4 great knife and advice Superawesome323 - JUN 27, 2016

haven't used it yet but from a superficial standpoint it looks very nice. Ive seen alot of bad reviews but Im assuming most people who made those reviews probably did not treat the knife with as much respect as you should treat a knife. It is not the most desirable option to use a knife as a spear point, most knives this one included are designed for being used as a cutting tool. However the metal block on the butt end of the knife is designed for hammering, I really doubt that the designers were expecting you to expose it to pressures greater than can be given by hand, obviously it has a hammer, but that is just an extra tool (a Swiss army knife is still called a knife) obviously if you are going to use it for something that requires hard continously force you should not expose your knife to this abuse. in the wild a knife is a valuable tool, but tools have certain functions that they are intended for, in other words, don't try to use your nose to hear it will only fail you.

1 Carpenter Calvin - JUN 16, 2016

This knife is a piece of sh---! Great blade, NOT full tang. The waffle grip hammer head is embedded in PLASTIC. Gerber, time to get your heads out of your a$$e$ and REDESIGN this TOY before someone who trusts ypou gets seriously HURT and SUE the sh-- out of you... Get a CLUE.. This toy is worth about $2!

5 yea see - JUN 3, 2016

muy bien curaca

1 Disappointed Franky - MAY 23, 2016

The knife was not delivered sharp, bent serration and the pommel broke after first use.

3 Eeeeh Your name - MAY 22, 2016

This knife is ok...not worth $71. The fire starter broke the first day of opening, and the knife doesn't hold an edge. Even though the flint isn't good, and it doesn't keep and edge it is very durable. I have used it as a throwing knife and even when I miss and hit a rock the knife is fine. Would recommend the fine edge rather than the half and half.

2 Disappointed DP - APR 28, 2016

The freakin hammer broke off!!! why wouldn't you make it full tang. Bear, you let me down.. now i have to see about getting gerber to replace it.

1 Survival Marcelo Barbero - APR 28, 2016

The first time I used it, I hit a stone and the handle has been ruptured. I'm disappointed. I hope Gerber replace me, as they say.

5 best knife ionut - APR 21, 2016

am ales 5 stele deoarece este un cutit performant si iti este de mare folos in caz ca teai pierdut in padure, jungla, etc.

5 amazing jeff peterson - APR 9, 2016

i read heaps of reviews on these and 99% of them said they break. but these knifes are sturdy, well made things. well done Gerber!!

5 gerber great Gerber fan - MAR 15, 2016

Good knife, I've seen bad reviews but every Gerber I've had has been a keeper. This knife has done it all from just shaving sticks to batoning and cleaning wild game. Gets and keeps a decent edge. Love the fire starter it works great.

5 Best knife ever William - MAR 12, 2016


2 Good knife horrible sheath Bob - FEB 12, 2016

The knife itself has survived but the sheath only after two months has split on both sides down to the Velcro that holds it to the back half.

5 Best knife ever Eli - JAN 4, 2016

I dose not flip in when I am using it. It has a really good grip and gives me comfort. I love the knife. I would give it more stars if possibly like infinity.

5 Adventurer Philip Nelson - JAN 3, 2016

This is the best knife I have ever owned.. Many a deer has been cleaned with this blade!

1 Bad choice Alvarogcroes - DEC 13, 2015

I was depending on this knife, the tip broke off and the hammer side came off completely!!! I would never recommend this knife if it was your last choice!

5 Your title Your name - DEC 4, 2015


4 good but not the best Your name - NOV 24, 2015

this is a realy good and cool knife, but unfortunetly the rumors are thruth the pumel after using it it falls down the belcro is not strong, but after all it is a good knife and its prety practical

i recomd this for biginers who like outdoors

5 Your Title Deer Huntin' Dave - NOV 21, 2015

I have specialty knives for everything - skinning, caping, machete, folding, filet, etc... My brother in law got me this knife for Christmas 2 years ago and it was a huge eye opener. I now keep my skinning and caping knives in the backpack till after the kill - but this knife is always on my belt. I have used it from hammering down tent stakes to field dressing deer and it has worked flawlessly. Besides the blade, the best part about this knife is the non-slip rubberized grip, especially when covered in blood. They can keep the Bear Grylls endorsement - this knife is a standalone winner.

5 u u - NOV 15, 2015

best knives ever

1 Director of Art Billy Catain - NOV 11, 2015

Knife seems very sturdy and long-lasting, but the first time i used the flint it snapped off at the base. Very disappointed.

5 Love it Bradley - OCT 29, 2015

Best knife and also a little expensive but it was worth it

4 Outdoorsman Patrick - OCT 17, 2015

Two years ago I bought the Bear Gyllis Ultimate Survival Knife. It is a great tool for any outdoor activity, but the ferro stick tends to drop out if you have it used it frequently. The design engineers at Gerber now offer a better knife, their Gyllis Pro Ultimate Survival knife. Check out the specs and compare the two me, you will buy the Pro even though it is twice the cost. For the money, Gerber makes the absolute best survival knives--better than Bench made and Becker which are very expensive knives.

5 Excellent Pelandok Josh - SEP 30, 2015

I am a scout and i say this knife comes in handy in all scouting situation, be it pioneering or backwoodsman. If only gerber could design a jack knife just like this, that will be excellent

1 Your Title Your name - SEP 15, 2015

my hammer broke of and the blade i´nt sharp at all after under ½ a year of use. just used it on wood. dont know if there was a fail on my knife

5 Bear Grylls Mohammed Ali SETHI - SEP 10, 2015

Awesome sauce!!

5 fantastic esmiknife - SEP 8, 2015

this knife has been perfect for everything i've ever asked of it. I've used it to start fires, filet fish, for self defense, and even to split wood. There's nothing this knife can not do.

4 Mr. Parker Fillmore - SEP 6, 2015

Great knife for many purposes. Great feel and balance. Very comfortable and strongly built. Only complaint is the holding mechanism for the fire starter. Lost mine from scabbard on hunting trip and now having difficulty in finding a replacement to fit.

5 knife naeem - AUG 17, 2015

i like this knife so much i want it because i love it can u deliver it to pakistan

5 OUTSTANDING eddie - AUG 14, 2015

It is light and even though it is small it cuts better than some machetes. I cut down bamboo for huts and things and my machete was slower and it started breaking but my b.g. knife was faster and didn't have a single chip in it. The only problem is it is kind of hard to sharpen even if you have a good stone. All you need in a survival situation is this, it comes with flint and a sharpening stone.

5 Hunter Walker - AUG 12, 2015

Love the knife, of all the knees in my possession it is probably my favorite, only wish there was a version without the Orange trim, all grey or black.

5 Truly the best knife Joshua - JUL 28, 2015

This is the best knife. It has all the tools you would need if you ever found yourself in a life or death situation. The blade and knife have a very nice feel and balance it doesnt feel cheap or to heavy. If i ever had too i would have no problem trusting my life to this knife. Thanks gerber for making a great knife.

5 dte dte - JUL 19, 2015

got this knife as a gift. I carry it every day in my day bag/emergency bag.
First thing I did was attach whistle lanyard to the fire starter and run the string under the velcro strap to secure it.
I would be alright w/ this knife in an emergency situation.

2 Engineer Your name - JUL 18, 2015

First, the material is not the best. Actually, is a pretty weak material, I've seen better on kitchen knives.
Second, the blade ain't going all the way trough the handle, there are 2 pieces. Mine just broke at the joint...

4 Great knife, fire starter broke. Lance - JUL 13, 2015

Knife is a Gerber, you won't be disappointed. The sheath is great, but the fire starter broke easily at the base. Still able to use the broken starter. With the exception of the starter, this thing is great.

5 best bobby - JUN 30, 2015

its zeeeeeee best ever!!!

5 awsome awsome dude - JUN 13, 2015

this is an amazing gift, anyone who says they don't what it are totally BSing!

5 Tim Tim - MAY 19, 2015

Excellent knife but first time out hunting just walking up river and hoping over rocks and the flint fell out.but overall well weighted and sharpe knife.

3 obsidian - MAY 18, 2015

The knife itself is an excellent tool.
The sheath is the weakest part, my grandson's sheath broke after ten months. First at the throat then the striker holder broke out leaving a hole in the sheath.
The striker needs a better more reliable means of retention or it will fall out.

3 Mildly disappointed Grant - APR 18, 2015

just picked one up. Nice grip, sheath and I like the rope cutter on the blade. Clip that holds knife into sheath is plastic though and broke very quickly.

Don't think I would buy this again unless the clip were improved.

5 nice samuel - APR 13, 2015

ya I bought this at a walmart for like 60 bucks and It has served me well.

4 Your Title Rooslan - APR 13, 2015

Grabbed my BG survival and folding knife. Both are outstanding.used them during my deer hunting trip for the first time. Super sharp............hard blade. Good flint. Just love it.

4 Awesome knife Allen - FEB 27, 2015

Got this knife for Christmas and tested it when I went camping and it stood all my tests but I lost the fire starter this is a good knife and highly recomend it

5 Cool knife Bob - FEB 23, 2015

This knife is pretty epic. Personally I think a serrated knife is better that a fine knife. INFACT, Bear actually uses this knife instead of his ultra pro fine knife on TV. This is his best knife for cutting through small bits of wood, rope ect.....

I would personally recommend on getting this knife. Oh and by the way this is Gerbers best knife, BY FAR!!!!!!!

5 Saudi Arabia Zolo - FEB 7, 2015

This knife is must have companion. Has its features that are dependable. Sturdy construction, good grip. Hammering using its pommel is good for cracking.
I like desert camping alot. It helps to have a dependable knife for all purpose use.
The sheath is heavy duty.
Highly recommended knife

5 Explorer Glen - FEB 1, 2015

My daughter bought me this for Christmas. Very nice.

4 A great surprise. . Travis - JAN 22, 2015

I was give the knife as a Christmas present. I thought it was just a celebrity endorsement. .. but I am surprised. .i used it on my Lobster boat at the hunting camp.. and use it on my atv... great knife gerber

5 great knive your name - JAN 21, 2015

5 Your Title Adam - DEC 30, 2014

Great knife. Would recommend to all.

5 Good knife Matteo - DEC 30, 2014

My Brother broked the Holding of the knife but the knife is a very good knife

5 Flint??? Christian - DEC 29, 2014

Where is the flint????

5 Best knife Bryce - DEC 28, 2014

It's the perfect knife with a fire starter and a sharpener I recommend this to everybody that spends time in the outdoors

5 Great knife Rick - DEC 15, 2014

This knife works very well, it can start a fire with the flint which I find extremely useful. Great blade, grip, and sheath.

4 Your Title Your name - DEC 15, 2014

A perfect knife, heavy, powerful and durable. would absolutely recommend to all looking for a good quality survival knife.
once again i also believe there is too much serration and the whistle is of rather poor quality. but this is still an incredibly good knife.

4 Your Title Frank - DEC 9, 2014

Great knife the only reason i give four star is because there's to much serration

5 Great knife Mitchell keeline - DEC 3, 2014

I am a Boy Scout and find this knife to be very useful when I go backpacking the serrated edge is a great addition to the knife

4 Nice SAM - NOV 29, 2014

Loved the knife and the sheath features. my only complaint is that the flint fell out of mine. would've been an easy fix if they just flipped the holster.

5 Your Title Brian - NOV 28, 2014

the moment I got the I didn't think I would need the knife but I put it into my survival pack and lets just say if it wasn't for this knife I wouldn't be here and I wouldn't change a thing with it but to add a lanyard that isn't so short and is tied vs how it is on the whistle. for what I did was take the draw string out of my bag and used it to turn the knife into a spear for fishing.

4 BG survival knife TRAV - NOV 21, 2014

got mine a year ago bloody great gets the job done fast
but put fire rod not upside down it always comes out it dumb
but its a really awesome knife

4 owner wandelent7 - NOV 4, 2014

Put the fire starter upright instead of upside down. I lost mine. Other than that awesome knife.

4 Couple of additions Sabrina - OCT 16, 2014

This is an amazing knife. Very good design, well thought out, excellent quality, great features. I own 2 and have bought it for friends.

I would add 2 things to push up the survival-ness of this knife.

1.) Make the blade shiny so you can use it as a reflective surface to signal planes. (However, the dark gray stainless steel looks more bad ass to me. But who cares about looking bad ass when you're lost in the woods trying to survive.)

2.) I'd make the string that's attached to the whistle a paracord lanyard that can detach. It's an extremely useful item.

That's all. Still, really great knife. I love mine.

5 greetings Eufracio Hector A. Bayot IV - OCT 15, 2014

Nice knives.. I ordered one from my friend in US.. can't wait to have it next year.. please send one for free..haha

5 OutBack Bushman James - OCT 14, 2014

Absolutely astounding knife! All the features people look for in a knife can be found right here, the pummel does and astounding job and the fire starter is an awesome addition, this knife is Deffinatly in my top rated outdoor knifes!

5 Love it! Eric - OCT 13, 2014

What can I say? I own two of these knifes. I also picked up a couple of extra fire starters. Excellent service. Ordered the extra fire starters off the website.
Went camping three times in the past month. There is nothing like using good tinder with this knife. It throws brilliant hot sparks every time.

5 amazing knife Ty - OCT 10, 2014

I just got it today and it can do anything it was outstanding. I really like the feature bear did were you could cover the blade to hammer something. I also tried lashing it to a spear and that worked perfect. it could use a couple other features like a sharpener on the pro for beginners. Other than that it was a awesome knife :)

5 Human being Kevin Houli - OCT 10, 2014

My wife and sons presented this knife to me last Xmas and it has surpassed all expectations. I wasn't keen on the Bear Grylls branding at first due to typical profit hoarding, but the knife is well engineered. I recommend to anyone who's looking for a knife that can handle all outdoor duties.

4 ok knife owner - SEP 28, 2014

Knife is great but the sheath is not very good it brock in two places

4 Great knife, terrible service Gaetan - SEP 12, 2014

This knife is pretty awesome. About 2 years ago I used mine as a spear (latched onto a 1m50 thick stick). After about what must have been 15 throws, the top (about 1cm) of the blade broke off. I've sent more than 20 mails to Gerber about this (incl pictures) and have NEVER received a single response from them. A blacksmith friend of mine recently took a look at the knife and noticed there were some serious issues with the purity of the metal right at the breaking point.

Yes I'm from Europe, but does this mean I shouldn't get any after-sales service for the item I bought (online)?!

5 best knife ever sam - SEP 5, 2014

I think this knife is the best me and my Friend used for taking down SmaLl tree's and it work :-) .

5 woooooow Gabriel - AUG 25, 2014

wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow this knife is awesome

5 Great knife Knifeconneisuer - AUG 22, 2014

This knife has everything! From the fire starter, diamond sharpener, and the awesomeness of everything about it. I ordered this knife from Amazon for 34.99 plus tax, but its prime, so free shipping and free two day shipping. I have owned a lot of knives, and this is the best in my collection. If you have any questions about Gerber knives, go to and ask.


4 good knife but kyle - AUG 21, 2014

i like everything about the knife but the fire striker on the back of the knife doesnt seem to make hot enough sparks for anything to catch.

5 a great knife liam - AUG 9, 2014

it is a good knife use it everyday

5 Brilliant johnrambo - AUG 9, 2014

big bear baby bear thumbs up really good knife :] appreciate a good knife ;]

1 This Knife is Junk!! SB - AUG 4, 2014

The blade is ok but the back of the knife is shit they say that the back can be used to bang things when i tried it broke out thus concluding this knife is junk!!

5 military yung - JUL 14, 2014

Got one from PX, I am station in Guam..lotta coconut tree out here that`s all I am using this knive to cut tough coconut :)

5 great knife Doug - JUL 10, 2014

i bought this knife maybe about a month ago and it was used for basic stuff until i went camping. the knife worked great for camping. i used the hammer pommel to stake my tent and started the fire every night with the fire starter. I even was able to blaze a okay path through some thick woods with it. all in all great buy.

5 The One & Only Jack Dittman - JUL 10, 2014

This unit is hands down the best knife purchase I ever made, let alone, my "go to" choice for any outdoor/survival adventure. If I could only take one 1 item into a survival scenario, this would be it. I added 5-6 feet of para-cord (around the sheath) and it made an already excellent tool...perfection! I have yet to find a challenge I could not tackle while carrying this knife. The one feature that does not get the credit it deserves is the 2 holes at the top of the handle. It allows you to easily, yet securely, transform this bad-ass knife into a even more bad-ass spear. All in all i would recommend it to anyone and everyone (I have already "sold" 3 of my friends on it). This knife also inspired me to purchase the entire bear grylls line up.

5 Outdoor Survival Teacher/ Trainer Andrew Wilson - JUL 7, 2014

I have owned MANY different "so called" survival knifes. NOTHING and I say again NOTHING will stand up to the abuse, and testing that I put "Bear Grylls Fixed Blade Knife" The other ones say they will survive.. NOT TRUE. This is still the same knife I have had for the past 1 1/2 years. I have started fires with it, split small tree branches down the middle, lite hundreds of fires using the fire stick (DONT USE THE BLADE SIDE) never failed me yet!!!
I recommend this to ANYONE who is outdoors, or the backwoods person.
Thank you

5 Outdoorsman Phillip Hawkins - JUL 6, 2014

When you think of survival knives, you think of those cheesy, cheap knives with the compass in the handle. However, this is a quality knife that any outdoorsman would use daily. Every feature has thought out and is very practical. Definitely a knife to own.

5 Mr Arash - JUL 5, 2014

I've bought one. How can I check it to ensure it's not a fake one?

5 Survivalist Tyler - JUL 3, 2014

Great knife for the up - and - coming survivalist. Knife, Saw, Fire Starter, Emergency Whistle are just a few of obvious uses for the knife.

5 Great Buy Mitchell - JUN 27, 2014

I love this knife. It is replacing or maybe I should say living beside my Ontario AF survival knife in my BOB. The feel of the knife is great. Well balanced and just "feels" good in your hand. The sheath is a 4x4 and the diamond sharpener is perfectly placed. With a whistle, fire starter and checkered pommel this "tool" will be with me at all times. Razor sharp OOB. I havent field tested yet but plan to this weekend. I have always been a fan of Gerber and they did not let me down here. Definitely would buy again. Thanks for a great product Gerber.

5 Super knife Noah Prickett - JUN 18, 2014

Great knife, very useful. I recommend taking the whistle off the hilt, and putting it on the ferrocerium rod.

1 Waste of money Fred - JUN 17, 2014

This knife is not sharp. Has very poor QC.

2 not great all right - JUN 16, 2014

This is not a durable survival knife. The blade is weak and does not hold an edge well. It is also very difficult to sharpen. The flint rod is as good as any flint you could buy in a store, lasts fairly long, and is a decent size. But recently i discovered the flint rod fell out of the sheath while fishing up in the mountains. the sharpener isn't best quality, but it gets the job done. I love the Gerber brand, and am a fan of Bear Grylls, but this knife was a disappointment. I am going to try the ultimate pro knife though hoping for it to be better than this knife.

5 THE BEST D.A - JUN 15, 2014

it is the most icredable knife i have ever seen!!!!!

5 knife bob - JUN 6, 2014

it is very sturdy and last very long it works for lots of things

4 Your Title Ethan - MAY 30, 2014

Okay. So this knife is great!! But when I went to buy it one major problem. This thing is HUGE. Now I know that its a survival knife and it's supposed to be bit this thing is MASSIVE.... The picture does not tell you ANYTHING. I'm really not trying to give it a bad review but wow... Gerber and Bear Grylls really have made a great knife. I have the Folding Scout Knife and it's the perfect size. I wanted one a tad bit bigger and with a sheath + fire starter. This looked like a good one. But wow. I'm really sorry guys... This IS a good knife.

2 Jacksonville Jordan - MAY 22, 2014

Just purchased the knife this week. Was eager to try out the fire starter feature. On the 4th strike, *snap*! Fire starter broke right at the base. Do not buy for its features. Jury is still out on the blade itself.

4 Workhouse Camp Knife ADV - MAY 20, 2014

First off, overall it's a decent workhorse of a knife...I would give it a 3.8 star rating if I could.

