’s COA is included (signed by Paul Gerber himself) and is marked with the matching serial number.

Original Walnut Presentation box with black felt lining is in near mint condition. “Silver” Gerber Legendary Blades ribbon is on the case’s lid interior. Box is marked Gerber on the bottom; these sets were issued without sheaths.
