GB01972: Mark II 70th Anniversary Edition
Gerber

2009 Limited Edition - Gerber Legendary Blades proudly presents the Gerber 70th Anniversary Edition of the Mark II survival knife.

The Gerber 70th Anniversary production run is limited to 1,500 pieces of the Mark II. Each knife is laser-etched with its unique serial number and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Pete Gerber. In the words of Pete, "When I make a survival knife, I never forget your life could depend on it."

Military Influence

In 1967, Gerber decided to market a combat knife to support the military in Vietnam. Based on the sketch from Captain C.A. "Bud" Holzmann, the concept became the Mark II survival knife. The shape and double-edged construction borrowed from the Skyes-Fairbain fighting knife popular with the elite armed forces of World War II. Gerber's Mark II added a distinct pommel and indestructible textured handle. The result quickly became popular with Army Special Forces, Marine Recon, Navy SEALS and Army Rangers.

Materials

The Gerber 70th Anniversary Mark II knife features the classic construction that made the knife famous with a few updates. The distinct wasp shape returns and the material is state of the art, corrosion resistant S30V stainless steel, which we consider to be the finest available. The aluminum handle is die cast and cemented to the handle with an advanced epoxy that ensures an unbreakable bond between the blade and the handle.
