Gerber Magnum & Pixie Knives Piggy Back in Rare Left Hand Leather Sheath. Early Gerber Pixie and Magnum Hunter combo with Armorhide handles. Includes the original Gerber Piggyback leather sheath holding both knives at once. If you note, the way the knives are sheathed is unusual in that the knives are set to be drawn from the left side.This was a custom order sheath and is quite rare! The Magnum Hunter is simply stamped GERBER on the bottom, dating it to 1965 or prior. Both knives are in excellent condition and look barely used. The pixie has some very light marks on the blade tip, These are hard to see, you need to angle the blade in the right way to really see them.
The Magnum Hunter is in even better condition. Note the initials SBC lightly etched on the blades.
The blades are made from chrome plated M2 High Speed Tool Steel and have a hardness of 60-62 on the Rockwell C scale. The handles are excellent, with very minimal marks about 1-2 mm in size at the tip of the handle where it joins the blade. These are more scuffs than actual chips in the Armorhide.The brown spots on the handles are actually leather from the sheath, not anything permanent as it washes off. The red dot on the very end of the handle on the Magnum is an actual mark. I have not tried to clean it. The original leather sheath is in nice shape, with a scuff mark below the Pixie handle from when it gets pulled from the sheath, and a small scuff/nick to the leather near the stitching on the Magnum sheath (below where the Pixie is mounted, almost directly below the rivet). All stitching is tight and fully sewn in place, with no missing threads or tears. Overall condition is at least an 8.5 out of 10.
