Overview

The Gerber Folding Sportsman III is constructed from a diecast brass frame. It measures 9 ¼” long when opened. The knife is 5” long when closed and weighs 9 ½ ounces. The blade is made of 440c stainless steel hardened to Rockwell 57-59C. The rivets are machined out of brass. The inlays are made of ivory micarta, a very durable yet beautiful knife material. It ages similar to ivory, yet doesn’t crack as ivory sometimes does. The precision-fit inlays are held in place by a loctite product, eliminating unsightly rivets. The Bald Eagle Scene scrimshaw was done by a world renowned western/wildlife artist Jim Blair. His primary project was fossil ivory before joining Gerber Legendary knives.

The blade of the knife is engraved with

“1792-American Bald Eagle Bicentennial Commemorative-1982”

Limited edition Collectible Knives only available through the American Bald Eagle Foundation.  Each knife is numbered on the ivory micarta handle.


This lockback folder features a polished blade with nail nick. The handle has integral brass bolsters and liners, ivory micarta scales, and stainless steel backspacer. Comes with a wooden display box. Great condition. The blade is etched "1782 - American Bald Eagle Bicentennial Commemorative - 1982".

This knife is from the first run. Numbers 1-200. This knife is #77. Blade Steel: Mirror Polished Stainless Steel
