Ghostrike Fixed Blade
The Ghostrike Series Fixed Blade is an ultra-light self defense belt knife with a sheath system configurable for low profile or open carry. The modular sheath system can be worn horizontally on the belt beneath an un-tucked shirt or vertically on a belt like a traditional fixed blade knife. Simply detach the belt loops from the grommet holes and arrange them as you please.
STRENGTH AND PRECISION
Made with 420HC steel, the Ghostrike Series Fixed Blade’s black ceramic coating offers superior corrosion resistance and minimizes reflective surfaces. Its 3.3 inch fine edge drop point blade serves to slice and rip with precision.
DISCREET SERIES KNIVES ALLOW MULTIPLE CARRY OPTIONS
The compact skeletal fixed blade is sized for a subtle presence, and can be worn horizontally or vertically without making a profile against your outer clothing. The rubber over-mold handle features a diamond texture, allowing for a superior grip in critical situations. Know your local laws before you decide how to carry. The Ghostrike Series Fixed Blade knife is proudly made in Portland, OR.

This is a great knife but it dulls very quickly after you sharpen it.I think this is the only place you need to improve.I think it could be improved by adding a sharpener to the sheath, in the belt loop by the bottom screw. I feel that that is a way to sharpen it easily, But that would mean that you could only sharpen it when you have the sheath off, so another way is to put a sharpener in the sheath, like in a pampered chief knife counter sheath.
I would buy it again. I was very rough on it and the rubber at the top cracked (my fault). I sent the knife back expecting them to say "sorry there is nothing we can do", or just fix the top. What do you know 2 weeks later a brand knew knife at my door no questions asked.
KNIFE = awesome
CUSTOMER SERVACE = awesome
I cant give it enough stars.
Don't get me wrong. The sheath is great. Quiet, holds strong, and low profile.
However, the tabs that hold the knife in place have metal rivets for a strong hold and long wearing. Couple this with the soft 420hc steel and every time I draw my knife out of or into the sheath and the edge strikes one of the rivets the blade is instantly dulled.
But putting an edge on this knife is very easy. Just don't expect that edge to last.
Changing the edge angle still does not remedy this issue. The steel is just much too soft to keep a fine edge when it comes in contact with hard material such as the pins in the sheath.
You have GREAT concepts for knives and tools. The main gripe most of us knife guys have with your products is not the concept, functionality, or design of most of your products. It's the steel and it's ability to hold an edge and stand up to abuse. We will happily pay the premium for a better quality, and longer lasting edge. Because, for the most part everything but the steel is carefully and meticulously designed for ease of use, great performance and versatility.
Budget knives are great, but we want better steel.
Sincerely, a knife guy wanting to give you my money for a better product.
FOR SOME REASON IT DOSE NOT LIKE TO STAY SHARP. I LIKE THE KNIFE ITSELF. FOR A HIGH CARBON IT SHOULD NOT DULL EVERY TIME I TAKE IT OUT OF THE SHEATH. I LIKE THE SIZE AND THE GRIP. IT COULD BE THE SHEATH THAT DULLS IT EVERY TIME I TAKE IT OUT.
my knife don't cut and this is not because it has not been sharpened ,one times in a store and I have now work sharp and it dont cut again I dont know what I can do I bough my knife on amazone.it is posible its a counterfeith product?
Good knife, well balanced for throwing but needs a harder blade material
It appears to be configured for a right hand draw. Since I am left handed how does this benefit me.
I really like this knife. The blade itself is a bit small, but I realize that's because they had to make space to put two small grooves which are the snap-ins for the ambidextrous sheathe.
The sheathe is excellent. Small, thin, lightweight, and makes no noise. I found putting it horizontally on the back of my belt to be a bit too uncomfortable, and wearing a plain t-shirt it would easily pop through if I lifted my arms - so I actually put it horizontally at the front of my belt. The blade is sharp and sturdy, but I would definitely prefer a 1055 over the 420 they used. Overall, I like the feel of the knife, and the sheathe is one of the best concealed-carry sheathes I've seen.
