Gerber Mark 2 knife, Mark II Canted blade cats-tongue handle. Great condition, blade is excellent, small marks on handle, and sheath is worn but in great shape.  This is a more unique Mark II it's serial number is CS0082, which is from a run done in the 80s limited to approximately 200, however this one also has the 5 degree cant in the blade which wasn't a normal production for that run. Includes brown leather stock sheath by Gerber.  This is in great shape and something that any collector will welcome to their knife showcase. 


Throughout the years of its production, from 1967 to 1998, the Gerber Mark II went through many alterations. Changes in blade steel, blade profile, blade serration, handle material, handle coating material and handle coating color resulted in a large number of knife variations.


The Mark II was manufactured continuously from 1967 through 1998. From 1999 to 2007 no Mark II knives were produced.


In 2008 the Mark II, with some design changes, was re-introduced and has since had some minor changes in markings and packaging.

Cat's Tongue" (Gerber called it "Steel Grip") handled knives gained their name from the rough sandpaper-like surface of the handles. The surface was created by spraying molten stainless steel on the aluminum handle's surface. The molten steel droplets momentarily melted the aluminum and were imbedded in the handle. The aluminum quickly solidified, fusing the droplets on the handle surface. The guard and pommel are coated with black, non-reflective, Duracron paint. These handles provide a very secure grip even with hands that are wet or slippery.


The Cat's Tongue handles are found on the early 1967-1968 knives as well as the 20th., 35th. and 70th. Gerber Anniversary knives and knives made exclusively for the Cutlery Shoppe and for A.G. Russell.


And there are occasional other Cat's Tongue Handle knives on much later knives, but they are rare. For example I have noted Cat's Tongue Handles on S/N's 010078, 019785, E0077S, E5601S E5671S and L8990S.


All of these knives have 6-5/8 to 7-inch long blades with an overall length of 11-5/8 to 12 inches. The total knife weight is approximately 7.3 ounces. All blades are of a flattened diamond shape cross section and have various profiles which are individually described.
