More Info on Gerber Gear

When did we decide campgrounds needed laundromats? When the car stalled,whose bright idea was it to reach for a cell phone instead of a tool?

There was a time when the words "quick" and "fix" were never found together in the same sentence. When our homes needed to be built, we grabbed brothers, fathers and hammers, not a mouse that clicked on Mr. On-line Contractor. Our nation's great accomplishments were a testament to hard work, sweat and ingenuity. After all, we not only put a man on the moon, but built him a rover to drive while he was up there.

What will we achieve today?

Can we turn our cheek to the enemy known as convenience before it makes us helpless? Do we have what it takes to depend solely on ourselves?

As you ponder these questions, we invite you to join us on our mission.

We're Gerber®. We design the tools, knives and outdoor gear that are essential, not only for the task at hand, but for bringing back something lost: our self-reliance.

Gerber. Fend For Yourself.

Gerber's Uppercut Punch Dagger - Review

I know there are still a lot of people in the law enforcement industry – and other warrior services as well – who feel that boot knives, hide-away knives, and other such tools don’t have a place in the profession. I think that the circumstances weigh greatly on that decision and would rather have such a tool available just in case I need it, rather than needing it but not having it available.

Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Multi-Tool

I was real happy with the spring-loaded pliers function and got pretty good at opening and closing the two knife blades one-handed.

Gerber LHR Knife: A Field Test

Anyone who has seen Harseys's or Reeve's work before will recognize some of their handiwork. The ergonomically shaped handle and the steady curve of the back of the grip that merges into the spine of the blade with a smoothness only interrupted by the hint of an angled hilt looks familiar.

Given that the knife is specifically designed for working on or near the water, I felt it would be best to test it while wet.

The Expert-M, although designed for military use, is obviously equally well suited for law enforcement or self-defense use.

Gerber 06 Fast Clip Knife

Checking over the knife after the fact I found that the edge was still in good condition and the lock had no play in it. It had survived what I threw at it.
