Description

GERBER model 475 Hunter-Skinner knife with exotic African Zebrawood handle, orig sheath; great overall condition. Manufactured in the US in the 1970th; hard-to-find long-discontinued model.

Vintage long-discontinued Gerber Legendary Blades model 425 Hunter-Skinner; comes with the original correct-model Gerber leather sheath. The knife was hand-finished at the Gerber factory in Portland, Oregon in the 1970th.  I have a number of vintage American-made collectible knives in the store, please take a look at the store’s American Blades section.

The knife looks unused; the edge is factory-original; the tip is intact. The blade is mirror-polished 440C stainless hardened to respectable Rc 57. Deeply sculptured finger-grooved handle is exotic South African Zebrawood with brass spacers and polished silver-nickel handguard & pommel; all parts are tight with no play. The knife is about 9-1/2″ / 24.2 cm overall; the blade is about 5″ / 12.7 cm long. Original model 425 leather sheath is included. The sheath had a small cut on one side of the belt hanger that was repaired; a few scuff marks here and there are noted for accuracy.

Very attractive and scarce Gerber “oldie” – this GERBER model 475 Hunter-Skinner knife with exotic African Zebrawood handle is getting harder and harder to find these days, especially in better grades; this knife will a great addition to any collection.
