In 1980, Pete Gerber introduced the L.S.T., the first knife to use an all-synthetic handle, revolutionizing the way the world thought about knives. L.S.T.'s are light, smooth, and tough. Each knife has a fiberglass filled nylon handle and high carbon stainless steel blades. This combination of materials makes a knife that is exceptionally durable, yet light enough to be carried anywhere. The L.S.T. is Blackie Collins original design.
