    Knife for trade: Gerber Gator Blade, Combo Edge, First Production Run, ATS-34 steel. Pics and more details below.

    Trades: I have no interest in traditionals. Users are fine. No lock backs. Just want to change it up. Happy to add cash on this end to trade up.

    Knife is a lightly used, Gerber Gator Blade. I am the original owner and have had this knife since sometime in the mid 90s. Post Fiskars acquisition of Gerber but before things went to hell in a hand-basket. It is labeled “First Production Run” but it has to be a later variant of the original Gator since it looks different from what my weak google-fu returns. Comes with original sheath/pouch with nylon belt loop. There is some light spotting (which should be visible in pics) but cannot feel it. Centering favors presentation side but does not rub. Overall condition is quite good and it locks up solid as a rock. Couple gouges on the rubber scales from light use and carrying. See the centering pic for the worst of it, although I had to use the flash to get them to show. It looks better in person. Fairly big blade (3.5 in cutting, 3.75 overall blade length?) Has been touched up on Sharpmaker (once) but never re-profiled and serrations are in great shape.
