Owning the Legend links you directly to Gerber’s seventy-five years of knife-making heritage. Designed and built by hand in Portland, Oregon, sheathed in premium American leather that was tanned, formed and sewn by local craftsmen, and field tested with experts like you. This knife is the result of a wealth of development and refinement. It is the ultimate Gerber hunting knife.

Initial construction takes six hours for a single blade. Each blade is closely inspected afterward, then flat ground, beveled, hand sanded, and Tycro wheeled to remove machine marks and grinding lines. It’s stamped “Made in USA Portland OR” alongside the Gerber logo and given a unique serialization number. Following another inspection, the knife is heat treated, and the blade is polished by hand to a mirror-finish. The Oregon Spalted Maple and G-10 scales, which take 8 hours to process, are then attached. Next, the blade is sharpened meticulously by hand and the knife is given a final inspection, then cleaned and oiled to preserve both the edge of the blade and its handle. Finally, the Legend is placed in its custom box alongside a handmade Tanner Goods leather sheath.

The blade is made of CPM S35VN steel, which is designed for enhanced toughness while providing wear resistance and improved edge retention over conventional high chromium steels. It is supplied by Crucible Industries in Syracuse, NY, makers of specialty steel in Syracuse continuously since 1876. Each piece of Oregon Spalted Maple used in the handle was hand-picked for its uniquely stunning appearance and inlaid into the G-10 composite. G-10, used for its durable and non-conductive properties, is extremely rugged, lightweight, and strong. The G-10 and Oregon Spalted Maple are selected and rough-cut separately, then joined with precise tolerances to ensure moisture, dirt, and humidity will not penetrate the substrate.

To create a custom leather sheath worthy of the Legend, the Gerber design team partnered with the local leather craftsmen at Portland-based Tanner Goods. The team carefully selected each hide individually based on exacting standards and spent more than twenty hours crafting each individual sheath by hand. In addition to the fine leather work involved, each sheath has a protective sleeve that cradles the knife precisely to prevent mildew and guard the edge from damage during a lifetime of use.

its looks like an amazing knife but the fact that its 700$ will probably deter 90% of all possible buyers.
