Like the men and women who carry our gear, Gerber is Unstoppable. Decades of innovation and dedication have put us here. Renowned as a master of knives and tools, Gerber’s problem-solving, life-saving products are designed with the unique needs of specific activities in mind. Today that includes much more than a blade.
Designed by Rick Hinderer, the Gerber Torch I features a matte black tanto blade with drop point, dual thumbstud for one-handed opening, and a finger flip that doubles as a finger guard. The partially serrated 2.75-inch blade is made of surgical-grade 7Cr17MoV stainless steel, while the stainless steel handle has a textured glass-filled nylon insert for a good grip. It includes a pocket clip for easy carry and storage (see larger image) as well as a lanyard attachment. The Torch I measures 6.25 inches when open and 3.5 inches when closed, and it weighs a svelte 3.3 ounces. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
