Blade Show West 18 – Gerber Flatiron

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

I really like the Flatiron’s cleaver design. It features a 3.6″ blade paired with a textured G-10 composite handle. Well, I guess I should clarify. The scale on the side with the lock, is aluminum. The other one is G10.

You’ll notice the extra plate beside the lock. That’s to keep a tight grip from indexing the lock during opening and slowing it preventing a complete opening to full lock.

Details:
? Full length: 8.5″
? Blade length: 3.8″
? Blade steel: 7Cr17MoV
? Cleaver style, satin finish blade
? Thumb hole for one-hand opening
? G-10 composite handle scales
? Frame lock
? Pocket clip

Gerber Reimagines Backcountry Meals With New Multi-Tools: Compleat & Devour

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

PORTLAND, OREGON (July 23rd 2018) – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of knives, multi-tools, and gear, announced today the introduction of two new multi-tools to cleverly streamline dining in the backcountry: the ComplEAT and the Devour. The first look at both products comes at Outdoor Retailer 2018 in Denver, Colorado, ahead of the products’ launch in early 2019. Both products are available in 4 distinct colors that aim to appeal aesthetically to the outdoor enthusiast: Silver, Flat Sage, Onyx, and Burnt Bronze. The ComplEAT Cook Eat Clean tool retails for $24.99 and the Devour Multi-Fork retails for $14.99.

“The goal was to create a multi-tool that addressed the entire eating process while in the backcountry: preparing food, eating, and cleaning up after,” says Eric Moore, Product Manager at Gerber. “Gerber presents two complimentary solutions to multi-task around the campfire or on the trail. The Devour is a minimalist tool at less than 1 ounce, with a removable solid state tool that mounts to the back and kickstands the tool to keep it off dirty surfaces and out of your cooking pot. The ComplEAT focuses on the organization of dedicated tools, working independently as well as configuring to a tong to bring the convenience of a home kitchen to the wild. Don’t go hungry with two solutions to keep your adventures nourished and Unstoppable.”

On the trail, the most important meal of the day is the meal you are about to eat. The ComplEAT tool has the bases covered with a long tine fork, deep basin spoon, dual-edge spatula, and 4 function multi-tool that nest for transport as well as snap together to convert into functional tongs. The multi-tool includes a bottle opener, veggie peeler, serrated package opener, and a can opener. Cook, eat, clean and get back out there.

At under an ounce, the Devour Multi-Fork is ideal for those who demand a lightweight, easy-to-use tool on the trail. Designed to handle mealtime from start to finish, the Devour has 9 tools on hand for prep, eating, and cleaning. The refreshed fork design doesn’t compromise function, and the detachable solid state tool offers 6 functions while keeping your multi-fork out of the dirt or pot with a unique kickstand design.

Gerber – Limited-Edition Strong-Arm & Ghostrike Knives

Monday, November 6th, 2017

PORTLAND, OREGON (November 3rd, 2017) – GERBER, a category-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, just announced it will debut limited-edition versions of two best-selling products: the StrongArm Fixed Blade and Ghostrike Fixed Blade. The new variations of these popular fixed blades is two-fold; each blade has been upgraded to BDZ-1 steel with a stonewash finish, and the rubberized handles come in Tactical Grey. Both the StrongArm and the Ghostrike are proudly built in the USA at Gerber’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility.

“Gerber is always looking for ways to solve problems – that’s what we do,” says Karrson Koivisto, Product Manager at Gerber.

“The BDZ-1 Strongarm and Ghostrike products are ideal for adept users looking for enhanced edge retention while maintaining sharpening capability. Colors have been adjusted to an urban pairing of stonewash finished BDZ-1 and tactical grey overmold, a subtle combination welcome to any user’s kit. Gerber is building a limited quantity of this iteration of the best-in-class Strongarm and Ghostrike Fixed Blade Knives.”

STRONG-ARM BDZ-1

The limited edition Strong-Arm is better prepared for the urban environment. It’s unique, multi-mount sheath system is easy to use and can be mounted vertically on MOLLE, horizontally on a belt, or in traditional drop-leg set-up. Due to its ability to achieve high hardness, excellent edge retention, and stain resistance the knife employs BDZ-1 blade steel – an ideal steel for utility and combat scenarios where your knife will be faced with broad applications.

The limited-edition Strongarm BDZ-1 combines a stonewashed, BDZ-1 full fine edge blade with tactical grey rubber handles, which complement a variety of urban-specific camouflage patterns.

GHOSTRIKE BDZ-1

The option for concealed carry lies at the heart of the Ghostrike’s design – it is lightweight, easy to access, and the slim profile allows for a variety of discreet carry options on the belt. With a customizable sheath system for low profile and reduced printing, the Ghostrike is always on hand and ready at a moment’s notice.
