Gerber Bear Grylls TinderBox Firestarter
A key factor in surviving in the wild is how well you can get a fire going. With the BG Tinderbox, building a fire just got easier. It features a steel cutting surface that makes creating tinder easy and the frame is wrapped in high grip rubber to keep it securely in your hand. With a simple push of a button, the cutting surface pivots to the side and the tinder is available to use. Creating tinder is only one part of building a fire, you have to get it lit, too. While matches or a fire starter work well, the Tinderbox features a magnifying glass that will get the job done as well. And, when you need it, turn the Tinderbox over and use it to signal for help.

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 BladesÂ®. 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 YorkÂs 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 TridentÂ, 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 RecoilÂ Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
