I carried the original Gerber LST for almost fifteen years before I decided to upgrade to a nicer daily carry folder. It still finds it way into my pocket somedays. Enjoy it, it is a great little knife.
Blade magazine selected it as one of the most influential knives of the the last twenty five years. It was the first production knife to incorporate light weight but strong Zytel handles, eliminating the need for liners, and reducing weight. Two handle slabs, a lock bar, a couple of pins, and a blade are all there is to it. Elegant simplicity. This design had a major effect on knife design, with all the major manufacturers now taking advantage of light weight synthetic materials.
Buy it. Enjoy it
