5 Your Title Nick - DEC 9, 2014

One of your best knife designs. I have one, and it's my favorite piece. I think this blade deserves another run.

3 Infamous for This William - NOV 29, 2014

I own several hundreds of dollars’ worth of Gerber knives. But this disappoints me. They are infamous for discontinuing top-shelf products while leaving no comparable alternative. They did the same with the BMF. During Operation Desert Shield countless servicemen wanted to deploy with a BMF in their kit. Shortly thereafter, it was gone, discontinued. Now they have done the same thing with the LHR. The only somewhat workable alternative is the Silver Trident; however, this knife is so ridiculously overpriced that many would undoubtedly choose a different brand rather than pay such a steep price.

5 mr jiri - NOV 29, 2014

Can you where I can buy it

5 Outdoors Lover Steve J. - OCT 22, 2014

5 New User Chad Westall - SEP 11, 2014

Please let me know when you bring this back. Looks like a great knife. Would order when notified.

5 Gerber Knife Owner Steve M - AUG 30, 2014

BRING BACK THIS KNIFE. Why would a company discontinue what is undoubtedly and also recognized as one of the top ten tactical knives in the world?

5 Back-country wanderer Sean - AUG 27, 2014

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.

5 Your Title Chuck M. - AUG 22, 2014

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

5 WTF?!?! Sam - AUG 16, 2014

5 Why bring it back! Jamal Jamal - FEB 21, 2014

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

Gerber pulled it off the shelves before I had a chance to buy it. Please bring it back. The sooner Gerber brings it back, the sooner I'll buy it. Maybe change the name of the knife to avoid any entanglement but please bring it back soon

5 Bring it back Dave - JAN 12, 2014

I have tried finding this knife everywhere and cannot. I'm kicking myself now for not buying it when I had the chance. Please bring this knife back I'm going crazy trying to fun this knife even used.

5 Bring it back please! Bill - JAN 10, 2014

I would like to purchase this knife so....Bring IT BACK PLEASE!!!!

5 Once a soldier, always a soldier Amanda Wilson - JAN 7, 2014

Why do companies always get rid of products that are made so well. Cars that were made in the fifties and sixties are still on the road where as newer cars last about ten years at most. The same goes for the LHR, a knife that has all the functions and the ability to withstand all kinds of treatment, For those who had the knife but lost it, getting one back is now impossible.

5 Grunt Jerry - JAN 6, 2014

I hope Gerber is smart enough to bring this knife back. And please, if you mess with the sheath keep the retention feature. The people who don't like it are not the ones whose life is on the line.

5 BRING IT BACK Michael - JAN 3, 2014


5 I want one bad! C.J. - DEC 27, 2013

Please bring back this awesome knife!

5 Military Rodger - DEC 24, 2013

Hi Gerber,

I purchased this knife when it was first released and love it.

I would like to purchase more of them for my family, but I noticed they're no longer available.

Is there a reason why?



5 I Want One!!! Robert - DEC 24, 2013

I agree with the rest, bring back the best. I've done a lot of research on quality survival knives and this is the one I want and can't find anywhere. Please bring it back. I'm ready to buy it.

5 Your Title Bret - DEC 24, 2013

5 Best knife and sheath Corey - DEC 18, 2013

This is one of the best gerber knives I own. The locking system on the sheath is awesome and the blade itself is thick, sharp, and feels perfect in your hand. But why discontinued?

5 Larsen-Harsey-Reeve Viper8866 - DEC 14, 2013

Bring it back!!!

5 Blade Smith DoinItSupreme - DEC 14, 2013

Discontinued!? The LHR is the only reason i am on this website. Bring it back and restore my faith in Gerber.

5 Best knife I own Rob - DEC 14, 2013

Took it on a deployment with me and I gotta say, this thing was everything and more. If you can find one hold on to it because you'll never find a knife like this again. Very versatile and incredibly strong.

5 MAN DANIEL E. - DEC 6, 2013

BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

5 Discontinued? Graymalkin - NOV 30, 2013

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!

