Long having a reputation for overall toughness making them suitable for many outdoors uses, Gerber knives have come to represent legendary reliability and long lasting quality in a variety of extreme use situations.
Based in Portland, Oregon Joseph Gerber, then in advertising, hired a local knife maker in 1910 to make him 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as gifts to his advertising clients. These early Gerber knives proved to be successful with the clients, so much so that the acclaim of the knives was widely spread and demand rapidly rose for similar knives to be produced. Ever the astute businessman, Mr. Gerber left his ad business and by 1939 had launched Gerber Legendary Blades.
