Gerber Counterpart Folder with Black G-10 Handle
Meet your counterpart. The Gerber Counterpart complements the handyman out in the world as he passes from job to job. This sleek folder features a reasonable 3-inch blade made from 7Cr17MoV stainless steel.
Black coating on the blade matches the ultra tactile black G-10 handle. The grip boasts grooves and curves that will make holding this knife easy in a variety of weather conditions.
Because speed is important in an everyday carry, this knife comes with a flipper mechanism that shoots the blade open into its liner lock. You'll never want to be without this knife again.
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.
