In 1939 Joseph Gerber (advertising agency owner) had custom knife maker David Murphy make 24 sets of carving knife for some of his select customers. Catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch saw them and was so impressed with the quality of the knives they wanted to sell them. Thus was born Gerber Legendary Blades.

They call it the "Curve". It's a small keychain knife I know Gerber's been making as long as I've been into knives (almost 17 years now). Typically an inexpensive model, but it packs quite a few quite useful tools into that tiny frame!

I have never seen one of these. I found it in the gutter outside my work today. Anybody ever see one before?
As Cody stated above, it is a "Gerber Curve" key chain tool. SMKW has them in stock for $12.99 Item #G0206.
Being that it has a somewhat flimsy "Carabiner Clip" (China) and was found in the street, it most likely fell off the owners belt when entering/exiting his vehicle.
Pretty sure he misses it.
It's always important to know what you don't know.
