The reason Gerber is considered one of the most trusted names in Blades and Tools is simply because they will out last the user. With 70+ years of experience designing and manufacturing some of the most durable and reliable knives and tools on the planet they are a serious top contender for your hard earned dollar. Who needs Gerber? Anyone interested in a tool that won't quite.
The right for tool for the job is usually the one you have on you. Which is why you should carry a knife that can perform on command, time after time, until it becomes as familiar as well-worn wallet, and just as comfortable to use. The Gerber Outrigger is that knife.
A reliable daily carry knife needs to do more than cut well. It has to be pickup truck tough without monster truck heavy, open fast and easily, and sit comfortably in your hand. The blade should make quick work of slicing everything from stubborn knots to lunch, but not be so long or short that it's awkward or out of balance.
