The Origins of Gerber

Gerber has an unusual origin story, it was founded almost by accident after Joseph R. Gerber of Portland, Oregon sent out handmade cutlery sets as gifts to his clients one year from his advertising firm.

The cutlery sets proved so popular that catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch requested batches of the knives to add to their official product list from 1939 onwards.

Joseph quickly realized he was onto something and founded Gerber Legendary Blades, the company remained in Oregon though it moved to the town of Tigard, and it quickly grew to become one of the best-known companies of its kind in the country.

Today Gerber is based back in Portland, Oregon where it all began. All of their knives, tools, multitools, and other gear are designed there, with some still manufactured locally. The company now has annual revenues of $100+ million USD and it recently celebrated its 85th anniversary.