I'm a very avid camper, hiker and adventurer. I like good tools and tools that are reliable. The pros for this knife are that it does work well under stress. I've chopped logs for firewood, cut 2"-3" branches, used it to clean fish, used the firestarter and keep it as my primary survival tool. The blade does stay sharp and I don't have sharpen it often. Bottom line, it get's the job done.

Now for the cons:
• I have broken off one of the serrations - probably from hacking firewood. Not a huge deal to me but shows the overall quality of the knife.
• More of a concern, I noticed that I did put a minor "bend" in the blade. However I was able straighten it out simply by sharpening the blade.

I would recommend the knife to others, though time will continue to tell how much punishment the knife can actually take.

4 Lady w/ a big knife collection. Cindy Eidson - MAY 18, 2014

This a good knife if you are looking for a beginners survival knife. I purchased two of these for my tweens. They are just the right size for women and young men. Overall this is a good knife with some bells and whistles. I have not yet had a failure in the pommel. The fire starter is of good quality and the whistle is nice and loud. I would not say that this is an ultimate blade though.

1 Fire Capt. 1fine59 - MAY 5, 2014

Is this product & all your others made in America ? and do the knives say "made in America on them ?


5 My first Gerber knife. 33fastcar - MAY 5, 2014

This is the first Gerber knife Ive ever owned and Im 46 this year. I never looked at Gerber knives until I stumbled on the Bear Grylls line a couple months ago. The Ultimate Survival Knife really cought my eye. It looks great and it feels like the handle was made just for me.I liked this knife so much I bought a second knife so I could have both blade designs. Since then Ive purchased a few more Bear Grylls Gerber knives. I am very happy with every one. Two Ultimate Survival Knives, compact parang & fixed blade knives, Scout knives-with sheath & with out (plain scout) and compact scout. These are now my everyday knives. They hold an edge longer than all the rest. This knife will Not let you down in the field.

5 Your Title dancarvalho - APR 27, 2014

5 getting it hwnwnsi - APR 24, 2014

i am ordering it today hope its grate

4 USMC serveORsurvive? - APR 23, 2014

Great knife but could be better with a built in compass on the sheath. just a thought

1 The not-so-ultimate Jes - APR 22, 2014

This knife looks great and high tech, has lots of little extras which are handy, and is being marketed as the ultimate survival knife, so whats not to like?
Well, I will only get a knife with a full tang, for obvious reasons, and it says this knife has such a tang, thing is it is FLOATING in the handle- nothing holding it in place, offers zero structural support. I found this out straight out of the box, during my first go over I simply tried hitting the pommel on my floor, which it seems to be designed to do, and it practically EXPLODED, I can now see straight up into the useless, hollow, handle.
THIS KNIFE IS A GOOD LOOKING WASTE OF MONEY. Buy something good, not this, because it don't matter how good it looks when its sitting in the landfill.

5 Awesome CHP - APR 14, 2014

I got this knife this weekend and went straight camping with it. First I used it to baton some wood for a fire. It work great for for the smaller pieces but anything over about 3" was difficult, but that could have been my fault also. The cheesy looking fire starter had me worried, but boy was I proven wrong. Second drag across the rod (first to remove coating) threw amazing sparks about like a Roman candle! I am very pleased with this knife.

4 Your Title CJ - APR 3, 2014

Super impressed with the knife! Affordable, full tang construction, rubberized grip and the striking surface at the butt are strokes of genius! Great job to the team at Gerber for the knife design! The sheath is well thought out and the integrated fire starter, sharpener and pouch for the survival priority guide are smart. The durability of the sheath needs an upgrade though! I've only taken the knife with me once on a fishing trip, but the sheath is already splitting at the side seams on each side of the opening where the blade slides in, and the loop on the nylon backing on the knife point end split its stitching. With a few durability upgrades to the sheath, this knife package would be a 5!!

5 Camper/ranch user GTucker - MAR 23, 2014

Great knife, seems solid and very durable!

5 there's no words trott205 - MAR 21, 2014

It's now the scond year that I have it and I can say you that knife is is reeeealy hard. I go to the scout with it and I never saw a sing of problem an exellent knife for the price is the best !

5 Best fixed blade in my collection Adam - MAR 19, 2014

This truly is and Ultimate knife! I've done almost every thing you can think of to it. I've smashed cinder blocks with the spine of the blade. I've used the pummel a lot. I used it to fix a creaky floor board! A really awesome knife and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality fixed blade knife for a low cost.

5 Great knife Coco Alex - MAR 17, 2014

I bought one of these, and it's fascinating...
I took it on my every trip. Congrats from Romania Europe.

5 Great Richard D - MAR 13, 2014

This knife is a great, all-around, useful knife. It is sharp and durable. It also has a very nice sheath that keeps the knife from falling out.

5 Awesome Nathan - MAR 7, 2014

I've had mine for about 2 years now and during that hole 2 year the blade was AMAZING i could use this knife in almost every situation i could possibly need it for
Ex: self-Defense, Survival and bush crafting
and thats just to name a few. The only thing i could find bad about the knife is that today i was using it to cut some wood and accidentally hit some metal ( I think it was a screw ) and now my blade has a small crack in it :( but again that was kinda my I'm sad, but definitely looking to invest in another one !

To sum it all up: VERY DURABLE KNIFE

2 hunter carl - MAR 4, 2014

was not impressed with the sheath on this knife as it only works well when hanging on the left side of the body when its on the right side any branches that rub against the sheath pulls the velcro open

5 Amazing design and durability John - FEB 12, 2014

I have used this knife on many wilderness survival and camping expeditions and it never let me down. I can truly view and appreciate the features that this knife has, having used this knife a lot. It is light weight in my opinion for such a strong and durable knife. I could honestly go on and on about every single well thought out feature on this knife, but I think it's best if you go out and get yourself one and find out for yourself.

5 AWESOME Matt - FEB 9, 2014

This is the best Bear Grylls product yet!!!

5 Freakin Awesome! Matt - FEB 8, 2014

I love all of Bear Grylls products and TV shows, but this is the best knife I have ever owned!!! GOOD JOB GERBER!

5 perfect jeremie - FEB 6, 2014

I have this knife until 2 years almost and it's impossible to destroy ! execpted the fact that the firestell is going fast it's an amazing tool but I don't know if it can rust
so perfect !

5 outdoorsman outdoorsman - JAN 28, 2014

5 camper brilliant knife - JAN 26, 2014

5 BV ENTERPRISES Buddy Vasquez - JAN 24, 2014

The Bear Grylls Ultimate Fixed Blade Knife works AMAZINGLY!!! The flit work just fine ant its really great for.. almost everything!

5 Survival Instructor C Funk - JAN 24, 2014

Had the knife for years, no problems. It's been in and out of salt water catching me dinners for years, kept me warm and def has miles on the blade. Never used the whistle though, but all in all, a great knife! I look forward to using and abusing Gerber for years to come!

5 good mich - JAN 24, 2014

is good i buy it

1 Bear crap Ryan - JAN 23, 2014

terrible handle not grippe and the blade always runs dull which is bad

5 hiker paraframe - JAN 23, 2014

even though i don't get stranded in the woods i still use this knife when i go camping,hiking, and even sometimes in the yard and i think this knife is one of the best knives in my collection and i have had this knife sense they first came out and i love it. it just speaks for itself.

4 Your Title frostytsnowman - JAN 23, 2014

I just got this knife today and have been looking it over. As a survivalist a 15 year combat veteran, I really wouldn't call this a survival knife. the blade is very strong and durable, the fire-starter is a nice touch, but I would use it more for tactical than survival. A survival knife should be made of polished stainless steel so you can use it as a reflective signaling item, not have a matte grey non-reflective painted surface.
But a very good knife by all means.

5 Old Soldier Serge - JAN 22, 2014

Simply, a fantastic knife. Great feel, extremely sharp, well designed. I just live it.

5 Pro Camper MarineBoyVT - JAN 21, 2014

You can buy attachments and get more flints

5 great knife michaeltravis84 - JAN 20, 2014

the knife was sharp right out of the box I could shave with it so I don't know y people r saying its not sharp it stays sharp if u know how to sharpen it the right way the fire starter does were down fast but u can get a replacement for $5 buck not that much I use mine all most every day a lot when my boys not in school we camp every chance we get and that's a lot they all so have 1 also and no problems with it the case it as good as the knife the whistle works great when we r hunting and its time to go to base camp I blow on the whistle and we can here it a long ways off so they know its time to go to base camp but they also know how to use a map good thing to teach all kids how camp or hunt we love r knives and plane on buys a couple of them

5 CPT. CPT. SEPULVEDA - JAN 18, 2014

Best knife ive owned overall this will help you in the long run

5 bear grylls ultimate fixed blade knife michaeltravis84 - JAN 14, 2014

I have 1 of these knifes and I would not trade it for two any other type knives I love it fire starter works great the knife holds edge very nice stays sharp long lasting sharpener if u know how to use it same as the flint

5 Your Title Gary Shell - JAN 7, 2014

Awesome knife!. Really like the accessories and sheath too! Would have been nice to have the blade angle etc. on the box for sharpening purposes.

5 Great Matt - JAN 4, 2014

I purchased the knife yesterday and i must confess I have been wearing it around the house on my belt. All of the features that it comes with are great

5 the first knife you should buy GS Prepared - DEC 30, 2013

this is should the first knife for your prep.

5 Amazing Cheese - DEC 29, 2013

I really enjoy this knife it is awesome it slices through a lot really well, and it is nice to also have the serration.

5 Stoked GREG - DEC 24, 2013

Just Picked this knife up wasn't sure who Bear Grylls was till my wife told me. this knife sheath combo comes with some great features Ever bit of which is well crafted and thought out as you would expect nothing less of gerber.

5 cm evankibler - DEC 22, 2013

they are grate

5 SSG vorndamr - DEC 20, 2013

Nice heavy knife for outdoor survival situations. Good sheath. Fire starter works great too. For the price, this is one knife you want to carry with you. It is just the right size so that you do not draw unwanted attention to yourself. Always a part of my packout.

5 U.S. Air Force special forces Deaudre Marshall - DEC 15, 2013

I have had slot of fixed blades over the years, but this is the best by fare. The knife is an all in one survival tool that allows me to lesson the amount of gear that I need to carry. I LOVE IT!!!

3 Good Emory - DEC 12, 2013

The knife is great. My sister dropped the sheath and the part that says "Gerber" , the part that locks the knife in, and it broke. The flint did too, which is predictable and ok. I ordered a nylon sheath, but the knife is Great!

5 kamper mladen - DEC 4, 2013

wery good as j can see, wery jusful

5 pro camper Arlen - NOV 26, 2013

best investment I have ever made. Awesomely durable and sharp knife. Cuts just about anything from dry branches to wet ones (exactly where the serrated edges come in handy) Fire starter is just as great makes you feel like a real survivorest when you start the campfire with it. Strap it on with your belt and carry it with everywhere. one down part is when you run out of flint

5 great customer service Matthew - NOV 18, 2013

I bought this knife a wile ago and found the sheath broken. I sent them a email Then sent it away. With no questions asked 4 days later a brand knew sheath with a Flint (not asked for). I recommend this company however I don't like the made in china tag on the sheath.

5 Just Awesome Chris - NOV 14, 2013

Best knife out there for the money. I love this one and the compact fixed blade so much that I even occasionally use them while cooking!

5 good knife Lumber jack - NOV 12, 2013

good knife But the whistle gets in the way when hammering and falls off. However it can be fixed with some gutted para cord. If you want to buy this knife i recommend the fine edged knife. razor sharp.

5 assistant scout master lucas - OCT 21, 2013

i bought one of these a little more than a year ago. i use it on every camp out for just about everything. i have even used it as a hatched, and the pommel as a hammer before. it is a quality blade made of great steel. if you are not used to sharpening a high carbon steel blade like this then you might find it cumbersome.
overall i would recommend this knife to any outdoors-men who needs a versatile fixed blade knife.

4 Great knife paccordpro - OCT 20, 2013

this knife is awesome. I have had it for about two years and it is still holding up very nicely.
the fire steel and striker notch works well and the sheath holds the knife securely. I love this knife and would buy another one in the very unlikely event that it broke.

5 Mc Reea Collin - OCT 18, 2013

Greetings. I've tried a knife in real conditions on one training with the Army Special Forces. The knife is good, quality is good and the functionality is at a high level. I as a doctor in the Croatian special forces, I was pleased. This knife has become an indispensable tool in my backpack for first aid.

5 Retired Military vorndamr - OCT 16, 2013

lot of stuff in a small package. Knife fits well in the hand with limited slippage. Etra stuff not just slung on the sheath, but placed out of the way and fasten down tight. I would recommend this knife for any outdoor usage.

5 Kennedy Austin - OCT 13, 2013

This knife is an incredible knife. I was really surprised at how well this knife held up at cutting, slicing, starting fires, held an edge, and how comfortable it felt in my hand. I have the serrated edge version of the knife and I absolutely live this knife. My pomel has held up and hasn't cracked or anything like that. For $50 bucks this isn't a bad knife for me it is a great knife. Defiantly recomend it. Keep up the good work gerber.

4 Great knife but elusive fire starter Joe - OCT 11, 2013

Fire starter will not stay in sheath
Knife awesome, esp for price

5 The Scout Fan - OCT 10, 2013

Amazing quality really useful for scouts recommended it to my whole troop and they are all going to get one as well. Great knife the serrated half useful but it was clever not to be full length. Pommel not amazing but still good fire lighter really useful.

5 hands down LB - OCT 10, 2013

This is without a doubt the very best functional knife I have owned so far. Heavy enough to chop stuff, grip is awesome and I was surprised to see how sharp it was when I opened the package. The sheath fits nicely on my backpack but the whistle has to go - gets in the way too much so it will probably end up on the sheath itself.

5 Your Title Your name - OCT 9, 2013

amazing knife really useful

4 surviver logan - OCT 8, 2013

I got this knife about a year or so ago, and it has served me well. I love the grip and ergonomics and the blade shape. The only things I don't like about this knife is that over time the Velcro started to wear out. The friction lock retention system is wearing out but still holds the knife. After a few or so months the sharpener quit working and the pommel slightly loosened up but is still working just fine. Whistle and Ferrocerium rod works awesome. GERBER please start making all your knives and gear in the U.S.A!!!!!!!!!!!!

4 Strong. Stephen - OCT 6, 2013

This is a good strong but they're only two problems the sheath is a breaks easily and it's really hard to get sharp Other than that it's a great knife.

5 Great survival knife Alfred - OCT 5, 2013

I purchased this knife about a year ago, and it is still looking good! I have cut wood with this and cleared some brush and it is still alright. Only problem with this is the sheath. The first time you lock in the knife it is super solid but after awhile you need no effort to put it in and the knife would fall out if it wasn't for the Velcro strap by the handle. Otherwise It is a great knife for the money and it holds up good

5 :-) jesus1234 - SEP 27, 2013

i have no word to say this is the best knife

5 Mountaineer Zvon - SEP 24, 2013

I am from Croatia, and I have several different types of knives for my mountaineering, but this one comply all my needs. 5 stars

5 Knife Matthew - SEP 22, 2013

It's really cool knife, but the paint is very cheap i think. If you ask me, this knife deserves 5 stars. Paint is not the problem anyway. The whistle is a good bonus. The firestarter is nice, but i don't like the sharpener on the back.

5 Safety and Security/ occasional hunter Corwin Willcott - SEP 14, 2013

Purchased this unit, the clip locking piece got damaged. called customer service and they sent out a replacement sheath. Top notch quality with A+ customer service. Thanks very much.

5 I am a fan vasileboeriu - SEP 2, 2013

I got this for 50$ brand new and I must say that I am very impressed.
Fells great in my hand, it is kinda heavy, serrated edge was very sharp but the smooth edge WAS NOT. Field sharpener is not really a hit for me. I will take it to a professional to make it razor sharp.

I don't think that you will use it for something else that beating the hell out of it.

This is like a POWER TOOL in the world of ordinary knifes.

5 Awsome Knife Bear Beck Granger - AUG 31, 2013

I will never have to change knifes ever again during scouts

5 Hiker Rob - AUG 28, 2013

Received my second knife today. I was skeptic about ordering my first one but my wife wanted one for her Disaster Kit. I have to say that I'm impressed. It's a solid knife and sharp as can be. The sheath holds the knife securely in place. The fire striker and magnesium work extremely well. I used it to light my ultralight camp stove with no problem. The whistle is a nice bonus. All in all, I would give this 5 stars for quality, usefulness and overall bad-assery.

4 Need a title P. - AUG 26, 2013

Reasonable price, reasonable quality.
Also tested the pommel on a post-2011 model (not the incipient, the problematic model) and I was satisfied about the resistance. Although I do not recommend this pommel for smashing rocks or hitting other blades. To use only in emergency situations – otherwise a simple stick can be used as hammer. Also tested the blade by throwing at distance, in hard wood, but no defections neither at the pommel, neither at the blade. After the testing the coating is nearly off of the blade, but I think is not a problem.
4 stars.


Well built. Good knife.

3 ultimate knife HK - AUG 24, 2013

It is a fine knife indeed but has one flaw based on my experience: the small plastic [orange] pocket for survival suggestions is UPSIDE DOWN. When the weather is wet, water gets into this pocket and subsequently destroys the paper with instructions.
Also not a full tang blade; a big disappointment for me.

3 decent survivorboy - AUG 23, 2013

good starting knife has alot of pottental.

I dont like the sarretions and think fine edge will be better.

get the bk2 or a kabar if your going to want a knife thats going to last you more than a week.

But this knife exsels at being used in a short term emergensy kit.

2 Not very pleased. Austin R - AUG 20, 2013

This knife seemed to work well with cutting, and hacking, and slicing. As far as that goes, it did its job well.

However, when I bought the knife. I had expected it to be a full tang blade(like the new ultimate pro), when it wasn't. I was VERY disappointed to see this. The second or third time I used the pommel, it broke sideways out of the thin and rather flimsy plastic holding it. Not very pleased.

WITH THAT BEING SAID, it could have just been a mishap in construction of that particular knife. If so, then I'd hope that gerber would be willing to replace/refund the knife for me. (Let it be noted that I have yet to try this.)

4 Don't need a Title MIO - AUG 15, 2013

4.5 stars
I got this knife a while back for Fathers Day and ran it thru the paces. If it wasn't for the upside down hanging firesteel It would be a 5 star. I tied paracord to it to keep from losing it.
I used it as a hammer on some nails in boards, I tied it to a pole for spear and tossed it at the archery target, I cut a small tree in half beating the back of the blade with a rock and so forth. It passed and went in the bag where it has gone thru several courses with me and skinned several deer, an antelope and a hog now. This thing rocks and is a solid knife.
My Son now owns one too with similar results.
Great Job!

1 Better Michael - AUG 13, 2013

I think swiss knives are better.They have more options and they are smaller.

4 Your Title Nick - AUG 12, 2013

I bought two of these knives. One for me and one for my friend for his B-Day. We soon after went camping and put the knives through the ringer.
The fire starters were great little trinkets. They worked and started a few fires but soon wore out and were just show pieces on the knife. Also I lost mine going through a rough hike, I later removed the whole firestarter from my knife.
The diamond sharpener worked like a charm but there was nothing to sharpen the serrations. Carrying the knives on our sides in its sheath was a bit uncomfortable considering it dug into your side, but it was bearable.
Now to the knives themselves. Blade/ edge was perfect. The handle although a little beat up due to the softer material used still stays in hand with no slippage. My friend and I both love these knives and he has told me that it is the best and most useful gift he has ever received.

5 Mvkh Jdjgc - AUG 12, 2013


5 Realiable, good knife Giovanni - AUG 11, 2013

Awesome blade, does a whole lot of stuff and still performs well. Also it's handy having a sharpening stone on the sheath. Flint works well, but can be lost sometimes. Great knife.

3 survivel man wylie - AUG 9, 2013

i love bear and gerber but my knife broke only after a month

5 Gerber and Bear always pull it off. Andrew - AUG 6, 2013

I have owned several Gerber blades, all of which were folding knives, until I got this one. I love it. It keeps a wicked edge, and will be perfect for when I go camping. Right after I had bought the knife, I had noticed on the site that there is a fine edged one as well, and that is my preference, fine edged blades. So, I may have to go and buy that one too.

