Yep, that's real.
I'd like to know how a Gerber prototype made by me is up for sale under any conditions.

There is a very thin possibility this is a legal sale... thin.

Stolen? Being sold by someone in Michigan for $600.

That knife is about 1000% cooler than the production knives.

The guy looks like he sells a lot of rare knives, might be a legit dealer who got the item from someone who stole it . . .

There's a lot of weirdness in the knife industry.

If that knife were mine, it'd be in my friggin' pocket.

I am told by reliable sources that this blade soon will be in a safe place.

Whoever bought it might think a prototype doesn't belong in anyone's pocket

I think if everything is on the up and up with the sale of the knife, the only person who is really entitled to an opinion as to whether or not it's alright for that knife to be out in the wild is Bill. Since he's the one that made it.

If he were alright with the knife being out there, and I owned it, there's absolutely no question it would be in the rotation. Part of the joy of owning exceptional tools is in the use of them.

DJ,
You are absolutely right, a knife like that deserves to be seen, used and enjoyed for its intended use.....IMHO

Agreed. That's the main thing.
