When I started looking for my first hunting knife I had quite the task ahead of me. Which brand do I buy? Where would I find the best knife for the best price? These are all questions we face when looking for a high quality blade. The easiest thing would probably be to buy a knife from every manufacturer. However, since that isn't too probable we need to look into each brand. We need to figure out what makes them who they are today. Well to do that we show you the history of Gerber Legendary Blades.
 
When Joseph R. Gerber described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the, “birth of an enterprise that grew into big business,” it was true, but it was an understatement for sure. What had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had 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.
 
Over 70 years since its founding and Gerber continues to grow. 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. The sleek, stainless steel sheath knives of the ’50s and ’60s (the Magnum Hunter) have given birth to today’s lightweight, open-frame clip folders (the Remix). Gerber is, however, no longer just a knife company. Multi-tools, axes, handsaws, machetes, headlamps, flashlights, survival kits, digging implements - these are the newest directions of survival gear that Gerber explores with the same standards of quality and design that inform their revered knife making.
 
If you are looking for a high quality blade. There are many factors to choose from. But know this, if you are looking for a top notch, high quality blade. Gerber Legendary Blades provides just that. Get your Gerber knife today and see why they are know as one of the best!

We know survival does not begin or end with the gear and tools you have at hand, but the knowledge you have in mind.
