Since 1939, Gerber has produced high quality innovative products for the outdoors.
Now here's a knife with some mighty impressive roots. It was brought to market back in 1980 by none other than the man whose last name goes on each of our products. Pete Gerber was the first knife creator to envision the merits of using all-synthetic materials in the handle. He and knife designer Blackie Collins aimed to deliver lightweight performance that had not been seen before in a knife this all-out rugged. The Gerber L.S.T. is the smoothest of operators. With a mechanical action that just feels good and satisfying when you open and close the blade, which happens to be made of 400 series stainless steel. But let's get back to the topic of lightweight performance. The heaviest of the four legendary L.S.T. models musters a mere 1.2 ounces on the scales. Yet, when you feel that easy grip, there's no question that Pete Gerber's big idea is one for the ages.

More than 25 years ago Gerber introduced the world to high tech knives with the Gerber L.S.T Knife. The L.S.T. fits in your pocket, weighs a mere 1.2 ounces, and has a durable, easy-to-grip handle. In fact, Gerber was the first to use an all-synthetic handle. By combining the impact resistance and incredible strength-to-weight ratio of reinforced nylon with the reliability of a stainless steel blade, Gerber ushered in the first of many knife advancements. Fold the knife blade closed to stash it in your pocketAAAyou'll barely know it's there.
