The Gerber Mark II has the honor of being one of the best-selling knives of all time, thanks to its place in the hallowed halls of military weapons.

Designed by US Army Captain Bud Holzman, the Mark II was inspired by the Roman Mainz Gladius sword and the Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife. It has a slender design with a 6.5-inch double-edged spear point design.

The blade is made from 420HC stainless steel and finished with black oxide coating that increases corrosion resistance and reduces the steel's reflective properties. The serrations on either side of the blade are a fairly recent addition by the legendary Al Mar to add extra functionality.

Its die cast aluminum handle is not only durable but comfortable in the hand. Subtle curves fill out the palm while a guard keeps the hand from slipping onto the blade when thrusting.

Although originally billed as a fighting knife for close-quarters combat, the Mark II has since become a popular knife for survival applications. Coming in at 12.75 inches, the Mark II has helped countless soldiers make it through the most dire situations.

The Mark II comes with a ballistic nylon sheath with a velcro and snap fastener for extra stability.

Proudly made in the United States, the Gerber Mark II is the perfect knife to memorialize those who have fallen in battle.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.

From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.

Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.

"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
