    Gerber Bowie Knife

    Hate to sell this..........

    Gerber Coffin Handled Bowie Knife

    Handle is Kraton (stiff rubber). Overall length is 15", blade length is 9". One small scratch on Hilt, sorry no box.

    I bought this 20 years ago and it has sat in my knife drawer ever since. It has never been used!

    $140 plus $15 for insured shipping

    Thanks!

    Does it come with the huge jellybeans?
    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    Wasn't sure why we planted tomatoes considering neither the wife nor I like them.

    It became apparent tonight when she served spaghetti with tomato sauce and green peppers from our garden, delicious!

    We couldn't get anything to grow in VA, must be the sheep poop.

    What's the steel of the blade? Carbon, or Stainless? Etc.

    Had to google it. A knife forum came up where they were debating whether it was 440A, B, or C. Then another member chimed in with 425M.

    None of these mean anything to me except that I'm going to assume these are references to carbon steel not stainless.

    My guess is, it's a fun knife to own but not something for a SHTF scenario. I'll leave it up for a few more days then put it on Ebay.

    FWIW there are 4 on Gunbroker, the highest was started at $250 and the lowest started at $165.

    I could've sworn the Gerber BMF I have is 1095 carbon....I figured (perhaps incorrectly) that this bowie would be the same.

    Sorry....not much help.

    I have that knife, had it for alot of years. Hands down the best big knife I own. It goes back-packing with me or camping. It will handle most of the chores of a small axe and carries so much better. I don't know what it is, but this knife feels great in the hand. I thought it was stainless, I don't usually buy carbon steel blades. I have my box, I will have to see if I have the literature. The product number is # 5978. Besides this is the knife I'm going use on Big Foot if I ever run into to him, that is until I find out it's Uncle Steve in a Gorilla suit!

    One thing I love about every Gerber Knife I've ever owned, is how easy it was to re-sharpen to "hair-shaving" sharp. It seems all it ever took was a couple minutes on a butchers steel and I was back in business.

    I'd love to own this, but I've got funds tied up in gun parts.

    Whoever the lucky guy is, he won't be sorry.

    I don't guess you'd be interested in a trade would you? Maybe for a Surefire X200 in great condition?

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.----John Stuart Mill
