Gerber Blades Outrigger XL
The Outrigger XL blends elements of three of Gerber's most popular clip folders from the past decade into 2.5 ounces of multi-faceted, problem-solving design. The Assisted Opening 2.0 technology--popularized with the Gerber Instant--uses a ball-bearing pivot for buttery smooth, one-handed opening. For added safety, the thumb Plunge Lock on the handle offers easy release when closing, keeping your fingers from the blade's path. The open frame design strips weight out, while adding texture to the body for increased hold. Grippy without feeling sticky, the Outrigger is finished with the same molded, rubberized handle coating that debuted on the AR 3.0, keeping the knife right where it's supposed to be--your hand.
The Outrigger XL's partially-serrated drop point 3.38-inch blade delivers solutions. Making quick work of daily tasks, the fine edge section offers clean, accurate cuts while the serrated portion smoothly dispatches rope, twine or an aluminum can, even after hours of use. The Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism opens quickly and easily, with one hand or two, thanks to dual thumb studs atop the blade. When it's time to close up, just push the Plunge Lock for a positive release and smooth two-handed closure.

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.
