LHR Serrated w/ Sheath
In the urban warfare environment, soliders recognized the need for a close quarter combat knife.

Harsey Jr. to create the L.H.R. The quick-release sheath has a built-in safety release that can only release the knife by the wearer. The textured TacHide handle provides sure grip in wet conditions. Proudly made in U.S.A.

I wear this knife on my thigh when I go backpacking in mountain parks. We can't bring guns into our parks, so this riding on my leg is my last line of defence in animal encounters. It feels good in the hand, has a balance that ought to be envied, and because of its low ride it doesn't interfere with my pack like a belt-knife would. It's always there when I need it. I carry it alongside a Prodigy (for utility) which I wear on my shoulder harness when trekking, and revert to as my hip-carry once we've reached base-camp.
Please bring back this beautifully crafted. knife. I have been a life long Gerber customer and I truly would like to have this knife in my Gerber collection. l
Are you guys at Gerber riding the short bus or something? Do you not see the amount of love people have for this knife? It was one of THE best knives produced by your company and you DISCONTINUED it?? BRING BACK THE LHR...
Bring it back. Can't find this knife even on the used market.
Bring it back
why is a good design like this discontinued? such a waste.
I would really like to purchase one ASAP, please bring it back.
Please bring it back ill buy 2
I've had the luxury of holding one of these in my hands, but to buy another it is discontinued! Please bring us back the knife to buy!
let me answer that. Since MARCH 2013 people are posting to bring this Amazing, Gorgeous peace of art back to life.
I have never ever seen something like that quality and for that price. This will be my third time I beg you to bring back this knife. FOR GOD SAKE BRING IT BACK. Or at least give a reasonable cause why you guys dont bring it back.
I mean the demand for this knife is soooo high i am shocked that you guys didnt bring it back or even stopped producing it!!!! BRING IT BACKKKK. I am tired waiting
The sooner you bring it back, the sooner I'll buy it!!!
BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
One of the best knives Gerber has ever produced, and it's suddenly discontinued?
Please, Gerber, work out whatever snafus with Larsen, Harsey & Reeve might have led to the discontinuation, and bring back this great knife!
please bring back!!!!!!!! the L.H.R. PLEASE ... PLEASE!
I got one of these as a present to myself and I have to say wow. It is a beautiful knife with an amazing feel. The sheath is innovative and trustworthy. It's a little hard to put back in but the the draw is easy (after all, that's the action that matters most) Since it was discontinued, I'm afraid to use it since if I lost it I would be unable to get a new one. Glad I got it when I did!!
I am on my 5th deployment and have looked everywhere for this knife, as far as the UK and Slovakia even, with no luck. I've placed orders with many suppliers only to find that their websites incorrectly listed the knife as available. I need a replacement to add to my kit. I can't even find used and beat up knives. I lost my original, given to me as a gift, during my 3rd deployment. Great knife! Great tool! Bring it back!
Please start making these again! Great knives like this are few and far between.
Bring it back
Please Gerber, bring this knife back! It's one if the best you guys have ever made!
Why do you guys seem to discountinue the best knives you make? Please bring this knife back, or remodel it and bring it back. It is perfected by craftsmanship, and the quality is outstanding, please bring it back. From a Gerber fan.
I have had this knife for a good mounth now and used it for days at a time and this knife never let me down, I used it for opening tin cans and choping trees and even threw the thing and it kept going not even wrecking the tip of the blade! I would totally recommend this knife for a survival blade or bush crafting.
Great knife please bring it BACK! I MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME
I carried an LHR through my last deployment to Iraq. Definitely the best tactical knife on the market.
Started looking for this blade awhile back, and was irritated at first that Gerber had discontinued it. However, was able to find it on Amazon being sold by none other than... Gerber!!! Get it while you can, this is probably one of the best knives I've owned!
PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!
I had one and sold it to my cousin. What a mistake. What is Gerber thinking? Why on earth would Gerber discontinue their best product???
BRING IT BACK THIS INSTANCE
Boughtt one want to get one for son bring back great knife.
I WISH THAT U,,,, WOULD BRING BACK THE L.H.R. THAT MY BROTHER MAY OWN 1,,, One DAY THAT I CAN OWN TOOO,,,,,,,,,, REALLLLLLLLLY WANT U GUYS TOO,,, BACK O.K. PLEASE BRING THE L.H.R. PLEASE IN THE OF GOD.?????????BRING IT FOR ME PLEASE...... LORD GOD PLEASE....???/??
