Moment Fixed Blade, Drop Point
When it’s time to dress your whitetail in the field, a fixed blade knife offers unmatched control, blade security and the all-around utility that hunting demands. From prepping game to setting up camp, the Moment Large Fixed Blade Knife is a utilitarian tool with a 3.63-inch fine edge drop point blade to handle tasks big and small. Add full tang construction and an ergonomic grip, and you’ve got a seriously capable knife that feels as great as it performs.
Comfortable and Balanced
The first thing you’ll notice when you handle this knife is the comfortable grip and balanced feel of its design. The ergonomic shape of its textured rubber handle is reminiscent of a familiar tool. The handle instills confidence for pushing and pulling actions, and feels secure in all conditions. A well-placed guard, thumb traction jimping and the choil speak to Gerber’s more than 60 years of crafting hunting knives. You can rest assured this tool has plenty of hands-on experience behind its feel and function.
Rises to the Occasion
No two hunting trips are the same. Each outing puts different demands on you and your equipment, your knife included. A versatile hunting blade needs to handle anticipated work like cleaning game and camp tasks, as well as the unforeseen prying and scraping duties that are sure to arise. The drop point shape allows for great control and ease of use, while its full tang design and glass bead finish are up for the unexpected demands of any hunting trip. The full-size blade is as versatile as it is stout, so you can focus on the adventure of the hunt, not whether you have the right tool for the job.
Rugged Nylon Scabbard
The Moment Fixed Blade slides easily into its nylon scabbard for safekeeping in your pack. Strap the sheath on your belt and your knife is within easy reach; there’s a metal snap closure to keep the knife securely seated where it belongs while you battle the brush to locate your game or find the perfect camp.

From the first time I held it in my hands I could tell that Gerber had really put a great deal of thought in the practical design of this knife. Excellent balance and a great grip. The blade is just the right size for a multitude of chores from field dressing to bushcraft work. The sheath does leave alot to be desired, however for $26 I am willing to make my own sheath for such an exceptional knife. I could see this knife ranking along side the Big Rock and LMF II in terms of success and popularity. It actually replaced my Prodigy as my EDC fixed blade due to the razor sharp plain edge. I realize that having a thinner blade is preferred for field dressing and hunting related chores, but if Gerber could beef up the blade thickness like the Prodigy's 3/16'' blade and make the lanyard hole wide enough for 550 paracord, they would have created a great all purpose fixed blade knife.
I recently purchased this knife as my EDC (I already have a Kabar in my bug out bag). I absolutely love this knife. The grip fits perfectly in my hand and the textured rubber greatly cut down on the usual fatigue. When it arrived, it was your typical factory "mostly sharp" knife; I ran it across my stone a few times and it's perfect now. The scabbard it came with is a little bulky but that's because it has a plastic frame inside to hold the knife snug. I removed the cross strap because I didn't like it, and with the plastic inside, the friction is enough to keep the knife in place (it's not bad at all though). Despite that though, I made myself a custom kydex scabbard and I prefer the kydex. The only complaint I have with the knife is that the choil is too small to be of any real use, but I knew that from the picture when I bought it. My brothers all love it and want one of their own (with one of my kydex sheaths). I think I know what their Christmas presents will be. Overall, it holds a fine edge through quite a bit of use and kept my hand from feeling too fatigued, I highly recommend it.
