NEW GERBER SHARKBELLY KNIFE NOW AVAILABLE

Monday, July 24th, 2017

PORTLAND, OREGON (July 25th, 2017) – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announces the introduction of the new Sharkbelly. This smartly designed knife is an update to the classic everyday carry pocket knife with lightweight utility and standout features. Designed and built in Gerber’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility, this American made knife is available in partially serrated and full fine edge blade variations.

The 420HC modern sheepsfoot-style blade is easily deployed with a sizable thumb hole, revealing flat top serrations that are easy to sharpen on a flat stone and practical for daily use. The tactile SharkSkin Grip™ succeeds in function and aesthetics with unidirectional scales that provide additional traction when in hand – smooth in one direction and grippy in the other.

The SharkBelly’s scratch-resistant wire pocket clip means it can be worn anywhere without worry of causing damage to a car, bike, or other valuables you might brush up against, and weighing in at just under 2.3 oz, it has a place in any pocket or pack.

Learn more about the Sharkbelly here. $39, available now.

Bear Grylls Parang Recall

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

I was at REI today and I saw a recall notice for the Gerber Gear Bear Grylls Parang. It seems that there’s a weakness in the area where the blade meets the handle. This can cause either the blade or the handle to break during use which poses a laceration hazard. If you happened to have purchase one of these blades, you can register at this page, where Gerber will process your info, send out a prepaid FedEx box, and send you a replacement parang some weeks later. Given the quality of the blade, I’d rather receive a refund, but you get what you get, I suppose.

Apocalypse – Gerber Gear

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

A number of Gerber blades have shown up on ‘The Walking Dead’, everybody’s favorite Zombie-comic-book-turned-tv-show. I was too absorbed in the story (and Zombie killin’) to notice most of them, which is perfectly fine by me. Of course, now if anyone decides to purchase any of these tools, they’ll surely have ‘As Seen On The Walking Dead’ prominently displayed on the packaging. After that, who knows how long before Gerber does their own line of specialized anti-Zombie blades.
