Gerber Vertebrae, 2.4" Blade, Flat Sage Rubber Handle - 30-001500
The smaller sibling to the larger Spine, the Vertebrae is intentionally-sized for hikers and climbers who want to ensure that any added weight is worth it. The blade is ideal for quick tasks on-the-go and is easy to stow on the lumbar strap of a backpack.
- Not your average combat fixed blade, this knife is hard-wired for outdoor adventures
- Vibrant colors are easy to spot at the campsite or on the trail
- The grippy, textured handle feels secure in hand when working through kindling, rope, or opening up trail mix
- The oversized lanyard hole handily accommodates multiple sizes of rope, twine, or carabiner
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.
