GB6050: Ultralight LST - 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: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
The best small knife you can ever buy.
After 30 years I lost my first knife and used it for just about anything from opening a letter, cutting string, cleaning fish and just about anything else I needed to cut. So of course the few days I was without I felt lost. Thankfully Gerber still made this perfect pocket size knife. I wouldn't want any other.

Cons: None
Great everyday carry...
This knife is just what I was looking for. It is ultra light and just the right size that you don't even realize it's in your pocket. It also feels like a quality knife when opening and closing. The only thing I wasn't pleased with was knife center showed it was in stock when it wasn't and it took about 5 or 6 weeks to get it.
