GERBER EXCALIBUR CARVING SET

Every guy needs a good carving set for those special times when your ordinary kitchen knife just won't do.
I picked up a set a few years ago for just such occasions.

This is from one of my favorite knife makers, Gerber. It's their "Excalibur" line.

It's probably from the 80's. But very nice. Solid walnut case, solid steel knife, fork and steel.

It really goes through a turkey like nobody's business. I only use it a few times a year but it's really nice to have the right tool for the job.

Plus it looks great just waiting till the next time. A nice carving set is gear that a vintage gear guy needs.