Pros: The blade is carbon steel. Need I say more?
The sheath is built like a truck. It's durable, and it does not scratch easily.
The grip keeps the knife in your hand. You won't lose it if your hands end up bloody from game.
The whistle is far louder than any other I have heard, even sports ones don't compare. It could possibly scare off bears.
The fire starter that is included with the blade is just perfect. It will not fail you if you are in the cold, and are in need of warmth.

Cons: I see none here.

Overall, for the price I got it, it is most definitely worth it. It also serves as a pretty good combat knife, minus the bright colors on the grip.

5 Amazing Legacy-147 - JUL 30, 2013

Simply wonderful amazing handle and for those who hate serations THERE IS A FINE EDGE VERSION! I love this knife I've used it for while great great great.

3 good and bad jonny - JUL 29, 2013

I got this knife for X-Mas and a part of the blade chipped while I took it out of the sheath. over all its a good knife buy it you'll love it.

5 Excellent knife Trackmarine1075 - JUL 28, 2013

My cousin recently bought this knife and let me borrow it for a camping trip. I have to say for someone who collects and uses many knives this is by far my favorite! The fire starting notch on the tang is perfectly placed! I'm not a fan of serrated knives though so I have ordered the fine edge! Gerber keep it up!

5 Amazing Forlorn - JUL 25, 2013

Just responding I meant to say Amazing knife couldn't stop using it.

5 Amazing Forlorn - JUL 24, 2013

Amazing knife could stop using it. An absolute must in your survival kit.great job Bear and Gerber.

5 great knife armed and dangeres - JUL 24, 2013

nice knife best I've used yet

4 Favorite knife, but sensitive handle Logan soileau - JUL 21, 2013

You can not beat this knife for the price. My only complaint is that the rubber part of the handle is easily banged up.

1 Broecker Griffin - JUL 20, 2013

Over all horrible knife. The blade rusted very badly and the knife itself couldn't hold an edge. The design of the sheath is amazing however. I would get a different knife for the money.

5 AMAZING kiaraandfelicityt - JUL 20, 2013

i think that they are one of the trusted knife brands every thing and anything that they advertised was in the knife according to all buyers and me owning 2 i think they are amazing and feels great in my hand the flint works like a charm and i love how you can buy a flint replacement instead of a new knife :)

5 great ced - JUL 19, 2013

5 GREAT!!!! Alex Schultz - JUL 10, 2013

Veary good knife,the only problem I had was that the blade gets scratched easly,but that was when it first came out and I am sure that they have fixed it by now.

1 not a quality sheath john - JUL 6, 2013

the knife is okay the sheath is of low quality products i would not buy this knife there are better knifes out there for the 60 plus dollars you would spend

2 okay at best chase - JUL 6, 2013

the knife is great durable strong
the sheath is absolute crap after a month or so of mild use broke the plastic top broked and a and i wouldnt buy this knife agian the sheath is absolute junk

5 Customer John Gressley - JUN 26, 2013

I have several knives from SOG, Al Mar, CRKT - this is by far my favorite & the most used out of all of my gear.

5 best knife I have dean - JUN 26, 2013

I have a lot of knives and this is by far the best it is light weight and has every thing you need. I would recommend this to be the first thing you get out of bear Grylls line of tools.

5 great knife all around russ - JUN 25, 2013

easily the best knife i have ever purchased and as a boy scout i collect knives very dependable i have gone for a weekend with only this knife and had food fire water shelter this knife can cut trees down it is a full tang so the blade is solid i would recommend for anyone who uses knives the price is great for all the uses

5 Great Knife Flat Water - JUN 24, 2013

Keep from losing the fire starter by removing the whistle lanyard from the hilt and loop it thru the fire starter. Then release the two Velcro straps to unfold the sheath and expose the sharping stone and pass the knife hilt end thru the lanyard loop and stop at the mid point of the sheath. Now fold the sheath back up and secure the Velcro. The fire starter is now secured to the sheath.

1 no full tang Your name - JUN 22, 2013

not full tang only half ..better get the pro..

4 awesome knife! Jacob - JUN 20, 2013

this is the definition of a survival knife! I like how the knife and sheath have so many features. I know that I can fully trust this knife in any situation and environment.

5 Awesome Justin - JUN 20, 2013

Great Knife, feels comfortable in your hand, great weight. totally worth the 60$

4 Its a good knife! Carson Bradley - JUN 16, 2013

its a over-all good knife, but it has a few flaws, like why would you let the flint part of the fire starting kit be affected by gravity where it could fall out easily?

5 Survivalist Ric - JUN 13, 2013

This is a great knife had it for a long while now and it does anything and everything I highly recommend this knife to anyone spending time outdoors or serves as a great protection item thx gerber and if u don't have one get one

5 Army ranger Sergeant Phillips - JUN 11, 2013

Fantastic knife very sharp right out of the box very sturdy but I find the whistle useless but I took it off that is just m opinion overall 5/5

5 Sergeant sanders U.S. Army Bill sanders - JUN 8, 2013

Great knife I love it very durable and I love the built in fire steel so I don't have to worry about packing one as long as I carry this knife. I don't like the location of the whistle it is hard to use the pummel with that and have to grip it awakwardly between your fingers but over all it is a fantastic knife and would recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors

5 Scout Mihai Romania - JUN 6, 2013

very useful knife! Wait to use in a trip with Bear Grylls !!!
Be prepared!

5 SCSlim SCSlim - JUN 3, 2013

Love this knife. The serrations are great for what serrations are great for - cutting rope and stringy stuff, and they shave feather sticks like nobody's business. The fine edge part of the blade came razor sharp right out of the package. The fire steel is excellent in combination with the striking surface on the spine of the knife. Sheath is good for horizontal or vertical carry. An excellent choice for a general purpose camp/trail/hunting/outdoor knife. You can pay more for other knives, but if your budget puts this one within reach, go for it. It's a good knife, worth the money, and if it isn't abused, it should last for many years.

5 best knife ever dallin ruffell - JUN 1, 2013

I love this knife its durable has amazing grip and is great for chopping down wood it has a knife sharpener on the back that makes it great for sharpening it when camping or in the wild , the flit on it is great but after a while it wears out and stores don't sell the flint that fits on the knife so you have to order it online, it is probably the best knife I own and it is totally worth the money.

5 bear quinn - MAY 31, 2013

i love your knives i don't own one but have used one before while hunting i am a fan of Gerber though.

5 Good Alex - MAY 26, 2013

I don't have it but its good

5 Great knife Simon - MAY 25, 2013

3 Changes? Dave - MAY 20, 2013

Why did you change the blade style? I have an early version of this knife, and it is having the typical loose pommel problems. I'm reluctant to send it in for a warranty replacement, because I don't want the new blade shape. you've kept the shape for the straight edge, why did you change for the serrated??

5 The best yet. Logan Miller - MAY 20, 2013

I've been using Gerber Gear exclusively since I bought my first pocket knife as a kid. Out of the several Gerber products I've purchased, this one is something special. Bear Grylls is an incredible man, and role model, and this knife is to his standard. Can't wait to save up and get the pro version.
For God and country.

5 Customer Service Joshua - MAY 17, 2013

The knife is great can baton all day no need to take a hatchet. but the customer service is amazing my sheath was coming apart at the seam and they replaced it not charge.

5 Great Survival Knife! Peyton - MAY 12, 2013

This is one of the best survival knives on the market! I purchased this knife last year and it is still in the same condition when I bought it. This knife does the work a hatchet does and has a very good grip. I highly recommend this knife becuase it will save your butt if your stranded somewhere.

5 Great Knife Jack - MAY 12, 2013

A few minor flaws, but for the love of god stop complaining about the blade being dull! It is at first, but there is a sharpener in the damn sheath! The fire starter kick some serious ass and the pommel didn't come flying off after smacking some shit around for 20 minutes. The only complaint I have is that the fire starter, after a while is worn down, but I was relieved to find you can buy an exact replacement for it.

5 great aidan - MAY 11, 2013

i have had this knife for about a year now and i use it on a regular. this knife has held up amazingly and is my favourite knife i own now .buy it

5 Excellent Tom - MAY 9, 2013

I have had this knife since spring 2011. I got the re-released version. I bought it special for a summer outdoor trip. I spent months in the great outdoors using it for chopping fire wood to preparing dinner. I would recommend it to anybody who is going on any outdoor trip. The fire starter is quite durable, a part of the plastic got cut off and it still fits into the sheath like new. The serrations were useful in working through wood.
The sharpener was a pleasant addition. It worked wonders.
A helpful tip I found through out my time in wet season is that when your knives get a bit of rust on them, get a barbique scraper, it works great to sc

5 great jack - MAY 9, 2013

This knife is cool but if you already have a survival kit get the big rock.

5 yea good knife haza sutts - MAY 8, 2013

Great knife but a little pricey compared to others on the market. Still my favorite.

Hello my name is Ömer. Im from Turkey İn İzmir. I want to buy this knife but Im worried. Is there a cargo to Turkey ?

5 SWEEEEEEEEET Andrew - APR 25, 2013

This knife is awesome. NO worries of busting the blade off it is SO sturdy. Nice work!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 would be 5 stars w/o the orange Matt - APR 23, 2013

I think they would sell a lot more if they had ones without the orange accents. And lose the giant BG on the handle.

4 GreenSurvivor JD - APR 22, 2013

One more thing, the sharpener. I think instead of having a flat sharpener, an integrated pull through sharpener like in the lmf ll survival would be easier and a little more practical

5 GreenSurvivor JD - APR 22, 2013

I have the serrated blade and I gotta say its pretty much the best knife I've owned, and I've got a LOT. This knife along with the gerber flik make a great team. I've had the same flik for YEARS which made me trust gerber enough to buy the ultimate. By far a great knife. Had it for a few months putting it to the test. The problem with the serrated is there's not much of a straight blade, which sucks. But instead of getting rid of the serrations all together, they should put it on the back next to the fire starter. I think that would make it more functional, but that's just me. I use this knife everyday outside and at work and its a great knife and tool, but my only problem with it all together is it don't hold an edge as well as I'd like. Other than that, GREAT knife!

5 amazing TJ - APR 19, 2013

3 Question Jesse - APR 11, 2013

Why is there no way to attach the gerber fixed blade sheath to the parang blade's sheath? I collect blades and that would be a nice feature.

1 Hate it! Eddy V - APR 11, 2013

Not worth the money if you are serious about the outdoors.

5 Must have NGraham70 - APR 7, 2013

The knife is fantastic. Has held up through 2 hunting seasons. Many times have I had to use then knife to cut through brush to get to my blind or even to cut small branches for a fire starter.

Worst knife I ever bought! not even sharpe out of the box. Then I saw it was made in China, Glad to see you sold out. Maybe you should of hooked up with buck?

5 great clay - MAR 16, 2013

Great knife. Durable and totally worth the money. But you can get it cheaper somewhere else

5 Love it ! Jérome st-hilaire - MAR 13, 2013

Very good knife in general i use it for survival like building shelter, etc. I love the balance of the knife that make wood choppping significantly easier. The blade keep her sharpeness the sheat and the accessorie (fire starter, sharpener) are simple to use and durable. 5/5

5 IC 7pj - MAR 13, 2013

One of my favorite knives. Holds a nice edge and has a sturdy feel in my hand. Fire steel works like a charm.

4 Good! BG310 - MAR 12, 2013

This is an great knife. One thing I was a little annoyed with was that I had a hard time putting the Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide into the pocket on the back of the sheath, but that's not such a big deal. I think the knife maybe should have had a easier to use sharpener. Other wise this is an excellent knife well done Gerber and B.G.!!

5 you rock liesel - MAR 11, 2013

tis a wonderful knife very strong I also like how it locks and bear grilles and gerber have been the best knife brand ever thank you so much

5 lol abdi - MAR 9, 2013

a bit to expensive lower like 10$

5 thanks bear huy do - MAR 6, 2013

i love it

4 Epic Darrell - MAR 6, 2013

It's a good knife. If you pay the $62 here for it you are a fool because you can get it elsewhere for 20 dollars cheaper. In the forty dollar range of knives you will be happy with it. The flint works darn well, and the knife is sturdy. Maybe they had issues with the first run, but mine is good to go.

5 awesome maxsurvival2 - MAR 4, 2013

im only 12 and I seen bear grylls and he is awesome. when I got this it just satisfied my needs

5 The oltimate survival knife Joshua Manning-Campbell - MAR 4, 2013

5 Hunter Merlin - FEB 24, 2013

Good kife. Make sure the fire starter is on all the way

5 Amazing,best knife ever devin - FEB 20, 2013

I got this last july and its so amazing!

5 Thanks Bear, No disappointments Moose - FEB 18, 2013

I carried a Gerber BMF in the field for 26 years and it always performed as the situation demanded. After much consideration, I retired it and bought this knife as a replacement. I have no regrets. This knife has no shortcomings. It is very practical in size and amenities. the blade is of good quality alloy, sharpens well and holds its edge under normal use and even abuse. The serrations are a useful addition and good design. The handle is ergonomic and allows the knife to be used in all manners comfortably, it has an excellent textured non slip rubberized surface. The striker rod is of good quality and makes fires easily, and lasts for many uses without prematurely thinning. The hard sheath is excellent as is the nylon sheath, both well thought out and constructed, especially the knife retaining latch on top of the sheath. The diamond hone on the back of the sheath dresses the blade well and has lasted many uses. All stitching, nylon and velcro are good quality. I can wholeheartedly recommend this knife to anyone for anything. It is top shelf with no disappointments. I have seen videos of people pounding these through 12"' pieces of firewood and hammering the pommel brutally, until failure occurred. No knife is made to perform like a hammer or axe although watching these videos, this knife held up where most knives I own would never have come close for many times the price. I have owned many high grade knives by big names in the field and Bear's Ultimate has performed with the best of them. My only recommendation is to tie a short piece of para cord from the sheath to the ferro rod to prevent loss, other than that zero complaints. I can easily see Bear's Ultimate knife lasting the quarter century my BMF lasted. Thanks Bear for such a well thought out and constructed field tool. Best regards, Moose in Minnesota, USA

3 bob bob - FEB 16, 2013

yes i bought it and only used it in my back yard then the fire starter fell out i do not apreciate this as i did not use it for any large tasks or battoning and it fell out going to get 2 mor 1 for my lmf 2 and one for my bg ultimate knife also think about getting the ultimate pro if you read me reveivw

5 Great sharp durable Mitch fontenot - FEB 14, 2013

I recently purchased this knife and it has taken plenty of abuse. While I was camping I was able to start my fire collect firewood build my shelter and made a snare using the pocket guide so all I can say is wow.

5 Bear Grylls FAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! zeke - FEB 14, 2013

sweet knife!just bought it three days ago.very satisfied,with the knife.I'm also a BIG man vs wild fan!I give it 5 stars!Thanks Gerber.

5 surviver bradley - FEB 11, 2013

i was recently in a situation where i only had what was in my ruck and this knife may have saved me from cold weather and hunger. it helped in many ways hunting a rabbit and cooking it for food(not recomended for taste to eat the heart). very good knfe and very reliable!

4 Satisfied user j03y - FEB 10, 2013

Bought this knife a couple months ago. So far, very happy. I've successfully started a fire and did some light batoning with oak and maple. I also chopped through two 2" maple branches with great ease. Through all of that the blade stayed sharp and was very comfortable to use. It does have a few flaws, mainly being made in China, but overall very good for the price (bought it on $50).

5 AWESOME Cobey - FEB 8, 2013

This is a very good knife good for starting fires,hunting,and camping. You can get it online at for $30.00.

5 Survivalist Connor - FEB 8, 2013

Well, what I have to say about this knife is it is a pretty good sized blade! I have tooken it out in the woods and started a fire pretty easy with it and have sawed a little tree down and made an a framed shelter with it!! i totally recommend it totally!

4 Your Title Philip Ciao - FEB 8, 2013

great knife, love the thickness and the good handle..

5 Survival Instructor Katana Burner - FEB 2, 2013

This knife has it all. Bells, sharpener, hammer and a WHISTLE. Alright let me get into this knife...again. I recently switched to Gerber from Cold Steel cause of several factors but the main factors are the fact that Gerber listens to its buyers, makes very comfortable handles and puts a lot of thought into their blade making process. While it is true the knife can come in sharper out of the box I would assume that mot people would have either learned how to properly sharpen their blades or already know how to. So that was not an issue with me.

On a different trip I took my BG Ultimate Survival knife into the Amazon jungle to teach another class. What I found was astonishing to say the least. After spearing several fish, lighting several fires or in some cases attempted to before I went and made a fire saw with the knife due to the humidity, and made several shelters I found that that blade not only held its sharper edge I gave it but also didn't rust. Yes I use mineral oil to prevent that, BUT OILING YOUR BLADE SHOULD BE GIVEN!

The only thing that wore out slightly was the fire steel. But Gerber understands this and has replacements ready to go as mine came in very quickly. Oh and I got two decals too!

My final thought on this blade are this. It's simple, easy to use, easy to access, easy to stow, trust worthy and yes the pommel is a great hammer and IT DIDN'T BREAK. My only concern is the belt loop. It held but its located in a less than desirable place. The stitching can scratch your skin. But that was taken car of using an extra strap so it can quickly be placed on a belt to prevent this. I own several Gerber knives some BG and many are not. They all have one thing in common. THEY WORK AND THEY WORK EXTREMELY WELL! Thank you Gerber for keeping me and my students alive.

5 gas station owner lloyd meade - JAN 31, 2013

This knife WORKS WONDERS... i got it for a pack of smokes. Cuts right trough shoes.

1 not good joseph - JAN 30, 2013

the knife is way to dull and wont stray sharp not worth the money

1 Unhappy user Seno36 - JAN 27, 2013

well used it one time cutting para-cord and than to notch out a 2x4 needles to say the serrated teeth are no longer there. so for a $60 knife with alot of hype I would say it is a a great straight blade knife but poorly engineered.

5 Public Safety/ Rescue Specialist E Clyburn - JAN 25, 2013

Got this knife for Christmas and I must say its a great knife. Nice feel straight forward design good edge retention great knife for the outdoor person looking for a fixed blade knife for hiking, camping, etc that want kill your wallet and is made by a major player in the knife world that stands by it products. Overall nice size good blade thickness and good sheath.

3 nice but..... canadianwolf - JAN 23, 2013

I got the knife a few days ago but didn't have the chance to use it till today . i liked the fire starter and the sheath, the knife was OK but after a few min of use the serrated edge was gone when trying to cut a 1 inch birch tree (i guess ill resharpen it and take the serrated edge out completely)

5 knife yannick - JAN 22, 2013

this knife is really good but the sharpener is not the best

5 Best Knife Ever. Survival Expert - JAN 18, 2013

Cuts down trees 4 inches wide crazy knife amazingly sharp

3 outdoor tech stev cote - JAN 10, 2013

exelent knif for the price.
pro : blade
Rubber Grip
Fire Starter
Sharpener = will do the jobe if you dont have an other.

con : Stainless Steel Pomme for hammering =since it is not full tang design and if you use it to hammer it will break like mine

5 Your Title modernviking - JAN 6, 2013

This knife is great. Im only thirteen but know my way around the wilderness and after buying and trying this knife I found it had everything I need for basic survival. All though my whistle did come off its string and the blade is marked and scratched quiet easily.other than that nothing but good things to say. The serration is very sharp and durable.

If you can buy this knife do it

5 bear grylls knife and flint bar chase yates - JAN 6, 2013

it was the best knife i have ever had the flint was amazing and i loved it

5 Great knife Bobby - JAN 5, 2013

This knife is great for bushcraft. It is my secondary blade, the primary being the camilis carnivore machete (great machete). Highly reacomended.

