Gerber Ridge, 1.98" Black Serrated Blade, Steel Handle - 45898
How much does one and half ounces feel like in your hand? Not much at all, really. Almost nothing. Yet when it takes the form of the Ridge, you're carrying a whole lotta knife. And because it's from Gerber Legendary Blades, you can have a reasonable expectation of heavyweight performance.
Notice how the edge of the non-stick stainless steel blade is as straight as can be. That means you'll get absolutely even cutting pressure regardless of which part of the blade you're using. Its a strong little knife. With all the attitude you'd ever want or need.
So go ahead. Clip this pint-sized monster into your pocket. Take it with you wherever you go. Whip it out and open it with one-handed ease whenever there's something that needs to be cut. The Ridge and Mini Ridge will stand tall for you. Every dang time.

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.
