  From Darryl Bolke: "The name reflects the design. Gamboa is a town in Panama in the former U.S. Canal Zone. My mother was raised there by her Aunt and Uncle. Her Uncle was... a Canal Zone Police Officer who was stationed at the Penitentiary. Along with the prison, the Dredging Division for the Canal is there with all the unique ships used to keep the canal open. There is one road in....it is where the road ends and the wildest of wild rainforest begins. The end of civilization. It is where the Chagres River flows into the canal under a single vehicle wide railway bridge. It is from that bridge that my mom wanted her remains poured into the river (which we did in January 2002). This knife was designed for the end of the road adventures. Something with more utility use than the original HiTS, but with enough of the features of the original HiTS to serve in a protective mode in those out of the way places. Sometimes the end of the road is the rainforest, a place where only bush planes go, or a dark alley on the side of town where civilized people avoid. It is the right size to carry anywhere. It will cut food, make food, or keep you from being food."
