Gerber Knives – A Brief History and Knife Reviews

Joseph R. Gerber once described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the, “birth of an enterprise that grew into big business,” it was completely true.

It was also a vast understatement because what had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts turned into thousands of retail accounts around the country.

By 1960, Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, appreciated, and collected names in knives and, in the over 70 years since it’s founding, Gerber Legendary Blades continues to grow.

Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber’s “enterprise,” Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use.

In fact, the sleek, stainless steel, sheath knives of the ’50s and ’60s (such as the Magnum Hunter) have given birth to today’s lightweight, open-frame, clip folders (such as the Remix).

However, Gerber is no longer just a knife company since they now produce Multi-tools, axes, handsaws, machetes, headlamps, flashlights, survival kits, and digging implements (these are the newest directions that Gerber explores with the same standards of quality and design that inform their revered knife making).