Why does Gerber always Discontinue the best knives??? Gah, first the wood handled freeman and now this? How frustrating, i really wanted to add one of these to my collection.
WHY IS THIS DISCONTINUTED
Yes great knife and sheath.
I use it as a diveknife.
So many people love this knife and so do I. Bring it back!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nothing wrong with the sheath. Just grip the knife normally and let your thumb push into the quick release tab which seperates it from the knife. Then slide the whole knife out
I bought this knife for a second tour in afghan. Feels sturdy and th sheath is very strong. I messed the sheath up trying to clean dirt out of it and lost the screws. Gerber sent me a complimentary sheath!! I have been a customer since I joined the Army in 2008 and this gesture will make me continue to by your products!
Great knife, just got it on eBay. But the sheath is a big problem. The knife itself is utterly amazing, but for 60 more I could get the trident, but its all a matter of opinion now. Still, when they have a better sheath, i will make gerber give me a new one.
I agree with AMIR the sheath needs some work. The same is happening to my knife.
The LHR is both functional and a beautiful work of art. Attached at the hip is quite intimidating to all who view, warning enough in most cases.
For the love of knives, make this available in a plain edge Gerber! I would gladly rec this product if so! Keep up the fight.
dont like the sheath, its not good for the blade, good knife. sheath 1 star, knife 5 stars
I agree with DENYS make a plain edged version please it just makes sense doesn't it? you guys are amazing.
I like the LHR a lot she feels great in the hand like it belongs there and the sheath is well thought out thanks Gerber
I beg you guys, make all of your knives in both plain and serated versions, you see wich sell better. Why you keep doing that noncense, serations have very limited range of use, and its a pain in a A** to sharpen it!!! (((
As a knife collector, i own the CRK Neil Roberts wich i consider being the nicest of the pacific/green beret series of outstanding Chris Reeve knives. Now discontined and worthing more than 2 time , i definitly prefer this Gerber LHR for its design, handling qualities, quickness, elegance of shape. Not convinced first with the sheath, its finally a really great one, very secure . As always with Gerber, innovation, attention to details and a price tag allowing the best for a knife fan : to bring and use it without fear to scrath the mirror finish of your thousand dollar custom knife ! I assume this knife will belong to the classics, as a Randall 1-7, an Al Mar sere or warrior, an applegate ou 'FS' dagger. . Superior example of modern american cutlery. Good job Gerber.
This Knife is alright for its use for military hacker, as far as edge retention its almost impossible to have it dull quickly with a grind like it has. But if it was higher quality steel the edge could be finer and maintain the same edge retention. Blade geometry makes a huge differance with the edge retention. I was kind of disappointed with how its held an edge, and not telling me the model of steel used makes me question the consistency of the steel quallity. Not seeing a familiar cmp-s30v or cpm-d2 of even a 440c throws the quality into question. yes this knife is solid yes teh sheath is nice but i would like to see it hold an edge longer with a "named" steel. i would buy this knife if i wanted to beat the crap out of a blade, not for how long it holds an edge. Military can be hard as hell on their gear so for that they have been successful
for 154 dollars the knife i great but i think that the blade should be 3 to 4 inches longer.
Just received the Gerber LHR. Incredible knife. Well-made, great balance, and strong enough to easily handle what it was designed for. The high-tech sheath is a big plus. One of the best no-nonsense combat knife/sheath combos on the planet.
This knife is truly amazing it is a beautiful work of art but is also an amzing tool.
I love this knife, its great for just about anything. Only downside is the black finish wears off, but other than that great knife.
Sweet knife. I have been a gerber fan since the 80's when i got my first silver knight. I was impessed with the balance of the blade. It's a very sexy knife. I think i will keep it.
I use this knife for hunting, and this is the first knife that can cut up a whole elk and still keep a razor sharp edge. Was definitely worth the money I paid for it!!
I have had the LHR for sometime. Carried it in Afghanistan and the shear site of it made people take notice. Perfectly balanced full tang, the handle has great grip and the sheath is super secure.
There is NO EQUAL!!
Literally, this knife was on my side as I went down due to an oil slick on a freeway on ramp and saved my side from serious road rash. At over 70mph sliding on my side this knife stayed in the sheath and was surprisingly unscathed. I will be ordering a ne
Any knife, Fixed Blades to Balisongs, if theyre made in china,You will get better use out of them as paper waights, or throwing knives that you beat the hell out of without fear of losing it or leaving it behind. InShort, if Im looking for a good quality
