Bear Grylls Compact II

Surviving the unexpected is about being prepared, and the Bear Grylls Compact II Folding Knife exceeds the standard. Few people know more about survival than Bear Grylls, ex-British Special Forces officer, experienced mountaineer and respected survival trainer. Taking advantage of Gerber’s decades of experience and Bear Grylls’ adventure knowledge, the Compact II folder, built in Portland, Oregon, gives its user the ability to engage with the surroundings in perpetual survival mode.

The next generation of survival pocket knives, the Compact II builds off of the original to make it the best-of-class back-up survival pocket knife produced by Gerber. A more robust handle with rubber over-mold and a prominent finger choil offer solid application. With a fine edge 420HC steel blade, easily opened using the nail nick featured along the bevel edge, the Compact II folder is always in survival mode in the hands of its user.

Finger jimping on the top of the blade and grippy rubber over-mold along with an ergonomic handle design means the Compact II won’t slip in even the roughest conditions. Its lock-back mechanism keeps the knife safely open during use. This same lock-back structure allows for equally easy closure, even while wearing gloves. The lanyard hole gives extra flexibility in carrying options. The Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide is included with this knife, furthering its usefulness and potential life-saving utility. The Compact II folder is so dependable, it’s Bear’s new choice for a back-up survival knife!
