I bought it. I had to file down the ridges on the handle, because they were too sharp, but no big deal, as I really liked the look & feel of it. But I am totally pissed that the belt clip was so lame, that it kept popping off my various belts, I only wore it a half dozen times before it popped off my belt, unnoticed by me. So I've spent this whole week looking for it, and no luck. I am pissed. I bought a Schrade since, and the belt clip is so much better .... it has never popped off. I should have spent a bit more on the Bear.
Good utility knife but if you need a sharp blade choose something different. My third Gerber knife that I've gotten that I've had to sharpen from the factory before I've even used it. I think Gerber may be losing a little bit of its quality control.
its got good feel in your hand but the second you cut somthing with it the blade becomes super dull which pretty much makes it a paperweight.
Best knife I've owned. Small and light weight, carry it everywhere and feel "neked" with out it. Never had any real problems with the sheath, but I did notice that it has a specific groove that you need to be sure to guide it into correctly, but it was a matter of days before it eas sliding in and locking wiht ease. No problems with maintaining a sharp blade, but I did grade the edge to my liking and I sharpen it once or twice a week. Great knive, have had it for five years and its still an amazing knife, thanks Gerber!
Had the same problem with the sheath. At first the knife would not come out, and now it falls out. I fixed it with a strip of grey duct tape wrapped tightly around the exit point of the sheath, to compress the locking notch. You shouldn't have to resort to this.
Fantastic knife, awesome new design. But the sheath is crap. I carry this knife everyday. I recommend this knife to everyone.
pocket clip fell off gets dull after a few cuts on cardboard i like the design but i wish they used better quality materials and a better heat treat on the knife.
Great knife for the price. I use it as a everyday carry. Its Durable, light weight, and sharp out of the box (I did get mine sharpened more however). Also my clip hasn't fallen off like others have said in their reviews. Buy it.
The knife is well built and I do like the unique design. However, the sheath is absolute junk. The knife originally did not want to come out of the sheath and now it will not lock into position in the sheath.
ive had 2 different epics and now have to return the 2nd one because the clip keeps falling off im starting to lose faith in finding a cheaper reliable fixblade
Ive carried the epic everwhere from work to hiking in the mountains around my home.I've had no problems with the knife or the sheath.very sharp blade,has cut everything from plastic ties and shrinkwrap to wood and meat.a+
Overpriced but i have no problem with the serrated edge. Don't own it but I'm disappointed with news that the clip is falling off
I like the knife. but the clip also fell off. I carried it on duty as a back weapon but only for a short time. Now I have a good knive with a useless sheath. I thought Gerber was better than that.
I do wish that this was made without the serrated edge, not everyone wants that in a knife.
pocket clip fell off
it looks alot like a nice knife but its over priced
This is a handy little knife. If you've looked for an inexpensive fixed blade, but found some too large or small, this one is just about right. The bottle opener gives the bottom end a palm-filling size, but this knife doesn't come off bulky.
The Epic has a different handle type made of Textured Glass-Filled Nylon vs the Basic’s TacHide, the Epic has a bottle opener on the end and both have similar snap in sheaths.
This versatile chrome-molybdenum stainless steel blade features a textured nylon handle, a serrated edge, a blunt tip, an integrated bottle opener, and a locking sheath that also sports a reversible pocket clip so you can carry it on right or left side — which is really handy if your other hand is busy holding a beer or fighting off a hungry grizzly bear.
