Traveling light and being prepared are not mutually exclusive when you have the Gerber Mini F.A.S.T. Draw Tanto sitting comfortably in your pocket or on your belt. At less than 2 ounces, this folding tactical knife weighs less than your average collection of keys and is far more capable. The Mini gets the same attention to detail as its full-size sibling, including Gerber's proven Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism and safety plunge lock. An everyday carry tactical knife needs to do more than just offer a reliable blade. It needs to be tough enough to handle the routine and unexpected problems. It should also, like any well-designed tool, foster a comfortable and confident grip that lets you focus on the task at hand. It's the Mini's modest size that helps it rise to these demands. Its 2.1-inch tanto-style blade is practical yet truly effective, and together with its molded nylon grip makes for a tool that simply disappears into your pocket until you need it.

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.
