S.A.H., Safety Auto Hook Knife
The Safety Auto Hook knife enhances the benefits of Gerber knife technology with the addition of a DZUS fastener/Flat driver as well as a safety Auto Hook. This knife not only allows the war fighter to effectively slash away rigging and harnesses with the push of a button, but troops can use the Safety Auto Hook to more easily exit downed aircraft and damaged vehicles and take the fight to the enemy. During an emergency situation there are precious few seconds that separate life and death. The S.A.H. has been made to allow our military customer to capture those seconds and use them to their advantage.

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.
