Gerber GDC Tech Skin Single Blade Pocket Knife
The Gerber GDC Tech Skin Pocket Knife has one goal: Be there for the tasks you should never have to take on without a blade. If you've ever bitten off a tag with your teeth, opened a well-sealed envelope with a car key, or broken down a refrigerator-sized cardboard box with bare hands, you know exactly what we're talking about.
But your pocket knife should never put a scratch down the face of your gleaming, new smartphone as they jostle around in your bag or front pocket. Which is why we've wrapped this one in a protective, non-scratch coating to protect the other, more sensitive tools you may have.
The GDC Tech Skin Pocket Knife can handle all the day-to-day tasks an everyday carry should, but what it doesn't do is the hidden beauty of this compact knife. With no metal showing when closed, it will never scratch the other daily essentials you carry with you, like your phone, tablet or laptop. And at a compact 3.4 inches when closed, it will never hog space in your pocket or bag.
Its sharp, 2.5-inch, drop point blade is always there in your bag or pocket, ready to help you open a package, sharpen a pencil or cut a sandwich to share with a friend. Made of stainless steel, the blade resists rust and corrosion and holds a sharp, fine edge. The lock back safety function means that blade won't fold up in the middle of your handiwork.
Though compact, the handle is made from grippy rubberized Techhide with an added rubberized thumb stud on each side, so it's easy to keep a firm grip as you cut, chop or slice.

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.
