Manufacturer: Gerber 45803
Gerber, with their full line of multi tools, lights, and blades, are at the forefront of the industry consistently producing the finest tools and blades for the past 70+ years. Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber's "enterprise," Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use. There is a reason that their multi tools, lights, and blades can be found on the hips, in the pockets and packs of police officers, emt's, military units, and other first responders world wide... they work and work well.
Remember the very first time you saw an image of the Stealth Bomber? With its aggressive lines and matte black paint job? Well the Guardian Back-Up probably belongs on board that bird. Because the overall look and attitude is much the same. This is a professional fixed blade knife that takes a mighty serious cut at self defense. It features blackened and therefore non-reflective stainless steel in a 3/4 tang blade. It's lightweight. It's compact. It's effortless to carry, and agile to use. Importantly, the Santoprene-covered nylon handle is very much at home in the hand of those who take on life's nastier tasks. Don't overlook the patented sheath. It lets you adjust the withdraw tension to suit your individual style. Clip it to your boot or belt or your strap, and you'll never be without a reliable back-up.
