Part of the legend of the Gerber name is our ever-expanding list of special use knives. The E-Z Out Rescue is a prime example.
Designed for scenarios when you need to cut without risk of poking or puncturing adjacent surfaces such as someone's flesh. This knife can be seen clipped on the pockets of search rescue types. The blunt tip will do no harm. Yet the wickedly serrated blade is gonna cut through stuff like crazy. Its fast, efficient, effective, and measures 3.51 from hilt to tip.
The bright yellow handle is made of super-strong thermoplastic that's reinforced with fiberglass. And those black rubber inserts you see? That's a material called Kraton, which we engineered in for extra gripping performance.

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.
