An excellent water sports knife, the Gerber River Shorty excels in responding to the unique requirements of rafting, paddling and diving. With its sturdy stainless steel blade, extremely light glass filled nylon handle, and deliberately stunted tip, the River Shorty can be carried into a myriad of high difficulty water-related situations in its sheath designed expressly for mounting onto a PFD.

Well-polished in order to limit corrosion, the River Shorty does the job in watery elements without making waves. The 3-inch blade offers major versatility, with a small partial serration on the lower edge, and a longer, beefier serration on the upper edge. Remove the lightweight knife from its sheath clipped to a PFD to quickly hack at reeds, cut a tie-off rope, or sever cord. Use the River Shorty back at camp to slice into a watermelon after lunch.

More Gerber Items

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York’s famous Museum of Modern Art.

From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident™, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.

Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil™ Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
