Gator - Gut Hook, Fine Edge
Ever notice how alligators are completely indifferent to the weather? Well these prized knives are kinda the same, because they perform to their fullest whether the conditions are wet or dry. If there's a job to be done, our Gator Folders are more than up to it. But that's not just Gerber talking. Heck, when we debuted the Gator Folders back in 1991, the insightful attendees at Blade Show named our reptilian creation as the "Most Innovative Knife of the Year." And our competitors did the voting...
Acclaimed those fourteen years ago and as popular as ever today, the Gator Folder employs advanced thermoplastics with an alligator skin texture to deliver a stunningly reliable, ultimately comfortable grip. Who could have guessed that the feel of reptile scales would be so satisfying?

It is extremely comfortable in a womans hand. Reliable and compact love it. Bought as an anniversery gift for my husband but I liked it so much it was my hunting companion. I got the knife when they first came out. Sorry to say I never had to replace it. Was still using the same knife when it was stolen from my truck. That is how sturdy and well made they are that some youngster must have thought it was new. Miss baby very much feel naked without it when hinting. Thank you Getber for making such a sturdy and reliable knife that last.
This has been my go to hunting knife for a decade. It opens animals like using a zipper and has enough backbone to easily cut throug the ribs and breast plate. Easy to sharpen and takes up no space. Made in USA.
black the blade
I am all for this knife except for the fact that It has the new Gerber symbol on it. If Gerber Still made the 950 I would buy about a half dozen of them while I could.
I got this knife for christmas a couple years back and use it for hunting. My dad was cleaning out the gear this weeekend and it was in there with my gerber multi tool. i love them both and am asking for more gerber items this year. And my Bear survival knife.
This knife would make it easy to gut a fish on the fly if I got hungry and then I could stay out fishing instead of going all the way back to town to fill my belly! Me Likey!
