Straight Out Of The Bronze Age

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

SSD Reader Heinrich sent us this great photo with caption. Thanks for the find!

Hello,

While recently traveling in Vietnam, I found this Gerber Mark II Commando Dagger in a small provincial museum in Quy Nhon (Bình Dinh Province). It looks like straight out of the bronze age and must have a fairly spooky history. But since Gerber introduced the Mark II in 1967, the description of the museum is probably not correct. It would be interesting, what your readers, who may have served in this area at the time, can speculate about its origin.

Sincerely,

Heinrich

Gerber – 06 AUTO : 10TH Anniversary Knife

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Coming July 1st, Gerber is releasing a 10th Anniversary version of their 06 AUTO.

To honor the heritage and time-tested durability of the 06 Automatic family of knives, Gerber introduces a special, commemorative edition of this military favorite. This knife celebrates a decade of service, developed specifically to support American service members deploying globally. With hundreds of thousands issued to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines over the years, the iconic platform is a familiar favorite to many.

Features:
-An Olive Drab Cerakote® coated aluminum represents the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) of American troops deploying early in OEF and OIF.
-A Stone Washed, Fine Edge, S30V blade pays homage to the unrelenting durability of the platform, battle tested globally.
-Unique laser mark. To commemorate 10 years of service, the laser engraving features a reverse flag. The reverse American flag originates from the action of early US cavalry and infantry carrying the flag into battle. Always charging forward, the flag would be seen with the stars in front and stripes flowing behind. Today, Army Regulation 670-1 addresses the application and wear of the flag on the uniform, ensuring that the “star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right”. Rich in historical symbolism, the reverse flag represents the will and bravery of those deployed in service of the United States.

Warrior West – Gerber Custom Fit Sheath

Friday, May 6th, 2016

The Gerber Custom Fit Sheath is an adaptive sheath system that will accommodate a wide variety of items as well as carry methods. The pouches are adjustable for height and width as well as retention. This is because it uses a combination of elastic and Velcro. One of the key features of the Custom Fit Sheath is the unidirectional Velcro which is called Quiet Deploy Velcro. You can adjust the height of the flap and tightness of the retention at the rear of the pouch.

It is available in both Dual and Quad versions. The Quad model is shown here amd it’s called a quad becuase each side has two slots, one in front of the other. This allows for a light and a knife, for example.

The pouch is fully PALS compliant but can also be attached to traditional belts.

Additionally, while these are made overseas, fully Berry compliant versions in Coyote are on their way.

Gerber – Freescape Camp Saw

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

Here’s another great Christmas gift idea.  The Gerber Freescape Camp Saw accepts standard 12″ saw blades and folds flat for storage.  Unlike many folding saws, the Fresscape utilizes 4 pivot points to effectively cut larger diameter wood while using the full length of the blade. When folded up, the blade is protected and can be stowed safely in a gear kit or camp bin.  The bright green color makes it easy to find and the rubber handle is for a positive grip.

AUSA – Gerber Silver Trident

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

While Gerber’s Silver Trident isn’t exactly brand new, I don’t feel that it has received the attention it deserves.

  

A William Harsey, Jr. and Chief Watson (a founding member of Navy Seal Team 2) design collaboration, the Silver Trident features a 6.5″ double serrated blade made from 154CM.  The handle is overmolded with  two densities of Hytrel, a rubbery compound, with a rock hard center and softer, textured outer layer.  The steel butt is meant for hammering and the knife comes with a ballistic nylon sheath.

Gator Premium is an upgrade to the iconic Gator line, which features blades made from S30V steel. The handles of these new knives have a scaly texture very much inspired by their namesake, and they also come with similarly textured sheaths. Only the fixed blade has the metal pommel, although both knives feature lanyard holes. Not pictured are the GH models with a hooked point.
