Gerber Ultralight LST - Now here's a knife with some mighty impressive roots. It was brought to market back in 1980 by none other than the man whose last name goes on each of our products. Pete Gerber was the first knife creator to envision the merits of using all-synthetic materials in the handle. He and knife designer Blackie Collins aimed to deliver lightweight performance that had not been seen before in a knife this all-out rugged. The Gerber LST is the smoothest of operators. With a mechanical action that just feels good and satisfying when you open and close the blade, which happens to be made of 400 series stainless steel. But lets get back to the topic of lightweight performance. The Ultralight LST musters a mere .6 ounces on the scales. Yet, when you feel that easy grip, there's no question that Pete Gerber's big idea is one for the ages.

No clip, thumb knob, hole or even a fingernail notch so it takes two hands to open. Fairly soft blade, easy to sharpen - which is good since you may have to do it often. I've had mine years and the action is still smooth and has no play.
Buy: if you want a reliable knife for the bottom of your pocket.
Pass: if you do bigger jobs or need one hand for other things.
Wow, great little knife, so thin nice to have with me every day
