Gerber Survival Knife vintage ad

Caught this one in a 1981 issue of the “American Handgunner”. The small Guardian must have been new by then and apparently they made reference to the many copies of the Mk II and Command Models. The latter are not fully double edged and were meant to give more utility to the design. A futile attempt imho without making changes to the grip section, so maybe the markets outlawing double-edged knives were the reason for these “semi-daggers”.