4/5 because of blade length.
I bought this about a week ago and have carried it everywhere. It's light, and feels good in my hands. When I received it, I was the size surprised me; it was much smaller than I had expected. It's true when they say it doesn't print, I couldn't see anything in the mirror. The sheath is cool and the adjustability comes in handy, not to mention the MOLLE compatibility, I could see some good uses for that. It's very light and you'll forget its there. I own several Gerber knives and this has got to be my favorite. I own the Instant which is very durable but the blade jingles. I have pried staples with the Instant, but I wouldn't trust the blade quality of the Ghostrike like I would the Instant. The handle has good grip and does not sweat like some knives. Overall this is a good knife and I would recommend it for any who wants the weight, size, and feel of a pocket knife, but have the strength of a fixed blade.
The concept for the knife is remarkable, but just like everything it's not built perfectly. Here's my review after wearing it every day for half a year.
+ Optimal blade length, especially for Europe, fits in the legal category for EDC blades.
+ Remarkable sheath design, creative look on something not considered by multiple other brands.
+ Grippy handle, allowing it to be lashed to a stick and used as a spear, if the situation requires it.
- The belt loops on the sheath are made out of a rubber-like material, which wear out and eventually tear in about two months of everyday carry (I had custom aluminium replacements made a week after purchase, I saw it coming).
- The sheath doesn't allow paracord weaving on the handle, which takes us to the next point.
- The handle of the knife is rubberized, meaning after some use it wears off and is no longer sticky at all, requiring weaving paracord on it, but you already know that won't work if you care to use it with the sheath.
- Finally, but most importantly, the steel is not the best, it's not meant to be used on wood and heavy-duty work, but that's not what the knife is meant for anyway.
The perfect EDC knife, but only after a couple of modifications. Under everyday carry I only include paper, cardboard and rope cutting, also use as a crowbar for small covers of electronics etc., very conceptual sheath, unavailable from other brands. The only purpose of this knife for me is self-defence and minor everyday tasks.
Would I buy it again, although I doubt I'll need to? Yes, absolutely.
This knife is sweet. I holds an edge and it fits real nice on your belt or pack. 6 out of 5 stars. Ha
Just received this last week.overall,a great knife and been using it eversince.however,i wish the blade material could have been better
Nice knife great sheath and very comfortable. It was a little weird getting used to the weight and the factory edge is a bit dull but that is a easy fix. Nice knife all together
High quality knife, great low profile, and feels darn light and holds well too. Like the skeleton. Thanks again, Gerber.
Perfect horizontal sheath., especially when you have to where a suit constantly....need to be bigger, some serration......and I know bunch of us will want that in our equipment set up.
I mounted this knife sideways on a belt, and no matter how snugly I would push it in, it would eventually slide out. Now it's fallen out and I've lost it. The knife itself was great, but now I don't have it, because the sheath didn't do its job.
Bought 4 as gifts for groomsmen. We all love it. Easy to carry and well made.
Ordered four of these for me and my groomsmen. The knife is excellent quality, far better than any "gift" knife. Love that I have something to back up my pistol. I think it will work has a great utility knife too.
great size, but not sharp at all wont even cut para cord
Good looking blade but I would prefer the steel to be 9Cr18MoV though.
this blade is grate!!
Gonna be useful ... Great size , great hanlding , light , fast . ill add an inch of serration and it 'll be ready for next deployment . thanks
Nice, simple knife. I forget I'm wearing it.
It is either stamped or EDMed steel although it could be laser cut.The rubber grip is very well designed. The edge is centered nicely.
Don't stab yourself in the back while re-holstering.
Can't wait till it gets here
Looks like an awesome addition to my kit. I will most likely be purchasing soon.
I want one!
The new Ghostrike package looks very cool. To the Gerber designer......Well Done Sir.... thanks for the program, and making truly awesome tools!
