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.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Slices paper right out of the box
Though I prefer fixed blade knives, and nearly always carry one, I also like having a small folder for lighter chores, to save the fixed blade for emergencies or tasks requiring a stout blade and a full tang. I like that this knife is U.S. made, that it's sharp right from the factory, that it's incredibly light, and that the blade has no wobble. The knife is so light that I have to feel for it to make sure it's still in my jeans pocket. The jury is still out on how well the blade stays sharp with use (Hence four, not five, stars), but it cut paper right from the box, and that's a good start. Many years ago, I had and lost a Gerber Folding Sportsman 1, which was classier, though heavier. I still miss that old FS!, but am pleased with the LST.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
good light-duty pocket knife
Use for everyday stuff like opening boxes, mail, cutting small branches, etc. Lightweight with a good steel (same as buck knife steel). 3-finger handle allows for decent leverage when cutting. A little too big for dress pants.
