Company History

Gerber knives was established by Joseph "Ham" Gerber in 1938. The full company name was established as Gerber Legendary Blades. The original products were produced by another well known name in knife history, David Murphy. Murphy had a rocky business relationship with Gerber, and ceased his association with the company to produce his own knives for the Soldiers of WWII. Gerber knives were produced after the war, when Ham Gerber began to produce knives with his son Pete. Many famous knife makers got their start at the Gerber factory, names such as Al Mar and Pete Kershaw having had the benefit of working and learning the knife trade at the Gerber knife factory.

In 1987, Pete Gerber sold Gerber knives. They are now a wholly owned subsidary of Fiskars. Fiskars continues the tradition, innovation, and high quality of the past. Fixed blade knives and folders produced with high tech materials and construction are the norm with Gerber original designs. Since 1938, almost 70 years, the Gerber name has been one of the finest knife manufactures in the production of hunting, tactical, and utility designs.

When Joseph R. Gerber described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the, “birth of an enterprise that grew into big business,” it was true, but it was an understatement for sure. What had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had turned into thousands of retail accounts around the country. By 1960, Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, appreciated and collected names in knives.
