ICAST 2019 : Gerber Fishing Knives, Pliers, and More

GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announced today that it will debut several additions to its inaugural line of Salt Rx fishing tools at the upcoming ICAST tradeshow in Orlando, FL. Gerber debuted its first saltwater tools at last year’s show, and the expansion will include additional styles of pliers and knives, including a needlenose and split ring Magniplier, a folding fillet knife, a steaking knife, and a Japanese-inspired slicer.

“Part of Gerber’s DNA is taking the common tool and elevating it,” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, senior vice president at Gerber. “We’ve spent a lot of time with saltwater anglers to understand the shortcomings of the tools they use most. Unanimously, saltwater anglers use knives and pliers day in and day out. Our additions to the saltwater line this year expand our offerings in both categories. The fillet knives and Magniplier we released last year were very popular and we’re excited to see anglers add a needle nose plier or a steaking knife to their go-to tools.”

All of the new tools will feature Gerber’s signature Salt Rx corrosion-resistant coating and materials engineered to resist the toughest environments. In addition, Gerber will release one tool, the Defender Rail Tether, in both freshwater and saltwater finishes. Explore the collection below:
