THE VIETNAM TRIBUTE COLLECTION issued by The American Historical Foundation. Great condition with minor scratches on the box. If you have questions please ask. Below is information about the whole collection. The American Historical Foundation issued a series of four commemorative combat knives called the Vietnam Tribute Collection. The knives were manufactured by Gerber Legendary Blades of Portland, Oregon. The type of knife used for this collection was the Gerber Mark II. Each knife handle has its own camouflage scheme relative to that specific branch of the United States Armed Forces. The only exception to this is the United States Navy Knife which has the solid colors of green and gray with a gold rope wrapping around the handle seperating those colors. On the handle of each knife is the seal for that specific branch of the United States Armed Forces. Each knife is unique, and the blades are made of stainless steel. Each knife blade is individually hand ground, so there are slight differences in the blade lengths. The display side of the blade has an insignia or patch relative to that specific branch of the United States Armed Forces. The rest of the display side of the blade has a stunning engraved combat scene with banners on each side. For example, The Marine Knife says “In Honor of the United States Marines” to the left of the engraved combat scene and “Vietnam 1961-73″ to the right. The back of each blade has the Gerber Legendary Blades logo, below the logo is the word GERBER in capital letters. Below GERBER, in smaller capital letters it says PORTLAND, ORE. And below that is the serial number. Each Knife has its own case made of Mahogany. Inside of the Wooden Knife Case is its own Embedded Certificate of Authenticity that tells you the specific branch of the United States Armed Forces for the Knife, and Serial Number.
