If you're a fan of the classic folding hunter, you might as well step up to the caliber of the Magnum L.S.T. Jr. Its an unpretentious, get-er-done sort of field knife that lays low when you're stalking or still hunting, then stands tall when you're dressing out your buck or bull. Superior edge retention is mandatory with big game hunting. And the Magnum L.S.T. JR delivers it in a 2 3/4" blade made of 420 high carbon stainless steel. But its still fairly easy to sharpen as needed. Choose from a fine edge in black or Mossy Oak Break-Up, or a serrated version in black. Pronounced finger grips in the fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastic handle work with crisp checkering to provide a high degree of tactile dexterity and long-term comfort. After all, sometimes those trophy critters can take a while to work up.
I purchased one of these fine blades eleven years ago next month. This knife has got to be the best Gerber made to date. I have owned many before and quite a few since, yet none have stood up to the abuse and use. So if you are looking for a knife with guts to do the job no matter what I do believe you found it. Only complaint I have is no clip or sheath with the one I purchased and though light kinda bulky in jeans pocket.
bought one of these a couple of years ago...it takes and holds a fine cutting edge its light and pretty durable id give it a solid 9