5 Long time Gerber fan TomasT - JAN 4, 2013

I have been collecting knives for a long time my first knife was a Gerber mark11 dated to 1983. I love this new BG Ultimate knife, and I am tired of the nay sayers and all the torture test diehards saying this knife is not good enough to depend on in a life threatening situation. Any savvy knife enthusiast cares for his precious tools instead of subjecting them to ridiculous extremes. I like many of you here would never get caught in the wild or in remote area with just one knife to depend on. I myself carry a Gerber Multiplier and 4in pocket knife every day and if was going to travel anywhere I throw a 6-8 fixed blade in my bag and another in my car plus a camp axe and military shovel.

My travel bag consists of one 6-9 Bowie, 4in pocket knife Gerber multiplier, Gerber tree saw, Gerber camp axe. I don’t ever see myself cutting down a tree with my BG Ultimate Knife. But I like the idea that I could if I ever had too. Thanks Gerber for another nice knife.

5 BKcollector Bradley - JAN 4, 2013

I bought this knife and its been very good but feels kinda small compared to my LMF 2 but the fire steel works great and sharpener works too. the only thing i would add to this would be a lanyard for the fire steel i have already replaced it twice! Overall great knife!!!

5 not a serration guy ghostrider2012 - JAN 3, 2013

it's an awesome knife the best one Ive ever own, but I'm thinking of upgrading to the fine edge version of this knife because i was bush crafting with it and one of the serrations broke off but it cut through a 2by4 easily. very good blade.

4 Mrs. .Renee - JAN 1, 2013

It's a great knife but I think the fire steel should be more secure. It's fallen out twice.

5 Pitbull1899 melven ive - DEC 28, 2012

The knife works amazing on skining deer and outher stufff i love it

4 fire starter krattmauss - DEC 27, 2012

i only have one problem with the knife the fire starter should be placed the other way so it doesn't get caught or snagged on anything and fall out other than that the knife is amazing it is well built and has many uses

5 best knife ever!!!!!!! marcus - DEC 27, 2012

i love how the para cord has the whistle incorporated into the design.i also like the wet stone sharpener. the knife has proven to be very practical.

5 best knife ever!!!!!!! marcus - DEC 27, 2012

i love how the para cord has the whistle incorporated into the design.i also like the wet stone sharpener. the knife has proven to be very practical.

5 Absolutley love it, looking to incorporate into my business derek - DEC 26, 2012

couldnt ask for a better nice honestly, first off starting with the knife. its extremely well balanced, feels nice to grip and hold. has a freakin hammer on the handle! ingenious! comes with whistle, diamond knife sharpener on the back of the case. and there's tons of other stuff. the sheath and fabric holder are really nicely built, I've noticed other people saying they've had problems with them like their knife or fire starter falling out, i haven't had a problem at all with that. every time i use it i find a new use for it, and something new about it. worth every dime.
good job Gerber. 10/10

3 Your Title Steve - DEC 26, 2012

The knife is great! The one thing I hate about the knife is the sheath. It looks cheap. Gerber please make a better sheath for the knife. A friend of mine bought the knife and the sheath started to break after a week. Thats the reason I have not bought my own knife. The sheath does not look good at all with the knife in my opinion. I like the survival instructions on the back, fire starter, and the whistle. I would have given the knife a five, but the sheath needs improvement. Also can you make a black version for the knife. I understand that orange stands out in the wild, but if you are a soldier the last thing you want is to be spotted.

5 Big Buck Kyler - DEC 25, 2012

I just got my knife today and absolutely love it. It has a quality and substantial feel to it. The fire starter is easy to use and works wonderfully. I have already used it for multiple cut, sawing, and pounding purposes. It has withstood remarkablely well to abuse. The sheath is also well built and relatively light weight. The only complaint I have is that the instruction manual doesn't fit in the pocket. I look forward to using this as a camping and hunting tool for many years to come.

5 B.G. Ultimate Knife S.A - DEC 25, 2012

This knife lives up to its name, im going to put it away in a emergency backpack and bring it along for outdoor excursions. After reading comments about how the serrated edge breaks, and the fire starter doesnt stay in it's slot on the sheath.i've come to the conclusion that This knife is not meant for everyday use or even recreational use its meant for survival situations, so im just going to pack it up and use it when i really need it, you can tell just by holding it that its a knife you can rely on, its a survival knife it shouldnt be used unless you really need it.. i know this knife works so im not going to go out and start cutting branches and 2x4's , or go and start fires with the flint. im going to wait and use it when i really need it , in a survival situation, i'll use my other knives when i go fishing, camping, hunting, etc.. and just pack it with . hopefully i will never have to use it.

the whistle is a great idea and the pommel is a bonus because it makes the knife a double sided threat in self defense situations. the blade reflects sun well also . and the pocket survival guide that comes with is extremely useful. This knife comes dull (most do) i ran it across my finger and it didnt even break the skin, but once its sharpened using a stone (not the diamond sharpener on the back of the sheath) its deadly. If i could have one item with me in a sticky situation it'd be this knife. Great buy , reasonable price, i recommend this product to anybody who wants a reliable knife, it really is an ultimate knife. Thankyou Gerber and Bear Grylls for developing a great knife. I love it!! ignore the 1 star comments!!!

5 Hickey Ryan - DEC 25, 2012

GREAT knife! Def. a great buy for your outdoor adventurous person in your life. Just go the knife, but based on their hunting knives GERBER BEAR has one if not the top best selling survival knives!

5 SPC Frazer - DEC 25, 2012

fit comfortably in the hand. easy to use. contoured grip does not allow the hand to slide around. it is light. the blade is very sturdy, full tang. sheath is nice with both horizontal and vertical belt loops, great for MOLLI straps.

5 Happy Dad rrandcj - DEC 24, 2012

Just received the knife for Christmas...... LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

5 Survival instructor Colten - DEC 24, 2012

One of the best survival knives with its big brother being the Gerber LMF II acek this is a great design, and has been tested by Bear Grylls in some of the most extreme environments. I have also used it in many extreme environments and it has not let me down!!! Great knive gerber!!!

5 Outdoor enthusiast mikerroni - DEC 24, 2012

I purchased this knife in October 2011 and never had any issues with it, whatsoever. This knife has met and exceeded all my expectations for a knife.

And, my previous knife was a folding Ray Applegate (Gerber) knife. I miss that knife every day and cannot believe I lost it. The BG ultimate survival knife is awesome and anyone who criticizes this knife clearly has no idea what they are trying to talk about.

However, my only issue is I did lose my tangs attached fire starter in the bush this past summer, but that's no biggy and ordered a replacement..

I do not go anywhere without my BG Ultimate Survival knife and is extremely handy..

4 Bear Grylls Ultimate Fixed Blade Knife Kurt - DEC 23, 2012

Very good knife. One of my favorites. But the fire starter needs to be lanyard to the sheath, because I lost the my fire starter hunting this year.

3 Your Title robert - DEC 21, 2012

would love to see this knife have a sturdier sheath and have the nylon sheath have two vertical loops instead of just one

5 Survivalist Survivalist - DEC 20, 2012

This knife is great it's durable it's got the basic tools you need to survive and it's a powerful knife

5 Person Bear Grylls - DEC 18, 2012

very nice knife. is a good all perpous knife. they need to make a Bear Grylls backpack or raccksack.


Nice knife but I would like to see a thicker blade like the M-90.
My Navy SEALS MK II har more surface on the back then the average hammer and twice as much as the BG knife
Other then that it good but I always use my MK-II knife

5 Survival knife Unknown - DEC 16, 2012

Great knife, has all basic tools you need to survive in the outdoors.

5 Ultimate? ZACH M - DEC 16, 2012

This knife definatley has the right to call its self the ''Ultimate Survival Knife''. It was razor sharp out of the box. Ive batoned, hammered,made tinder, started fires, thrown it, chucked it at plywood, Skinned animals, and ive gotta tell you, its definatley held up. I would recomend this knife to hunters, fishers, and people who are outdoorsmen. Good knife for the price!

5 Outsatanding Person - DEC 13, 2012

This is a overall great knife. It is crazy sharp and very tough. If you want to skin an animal, get a hunting knife. But if you want a knife that woks for everything and does it amazingly, get this knife. I love it. You might too.

5 Ultimate is right! Joe Dremmel - DEC 13, 2012

My local Academy has this knife for $50! That is an absolute steal!! I am an outdoors man, and if I can only take one tool with me, it's this one. So much for your money it's unreal. Great Survival knife period.

4 Seems Good L. SKYWALKER - DEC 10, 2012

The serrations are weak, for a survival knife.

5 tweek casper - DEC 8, 2012

great knife i chopped through a 4x4" in minutes fire starter works easily and this knife throws within 7' excellent tool

4 Sergeant Jared - DEC 7, 2012

Im in the Marine Corps and have had this knife for a while now. I love it. The only thing i would change is the colors. I cannot carry it on my vest because of the colors. I wish they made the same thing but cammo.

5 First Gerber Michael Runyan - DEC 6, 2012

I bought this knife because of the absolute need to see for myself if it was as bad as some say or as good as others claim. Well, this knife has passed the test. I have beat this knife up! I have chopped with it, battonned with it, skinned with it, hammered with it and abused it like a beast. Folks, this knife has handled everything I have dished out. This is a great knife. My son wants a belt knife for when we go camping, and this is the one he is getting. Great job Gerber.

5 what is a tang sam - DEC 5, 2012

want is a tang or a full tang

5 cuz john rambo - DEC 1, 2012

the serrations broke while sharpening.

5 Question Trevor - NOV 30, 2012

Does this knife have a full tang?

5 cuz john rambo - NOV 28, 2012

no, the serrations broke because of an accident while sharpening, and the serrations broke, because i sharpened it the wrong way and applied too much pressure, causing the serrations to break.

5 Campboy Jeron - NOV 28, 2012

Heh John Rambo, why did you return a knife because it was getting dull, you don't know how to sharpen it? The knife rocks!

5 Cool Knife Brogan Martin - NOV 27, 2012

I am going to buy this knife because the dexterity seems quite great, i also like the looks.

5 pimp knife john rambo - NOV 24, 2012

this knife is AWESOME i had it for about a month before returning it because it was getting dull and the color comes off way too easy, but its a pimp lookin knife overall

5 Great Knife Andrew - NOV 23, 2012

I`ve put this knife through numerous tasks and I can honestly say that I`ve beaten this knife up quite a bit and it is still going strong. Excellent knife Gerber.

5 The best knife i've ever had. Wesley - NOV 21, 2012

I don't know what the people that are saying bad things about this knife are talking about because this knife is the best knife your ever going to get

5 scout who likes knives black shamrock - NOV 20, 2012

its absouluty awesome blade holds well has everthing you want in the wild only problem the fire steelwers down quick overall awesome

5 The Knife Smith Nathan - NOV 19, 2012

This is a great knife at an excellent price. I bought one for my wife to have with her when we go up to the mountains here in Colorado thinking it was a "cute" knife.

But I have to say I am very impressed with the quality and the abuse i've put it through. This is definitely no toy. It feels good in the hand and with the fire starter included in the sheath makes for an excellent tool for anyone to carry while outdoors. I was also impressed with the quality of the sheath and the built in sharpener is an excellent addition.

Great job on this one Gerber!

5 Impressive Bush Kid - NOV 13, 2012

Looks great, sturdy, stays sharp, colours are great for keeping track of the knive. Firestarter works great. Hope it lasts

4 Sweet Blade The guy - NOV 10, 2012

Im going to get one pretty soon and I have expectations for it. I need it to do good for all of the pack trips I do with my family.

5 elk hunting guide mark wilcox - NOV 8, 2012

I am very impressed with this knife . very universal, and rugged. I works great from skining and elk to building a fire to hammering a nail or a stake. I love it and the price is very reasonable I have much more expensive knifes I dont like nearly as well.

5 Survival knife Cap Cadet - NOV 7, 2012

I got this knife about a year ago for my 72 hour pack for my civil air patrol unit. My instructor recommended the knife if we could not afford the the lmf 2 knife, plus it had a good fire steel and an all purpose sharpener. The serrations on the blade are ok for adding the use as a saw for cutting wood, bone, or wire. I have dug, cut meat, wood. And it held up pretty good it can cut wood for shelter, and fire wood. I was happy to see a replacement for the fire steel which can light damp tinder. The only problem I had wad if I had the knife on my side an it flops around if I am running I would like gerber to add a led strap on it. I would recommend putting some para cord or a strip of leather in the little hole that attaches to scabbard to the sheath. Other than that it is. A great knife for the price.

5 Good knife Buster - NOV 7, 2012

I don't have this knife yet but I am getting it soon but a lot of these reviews are saying that serrations on a survival knife is bad. Not true at all serrations on a knife are very important in you are surviving and you fined a pice of rope that is thick serrations are good for cutting if you catch wild game cutting through flesh you need serrations and I have found that in my knives I have stations help me out with a lot of different things.

4 Outdoof hunter and campef David - NOV 6, 2012

Knife has nice wt. And feels good but i guess if i was designing i would make it 8" long with a wider blade ie wider in the front
Other tben that its a very fit and capable blade.

5 Shop Owner Michael Runyan - NOV 5, 2012

This is a good knife and great deal. I have used it very extensively and aggressively, with no problems at all. Works well for appropriate bushcraft jobs. The blade is strong, thick and durable. The pommel is brutal and can drive nails and break glass like a champ. Don't judge this knife on your like of Bear Grylls or his shows. This is a quality knife at a great price.

5 BEST KNIFE I EVER OWNED zachary bonnau - NOV 5, 2012

i got this knife last year for Christmas and i tell u what it is built to last i did all u can think to this knife ive thrown it at trees and can stick it in 75% of the time ive started fires with the flint and made like 15 traps all ready and its all good the case is ok but wish they made a case that when u put the knife in and it sharpness it ive even mounted it to a stick and went wild-boor hunting and a pig charged me and i killed it by stabbing it in the skull

best ever

5 Very good ! Rogerio - OCT 31, 2012

I am a big Bear Grylls fan, so decided to buy this knife. I m a survival enthusiast so this is the perfect knife ! Bought it today on a local store and not only it is beautiful, but it has great quality. I ll buy other products from Gerber/Bear Grylls now !

5 Good knife Ben - OCT 30, 2012

I have one and it is awesome !!!

4 ultimate survival andy - OCT 26, 2012

this is a great knife but does have one flaw that i really do not like. And that is that ti doesn't keep sharp. I can get it so sharp that it takes the hair off of my legs and after using it, it is some what dull. the whistle does have a bad original placement but that can easily be moved else where. over all you need to know how to properly sharpen a knife

5 Shikder RONY - OCT 25, 2012

Great for hiking/camping, solid build rubber grip is great. I started a fire in the second strike with the fire starter that gives huge sparks. Gerber did it.

5 love this knife Bilbo Baggins - OCT 9, 2012

i love this knife so much its the best knife i have gotten for such a low price i highly recommend this knife.

5 Hunter/X-Military Survivalist Dave - OCT 8, 2012

Great Knife. If you ever need it, this knife will help you stay alive with ease. Making a fire is simple....If you use a whistle rather than screaming you can sustain yourself in survival conditions.....always being able to sharpen your blade is an extreme bonus...The hammer on the handle is perfect for small jobs /busting open walnuts/ hammering down tent spikes, killing animals. The grip feels great in your hands and the whole system is light too! All around a great product with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!! What else can you ask for?

Thanks Gerber,
X - Navy Seal

5 Professional Hog Hunter Boomer - OCT 8, 2012

I love this knife, best survival knife ever One down side is the string with the whistle should be a bit bigger so you can fit your hand inside just in case you drop the knife it won't leave your hand. Besides that one downfall, hands down best survival knife ever!

5 Mountaineer Jeremy Edjan - OCT 6, 2012

Such a great knife... very innovative plus with all the other freebies that you get with it.

5 The Name Says It All Joe - OCT 5, 2012

The name truly does say it all. Amazing over all survival tool. It's loaded with very useful features. Draw backs, it does need to be sharpened upon purchasing but big deal, it only takes a couple minutes to do, and if you can't sharpen a knife you have no business with a knife like this and will probably never need to use its full potential. It has a comfortable grip and the ergonomics are good but not great. The handle could use a couple grooves for better spear making, like the LMF Infantry Knife.

5 survival mitch - SEP 29, 2012

this is a well rounded knife I would recommend. Look if you plan on framing a house with the handle, buy a hammer, If you plan on cutting down a tree buy a saw. It serves it's self as a survival knife, very well. I have switched from the SOG. gerber and Grylls have come on to some thing it has a great design and i cut,dig and all kinds of other good things with mine.

4 Outdoors Enthusiast Ethan H - SEP 28, 2012

I bought this knife after I got out of the Marines, as I spent a lot of time in the woods during deer season, and I like to canoe, camp, and hike. The knife is well balanced. I've actually hammered in tent stakes with the pommel. The rape whistle on it is useless (inside joke). I took it off first thing, forseeing issues with its placement. The fire starter works well if you've got good tinder (and if you can't make good tinder, then you're an idiot.). I put it through pretty rough use, and the grey finish is coming off, but that's to be expected, as a survival knife doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to do its job. The blad does dull a little faster than I'd like, but not nearly as quickly as some of the people here are saying. (Maybe they should get a proper knife sharpening kit for up keep when they're not using it). It's not Gerber's most durable survival knife, (see LMF II Survival) but does well enough for almost half the price. I would recommend this to anyone who isnt some sort of hardcore survivalist and just enjoys hunting and the outdoors. Hell, I would have carried it with me in country and just wrapped the handle in coyote grip tape if I had bought it earlier.

To Logan Crooks, "Boy Scout.": As someone who has actually been in the military, it is definitely military grade (the standards in the military aren't that high). And if you had to stop doing v-cutting and batoning while using it, it's because you have weak, delicate hands, not because the knife is poorly made. Also, if your knife is dulling that quickly, try sharpening at the correct angle. That tends to help.

4 decent knife syd - SEP 26, 2012

i use two knives the most. my KA-Bar and my Gerber BG. the Gerber is a good value and so far it has held up well on my camping/survival trips.

5 Great Blade jj - SEP 24, 2012

Awesome knife for the price, great look and the way it wears just makes it look more BA.

1 Don't Buy It... SEAL MAN - SEP 21, 2012

Think of the meaning of survival. One word for this knife. Cheap. Cheaply made, cheap metal and the tool does not endure.

3 Engineer / Survivalist Mark C - SEP 18, 2012

I purchased this knife even thou I have many other excellent survival knives. Thought that I looked cool. But I found that the hammer on the handle is just a simple shell and comes off very easily. The little whistle that come with it is not very loud either. I gave it to my girlfriend since she doesn't need to hammer with a knife. Sticking with my SOG Seal Team Elite.

5 awesome person - SEP 18, 2012

1 word.


4 You guys are missing the point David - SEP 15, 2012

It's Bear Gryll's, do you think he uses a knife in the wilderness? Of course not. It's meant to dull fast to give you people who can't survive without a knife more of a challenge.

5 Your Title ben mitchell - SEP 12, 2012

Nice well balanced I back pack and hike a lot this is ideal. Good job gerber and nice design bear.

3 One Problem josiah - SEP 11, 2012

there is only one problem with this knife and that is the serations they are to weak i love almost everything about the knife dont get me wrong but even just sawing wood and rope and the teeth break of i think the fine edge version would be far better

5 awesome! I am bears biggest fan! - SEP 9, 2012

5 military knife!! bear friend - SEP 7, 2012

amazing knife love the serations and spear holes.

4 OUTDOORSMAN Mason - SEP 6, 2012

I really like the knife, the design and ideas behind it are great. Problems I had with the knife are the poor quality of steel for the blade (dulls way too fast ), I think the fire starter should be flipped upside down so it doesn't fall out, and I really wish the sheath had more loops on it for more carrying options. Overall, I think it is a great knife, and I hope they continue to improve it, they have a good start.

5 Eagle scout Keith - SEP 6, 2012

Best knife that I have ever owned, from the fire starter to the built in wistle, blade sharpener, and hammer this is the ultimate survival knife. Worth the money.

