Gerber Legendary Blades
Joseph R. Gerber described his company, Gerber Legendary Blades, when it was founded as 'the birth of a company that will one day grow into a large company'. That was the understatement of the century. What began in 1939 with a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had, a few years later, changed into a company with thousands of customers. By 1960 Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, valued names in the world of knives.
Highest quality requirements
And the company continues to grow and focuses on making knives and tools that can be used for life. The slim, stainless steel sheath blades of the 50s and 60s (the Magnum Hunter) have been further developed into the lightweight open frame blades of today (the Remix). However, Gerber is not just a knife company anymore. Gerber also makes multitools, axes, handsaws, cutlasses, headlights, flashlights, survival kits and excavators. Each and every one of these products meets the highest quality requirements.
