Gerber's famous Lockback folder, the Gator GH, is now available with a drop point guthook blade made from high carbon stainless steel. This knife combines superior ability of a guthook blade with an easy-to-grip, rubberized, near indestructible handle. These features make the Gator GH one of the best full-size folding production knives ever offered to the public.
This knife features a handle made of a hard inner core of glass filled nylon, with Kraton rubber molded through and around the exterior of the inner core. This creates a handle that is soft and tacky when gripped, yet is more durable than wood and metal handled knives.

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.
