My best friend gave me a green-handled Gerber LST about 1980 which I believe is the year they came out, and it had the L.L. Bean brand on it. Designed by Pete Gerber, it was the first folding knife to have an all-plastic handle (no metal liners or bolsters). Lightest and slimmest knife I have ever owned, and I used it constantly on the job and on the trail and on the river. Had a Schrade similar but not quite as handy. Put a thumb stud on the Schrade, but the Gerber, I could pinch the blade with thumb and forefinger and push the handle away with one hand. Only fault I had with that knife, before it was stolen along with most of my others, was that it was so slim and light that I had to keep checking my pocket to make sure it was still there.