5 Hiker, Trail Runner, Snow Shoeing Chris - AUG 21, 2012

I love this knife. I took it to an outdoors gear store and the guy there assisted me in setting up a system so I can have it secured to my shoulder strap with two sided velcro strapping for easy access when I need it. Peace of mind is nice to have when out there alone and knowing you have a knife not only for self defence, but for fire, signalling for help and the capability to sharpen the blade when needed.

best knife ever its perfect for ripping open a rabbit

4 Great Knife G&G - AUG 14, 2012

ive owned this knife for a little over 9 months now and i still use it a few times a week. after awhile i had the same problem with the serrations chipping like everyone has. i used a chainsaw file to fix this, i also removed the grey looking finish on the knife and added a clear finish to the blade. definitely a great knife.

4 4 star Daniel - AUG 8, 2012

i m getting this knife friday,it is awesome the only reason i gave it 4 stars is because the fire starter is useless with at tinder so i wish it had a place to put tinder

4 Great knife, horrible sheath! Brad P. - AUG 7, 2012

I have owned it for about 4 months now and I use it every weekend. I use it to cut firewood, filet fish and split larger pieces of wood by batoning it and it hasn't let me down. It's tough as nails! But, the sheath is a disaster! It won't fit my wide camping belt, and there is no option to carry it "scout" style.

5 The Ultimate Knife Adventure Seeker - AUG 7, 2012

This knife is called the Ultimate Knife for a reason. It is well built and extremely durable. I read some reviews for problems with the construction of the knife but have never encountered any in the year I have owned this knife. I bring this knife on every trip I go on and it has proved its worth. Yet I wanted to test this knife in its extreme. I brought it on a week canoeing trip with me in the Canadian wilderness, where the knife encountered bushwhacking, fish gutting, and constant use. Even though when hiking in neck deep mud the fire starter fell out and I was pretty disappointed, I contacted the Warranty Team and they gave me a new one and responded within a day of my email. You can't beat that kind of service. Cons would be it needs larger drainage ports in the bottom of the sheath and i think the flint should face up but you can fix that buy just tying some p-cord to it. This knife is great and I have already recommended it to a couple friends who have bought it and love it. This is well worth the money if you come in contact with a survival situation.

5 best survival knife I have seen anthony - AUG 6, 2012

This is the best survival knife I have seen so far. I am not a Bear Grylls fan but this knife is a great design and when my hand is on it you can't see the big BG on the side.

Very impressed with the knife, holds a really sharpe edge. The handle fits very nice in your hand. Would recommend this to anyone..

3 Lots of flaws Your name - JUL 29, 2012

I've brought this knife on many camping and back packing trips and find the knife its self to be very dependable. However, out of the package it was not very sharp and I find it hard to put a decent edge on it and does not hold an edge well either. The sheath is terrible. The clip that holds the knife in place broke after I fell once. The flint fell out of its slot many times and so I don't lose it I had to attach some nylon cord and fasten it to the sheath. The survival packet that comes with it does not fit in its designed slot and undid the top part of the stiching when I tryed to put it in.

5 Waiting John Trolliskie - JUL 27, 2012

I have seen the knife and wanted it. And, when I got it, i was very amazed.

5 AMAZING Matt - JUL 24, 2012

I am a Venturer in scouting.... i would love this.. it is amazing

5 Great knife and parang as a set! Danny - JUL 24, 2012

My brother got me the the knife and parang for christmas and i immediately put them both to use. The Parang is ideal for quickly clearing a path through thick underbrush like thorns and oversized plants , it also can cut through sizeable firewood. The knife is very useful and reliable, though the serrations can be limiting in some situations. I found that the two work best as a pair in survival situations.

5 excellent gerber bear grylls - JUL 22, 2012

perfect top super brilliance a good buy it has a fire starter a sharpener a whistle a stomper and can be a spear no wonder it was the best selling knife of 2011 100% designed by bear grylls i would recommend to every one get this knife from scouts to home to military great buy and a super grip well done bear grylls and gerber

4 Improvment Gerber Knife Fan - JUL 20, 2012

I think gerber should have teamed up with buck knives to make this knife. Gerber could have been in charge of the design, buck couldve made the blade itself, using 420 HC stainless steel, and had there heat treatment company (Bos) heat treat it. Wouldve been a harder steel, sharper, hold and edge longer, and easier to sharpen. Then they could have made it in the USA. Wouldve been a better knife that way. I like the knife a lot the way it is but i think my idea would make for a better knife.

4 decent knife me - JUL 20, 2012

really nice knife , use it alot, sharpener isn't great but does the job, firesteel and sheath is very nice, i like the serrations

5 best knife ever! GoArmy - JUL 19, 2012

This is the best survival knife i have ever seen and used before. I take this knife everywhere, other than school of course, but if i was stuck in a survival situation, i would count on this knife to save my life. This knife also has a lot of features on it that can be really usefull at times. Gerber, this is the best knife you have ever made so far. And also, Bear Grylls rocks!!

4 MR scout150 - JUL 19, 2012

took this knife on a trip into the wilderness three days with only some trap and a knife each. my friend had a knife from Sweden 200$ mine works better on anything my friend just went out and bought one

4 Boy Scout Logan F. Crooks - JUL 17, 2012

This Knife is not as durable as you think, the paint coating is wearing off in areas that I never have batoned with. I put this Knife through admittedly hard-use as that is what it is meant for. The Straight-edge on this Knife dulls VERY quickly and the grip near the guard although extremely grippy is chipping after some hard batons. On a positive note, the Serrations work fantastic and are not dull at all. The Whistle is extremely loud and I mean extremely. The Whistle even compares with the FOX 40 SOLAS approved Rescue Whistle! However, the placement on the handle is really jacked-up, I mean this thing swings around every which way and whips the back of your hand while V-cutting, making it sting. The grip is extremely grippy, but I seem to get more blisters on this blade than a standard KA-BAR. On even moderate batons I get A LOT of vibration to the point where I have to stop for a little while and pick back up again. The Fire Starter does work very well, but not to the point of the PRO-FORCE line of Fire Steels and it's bigger Bear Grylls Fire Starter brother. Military Grade Sheath my butt. The Nylon Sheath is absolute Crap! It's too stiff, is not lightweight and by no means is Military Grade, if it was Military Grade than it would be made out of Berry Compliant Cordura with Type "E" Stitching. Maybe North Korean Military Grade. The Freebee Survival Instructions are moderately useful but not comprehensive and barely water-resistant. On the other hand, the Land to Air Rescue Instructions are very useful. The Diamond Sharpener does work. I really, really like the Pommel, I cracked through 2 and a half inch Ice in the Winter with no problems. However, if the Pommel is used on almost anything other than Ice, than particles get caught in the checkered grates on the face. It batons great but the Steel on this Knife is absolute Crap! The steel rusts and doesn't have ideal edge retention as advertised. I truly like the Colorations, but am not always a fan of the BG Brand marking. Lastly, Made in China!

5 Amazing Knife!!! Jay - JUL 16, 2012

This knife is incredible. It's incredibly durable with the best grip that I have seen on a knife. The sharpener and fire starter are extremely useful as well. Just a great knife!

5 Everyday User K-man "The Native American" - JUL 13, 2012

This is a great knife and sheath. The blade is sharp the edge is great for cutting rope and many other things. This knife has saved my hide and kept my boat from getting caught up in bad weather. Im a Technician an use this blade on many things like cutting hose, plastic, rope, and when im out on a lake run it does its fair share of work. i have had many blade break and fail on me as well as fall apart while on rough trips on motorcycles or boats or cars from bad terrain. this is money well spent and recommend for hardcore users. The sheath is excellent , I've had many sheaths fall apart, tear, fade, and lack in holding a knife in place. This is important for safety and losing a knife is the worst.

5 great knife stephen - JUL 11, 2012

i was a little hesitant on buying it because of all the issues with the pommel, but wow is this ever a great knife, lightweight, great sheath, but the stone for sharpening is a little course

5 AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! Teco - JUL 5, 2012

it is a very good knife its so strong and it has a great grip

3 electrician Kyle - JUL 2, 2012

i used this knife quite a bit and the thought behind it is great but the steel needs to be a little harder and it has a little rust on the blade and the teath has broken off on it. i think that it shouldn't have serrated edges on a survival knife, to brittle and hard to sharpen

3 Good enough but ... Bob - JUL 1, 2012

First of all, I have been working with this knife for a while and had no failure.

However, the blade was not sharp out of the package and I had to sharpen it.

I had no problems with the serrations and find them useful.

The blade doesn't hold an edge for a long time. After about an hour carving wood, I had to resharpen it (hopefully the blade is easy to resharpen).
I didn't use the sharpening tool provided with the knife which I find is too coarse.

The handle grip is great but the ergonomics of the handle could be improved : the bump (guard) on top of the handle is in the way when you put your thumb on top of the blade -> make it difficult to ca

I could light a fire using the "fire steel"

1 Awefull Game Hntr - JUN 30, 2012

$62 worth? I don't think so but you can buy for much cheaper. What do you get? You get what you pay for... Basically not much quality at all.

4 ok knife, but expensive backpacker - JUN 30, 2012

This is a good knife, sharp and strong, but the only down side is my belt loop on the sheath is tight, which limits the places i can put it on my gear other than a thin belt.
also, i would not pay that much for this knife, even though its good quality, i got mine
at bjs in a combo pack with the basic kit for
only 40!!!!!
great buy then

5 half good aiden - JUN 29, 2012

This knife is great for cutting i split my thump with it but the serrated teeth brake off but that is the only downside. nice job Gerber.

5 best knife of its size colton - JUN 29, 2012

this is a very amazing knife it will not break on you and just if youre wondering about the pumbel they fixed the problem so this is a very high quality blade and the built in sharpener and sparker is a great survival feature but hint hint you can get it cheaper at other places walmart/ebay/amazon/dicks/ and im pretty sure theres more places that sell it

Ok Knife, this is not what I would take to war with me by any means. This knife is good for camping and light duty, but like some others have said you get what you pay for and you can buy it for 50$ at walmart... other full on survival knives retail about 150$ ish.

5 MR sALLY - JUN 24, 2012

I buy this knife just for carry a nice looking survival tool, but I'm more than impressed, my bike get's broken in the midle of the forest, and I took the inner tune, my knife and a gallon of water to walk 38 miles out of there using this knife FOR EVERYTHING!!!! start a fire, cut wood and help me to take my butt safe, thanks gerber°°°

4 outdoorsman Robert Carey - JUN 23, 2012

Just an update on my knife. Still holds edge well, serrations are still intact, waterproof, my only complaints are the clamp that holds the knife in the sheath is loseining up and barley holds in the knife anymore, and the Velcro that holds the knife down is wearing out too. But overall the knife is superb it's the sheath that has a few issues. but i can still slice, chop, carve, widdle, and make fires anytime anyplace and i love it.

5 Great woods knife Adam - JUN 22, 2012

Everything about this knife is great. The sheath that comes with it is very cool. The blade is light weight and the finish it pretty clean to. The main 2 features of this knife is the sharpener which is a great idea to have it built in to the sheath and fire striker built in also with the stricker on the knife good idea.

5 early Father's Day Gift a wife and mother - JUN 16, 2012

Got this knife for my girls to give to their daddy and he LOVES it. Unlike others he likes the serrated edge, but hey, it's all a matter of taste. Feels good in the hand, comfortable grip, good blade, and very nice sheath. A good knife for him to take camping and dirt bike riding. And those on youtube poking fun at the whistle: take your finger off the air hole boys, and it'll whistle just fine.

3 my local knife store manager says a hawkes heillion will chop it in half. good enough for girl guides. (bear is thier leader eh?) - JUN 13, 2012

hello. first off, i think that this knife along with the rest of gerber's blades are thoughtfully designed with great handles and features, but thier product simply arnt strong enough to hold up to tasks you would need to do in a survival situation. this knife i could see would be great for scouts, who wont be hammering this blade though a log. seriously, i heard it has a 420 steel (so a 420A i guess) ..thats sad..i mean to at least call a knife good you need at least 440B steel.

Amazing knife! Sharp enough to use out of the box, but I would recommend sharpening even more once you get it. Ferrocerium rod works very well, best I have ever owned. One gripe I have though is the rubber grip is easily rubbed away.

5 Awsume in SA FJ - JUN 10, 2012

I'm from South-Africa and the knife works, and lastes here... If it can hold here it can laste anywhare.

5 Awesome! The Final Survivor - JUN 10, 2012

Best. Knife. Ever.

me: "come on mum let me get the knife"mum: "no way knifes are dangerous" me: you think I don't know that

5 austin james - JUN 5, 2012

the serrations are a bad idea but there is a version without and the price on the web site is about ten dollars cheaper at any outher store but over all a very good knife you can do almost any thing with it my hat is of to bear grylls

5 VERY NICE!GERBER!!YOU'RE MY IDOL!! danial - JUN 5, 2012

nice very like this knife...

5 awesome micheal - JUN 4, 2012

Very good knife has alot of good features that work well and hasn't gave me any issues.

4 Almost perfect Jack - JUN 2, 2012

This knife is good for hunting and camping. Used it also for 2 weeks in the middle of nowhere, in the wilderness of norway.
You can cut almost everything and even chop wood. And with the integrated sharpener it's always ready for action.

4 perfekt allrounder Jimmy - JUN 2, 2012

nice blade, good fire starter but the plastic is low quality

2 Serrations! Ahmad - MAY 28, 2012

Serrations on a survival knife! What a bad idea and by the way a serrated blade is a blade with disability.

5 Great Product! Great Value!!! VinceWp - MAY 27, 2012

Cant understand all the people who say the knife is garbage..... I have used mine to cut wood, hammer tent stakes into hardpan, filet fish, and cut a stuck anchor rope on my friends drift boat, I even used the flint to start a fire just for kicks (gonna just stick with the bic lighter method in the future) ....... I have a sneaking suspicion that most of the complainers are posers telling stories about dreams they have had, or they abuse the knife, (you can break absolutely anything if you abuse it)
This is the second Gerber knife I have owned, the other is a Gator gut hook deer hunting knife, I have been nothing but impressed with the quality and strength of both of them.

5 Very Good! Survivor - MAY 27, 2012

Really good Knife. Good steal and it´s very sharp!

5 GREAT KNIFE Ron Stengel - MAY 25, 2012

Bear really put some thought into this knife. If is prolly the Koolest knife in my collection. I LOVE this knife. whistle, sharpener, flint, etc. It feels so sturdy and very well made. I am buying one for each of my boys I like it so much. I paid 59.99 for mine though, not the 62+

4 Seisan Sei - MAY 24, 2012

This knife was a present for my birthday last January and tested it in the woods for batonning wood. It suprised me that it did the job very well! No complaints, this knife did the job. Quick to sharpen! It is a good knife to have it with you while you are camping or doing bushcraft.

2 survivalist smith - MAY 23, 2012

i bought this knife and quickly noticed a few things, it was very sharp (the dimond stone works great), and cut very nicely, but after the first use the knife's finnish started to wear off. the rubber sheath also had a tendency to hold onto dust and became pitted very quickly. the knife quickly got my disaproval when i managed to strip off the serationsduring normal usage. so what did i do? I bought a KA-BAR, and its the best blade ive ever owned.

some say the lmf2/BG knife can cut though anything, and that its a great knife, and the part about it cutting is true. however this knife lacks the ruggedness of the ka-bar. id say this knife is great for scouts or soft-core campers, but real men carry ka-bars or other legendary blades.

5 Epic Winston - MAY 22, 2012

It is great, feels good in my hand, and looks great. I haven't used it yet, so I don't yet know if the serrations do break.

5 Awesome John - MAY 16, 2012

This knife is awesome and very dependable

4 knife joshu@ - MAY 15, 2012

ok the pommel is a bit loos and the serrasoins are broken but sending in for warrenty i think thers @ new version thow should be better

5 survivor Jack - MAY 13, 2012

I love this knife! I have a woods by my house and my friend and I made a campsite with the bear grylls knife and the gerber paraframe. We made a A-frame shelter and a fireplace. This knife is hard to keep sharp but I found a system that keeps it sharp. Every day I use I get my step-dad to sharpen it that night. Again awesome knife.

5 Your Title Eric - MAY 13, 2012

This is a great knife. Period. I have nothing bad to say about it whatsoever and I would recommend it to anyone venturing into any kind of wilderness situation. It is tough, reliable, and it fits in the hand beautifully. Congrats to Bear and Gerber on nailing this Survival Series on the head, you have well exceeded expectations!

5 Zombie survivlist/author Roddy - MAY 10, 2012

This knife is perfect for just about any situation. It's durable and comfortable to use for anything from around the yard, to the campsite, to an actualy survival situation. For the experts complaining about a partially serrated blade it's actually pretty common on survival and utility knives both civilian and professional. The fire starter works great and will probably last forever. The diamond sharpener is super handy and a real space saver. As for the Xcore survivalists that throw away the priorities of survival pamphlet I see it as being incredibly useful as advice for a newbie or a refresher for someone experienced. In closing this is a fantastic knife, Bear and Gerber did an amazing job.

5 Your Title bombardierbob - MAY 9, 2012

This knife has nothing wrong with at all and don't understand why people who hate it is cause of who's name is on it. I own 2 and a couple other knives and they all are what they are intended for. When your in need of a good knife and your life depends on it, this is the knife you will want to have...

5 Out and about. Ivan - MAY 9, 2012

I bought the knife and can say it works as well as it looks. If and when you find yourself in need of a good knife for survival or pleasure this one I give 2 thumbs up. The knife performed well in all aspects and having fire and a sharpener on hand made life easier. To truly appreciate the knife You will have to try it out for yourself. Some people just expect to much out of a great piece of kit. MONEY WELL SPENT!!!

1 Outdoorsman Norseman - MAY 8, 2012

Saw this knife in the shop, did not consider buying it even for a split second.
One SINGLE thing ticked it off on my list as a POS poser item;
Serrations are mainly good for cutting rope,fabric and other man-made soft items... So why the heck put serrations on a survival-knife, on top of that in the area of the blade with most leverage where 90% of the heavy work is done near the handle, effectively hindering sharpening sticks, cutting branches and other types of heavy woodwork? That is what survival will be all about... For those who need a fancy seatbelt cutter with a tv-"stars" name on it I guess it`s a different story...

1 Mr Tony - MAY 8, 2012

serrated edge so poor i cant put into words how bad it is. STAY AWAY

5 seems alright james - MAY 8, 2012

looks good knife seems strong and sharp the sharpener looks pretty good flint big sparks that means FIRE!!!!!! and the sheath cool i am getting this soon and if you are looking for a good knife get it trust me. i like it

good job bear

good job gerber

5 great knife!!!! Hank - MAY 7, 2012

I have this series, it is a spectaular came razor sharp...very durable. Plus gerber is a very good brand. I live in the desert and we have very hard wood out here plus dangerous animals. This knife is a "must have" on you, not only when hiking out in the wilderness, but at all times. Because when you least expect it, you will be stranded and your knife will be at home. So yeah, I carry mine at all times. My pommel hasn't had any problems and I am a welder. I beat on steel with it. Awesome knife Bear!!! Keep them coming!!!

4 Easy to lose the small parts Jake - MAY 7, 2012

great knife used it for camping 4 or 5 times in the last year my biggest thing is the book fell out of the back and the lanyard broke, don't know how, just looked down after camping one time and it was gone it had to break to get of the knife but over great for me when I go camping

5 knife james - MAY 7, 2012

5 chris Very good knife - MAY 5, 2012

i think you shold get this knife iv hade it for a long time and its nerver faild on me so i think you shold get it

5 outdoorsman/survivalits pleasantly surprised - MAY 4, 2012

Oh and i forgot to mention how it even has a couple holes near the base of the blade in case you find urself in lion territory and need to fashion a spear.. for all of you "bear gryllsians" out there haha.. no but seriously.. BUY THIS KNIFE IF YOU LOVE GOOD QUALITY, COOL KNIVES!!!


