Gerber De Facto - Tan
In close quarters combat, speed of deployment is key. If a soldier's primary weapon system is compromised, they need an immediate, easily accessible solution to defend against physical threat. Developed with veteran SF operators, our knife has a four-inch spear-point blade, dual serrations, rubberized grip and spike pommel that quickly transforms an empty hand into a lethal defense weapon.What sets this knife apart is its innovative sheath locking system- a ,weapons hot" friction lock for fast, unrestrained deployment in danger close situations and a secondary retention lock to ensure that the knife isn't lost during high-speed insertion.

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.
