Gerber Gear was founded in 1939 by Joseph R. Gerber. It began as a small business in Portland, Oregon, creating handmade knife sets as holiday gifts. These gifts were so well-received that Joseph was encouraged to start Gerber Legendary Blades, which marked the beginning of the company’s journey into the knife-making industry.

During World War II, the company shifted its focus to meet military demands, producing utility knives and bayonets for American servicemen. This period established Gerber’s long-standing relationship with the military, a connection that continues today. Post-war, Gerber expanded its offerings to include a wider range of knives suited for hunting, fishing, and general outdoor leisure activities​​.

The 1960s marked another significant milestone when Gerber began collaborating with Al Mar, a renowned knife designer. This partnership resulted in important designs like the Gerber Mark I and Mark II, which became standard issue for the U.S. military.

The ComplEAT Utensil Set

The ComplEAT Utensil Set from Gerber was developed to provide a lightweight solution that would hopefully result in a reduction in the amount of disposable plastic being used by hikers and campers. The set consists of a deep spoon and a fork made from lightweight anodized aluminum.

These two utensils are paired with a black dual-sided spatula that clicks onto the fork, creating a pair of barbecue tongs. Once you’re done cooking, you can unclip the spatula and fork, and use them for eating.