5 outdoorsman/survivalist Pleasantly Surprised - MAY 4, 2012

whilst shopping for an upcoming camping trip I happened to stumble upon this little beauty, which immediately caught my eye. I do have to admit that I am a Bear Grylls fan but more importantly I am and have been a huge Gerber fan so the two combined seemed to be pretty cool to me. After checking out all the BG products left on the rack at Wal-Mart (most were apparently already bought out), I decided to go with this knife and am very happy I did. The firestarter was a huge selling point as well as the sharpener because if you have ever field dressed an elk or any big game you will know that unless you have an amazingly well crafted blade you will need either a sharpener or a number of blades to swap out as they dull.
Moreover, the thing I happened to like best about this product was the grip. The grip has to be the most comfortable knife grip created. very ergonomically pleasing and everything about the knife seems like it has the grit of bear and the quality of gerber.. all in all.. I say its a great buy for $50 you wont find a better knife on the market unless you're willing to spend a $#1T-Ton of money and it probably wont be as fun to hold as this or as nifty. I will continue to buy more products like this, if only the Parang had a stainless blade that would be in my bag yesterday!

1 Drenched wood beats this "Survival Knife" Mohit - MAY 4, 2012

This knife was the first fixed blade knife that I had bought. Two weeks after buying this knife I went for camping in the Himalayas. It was a very intermediate 4 day trek.
Day 1, I proudly take out my knife to collect some wood from the forest. It sliced and chopped through wood nicely.
Day 2, I notice that the serrations on this "High Carbon Steel Blade" were bent.

This knife is way too overrated.

3 Not a bad knife MartyWild - MAY 3, 2012

Handles well. Serrations are weak though. Tested chopping whitout serrations and it is not as performant as whit serrations... Guess I'll just sharpen them more often. Good price for someone like me that goes in the wild about 2 or 3 times a year...

5 Survivor Tyler - MAY 3, 2012

The knife is amazing. People will talk crap about this knife just because it has to do with Bear but the knife does everything it's supposed to. Since I got mine two weeks ago I've hammered with it on posts outside, cut limbs, gutted fish, started multiple fires, and just whittled with it and it hasn't given me a problem at all. As a matter of fact it has done everything with flying colors, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who camps or uses a knife on a regular basis.

5 Great Survival Knife Mike - MAY 2, 2012

Big fan of Bear Grylls, I think he's awesome no matter what his critics say. They're haters. That being said, I tried this knife out for myself by cutting some wood and using the fire starter to make a fire. I had read some reviews about the pommel breaking off, but the issue must have been fixed by Gerber and I have seen no problems with mine, though I will have to put it through its paces. I don't expect any problems. My favorite part about this knife is the handle. It is super comfortable and incredibly easy to get a good grip, regardless if you hand is wet or slippery. I have some serious camping/hiking trips planned for the summer and this knife will be coming with me wherever I go. I can't wait to really spend some time with it. In addition I think I will also be purchasing the fine edge version, just to have both. I highly recommend this knife to anyone who goes outside ever.

1 Did you say survival knife??? Range Rider - MAY 1, 2012

Not so! Weak blade, serrations broke. Cheap steel, doesn't stay sharp and chips. In fact, not sharp out of the box.
Not worth it is my opinion.

5 Mr Sammy Engholm - APR 30, 2012

Best knife ever, and surley it's tested, i have use it in the djungel and in the artic, and it is working perfect!

1 You get what you pay for Jimbo - APR 29, 2012

Really people? Did you expect this to be the ultimate survivor knife? At $60, you get what you pay for. Bear Grylls is a sell out and this knife is just marketing hype. If Bear had to go in the field alone and survive I GUARANTEE he would not bring this knife. All of you armchair survivor experts who have never been in a survivor situation and have little to no outdoor survivor experience are fools wasting your cash. You got all fired up watching Man v Wild and now you think you need a survivor knife and you waste $60 on a piece of junk. At $60, you get what you pay for.*Newsflash*: A good quality survivor knife is $150 - $250.
And she sheep go BAAAHHH

5 A Bear Essential Ben Greene - APR 25, 2012

I must admit that reading several of the sub-par reviews for this product made me cautious to purchase it, but I figured I would give it the benefit of the doubt. I own the basic BG Multi-tool and I was blown away by it's quality and performance, so I hoped that the same eye for quality was given to this tool as well. upon purchasing it and putting it through the ringer, I have to say, "Wow." This knife is beyond any other I have owned. The carbon steel look gives it a unique and gritty personae that you won't find in any other knife. The 1/2 serrated 1/2 straight edge concept on this knife is superb. Careful attention was given as much to the design on the serrated edge as the straight edge. Both cut through branches, cord, vines,and plastics like they weren't even there. The grip is confortable, which always a plus and often an overlooked feature. The Steel Pommel is awesome as well. It can pound in nails as well as any ball-peen hammer. The fire starter, both in location on the sheath and in functionality, is extremely useful and practical. The daimond sharpener was, in my opinion, one of the wisest decisions when it came to the design of this knife. Too often has a knife been more of a nuicance than a saviour when the edge began to dull. The sharpener is a life saver. My kids love the lanyard whistle, though blowing it causes my ears to ring for about a minute.

I carry this knife with me, practically, everywhere I go, I've put it through hell and back, and I believe that this is an essential knife for any outdoorsman.

Well done Bear Grylls! You truely know your stuff and are an inspiration for outdoorsman everywhere!

5 Outdoors danilo - APR 23, 2012

I can't wait to have one of this Gerber product. It's very useful for my activities, specially in the wilderness.

Good Job Gerber!

5 The Ultimate Survival Knife Zak L - APR 19, 2012

This knife looks as awesome as it performs.
It has the best quality out of all the knives in my collection.
I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking to buy a good quality blade.

5 KITCHING KARL - APR 17, 2012

real good knife very sturdy very durable never owned a knife with such precision and quality in all my days well done keep up the good work it also saved my bacon when i got stuck 50 mile away from home in snow christmas eve

5 Survival Enthusiast Lyndon - APR 15, 2012

Absolutely love the Bear Grylls gear. Especially this knife. The flint rod does create a generous amount of sparks and is great for starting fires. On the go sharpening is made easy by the built in diamond-sharpening system on the sheath. A must have for all Scouts or Survival Enthusiasts!

5 Enthusiest Mick J - APR 12, 2012

Ive Been reading reviews and comments for this knife for 3 days now and have come to the conclusion that many just have not researched the knife enough, and make comments that are based on thier expierience with the knife. Period. I believe that there are still some bad knives out there from the 'BETA' release. I see the dates here may be a day apart and one mans knife is AWESOME and stands the test. Next Mans Knife is Garbage and the pummel fell apart and etc etc. So...just return the knife and they will send you the FIXED and updated version, and you will be singing a different tune. I haven't 'Hammered mine' yet, but its been almost two years now since the 'FIX', and the manufact Number on my package is different than the one I see on all the bad reviews/comments, so im probably good. I don't want to 'Use' the knife until its needed. Im like a crow also, I like shiny bright things, and i have been holding this knife in and out of the scabbard and just admiring it, and feeling that, 'Yes...if Im out in Gods Country and Uh-Oh happens, I want this Knife with me...No Doubt. So haters...get a grip and rectifie instead of whinning like a man-child without having the real story...and the REAL KNIFE. Its A Beeeeauuutiful work of Art.....until i need it...then its a Survival Knife.

5 Awesome John - APR 12, 2012

This knife is awesome i recommend getting one

5 grow a set mike - APR 12, 2012

if you idiots knew how to sharpen a blade you would have nothing to complain about grow a set and learn how to shapen a blade

5 BEST KNIFE EVER Austin Dubois - APR 12, 2012

it is awsome and i love it

5 Dr Outdoor Enthusiast - APR 12, 2012

An incredible acheivment. This blade is rediculous. The rubberised grip works a treat and fits perfectly into your hand. Visualy, the BG ultimate knife is beautiful. When I tested this blade, I was very impressed. It handles batoning better then the Gerber Prodigy fixed blade (which looks and feels similar). The incorporated fire steel and diamond sharpener idea is fantastic. The sheath is very well created and is very well crafted. Don't put off buying the Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife till tommorow. Add to your cart and buy it now! Thanks again Gerber for a fantastic blade :)

1 Did You Guys Actually Use This Knife Jeff - APR 11, 2012

Or do you just think it looks cool. Pommel fell off hammering a tent stake, Handle cracked battoning small stuff. A complete dismantling of the knife in one night. Cool looking knife...but, best knife ever? I'd take a swiss army knife over this in a heartbeat. Sorry Gerber, You fell short on the product. Now lets see how you handle this situation when you get my knife in the mail. Review to come!

4 Knife Collector James - APR 9, 2012

The Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife is great , considering the price of 50 dollars comes with a FULL tang knife, a hardened sheath, firesteel AND a whistle. And all backed up by lifetime warranty.

The knife feels very solid in your hands, with the handle being very comfortable. The thick blade is very sturdy, and not to mention sharp. It is no KABAR , but it will do the job.

5 Mr. Hans-Jürgen - APR 8, 2012

the best Blade for Bowhunting

5 Excellent! Jason - APR 8, 2012

I have had the ultimate knife for over a year now, and I must say that it has proven itself worthy. It takes awhile to sharpen, however the edge retention is superb. While the knife is impressive, the diamond sharpener was not for one simple reason; the grit actually started chipping off. I would much appreciate a replacement diamond sharpener. It came in handy before it's defect, and I would like to have a reliable sharpening stone yet again. Overall, great knife and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a durable knife that is up to the challenge!

5 great outdoors man/hunter - APR 8, 2012

Great knife

5 great willie - APR 8, 2012

I've had many knives over time, but this one is by far the best. Everything you need in a knife is there. I think very highly of it and think all knife lovers should own one.

1 normal guy pissed off david - APR 8, 2012

This knife is GARBAGE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you take any comments on this as gospel listen here. Please do not buy this knife. I was expecting a very good Knife but the Knife isn't sharp out of the package. And two of the serrated points were bent. The blade wiggles in the handle and all around i feel like the knife is garbage. Bear shouldn't be backing this knife i would recommend you cancel your orders and everyone that is commenting on this knife being great check out anything else with a comparable price, Gerber used to be good quality now they have gone to the other side and decided quantity is better.
I would just like people to have an honest opinion of the knife because when i first read the reviews they all said the knife was great (seems like the site mite be adding there own comments). ALL IN ALL THE KNIFE IS GARBAGE AND I WILL BE RETURNING IT ASAP !

3 interesting JOSH - APR 8, 2012

I am happy with the flint and the handle but the blade is not as sharp as I was expecting.
I also partially agree with the unhappy comments out there.

5 Dependable John - APR 7, 2012

This knife is great ive used it in the wilderness lots it holds an edge well and starts fires great if i was in a survival situation i would definitly depend on it

1 Horrible! Freddy - APR 5, 2012

Dull, won't sharpen, cerration will bend, uncomfortable grip.
Not worth the money.
In all, I'll give it 3 negative stars.

2 ... joseph - MAR 31, 2012

this knife would be a great one if it could stay sharp... it gets dull fast and wont sharpen at all; but the flint works great

5 question steve - MAR 31, 2012

can the serrations be sharpened as mine have been completely destroyed but im afraid of messing it up even more

5 mega awesome poop - MAR 30, 2012

cool as heck mega cool great everything

1 unsharp blade morten barmen - MAR 30, 2012

Iam not happy with this knife.The blade is dull,and i can`t get the edge sharp.The tip of the knife is bent.The sheet is good,and the handle is great.

5 Commander Murphy - MAR 30, 2012

I love this knife, and would totally reccommend it, but I dont know what people are talking about maybe its just my personal standards but the knife was no where near as sharp as Id like it out of the box. Now its all sharpened up and perfect :)

5 Your Title John - MAR 30, 2012

Love this Knife! I have always been a fan of Gerbers and this is icing on the cake! A quality knife, great add-ons, firestater,sharpener, whislte, etc. The sheath has a very nice click in to hold the knife in the sheath. I liked it so much, I bought two, one to put away for emergencys and one to use to get to know it and it's strengths. A must for any hunter, survivalist, prepper or anyone who ventures into the woods!

4 Great Cameron - MAR 29, 2012

I really want to get this knife but it is way to expensive!!! It needs to be $40 to $50. Even that is high. Wish I could get this knife.

5 Gotto gt Ahmad1975 - MAR 28, 2012

I am not allowed to have knives so I give my friend money to buy them that's how much i love this knife I am even at risk of getting caught all for this knife

5 outdoorsman Robert Carey - MAR 28, 2012

already made a review but just saying my knife is still working like i just pulled it out of the box. the only wear and tear is the finish is coming off my blade (but i haven't owned a knife yet that hasn't lost it's finish) but other than that no damage so far. my fulcrum stick is wearing down but I've used it way more than whats necessary. i would still recommend this knife to any hunter, hiker, explorer, adventurer, or outdoors man.

5 charles want - MAR 28, 2012

want to get it .
it is so maddddddd.
+love bear grylls

5 Your Title chris lamothe - MAR 25, 2012

well i finally got out with this knife and i tested for a few different things like cutting small trees down/splitting dry wood on half and used a rock to hammer on the blade while chopping wood and the knife is very good, will be buying other bear grylls gerber equipment

5 Amazing Deal Jon - MAR 24, 2012

Great bit, nice sheath compared to the cheap cloth ones you sometimes get, like the click-in-place satisfaction when you put the knife away. Nice weight to the knife with a very comfortable grip. The fire steel snapped off of the handle, but I can replace that, not complaining considering I picked this up at a certain orange box store at a clearance price of $15.

5 HOW LONG! Saira de Silva - MAR 23, 2012


5 Scotland the brave Peter - MAR 22, 2012

Great knife, solid build with high quality extras.

Would be great to see an all blck version
; )

Thanks for keeping us alive Bear. Grrrr

5 Better steel Max LaPointe - MAR 22, 2012

On the ultimate survival knife needs to either harden the serrations or get a differnt type of steel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I use my tools what they Are used for and somtimes to the extrame but if it a good tool it should hold up, which is why i ask u to harden or pick a differnt steel bc the serrations are curling(Breaking down)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

5 Can't wait Sachin de Silva - MAR 21, 2012

I can't wait to see what really helps bear in all his shows and it looks awesome so far but i wonder if the fire steel is that good

5 Ultimate Knife Your Name - MAR 20, 2012

5 Price Nicholas - MAR 16, 2012

I thinks you should put down the price a little bit

3 price josh - MAR 12, 2012

gerber drop the price u will problly sell more

5 Fantastic knife Nathan - MAR 11, 2012

The Bear Grylls Ultimate survival knife is a knife that I could trust 100% in a survival situation. I have owned it for months and it has done everything that I wanted to do the way I wanted it to.
This knife is veeerrryyy durable, I have used it for the following; hacking, sawing, pommeling (hard objects) and spliting very hard wood.
The only down side I have for this knife is that the serrations can chip if you hacking hard wood with it, thereforee it makes hacking harder because the serrations take up most of the blade.

If you love camping, hunting etc. I would highly reccomend the Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival knife to you

5 best knife ever????? Your name - MAR 10, 2012

excelent knife, I use it for many otherthings than what it was designed for, it works great on gutting animals

5 Outdoor adventurer Adam - MAR 10, 2012

Carry one on me at all times and one in my bug out bag. Very useful knife. Use the striker instead of matches every time matches are just no fun after starting fires with this tool.
Blade could be better but that is why I always have a few backups on hand. Never hurts to duplicate and diversify.

5 Great! Matt - MAR 9, 2012

Awesome love everything except the ferro rod. It's a tad bit small and won't last long if you truly get lost but it'll work for 72 hours.

5 Aspiring Survivalest David A. Bennett - MAR 9, 2012

The Ultimate Fixed Blade is the best knife I've ever bought. The fire starter and diamond sharpener was a great bonus. But the over all construction of the knife itself is beyond expectation. The best Knife I've ever bought.

5 Ultimate indeed! Bruce - MAR 8, 2012

Simply put, this is the best survival knife on the market. Don't get me wrong, there are better knives on the market for individual tasks but Bear really thought of everything with this knife. The blade is very sharp and the serrations are more than strong enough to hold up against your typical needs. If you're trying to saw through tree, you'll probably widdle them away but fabrics and twine and other things will not do any damage. The fire starter is also really nice. It's not as good of a ferrocium rod as the one sold separately but it's still more than enough to start a fire. If people say it doesn't work well, they're just not skilled enough yet. The sharpener is also adequate. Like the knife and the fire starter, it's not the best sharpener around but good enough. That's ultimately what this knife is about. You can buy a top level fire starter sharpener, and knife for a sum total of $200+ easy. Or you can buy this ONE TOOL and spend a quarter of the price and have more than enough to survive.

4 Sweet as Knife!! New Zealand Hunter - MAR 7, 2012

Just got mine, absolutely fantastic. Very impressed with the flint, the thing throws a fireball. Something that could be done is take of the whistle and lanyard and put a Bear Grylls micro torch strapped to the handle instead. Just a thought!!

5 Owner/Operator Orlyn Riley - MAR 7, 2012

Great grip and steady balance! Just for a guy with large hands. Cuts like a dream rite out of the package. It's all so functional, resourceful and esthetically appealing as well. I think I'm ready to face all hell smiling with my superscoutleader and personal hero, Bear Grylles. Cheers mate! Great product once again Bear/Gerber

5 wow Your name - MAR 6, 2012

5 This IS the ULTIMATE knife!!!!!!!!!! Hunter - MAR 5, 2012

5 thank you scoutmaster! boyscout - MAR 5, 2012

i am almost 1st class, working on my 1st aid mb all i need is to start my survival mb
thank you again for that information that would really help

5 outdoors man Robert Carey - MAR 5, 2012

very impressive to me i love the grip, the blade is strong and holds edge well. my serrations are still intact after much sawing and paring. The whistle is loud and made of good quality plastic. pummel works well for flatting and tenderizing.i found the pocket book very useful too. the sheath and sharpener are very useful and can be harnessed to almost all of my load outs, and best of all it makes a mean spark with the fire starter. a perfect knife for me and my hobbies. thanks Gerber and Bear for this amazing tool. an outstanding blade for $50!

5 the man Dan - MAR 4, 2012

great knife read some reviews that said it was junk this and that i bout one and i tested it very vigoursly and it with stood everything i threw at it it even bayoneted a 5in round sapling down with it the fire starter works great only complaint the knife isnt vey sharp out of the box and the pommel work awsome dont worry bout people saying itll fall of i beat a 3in screw in to a 4x4 with it and it didnt even scuff

4 Good knife Collin - MAR 4, 2012

Very good knife. I put it to the test over a few days citing trees and stabing things. Made a spear, put it threw hell used as hammer. It took one hell of a beating but after that a week I was using it as a spear and the tip broke. But I recommend it. Just don't get exited and try to find out its limits. Good product

5 Bear grlys fan Josh - MAR 4, 2012

A good strong stylish nife that is really light weight and is good when I am on long walks just knowing it is there in my Bergen so if get lost or injured I no I can get help with whistle :)

3 a little high don't you think BG fan 101 - MAR 3, 2012

i want this knife i need this knife but its just too high we need it lowered

5 hmmmmm should i buy? Your name - MAR 3, 2012

i have been wondering sould i buy it? please give your apinion! Can i put this on by belt? thank you ULTIMATE SURVIVOR I will look on amozon :). i love how this knife looks.

5 VolsSurvive Kniffus Master - MAR 2, 2012

Just Like SurviveTexas stated this is a knife to treasure and to NOT use until absolutely necessary. I also have many other knives both pocket and sheathed, but to have a complete survival kit on your hip is something special if the situation ever presents itself, hopefully not. See you 12-21-12

5 SurviveTexas RIP - MAR 2, 2012

I made a short lanyard for the firestarter and attached it to the main sheath so if it pops out it wont fall to the ground.

4 military rod - MAR 1, 2012

I love the knife but the case rubs when you have it on your belt. The case is rough at the top

4 BG Ultimate Knife Paul (UK) - FEB 29, 2012

Great looking knife, nice weight and balance, the only two things i didn't like was that there were no instructions on how to sharpen it (would be nice), and the blade has been Blued and the instruction manual gives tips on using it to signal - the Blued doesn't reflect???
other than that I love it, very pleased with it...

5 A++++++++++++++++ Got one - FEB 28, 2012

Excellent quality, razor sharp (shaves) right out of the box. The most ergonomically designed knife I've ever held! Great features, the only thing I see that I don't like is the lanyard, too small, I could only get 2 fingers through it, not even close to getting my hand in it. Note to Gerber- in China (made in) they have much smaller hands (among other things) than the Western World!

