When Gerber debuted their line of Gator folding knives in 1991, they were voted Most Innovative Knife of the Year at the Blade Show. The handle is made of glass-filled nylon and it's covered with a rubberized alligator skin texture for a tacky, comfortable grip. The lock-back clip point blade has a fine edge and is forged from 420HC stainless steel. Sheathed in a heavy-duty nylon case, the Gator is still one of Gerber's most popular folders.
A leader is the man who has the ability to get other people to do what they don't want to do, and like it.
