Gerber LHR Combat Knife Fixed Blade Reeve and Harsey Design
Gerber Knives has produced one of the most significant new knives we have seen in quite some time- and that’s saying something! This LHR was designed by both Chris Reeve and Bill Harsey and they are two of the finest designers in the world today. The construction is all done in the USA. The knife has a massive blade and a comfortable handle. The sheath is specially engineered to be able to be accessed by the wearer of the knife and not an opponent that he may be in close wquarters fighting with. It’s a unique and top quality system and the price is amazing.

Here is the description from Gerber knives:
In the urban warfare environment, soldiers recognized the need for a close quarter combat knife. After studying and interviewing hundreds of real life hand-to-hand combat encounters, MACP Close Quarter Combat expert Matt Larsen worked with award-winning knife makers Chris Reeve and William W. Harsey Jr. to create the L.H.R. The quick-release sheath has a built-in safety release that can only release the knife by the wearer. The textured TacHide handle provides sure grip in wet conditions. Proudly made in the USA.