5 Any Chances for it to be in India Parth Giri - FEB 28, 2012

Is it possible that by any chance i can have this in India.

5 Hunter Tim - FEB 27, 2012

This is the best knife i ever used!

5 Your Title ultimate survivor - FEB 25, 2012

i luv this knife! i just got it and has a great value deal! i recomend buying it on!!!

5 Your Title Your name - FEB 24, 2012

I love this knife and would recommend it to anyone. Had for some time use it in the woods alot. Very durable, regardless of what some people say about the pommel. Their first run of the the knife was not full tang which they have fixed now. If yours breaks simply email them for a replacement and you should get a new one! I stepped on my sheath, broke it. They sent me a replacement For Free. Fire starter fell out somewhere on the trail, They sent me a new one FOR FREE. Even when they were out of stock on the web page. LOVE all Gerber tools.

5 Take this knife in the wild! Florin Coman - FEB 24, 2012

This knife is not the sharpest knife in the world, the chheapest, the most beautifull, the strongest or the most durable! What I like more is the fact that this knife begs to be taken in the wild. I feel much better knowing that in my backpack is this knife, with a fire starter. I didn't bought this knife for some sort of collection. I intend to use it until it breaks. Then I will buy another one, it' not the most expansive knife on the market either.

5 Inspiring survivalist Aquariushill - FEB 23, 2012

I love this knife. The best all in one. I just bought mines from BJ's. It came with the knife and sheath of course. But also came with the basic kit. After taxes I paid $43.99. Definitely worth it.

5 There's no better knife Surviver - FEB 23, 2012

Just brilliant,I want it so freaking bad!just make the price lower please.

1 Quality manager Claude - FEB 23, 2012

Nice knife, but web site sucks on an iPad

4 Not Bad The Eagel Scout - FEB 22, 2012

I am an Eagel Scout and I need a good knife....I like this one but it is alot of money and the blade is fairly small.

2 BAMF PsyonicSurvivor - FEB 22, 2012

Bought an 11" long full tang, 6" carbon steel fixed blade with a sheath and paracord handle for a 1/10th of the price. The serations haven't broken, the paracord is infinitely more useful IMO than the whistle (which can be made from grass for $0) and a standard fire starter works great with it and doesn't have to be attached to the sheath, which I find very clunky. Dunno, I think there's way more value in ingenuity than the bells and whistles (literally!).

5 Awesome Jacquizz - FEB 20, 2012

I want this so bad. BA knife bear and gerber

5 mr bjl - FEB 20, 2012

Just brilliant

5 Strong and helpful Nachose - FEB 19, 2012

This is an incredible knife. Not only because of its incredible strength but the other mini features like the whistle and flint rod. Two thumbs up to Gerber and Bear Grylls on this fantastic knife!

5 Best knife Survival kid - FEB 19, 2012

I just got this knife and have already made 2 sturdy forts it's the best for hacking and cutting trees and every thing else

Definitely recommending it

4 Is this knife made in USA survivor - FEB 19, 2012

I just want to buy the USA ultimate knife

5 I want one survival boy - FEB 18, 2012

I've been saving up my money and looking at youtube videos night and day i saw every niche of the knife and i think its amazing but my only concerne is that the black paint on it comes off and it may or may not rust i don't have one but other people say its amazing

5 mr. michael - FEB 18, 2012

This knife is the best !! Have used it ruggedly since buying it and has never failed. BG products all the way !

2 Not a serious knife Peter - FEB 17, 2012

Don't count on this knife. The blade and the pommel are only held in the plastic handle by one pin each. If you didn't buy it just to play with in the living room, the pommel will eventually break off the handle as mine has.

5 only if jarrad - FEB 17, 2012

this would be ideal if it were smaller like 3.8 " long so that scouts can use it

5 maybe Survival boy - FEB 17, 2012

it probably is a diving knive since it is water proof and does not rost

5 Diving knife Frederik - FEB 17, 2012

does anybody know if you can use it as a diving knife.

5 awesome nathan - FEB 16, 2012

Very sharp! You can get it at Wal-Mart for $50!

3 p.o. jesse hughes - FEB 14, 2012

I need this replacement.... how is it out of stock at the gerber company website???

5 Just perfect Noah Frank - FEB 14, 2012

I have only 3 knives in my hunting pack. All 3 are Bear Grylls. Whin you hunt as much as I do it's good to keep a reliable knife in your pack. Wish it was a full tang.

5 EagleScout kyle - FEB 12, 2012

Im and Eagle Scout, i hunt,camp, hike, etc. I do a ton of major trips and this knife goes everywhere with me. I love it. The tools are useful, and easy to use, the knife i great weight. Good price, great deal!

5 humasheild BRUCE - FEB 12, 2012

best knife ever so easy to sharpen stays sharp love the sheath big fan of the serrations and i love the magnesium stick

5 Ultimate Survival Knife Young Bear Grylls - FEB 11, 2012

Great knife I love the fire starter,rubber grip,and the sheath but don't forget the great part about it the knife itself!

5 Newest Addition to Kit Grizzled Old Silverback - FEB 11, 2012

I've owned and used Gerber knives and multi-tools for many years, with no complaints thus far. As with any tool, if used and maintined correctly, it, it will give good service. If abused and neglected, it won't. It's just that simple.

I expect this knife to perform well within its niche. It's not an axe, a saw, or a sledge hammer - it's a knife. The extra features - fire steel, sharpener, whistle, etc. are useful additions I'd cary in my kit anyway, so it's nice to have them and the knife all contained in one place.

5 AMAZING Leslie - FEB 10, 2012

I have one and i love it. I take it camping and it is awesome. The sheath is great. The fire striker is very good. People how broke the end off obeiously dont know how to use it. If you are stabing paper that is like stabing a tree. LEARN how to use it.

5 Mr. Rohit Patkarr - FEB 9, 2012

It's a great knife! Perfect weight. Great design!

5 Great Knife. Guy - FEB 8, 2012

This knife is great!!! i have used it and it is one of the best knives i have used EVER!!! the features on the knife and the sheath are so handy they are extremely useful. :) :) :) :D :D :D :D

1 gandalf the grey frodo baggins - FEB 7, 2012

look I know this knife is really cool. But the reality is that the knife itself sucks. I bought mine a few months ago, I built a simple lean-to and the knife was ruined. after consulting a local knife maker, a found out that the blade was to hard. for a survival knife to really work it needs to be made of a softer steel, like a hatchet or a machete.

4 Mr. Cody W. - FEB 7, 2012

I love this knife, but. i have a few thoughts to go against it. The metal quality of the knife could be improved. The serrations have worn down on me, and just lately (Feb 7) the point of my knife became nicked from just stabbing a stack of paper. Other than the quality of the metal could be improved, i have nothing else against this knife. I love everything else about it. Props to Gerber for the knife.

I rated four stars, because the metal quality could be improved.

5 The ULTIMATE knife Siggi - FEB 7, 2012

i`m a young fan of the show and this knife is great. I tried my Dad`s friends kinfe it was amazing. This is the best survival tool you`ll need in the WILD........

4 Dad Darryl - FEB 7, 2012

When I first received this knife, the stitching on Velcro tabs on the nylon sheath was unraveling. I emailed Gerber customer support and they sent me a new nylon sheath. I’ve had this knife for about 3 months now and have had a chance to really use it. The fire starter is first rate and my 5 year-old son can easily use it. The blade is not only easy to sharpen but hold an edge well. The integral sharpener on the hard sheath can quickly put a rough edge on the knife, but is not good for fine sharpening (which is not its primary purpose). This knife has easily stood up to moderate hard use of building forts and shelters in the woods with my sons. I will recommend it and Gerber to anyone.

5 i wont one year 8 - FEB 7, 2012

i'm in year 8 and a i went camping with my brother that has this knife and i got to use it the end of the trip i new the knife i was going to by when i'm old enough to get one. best knife

5 Mr. Juan dela Cruz - FEB 6, 2012

I got this knife last DEcember 2011.. It looks good and I like the grip...I can't wait to use it this summer camp and test it how far he goes..

5 BOY scout and info JASSHARP - FEB 6, 2012

I dont have this knife but i used my friends. its really cool, i love the features on it, and on my boys scout they allow me to have it if i had one witch i will be getting soon

5 Scoutmaster Scoutmaster - FEB 6, 2012

Boyscout, if your First Class or up have your First Aid MB and are working on the Survival MB I think I would have to let you wear it.

5 hi rabbit hunter - FEB 6, 2012

i have read all the reviews and i really like this knife. it has everything. flint,dimond sharponer and an full on grip. it has a serated edge wich i really like and is an awesome knife. i rate it five of five.

5 best knife ever cajun - FEB 6, 2012

i have tried out many knives over the years and i think this is the best of them all.when i first bout it i didn't if it was going to be worth it but i would of regretted it if i didn't.Gerber Bear great good

3 outdoorsman B.daniels - FEB 6, 2012

It would be nice if the sheath came with a pouch instead of a sharpener.

5 SurviveTexas Rip - FEB 5, 2012

I bought this knife for one reason...Survival, not for everyday use. I have collected multiple knives of almost every manufacturer and I'll be the first to admit they all can break or wear down. This knife is here in case I HAVE to use it. One of the easiest things you can accomplish with a tool is damaging it. The most challenging is using it the right way and making it last. Thanks Bear!!! I hope I never actually need it to survive but its good to know its there.

4 stamina Mountain biker David Curtis - FEB 4, 2012

I ride my bike often and in the backwooded areas. Sometimes come across broken machines. Great for salvage, cutting wire, breaking ice. Never been in a desperate situation to use the Alpine signals or fire starter.

1 Not What I Expected!!! Sierra Hiker - FEB 4, 2012

As cheaply made as they come, this knife came in unsharp and broke on my second trip. The tang does not even go through the whole handle. What a shame. Drop this one Gerber, it's giving you a bad name.

5 Great Knife Chris - FEB 3, 2012

Just got it after drooling over it for weeks. Great knife the one thing I did not like was how the lanyard it didn't fit around my hand so i attached it to the fire-starter good solution.

5 why cant i get it? boy scout - FEB 3, 2012

i really like this knife, well i have never accually held it. i am a boy scout and they olny allow folding knives! why cant they at least allow this one?

5 Rancher Tap Duncan - FEB 3, 2012

I've had this for well over a year now, I use it every single day, and I've never had one single problem with it ever. We burn our paper refuse out here, and I use the fire steel to do that, at least 3 times a week, and it always works. I removed the whistle because I'm not lost, other than that, it's a damn fine tool. I also own a Gerber EMF I, and they are the same when it comes to performance.

1 SILO's Bassist - FEB 2, 2012

in a routine field test of my gear (if you dont feild test your gear you should start) i tried starting a fire with my Bear Grylls ultimate survival knife. A few strikes in, my fire starter breaks. no abuse or mistreatment, im not sure if it was just one of those 1 in 1000 are faulty, or it actually is a peice of junk. paying nearly $70 for a knife, and it not even being able to survive a basic field test is bad news. i am highly dissapointed.

5 great knife JT - FEB 1, 2012

its a great kife it feels really solid and it dosent feel cheap. Even the the sheath feels very sturdy. overall a very gook knife.

5 bear uses it in his shows now so it must be good bear fan - FEB 1, 2012

i want this knife it has really good reviews and bear uses it on the show now so it must be good.

somone said it wasnot sharp but it comes with a sharpener

4 Your Title Sambiase - JAN 31, 2012

My suggestion would be to have a LED lamp attached to it.

1 rippoff Ka-Bar Man - JAN 30, 2012

using bear's name to make money go to Ka-bar knifes for a non crudy knife

5 Must have knife Ty - JAN 29, 2012

I've been watching videos and reviews about the knife. Everyone says something different, but moslty positive comment. I'm just wondering if you can get replacement fire starter and sharpening stones. Other than that i'm most likely going to get one.

5 BEST ARMAGEDDON KNIFE EVER!!! Trent and Suzette - JAN 24, 2012


5 Your Title David - JAN 23, 2012

Bought this knife off amazon and i love it. It comes extremely sharp and just feels amazing in the hand. @Bearfan The first editions off the knife were hollow but gerber revised the knife and it now has a full tang connecting the pommel to the blade.

5 Knife Dan - JAN 23, 2012

i sooooooooooooooooo want to get one of those that knife is one of the best knifes i have ever seen and its got a spark lighter how cool is that i am sooooooooooooooooo saving my money up for that

5 Overall Great Knife Amature Bear Grylls - JAN 22, 2012

I have had this knife for about a year now and its great. its the best survival knife I have ever bought. Also the handle is not hollow. it is very solid.
I use it all the time this is one heck of a knife!
I'm a hunter and I've used it on some animals and it works great. I also take it with me hunting for survival reasons. If that day ever comes. haha.
I also wish to some day become a survivalist like Bear Grylls himself so I go on little survival trips, kinda like what Bear does and it fits my every need.

5 Amazing Yory - JAN 22, 2012

Cant beat this knife at all for the price ts amazing. good for camping and for scout troops

5 Good I like kids - JAN 22, 2012


4 My questions Athensy - JAN 21, 2012

To Bearfan: The handle is not hollow, but quite solid.

I have two questions about this knife:

1. The sheath is made in China, is the knife is made in China also?

2. What grade of high carbon stainless steel is used to make this knife? 420HC or anything else?

5 Good knife B. Rainwater - JAN 20, 2012

It has it's ups and downs, as do all manufactured knives. The firesteel works without issues and is rather quite comfortable to use. The sharpener works well to keep a hair shaving edge on on the fine edge. And the fine edge has not been damaged yet, although the serrations apparently cannot withstand the test of cutting bamboo. They began to chip quite easily on the hard wood. At that point I stopped using it. The manual is quite basic, and the air to land rescue diagrams are helpful and easily obtained in a survival situation. I don't see a need for a pommel on a knife, for I never "hammer" anything in the wild, but you have one anyways. The only complaint I have is why in the heck is there a lanyard on a knife, if it can't fit around your wrist... Other than that fact, the whistle is fairly loud for it's tiny size. I like the coloring on the knife by the way. It's a good knife. Just not as durable as I thought it would be.

5 deltafltsgt Your name - JAN 19, 2012

i love the knife the fire starter has an amazing spark

to answer Qualits's question no i the handle isnt hollow it it appears to me that the steel from the blade goes through the middle the handle feels great in my hand i hope this helped

5 Your Title Big biff - JAN 18, 2012

The handle is solid. Plastic with integrated rubber, shank goes all the way though. The knife feels really good in your hand.

5 Awesome Fellow outdoorsman - JAN 17, 2012

I love this knife! It is perfect for all outdoors use. I would like it if you could buy a replacement sharpener though.

1 Brewyet Chris - JAN 17, 2012

This knife broke in no time. The blade is GREAT. The handle is lacking in strength. The but end of my knife broke off!! The tang does not go all the way through the handle!!! The end cap is "glued" in. Not reliable at all. I can't imagine Gerber turning out junk like this. I would have NEVER expected the tang to stop in the middle of the plastic handle. I've carried a Gerber multi-tool for the past 17 years. I had a great deal of respect for them....until now. Gerber, if you are listening, please make this good and save your reputation. Thanks....Chris

4 Good Survival Knife Zach - JAN 17, 2012

I have used this knife in all different climates. It is a thick blade and cuts really well. Sometimes I like the serrated edge and other times, I wish it was not there. Also, the serrations seem to wear down a bit against hard wood or coconuts. However, the serrations cut stuff quickly, which can be life saving, and the knife holds up really well. I like the two holds to make into a spear too. Also, has a sharpener and a fire starter that work pretty sufficient. The only down side to the knife is the fact that when swimming in salt water, the corrosive water can seep down into the handle. Easy to flush out with fresh water but hard to oil. Not too much of a big issue though. All in all, if I could only have one knife in the wild, this would be it!

5 medic i'llrescueu - JAN 17, 2012

I bought this knife for one reason - to try and break it. I cut up an old 600 foot length of 1/2 inch rope into 4-foot long pieces, i hammered 300 nails into a 2X4, jabbed the knife into a tree for a half hour, resharpened the knife using the sharpener on the back of the sheath, and then used the fire starter until I wore it down. This is a great all-around knife. My only complaint - lose the safety orange coloring and offer the knife in black, tan, and foliage green.

5 Comparison ZsombeX - JAN 16, 2012

Hi there,

I have a question about the item:
I saw in different places this knife and I saw that the same knife have differente codes. Here it has 31-000751 and in other places I saw 31-000902 to. What is the difference beetven the two code(because the price are different, and in pictures are the same) ?

5 Quality BearFan - JAN 15, 2012

can anyone who had bought this knife tell me about the handle, I am curious as to whether the handle is hollow or not

5 good liam oxberry - JAN 15, 2012

5 cant be beat!!! derek dustman - JAN 13, 2012

5 looks good Euan - JAN 13, 2012

ive been looking to get this knife for a while it looks really good and i hope it lives up to the good reveiws.

5 Nice Dogukan Tosun - JAN 13, 2012

Really nice knife

3 Meh... Andrew - JAN 13, 2012

Not a bad knife. It's a little cheap in the quality department. I think you'd be better off with a Ka-Bar; I have the Becker BK2 and it's about the same price and twice the knife. Minus the little bells and whistles of course.

5 Farmer Jesse - JAN 11, 2012

Great Knife, reallyg enjoying this one

5 US Navy homer franklin - JAN 11, 2012

the BEST knife for servival i have ever owned.very functional knife. worth ever $.


the full size pocket knife is extremely factory sharp. I use it on a daily basis here at Fort Riley and ihavent had a problem yet...Nice rubber handle and lightweight makes it easy to pull out of my sheath to accomplish any task i have at hand. Thank you Bear Grylls and Gerber.

1 Best knife ever!!! Myles brown - JAN 10, 2012

This knife is the bomb

5 Amazing Daniel - JAN 10, 2012

5 working good for survival. nikia - JAN 9, 2012

the knife and the fire starter are really doing goodas you see it on youtube

watch the movie and anjoing

5 hunter / hiker jack - JAN 8, 2012

Love this knife ! I hunt , fish and hike through the moutains of west virgina with my family and i won't leave home with out it no matter if it's only for a short distance . I cleaned deer ,fish made traps that i have learned off the bear grylls shows . I have put this knife through sever tests . It has stood up to everyone . I would like to thank bear and his crew for all the useful knowledge and i proudly own 90% of your products

2 Don't Go There! Hiker Dude - JAN 8, 2012

Good design, bad steel, not sharp, doesn't stay sharp, cheaply made. How much is your survival worth???

5 New and Improved AL - JAN 7, 2012

The new model is great. Obviously the first thing I noticed was a thicker 1/4" orange band around the pommel which makes the thing solid as a rock. fire surface on back of knife is also larger. Cant wait to start some fires

5 Collector Drew - JAN 6, 2012

What a great knife. First off I'm not a fan of serrations, but with that being said i still love this knife. The firestarter works great, as it throws a great spark, and it makes greeat fires. The angled sharpener makes sharpening a lot easier. Being this impressed with the overall quality ofthis knife, I am expecting to order to order the fine edge just to add to the collection, as well as some new fire startes.

5 ssgt l david - JAN 6, 2012

have many knifes from gerber and this is one i takewith mein the wild weather im justhiking or going out for a week haveone im my car disaster bag and one to use while out does rust quite a bitbutdoes retain a nice edge even after cutting fire wood for a week but as long as i clean it right after its ok i have used this knife for many things this is hands down better than any SOG but feirce comp with the ka bar but for the price well well worth it LMF is aboutthe same knife and is amasing to THANK YOU GERBER AND BEAR FOR AWSOME PRODUCTS

4 Multipurpose Fixed Blade Boon Kaalvoet Thysie - JAN 5, 2012

Well constructed and sturdy. Wide tang prevents fingers from slipping when knife is driven hard. Have made Braaivleis fire with the Flint and steel. Heavy durable blade but due to high carbon concentration will not only take and retain an edge excellently but also rust sooner. So sharp out of the packaging that I was able to shave with it. Good fixed blade Pigsticker :-)
Well done Gerber!