5 collector and prepper bubba - NOV 26, 2013

Excellent blade! Please, bring it back!!!

5 Troop Dan - NOV 16, 2013

When are you bringing this great blade back? Soon, please! I need two!

5 Best knife by far!!! Matt - NOV 9, 2013

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!!

5 Sergeant First Class Dan C. - NOV 1, 2013

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!

5 Ground Troop Joe S. - NOV 1, 2013

Please start making these again! Great knives like this are few and far between.

5 Eric Teufelhunde - OCT 30, 2013

BRING. BACK. THIS. BLADE. (and don't go charging $150 bucks for it,...Marines are broke, yo)

5 need it!! mike - OCT 27, 2013

Bring it back

5 Collector David - SEP 15, 2013

Please Gerber, bring this knife back! It's one if the best you guys have ever made!

5 BRING IT BACK John - SEP 3, 2013

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.

5 Survivalist Spencer - SEP 3, 2013

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.

5 Christopher TEXAN - SEP 1, 2013

Great knife please bring it BACK! I MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME

5 Soldier James Johnson - AUG 28, 2013

I carried an LHR through my last deployment to Iraq. Definitely the best tactical knife on the market.

5 Great Blade Sean - AUG 26, 2013

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!

5 Human Gabe - AUG 26, 2013


5 Collector Ed - AUG 13, 2013

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???



5 customer justin - JUL 26, 2013

Boughtt one want to get one for son bring back great knife.

5 TRINITY N.C. RALPH - JUL 22, 2013


1 Bummer Bob - JUN 29, 2013

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.

5 WHY gerberdiego92 - JUN 18, 2013


5 Your Title Hans - APR 14, 2013

Yes great knife and sheath.
I use it as a diveknife.

5 BRING IT BACK!!!!!!! Specialist - MAR 30, 2013

So many people love this knife and so do I. Bring it back!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 USCG-AUX Jim - MAR 22, 2013

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

5 Perfect Combat sik7ven - MAR 19, 2013

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!

5 THE SHEATH Christian - JAN 26, 2013

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.

5 Marine Steve - DEC 26, 2012

I agree with AMIR the sheath needs some work. The same is happening to my knife.

5 Combat Art D Harry - DEC 15, 2012

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.

4 PLAIN EDGE USMarine - DEC 4, 2012

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.

3 It's very hard to insret the knife back into the sheath and it's damaging the black color amir - OCT 19, 2012

dont like the sheath, its not good for the blade, good knife. sheath 1 star, knife 5 stars

3 I Agree! straight - OCT 5, 2012

I agree with DENYS make a plain edged version please it just makes sense doesn't it? you guys are amazing.

5 DogWood 2 D. Ford - OCT 1, 2012

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

3 Plain edge please ! :'( Denys - SEP 19, 2012

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!!! (((

5 Instant classic Tanino - AUG 31, 2012

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.

3 For the ones that don't know any better. Steve S. - JUN 14, 2012

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

4 that guy this guy - MAY 13, 2012

for 154 dollars the knife i great but i think that the blade should be 3 to 4 inches longer.

5 Gerber LHR - MAR 31, 2012

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.

5 True edge, true knife Luke T. - FEB 23, 2012

This knife is truly amazing it is a beautiful work of art but is also an amzing tool.

5 Your Title Joseph Smith - JAN 25, 2012

I love this knife, its great for just about anything. Only downside is the black finish wears off, but other than that great knife.

5 Your Title josh berringer - JAN 15, 2012

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.

5 Best knife I have! David Haynes - DEC 21, 2011

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!!

5 Knife Junkie Jeff Mackens - DEC 9, 2011

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!!

5 Saved my Skin! Sean Angoco - AUG 24, 2011

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

5 I like that its a USA knife thats actually made in the USA.. I WANT THIS KNIFE!!! BUT for that kind of money, Id get a KaBar, - AUG 16, 2011

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
