All the Essentials You Need for Emergencies at Your Fingertips
When you wish to have one tool for a rescue, bank on the Gerber 22-41870 Hinderer Combat Life Saver Knife with Serrated Edge. Rick Hinderer, a firefighter and knife designer, conceived and designed this knife based on real-life experiences, giving it one of the most important features a firefighter will need at the same time as keeping the size small and convenient.
The knife has a 3.5-inch, sharp serrated blade that safely slices through seatbelts, and it’ll cut through just about anything you can encounter in the field. The knife also features a window punch and an oxygen tank valve opener.
The knife is crafted with an attention to detail: it includes large features and mechanisms so that it may be used at the same time as wearing turnout gloves without problems. An oversized thumbstud makes it easy to open the blade, and the ergonomic handle keeps your hand comfortable at the same time as you work.
Gerber’s History of Ingenuity
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a number of the company traits that contributed to Gerber’s emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon’s Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular, Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.
For more than half a century, Gerber Legendary Blades has been helping people fend for themselves. Gerber designs popular, dependable tools and knives in conjunction with other outdoor gear that helps users accomplish whatever tasks they may be faced with, promoting the lost art of self-reliance.
