The Gerber StrongArm is a testament to Gerber's enduring legacy of crafting robust fixed-blade knives for the US military since 1968. This survival knife combines a familiar design cherished by Gerber enthusiasts with perfected features.
Let's begin with the blade. The full tang construction spans 4.8 inches and is expertly crafted from 420HC stainless steel. This blade material excels in field sharpening and withstands the rigors of outdoor use. To minimize reflection and enhance corrosion resistance, the blade boasts a sleek black ceramic coating. While this version offers a fine edge, the StrongArm is also available with a serrated option.
The full tang handle is equipped with a diamond-textured rubber overmold, ensuring a secure grip in any weather condition. The Coyote Brown handle adds a touch of distinction, but an all-black version is also available for those seeking a sleek aesthetic.
For added versatility, the pommel features a striking surface, enabling it to break through tough materials and assist in rescue operations.
Gerber has dedicated special attention to the StrongArm's sheath as well. The modular sheath system allows users to carry it in various positions—vertically using MOLLE, horizontally on a belt, or even strapped around the leg.
This fixed blade knife proudly bears the "Portland, OR" etching on the back of its blade, signifying its origin in the United States. Crafted with utmost precision, the Gerber StrongArm embodies a legacy of durability and reliability, ensuring it is ready for any challenge you may face.

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.
