    I don't know, but I am sure that it would depend on the model and the condition - and for a niche collectible like that, finding the right buyer.

    Also, please post pictures. :D

    The model should be the Guardian, ide say somewhere around 50 bucks. Some early Gerbers like that are worth more, but they need to be in mint condition. I kinda collect double edged Gerbers, so if you feel like getting rid of it, let me know and ill see if we can make a deal.

    I have a question. Is it legal to carry a knife like this? I inherited one from my father. He recieved it as a safety award from Wah-Chang when he worked for them,( as ironic as that is, here you have been safe, have a double edge knife) Well anyway, that is my question.

    We get knives as construction awards, as far as legality, I know this knife is not legal in Seattle and Tacoma, no fixed blades, but other than that not sure but would assume illegal.

    Ok i think i have my answer. I read all the helpful info two posts down from this one. Thanks for all the info. Still might bend the rules. I like to carry this knife. But like most people on here i am sure, the knife i carry is the least of their worries.

    Given the double edge, I don't think it would be. Portland laws are pretty specific against dagger type weapons I think.
