Battlefields and tactics ceaselessly evolve, requiring versatile, dependable gear that keeps up with the changing demands of combat and field survival. Gerber has forged survival knives for the brave men and women of America's Armed Forces since 1966, building on past experiences, while continuing to innovate. Gerber’s StrongArm pays homage to this storied heritage, fusing traditional form with a cutting edge sheath system that is the first of its kind. The revolutionary snap-together sheath is easy to use and features multiple mounting options, keeping the StrongArm ever at the ready and always within reach. Affix it vertically on MOLLE, horizontally on a belt or don it in the traditional drop-leg fashion. As incredible as the advanced sheath is, the StrongArm Fixed Blade Knife is still the heart and soul of this potent ensemble. It boasts a Cerakote-coated, partially serrated 4 4/5" 420 high carbon steel blade wed to a tough glass-filled nylon handle with no-slip rubber overmold. Proudly made in the USA, the StrongArm is a superb example of Gerber's unrivaled engineering prowess and top quality manufacturing. Customizable to your ever-changing needs in the field, the Gerber StrongArm is truly the smart evolution of the classic fixed blade.
