American Bald Eagle Foundation Knives
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.
