In my top kitchen drawer of knives resides, in a nice walnut box, the Gerber carving knife that we bought so very long ago as a gift for my Dad.
It has Gerber-12 on one side of the handle and "snickersnee" on the other side. Has a kind of two prong fork at the tip too.
Funny thing is that it's still LNIB after 50+ years as Dad preferred using his older carbon steel knives. It came to me after mom passed about 15 years ago.
I guess it is the "safe queen" equivalent of my kitchen utensils...;)

Like that, but in the wooden presentation box?

Yes, that's the one but with the name and model number stamped on the handle. The handle shape on mine is different though.
And yes, it has the nice walnut presentation box too.
Thanks for posting that picture hso..

I think I've got about the whole set, except for the smaller Little Snick. I've got the Balmung, the Snickersnee, and the Durendal carving knives in boxed sets, with the Siegfried and the Ron carving forks, and the Gerber Miming Steak Knives. Very fine steel, which really holds an edge, but which takes a lot of work to resharpen.
