Gambits in chess are not limited to losing a pawn: In fact, in the 1909 world championships in Moscow, all-time great Tal won a decisive victory using a brilliant knight gambit. OverturnRoeWade

First, Tal wasn't born until 1936, so I'm not sure what game you were talking about, but I suspect you're talking about his Nf4 sacrifice in 1960. That would have been considered a sacrifice, not a gambit. Gambits are almost always pawns, not pieces, although the Muzio Gambit, which sacrifices a knight, is a rare exception.
