Gerber identity

Gerber consumers go outdoors to seek sustenance of spirit. They are deeply connected to the world they recreate, knowing it takes strength to follow the harder route. Gerber products are made to be on that journey with them. Whether they bring back dinner, a new summit, or simply just their stories, easy doesn’t feed our souls and easy doesn’t make anything memorable. Simply put, easy doesn’t.

“From day one of gathering insights for the fishing line, the team understood that the world didn’t need another set of basic pliers or more re-branded nail clippers. The north star of each project was enabling anglers to make the most of their hard-earned time on the water through innovation. This was done through the implementation of thoughtful details and features that did not interfere with the tool’s primary function, but rather enhanced it.”

Our heritage

In 1939, Pete Gerber and his father Joseph, who owned an advertising firm in Portland, sent a small batch of handmade cutlery sets to their clients for the holidays. These knives proved to be so popular that catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch requested more of the knives to sell in their catalog. Gerber Legendary Blades was born that same year, and the tradition of crafting world-class knives and tools has remained ever since.

Increasing sustainable materials in new packaging

In an ongoing effort to protect the environment, Gerber is reducing the use of plastics and other harmful materials in its packaging. Gerber uses 100% recyclable kraft material, completely exposed products, molded pulp trays, and corrugate inserts, and reduced plastic and paper size on larger products. Gerber’s Fishing Collection is the first of many products that will feature sustainable packaging.
