GB6009: LST - Drop Point, Plain Edge
Now here's a knife with some mighty impressive roots. It was brought to market back in 1980 by none other than the man whose last name goes on each of our products. Pete Gerber was the first knife creator to envision the merits of using all-synthetic materials in the handle. He and knife designer Blackie Collins aimed to deliver lightweight performance that had not been seen before in a knife this all-out rugged.

The Gerber L.S.T. is the smoothest of operators. With a mechanical action that just feels good and satisfying when you open and close the blade, which happens to be made of 400 series stainless steel.

But lets get back to the topic of lightweight performance. The heaviest of the four legendary L.S.T. models musters a mere 1.2 ounces on the scales. Yet, when you feel that easy grip, there's no question that Pete Gerber's big idea is one for the ages.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: Handle Feel, None
Good substitute
I used to only carry the Gerber LST magnum Jr. Fantastic pocket knife. Kept it's edge, easy to open, light weight. Used it daily for opening packages, mail, cutting boxes down. I loved it for it's thicker handle and finger grips. I gave one to my wife and she loved it. After mistakenly BOTH having ours on us as we went through TSA, we had to give them up. No problem, they're under $20 so I'll just pick up some new ones. No such luck. Gerber stopped making them (WHY????). We were both devastated. So I resorted to this LST. At first I hated it. It's thinner handle felt feminine, and no finger grips. But the blade is the same one I loved from the magnum jr. Over time I've adjusted to the thinner handle, but also picked up a pair of new old stock magnums on ebay which I find myself not using for fear of losing them. This LST is a good substitute, excellent blade which retains it sharpness, and an overall handy pocket knife I have on me at all times (well, except for when going through TSA now).

Cons: None
Great lightweight knife. Wish they still came w/ the nylon pocket clip
I love this knife! I owned many (and lost many - TSA, ocean, ...). I t is very lightweight, sturdy and reliable. It weighs only 1.3 oz with the nylon pocket clip and screw. The only problem is that the nylon pocket clips are no longer available, and have not been available for many years. I carry my LST all the time. If you accidentally brush up again your expensive car, the nylon clip will not scratch the paint! C'mon, Gerber, start making the clips again!
