Originally released in 1967, Gerber’s U.S. Army Captain Bud Holzman-designed Mark II fighting knife was a legendary blade carried by American troops during the Vietnam War – second only to the one made by Ka-Bar. Now, the brand is paying homage to that knife with the release of the G1-002, a super high-end hardcore fixed blade.
Created in collaboration with Zev Technologies and Blackpoint Tactical, this knife is made of some of the most premium materials available. That includes a 6.5″ spear point S60V steel blade and custom machined Cerakote coated handle. It also comes with a specially made Kydex sheath, and each is built by hand over the course of dozens of hours right here in the USA. Only 100 have been made, so if you want one, you’d better act quickly. The price is set at $400 each.
