Gerber – Limited-Edition Strong-Arm & Ghostrike Knives

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.”



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.



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.

    Rename the LMT knife all you want, Gerber. It’s still a heavy piece of shit.

      The Strong-Arm is nothing like the big LMT knife.

      The Strong-Arm is VERY light, by comparison.

      It is also one of the best <$50, USA made knives that I have ever used.

      TOTALLY DIFFERENT KNIVES. The Lmf2 was made specifically for downed pilots, the pummel is not connected to the knife tang to prevent shock when cutting threw wires. Also the knives are not similar at all, other than it being a typical drop point thats where it ends. I’ve used the Strongarm for over a year and its one amazing tool for the money. The sheath system is totally different, the grip and pummel are a completely different design. The LMF is great for the purpose it was made, but folks like to baton knives instead of using a propped tool like an axe or hatchet. The LMF is not a woods knife and 95% of the failures were do to people hitting the hilt with a baton and shattering the inner core breaking the glass filled nylon innards. The Strongarm is one solid handle bonded to a solid full tang, if someone breaks that handle then they shouldn’t be using knives IMHO.
