The Gerber Ultralight LST is the only personal knife you'll ever need! So light you'll forget it's there, yet ready to swing into action at a moment's notice, the LST is a super-versatile, easy-open knife with a overall weight of only 0.6 oz.
The original was brought to the market way back in 1980 by Mr. Pete Gerber himself. He elicited the help of the legendary Blackie Collins to design a simple but effective knife that was lightweight and rugged.
The blade is 1.96 inches and features 420HC stainless steel, making it able to withstand the elements while conforming to nearly all knife laws.
The highlight at the time of its release was its glass-filled nylon handles, and its tactile textured handle continues to be a major selling point. A lanyard hole at the back allows for more security when holding the knife.
If you're not sold yet, the Gerber Ultralight LST is not only a steal but is entirely made in the United States of America. It doesn't get much better than that.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, 'Blackie' Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James 'Patches' Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
