Gerber Knives website
Gerber is an iconic American company whose brand and products have global reach and relevance. For more than 70 years Gerber has provided its customers with quality, reliable and innovative products that our end-users have come to expect.
All Gerber products are designed and engineered in Portland, Oregon where many are also manufactured. However, unauthorized individuals and companies are creating and distributing counterfeit Gerber products. Counterfeit products do not meet Gerber's exacting quality and safety standards, and do not have Gerber's Full Lifetime Warranty.
Counterfeit products are visually deceptive and may fool unsuspecting consumers. This is a serious issue that impacts Gerber's customers and brand. Once identified, Gerber takes aggressive actions to shut illegal activities down and stop unsafe fake Gerber products from entering the market.
Counterfeit products are often listed on e-commerce websites including Alibaba, eBay and Amazon, and sold to unsuspecting buyers as "genuine" or "100% authentic" items at prices close to retail.
To ensure you are receiving a quality, authentic Gerber product and Gerber's Full Lifetime Warranty, always buy from an authorized Gerber retailer or directly from Gerber.Fakes Reported By Our Users:
