Gerber Gator Fixed Blade Knife
Maybe you're gonna take it hunting with you. Maybe you're just out living your life in a world where things need to be cut. Whatever you're up to, keep your Gator Fixed blade knife handy. Its famous for its patented Gator Grip handles, which has no peer when it comes to all-out grip. The inner core of the handle is glass-filled nylon. Then we chemically bonded it to the outer surface, which is molded Santoprene rubber...creating a soft, tactile grip over a very strong structure. All these years later, and no ones topped it.
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.
