The ever-evolving battlefield demands gear that keeps up, providing versatile and dependable tools built specifically for combat and survival situations. Gerber has been making survival knives for those who serve since 1966, rising to the challenge of honoring decades of experience while continuing to innovate. 

Gerber’s StrongArm does just that: it is a classic fixed blade built for brute strength with a revolutionary sheath system that is the first of its kind. The multi-mount, snap-together sheath is easy to use and can be mounted vertically on MOLLE, horizontally on a belt, or in traditional drop-leg fashion.

Customizable to your needs in the field, the StrongArm is the smart evolution of the classic fixed blade.  Now available with BDZ-1 steel, the StrongArm is better prepared for tasks that demand more from your blade. Due to its ability to achieve high hardness, excellent edge retention, and stain resistance, BDZ-1 is an ideal steel for utility and combat situations where your knife might take a beating.

I have a few fixed blade Gerber's from the Strong-arm and a few others . The plain edge model is awesome for any outdoor activities . I have one in the truck ,one with my duty gear and one at home . Now with the upgraded steel I'll have to grab another one . The sheath is great for different carry options . Buy one today and you won't ever go wrong .

I had to get one of these, I have a coyote fine edge Strongarm as well and love it! The blade comes sharp and the steel is so smooth. The sheath on the Strongarm is fantastic and very customization friendly. The Strongarm is easy to mount on a bag, plate carrier, or vest and the sheath is easy to draw from but has enough retention to hold the knife in upside down. Great knife!
