Gerber E-Z Out Jr, 2.38" Serrated Blade, GFN Handle - 6551
The popularity of the E-Z Out line from Gerber is not surprising. These simple yet hard-working knives developed a strong following thanks to a versatile design and reliable construction. The Gerber E-Z Out Jr takes the strength and adaptability of the original and works it into a smaller package.
The 2.38-inch blade is made from high carbon stainless steel. The blade deploys effortlessly with a thumb notch (hence the name E-Z Out!) and stays in place with a lock back mechanism. This iteration of the E-Z Out Jr features a partially serrated edge with a small swedge to increase its piercing abilities.
And, of course, the E-Z Out Jr boasts the durable polycarbonate handle with Softgrip inserts that made the original so beloved. It's so comfortable, you'll never want to let it go.
|Blade Edge||Partially Serrated/ComboEdge|

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.
