Four decades of designing tactical knives have given Gerber a wealth of knowledge regarding operators and their needs.
The Decree ties all of these lessons into a tight, effective package. The Decree features a premium S30V steel modified tanto blade. The tanto point provides superior piercing ability while the rounded bottom edge allows users to sharpen the blade while maintaining the knife’s geometry.
RAPID DEPLOYMENT FOR OPTIMUM UTILITY
Thumb studs and a finger flip tab allow the operator to rapidly deploy the Decree. The blade’s black ceramic coating provides superior corrosion resistance and minimizes reflective surfaces. Partial serrations offer additional cutting power, and the tempered steel glass breaker in the pommel allows the operator to use the knife in rescue applications. Featuring a glass-filled nylon handle, the Decree’s rubberized diamond texture provides a secure grip in all weather conditions. The Decree is proudly made in Portland, OR.
CARRY ASSURANCE WITH YOU
The Decree is built for hard labor over the long haul. Slip it into a pocket for daily access to a knife that will answer with strength and assurance when tasked. Tie the knife down using its lanyard hole for additional security.

is a hardened powder-made wear and corrosion resistant stainless steel. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. These vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. Despite some difficulties with a consistent heat-treat, knifemakers use CPM S30V because its composition makes it easier to grind than other powder steels.
CPM S30V is considered a premium grade knife steel and is largely used in higher-end production and custom knives. Some knifemakers call it "the absolute best blade steel available" and claim it might be the ultimate high-end all-around stainless steel, due to high performance coupled with easier machinability and sharpenability than the other steels in this class.
