Vintage Rare One-of-a-Kind Gerber Folder Needs I.D. Please!

Hello everyone, new forum member here.  I need some help in identifying this Gerber folding knife.  It is the size of their old early 70s Folding Hunter, but much slimmer and with an aluminum handle and inlaid hardwood scales.

My apologies for the lack of picture quality, but I took these many years ago with a camera that wasn't the best. However, I can assure all that the blade markings are the same as the old early 1970s Gerber Folding Hunter that wore walnut or ebony scales. The handle material appears to be polished aluminum with hardwood inserts, and is very well and professionally made. I do not think this was altered after the initial sale, but rather at the factory...so I'm hoping there are experts on this out there.

Oh wow...not seen one like this before....nice! Yea the blade definitely looks similar to the Sportsman II lockback - not uncommon to put same blades in different frames. I was going to ask about the reverse markings on the blade...if it states PORTLAND, OR over 97223, USA...hard to to tell, but you already stated that all the blade markings are there. 

Can't wait until this mystery is solved for you - good for you! Wish I could help more than confirm what you already suspect.
