    Gerber's tools are so reliable that they've become the leading direct supplier of knives and multi-tools to the US Military. How's that for an endorsement?

Knives are undeniably masculine, and Portland-based Gerber has been making blades and multi-tools since the 1940s. I discovered this one at the Pop-Up Flea this weekend, and while I'm certainly not the type of guy who'd need a switchblade or hunting knife any time soon, you can't deny the giddy kid in us all who still thinks they're pretty damn cool. Dubbed the FIT Light Tool, it combines a badass appeal with a healthy dose of pragmatism. Sure, there's a serious serrated blade, but it's also got a handy 22-Lumen LED flashlight, multiple screwdrivers, scissors, tweezers and a bottle opener. So whether it's ripping through wrapping paper or popping open a winter ale, it's pretty evident that this multipurpose tool is an ideal stocking stuffer for any guy.