5 sick as kinfe daniel - JAN 5, 2012

almost started fire
cut many things

5 best knife ever zachary - JAN 3, 2012

great knife i wish that the flint did not go as fast

5 Modern Bushman John - JAN 1, 2012

Upon receiving the knife, I tore open the blister-packed knife and finally, I was holding the actual knife in my hands. To my surprise, once I got past all the Bear Grylls logo everywhere, it’s wasn’t a bad knife. The grip, weight, and feel of the knife felt pretty good. The first thing I noticed was the weight of the knife. At 14.7oz, the knife, complete with it’s loaded sheath, was relatively lightweight. When wore on the belt, it’s unnoticeable. Overall, the sheathed knife didn’t look too disco (aside from the signature logos). The gray and black plastic/nylon sheath with the safety orange accents gives it a nice look and easier to spot during low light hours.

The knife itself has an overall length of 10″ with a 4.8″ high carbon stainless steel drop point combo blade. The blade is sharp out of the package and ready for use. The blade has some type of dark brown/blackish coating on it, I’m guessing as a protective layer....

4 Canada Canoe Evan - JAN 1, 2012

I first saw this knife in a Canadian tire, I was surprised that Bear got his own knife. I thought that it was common knowledge that his show was fake. But then a friend of mine got it, and I was impressed. We used it for building a lean-to. The knife held up very well, My favorite part of the knife is the weight, its well balanced and has a nice blade length. I have been told the fire starter can break. But the built in sharpener is handy. Also the fact that it is bright orange is handy in case you dropped it in a pile of leaves. I would advise this knife to even those who are not Bear Grylls fans.

5 the sharper kid joe - JAN 1, 2012

How does the sharper work other than that great knife.

5 Judgment Survivor - DEC 30, 2011

It is a very great knife, and I am very glad to have one! The problems the fisrt generation had is totally gone! One thing I would like to point out, is that some users have complained about the serrated part of the knife being damaged after very little use, but this has not happend to me!

5 Bloody Awesome Mate cfoster - DEC 29, 2011

First off awesome customer service had a problem at first but customer service help me with that.. knife is truly well made... sharp and solid.. sheath the best... diamond sharpener works with all knifes.. knife holds solid in the holder does not rattle... fire starter cant comment have not used it but i am sure bear gyrlls would not send me out in the wild with a garbage fire starter... awesome product... up next ultimate survival kit ;)

5 Army Reservist Adrian - DEC 29, 2011

Knife is solid, I used to have few classic KA-BAR's but didn't hold military regulations.

This knife is well made, pommel is helpful but grip tightly when hammering.

Fire starter is effective, however ferrocerium, does tend to expire quickly- use sparingly.

Fine point is quite sharp- angled sharpener makes life even easier.

I actually removed the whistle, and attached the set sheath into my belt- makes my life easier.

5 BG SURVIVAL KNIFE OMG MonsterEnergyN1TROUZ - DEC 27, 2011

OMG! What a knife I must say. When unboxed this survival product, I was so happy in knowing its great features. An amazing nylon sheath which was extremly lightweight, annd also had a great diamond sharpener on the back which becomes another handy option if your hiking and want to take little in your pack, instead of packing another sharpener. Also to mention the high standered fire started locked into the sheath. Ive already used this for fishing, camping, hiking and day trips. This is a great fixed blade knife and very handy to have. My mate and I go fishing and he has this knife also and says the same great stuff about this knife like me. I beleive this knife comes higher than any other knife such as the

Got this for Xmas, and have already used it to start some fires. Knife is durable, and works. Very sharp, and the built in sharpener works good on all my knives. Nice that we can also get a replacement fire stick when needed.

5 incredible knife collector - DEC 27, 2011

if you value a knife of incredible value, then this is the perfect knife for you. theres a reason Bear Grylls backs this knife. Its the best. Period.

4 only 1 bad thing about it Hunter Lindsay - DEC 27, 2011

i got this as a christmas present and I really like the knife except for 1 thing... when i was out cutting small branches from tress 3 of my serrations broke off and i have 1 bent serration, and it was dull out of the box when i first got it. other then that its a very good knife and me and my survival buddy love it

5 Deer Hunter Jeff - DEC 27, 2011

Love the knife, sharp, great grip, flint is a life saver, and whistle is very cool. If this knife had a compass it be ultimate

5 Quading, Camping Canada William bondy - DEC 27, 2011

I haven't had a chance to test the Fire Starting ability but I will try to come back in April. cutting branches, sharping Hot dog sticks. whistle is a great addition in the country I live in, scares animals. It really feels like you have a Defence weapon in your hands feel good to grip. Extremely sharp. Can't to try to attempt to start a fire with it. Velcro to hold flint is very key or you are going to lose your starter!!

5 Hiker/snowshoe/firefighter Jason - DEC 27, 2011

5 Gerber Dusty Boy - DEC 27, 2011

Just got this for christmas. Haven't used itin the field yet, but I only am going to use it for fishing (guting, line cutting, killing) so it wouldn't be that tough on it. I like the feel of it the weight for me is just perfect. And the features are well laid out. My dad said he had a Gerber when he was young and said that it was quality and thats why he bought it for me, But in summary it is very sharp out of the case and the sheath is well built, its a very good knife.

5 Your Title broke - DEC 26, 2011

The best knife I've ever owed every real man should own one

5 jeremy outdoorsman - DEC 25, 2011

This is a great knife for beginners. I read all the reviews on the knife before buying it and most reviews said it was really good or it was a piece of crap. The people who decided it was a piece of crap actually have good reasoning behind their ideas, but also they overlooked the fact that they like their knifes and know alot more about high quality one and are comparing them to this one. Its a great knife for beginner knife enthusiasts but a not so good choice for the pros. If your a pro you might want to save up and buy you a better knife. Even though after stating that its probably not the best knife for pros, don't dis the knife beginners, its made by Gerber. its one BAD ASS of a knife and if you do decide to buy it, I would recommend to get it from a store who supply's the knife because i got mine from a bass pro shop for 50 dollars instead of buying it from Gerber for 62$.

5 survivalist commando - DEC 23, 2011

brilliant knife it has a very good quality steel and its very reliable I would recrommend it to everyone and all, although mine didnt come out of the package super fast but it the best knife I have ever handled

5 Jgs0624 Justin - DEC 23, 2011

This knife is great. It has everything i might need in any situation. I havent used this knife yet but is really sharp. I got it for christmas and the first time i took it out of the sheath i cut my finger, definitely nof for kids but a very good knife. Also the survival guide is very helpful!

this knife is awesome,the flint works great, so does the sharpener i love it

4 First and second generation? Ron - DEC 22, 2011

I noticed the fire strikers on the back of the blade itself is wider in gen 2. Also gen 2 I believe comes in a box, not that tear apart packaging. Please correct me if I am wrong because I really don't want my pommel to break off if I have a gen 1.

5 Fisherman Jake - DEC 21, 2011

getting one for christmas and cant wait to go out with it. i have the scout series and love. it works great on gutting perch.

5 Camping Matthew - DEC 20, 2011

The knife is a sturdy durable and hefty survival knife! I use it when camping all the time! It has actually saved me in a few situation. I love it. I have over 200 knives in my collection but this one is one of my favorites! I congratulate gerber on a job well done.


5 outdoorsman stewie - DEC 20, 2011

this is an amazing knife it is durable, strong, and the fire steel works great the case is nice it works very hard for ya and not really and complaints

5 Hunter/Survival leader Dominic - DEC 20, 2011

Knife is great except for the fire striker location. I know 2 people that lost their striker due to it not being additionally secured. I added a small nylon cord to the end of it. If it was turned around the other way it wouldnt get lost. We all were in the same brush on a survival training exercise. I really enjoy the knife otherwise.

this knife would be awsome if it had good hard steel to with stand some use. when i first used this knife the edge didnt last 20 minuts but i love the design of the knife

5 Great Knife James - DEC 19, 2011

Such an awesome knife! does everything and more that a knife should do! I am however a LITTLE worried about how long the elastic handle strap on the sheath will last...everything else seems very solid but that elastic strap seems like it might tear in half if the nylon sheath is bent too much around a belt while wearing it in horizontal position..other than that no complaints!

5 Very good knife. Gentleman - DEC 18, 2011

It's a very good and its a pleasure to work with. The only this thats not so good about this knife is the large rope-cutting section on the blade. I'm very happy with it and and it's a great knife if your going to the woods!

5 Hunter/survivalist Hunter - DEC 17, 2011

great knife, bought it about a month ago and hasnt failed me in anything... but i would recommend the fire starter be turned upside down just in case so it wont fall out, and the whistle be attached to the fire starter instead

5 Camper, Kayaker, Outdoor Adventurer Gerald Vance - DEC 17, 2011

I LOVE THIS KNIFE!! It is perfect and I'm proud to own it. It serves my adventures well. I have read the reviews on this page and operator error seems to dominate the negative reviews. An important element to surviving is common sense. This knife is a tool to aid in survival situations, it's not going to make your camp coffee in the morning. STOP WHINNING.

3 Harrison Harrison - DEC 16, 2011

the knife and sheath are high quality. the drawback is the sharpener. the sharpener is flat which means you have no way to sharpen the serrations of the knife. also my firestarter fell out on the trail. you cant currently purchase the firestarter replacement.

5 U.S. Marine Sergeant (Retired) Casey Johnston - DEC 15, 2011

Gerber, Bear, and Fiskars truly Thought of everything with this knife. IT IS A SOLID KNIFE. This thing cuts through Camel bone right out of the box! Also The Diamond sharpener integrated in the back is beautiful. I appreciate the sheath ergonomics for left and right hand users who change their load distribution often; not to mention an around the back belt option. I will surelly be pummeling the wild with this knife for MANY years to come. THANK YOU!

5 john Great knife - DEC 9, 2011

ive heard it is A GREAT KNIFE


Great knife one of the best I have ever bought. I use it all the time the one thing I don’t like is I used it so much the Velcro on the sheath to hold the knife sewing I coming of and my fire starter snapped in half from using it to much but all in all it is a great knife. THANKS GREBER AND BEAR GRYLLS

5 Albertson, Jeff - DEC 8, 2011

I agree, I like this knife very much. It was sharp out of the package but I don't think it was sharp enough to cut arm hair or anything. The fire starter is very cool and I keep taking it out of the sheath and doing stuff with it. I'm not a knife expert or anything but I feel this is a good buy. I just wish I had more things to use it for besides wearing it on my side like I am doing things with it.

5 Your Title militaryclark - DEC 7, 2011

I love this knife! My kids got it for me last fathers day (great kids) I have chopped down 6" trees with it, cleaned small game and built fires with it. I have used this knife more then anyone else, the only complaint I would have is I can't find replacement fire starters as I used mine up. This knife has become a constant fixture on my hip when ever I go farther then the back yard and with my lifestyle that's almost every day.

4 Nice knife ! McCoy - DEC 5, 2011

Just picked one up today , definitely better quality than I expected . This knife has some nice weight to it , sharp out of the box. , feels solid enough to do what others have put it through . I can't put the thing down , it had a very good feel for a knife .

5 one of my best knives Vesa Ersta - DEC 3, 2011

This knife kicks some ass it is tough and durable, and comes really sharp out of the box. the serrations are tough and they cut ropes and wood very easily. i m glad that i did not buy the fine edge version. it holds the edge very well, and using the sharpening stone in the sheath makes it razor sharp. you could use it to shave for example. the whistle makes a pretty loud noise and its super small, and its not in way. greetings from finland bear! im really proud of this knife!

5 Great Andrew - DEC 3, 2011

You know i'm not really sure what everyones problem with it is. this knife is perfect there is nothing wrong with serrations, the pummel, the blade or anything its perfect!

5 camper michael - DEC 3, 2011

i just bought the knife, razor sharp out of the box. It removed the hair from my arm, just to check the sharpness. The fire starter took a few strikes out of the protective bag but it works. I have yet to try the the starter attached to the knife. This is the best knife bought recently. Thanks guys.

3 Couldve been better Jose Calderon - DEC 2, 2011

I am content with the knife after a month of use, however... Stainless steel? Without the grade of the blade? How much carbon content is in this thing? I've been a loyal Gerber fan for more than a decade but I have noticed their quality start to decrease.

5 Best Ever! Hanno - NOV 29, 2011

Got this as an early Christmas present... And I think it's the best gift I ever got. Thanks for making a really good (and TOUGH) knife mr. Bear and Gerber.

5 Your Title Jason C. - NOV 28, 2011

I don't understand what is wrong with everyone elses knives. I just got one and it is perfect. The steel is strong, the serations are still there. It was sharp out of the box and has stayed sharp. If your knife does not hold an edge then either learn to sharpen it better. It comes with a diamond sharpener anyway.

3 Consumer Aaron - NOV 27, 2011

I've found the knife to be decent. It doesn't hold an edge very well and the sharpening block is basically useless. I like the concept and design, but the steel could be better. The fire steel is cool, but not the best. A shock cord for fire steel retention would serve the knife well.

1 No Way!!! Out4life - NOV 26, 2011

This knife is just a ripoff. The blade was dull out of the box, some serrations broke while battoning. Total waste of money. Nothing "Ultimate" about this overpriced knife. Lose this one Gerber!

4 Redisign Rory K - NOV 26, 2011

Hey If you guys could make another version of this knife with a stronger metal, redesigned sheath and move the whistle to the firestarter that would be awesome!

4 Your Title Joey - NOV 25, 2011

All-in-all it's a great idea. The fire steel does go down rather quickly as all do so they need to offer a replacement to fit into the sheath. PLEASE come out with another version with harder steel. I would deffinately pay some extra money to get a better metal. The steel is just way too soft for any medium-hard work.

5 Gerber Man Todd - NOV 24, 2011

Just got this knife and it definitely the best knife out there. DO NOT understand the teeth falling off, used mine on deer antlers and none fell off. Great tool and added bonus is the fire starter! I would tell anyone from city life to out in the country to have one ready for whatever happens! GREAT PRODUCT BEAR AND THANK YOU!!!!

4 Ex-infantry Justin - NOV 23, 2011

I reallly like the Bear Grylls ultimate knife but I do have one problem with it. Every time I put it in the scabbard sharp, it comes out with the edge dinged up. You guys need to look at re-engineering the scabbard. Otherwise it's a great little knife!

5 Camper Matthew - NOV 21, 2011

I bought this knife in April 2011 just before I went on a 3 week trip to Yellowstone and other places out west. I wanted a good knife to take with me and I definitely put this knife through a testing phase. I literally used it to cut through wood that was 6 inches in diameter by using it as a wedge and hammering the top of the blade with a smaller piece of wood. It worked perfectly. It is a great knife and I highly recommend it. All of the other bells and whistles of the knife make it a great camping tool.

5 best knife ever Travis B - NOV 21, 2011

i bought this knife for a scout camp. i love it. it has the best blade i hav ever used. i do like where everything is exept the whistle. maybe it could be moved to the fire starter. also i have worn my fire starter out, is there a place that i can buy them so i dont have to buy a completly new knife set.

This thing rocks, the other night I went searching for coyotes with my friend and we heard something in the bushes and we took it down with our KNIVES! I can use this knife for pretty much anything.

1 Dark Days Chris - NOV 18, 2011

This knife is junk. My serated teeth all broke off by simply cutting through deer antler. I cannot understand how this knife can be consciously labeled as a "Survival" knife, an "Ultimate" knife, Stamped by Gerber, and finally stamped by Bear Grylls. I am thoroughly dissapointed. My trust in the brand Gerber will forever be tainted.

1 Terrible Chris - NOV 18, 2011

This knife is absoluetly horrible. I was so excited to get this Bear Grylls "approved" survival knife. Though as I put it to use, I found that this knife should NEVER be put in a survival pack. For starters, when I used this knife to chop through materials, the serated teeth completely broke off. Oh, an as i am sure you have found other places you need to make sure you get the new version of the knife, because the original ones where not full tang and the butt of the knife is pron to fall off. I was greatly saddened by this knife. Until this knife I held Gerber and Bear with great respect. They should both be ashamed for passing this knife off as a "survival" knife.

4 Your Title Your name - NOV 15, 2011

The knive is pretty good but when I pulled it out of the sheath it had sratches on it. th sharpener is in an ideal place and the fire starter makes good sparks othe than the sraches on the knive I can pretty much put the knive to good use.

5 Needs replacement fire starter andrew sheppard (Newfoundland Canada) - OCT 4, 2011

this is a fun knife. I use this knife every day because I live in the woods and im always hunting and it comes in handy for lighting fires and the blade is easy to sharpen well worth the money

2 bear, its needs some quality control checks, as well as a better hardening process. JS, NY - OCT 2, 2011

the grind is not even straight on the plain edge, and like FATIGUEMAN said the serrations are weak. I was just whittling some soft pine when the serrations chipped and broke. to go from bailey knives to this!? I really thought out of anyone, you would kno

Awesome. All i can say. Perfect for every task and adventure

5 Awesome Knife!!! Mike - OCT 1, 2011

Great Knife, Its sharp out of the package. Great shape. Love the soft grip handle and all the features. Sheath is nice also and has a soft touch finish to the plastic. Does Gerber sell replacement Fire Starters for when they wear out?

1 Rip Off!!! Fatigueman - SEP 29, 2011

Horrible blade. Serrations broke. I can get a better Buck knife, a fire steel and a stone for less than $62.00.

I am impressed with everything gerber but this knife. should have come with a "If your not happy" guarantee and i would have sent it back. fire steel wouldnt even stay in the case like its supposed to.

5 average user Donald - SEP 18, 2011

Ordered the knife it came quick and looks and feels great. No issues with the serrated blade as some have posted or any other parts I think it will be a great knife for years to come.

5 Managing Director Haworth ME@Africa Bernard Mouawad - SEP 18, 2011

It is a good Knife, but would like to suggest changing the way the Fire Starter opens. Currently it opens from down and in I my opinion it should be from changing its position the risk of loosing it will be reduced...i have lost mine during a

5 Well Done Bear Tyler - SEP 18, 2011

This is a great knife at a great value. Gerber is trusted brand and all aspects of this tool are reliable.

1 Your Title Soldier - SEP 17, 2011

I bought this knife to take to some survival training. i noticed right away that the knife was very dull. also after only 1 day of use three of the serrated teeth broke off. This knife is a great example of a good idea with poor execution. I have many ger

1 Waste of money! BoyScout - SEP 16, 2011

Not sharp. Serration not needed. What are you buying??? An expensive fire steel with a knife on it.

5 Son of UDT Chief - SEP 14, 2011

This is a survival knife, not a tactical knife. If you drop you blade in the water, you will welcome the colors. The Farro rod, whistle, survival guide and rescue sigs might save your life. Well done Grylls.

5 great knife qwerty - SEP 13, 2011

Every thing about is great but the serrations are easily bent.

4 Needs to back to durability board Coulter Buhler - SEP 11, 2011

The first day i bought this knife i ripped the stitch's out of the velcro and had to resew it back. Then a few days later i tried to strike the flint across the knife and it broke in half. Even though it can still strike a fire i now need to find a replac

1 Very desapointed!!! Timonel - SEP 11, 2011

The knife came in with a bent serration. The non serrated area has poor sharpness.

4 Great Value Rocky - SEP 9, 2011

Shaving sharp out of the box. Great deal online. Very good package for the price!

Wish they had a non-serrated version.

5 Prior Military Kenny - SEP 6, 2011

Well crafted tool, for all purpose use from fishing,hunting,to surviving. Gerber always produces quality at affordable prices.

5 Would've Bought Two A Guy - SEP 5, 2011

I would have bought two if they were black and grey instead of grey and "orange". :)

1 Not so awesome... Guppy - SEP 4, 2011

I purchased the knife today, out of the box I noticed right away that the sharpness was questionable. The serrations take too much of the blade and one of them was even slightly bent.
Overall, I would say that a company making “Survival Knifes” is

5 expert woodsman Jason P - SEP 3, 2011

This knife is one of best . Look no further you won't be disappointed. I researched many different brands and types of survivor type knifes. The ultimate is a buy for the price and features. Thank you Gerber and Bear Bravo!!!!
