Bear Grylls Survival Series Grandfather Knife
You probably owned a classic pocket knife as a kid and maybe your father or grandfather kept one handy. Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls’s adventure knowledge come together in our Grandfather Knife. Based on a knife that was passed down from Bear’s grandfather to his dad and then to Bear himself, we’ve honored the classic style and utility of Bear’s knife by designing ours with 7 utilitarian components while maintaining the vintage appearance of his original knife. The Grandfather Knife is the quintessential do-it-all pocket knife with the benefit of modern construction.
Equal Parts Utility and Adventure
Like a good hand tool, the first thing you’ll notice about the Grandfather Knife is its comfortable heft and easy handling. It weighs half of what most multi-tools weigh and embodies the essence of pocket knife: equal parts utility and zest for adventure. The tool selection is simple by design, offering what you need to save the day at the picnic when there’s no wine opener in sight or to adjust the throttle on your mower without making a trip back to the garage. The fine edge blade, corkscrew, flat and Phillips head drivers, small file and all-important bottle opener are easy to deploy and give you flexibility in your moments of need. At 3.75 inches long, the closed knife is only slightly bigger than a disposable lighter. Still, you get a 2.75-inch fine edge blade, big enough for substantial tasks yet compact enough to carry daily.
It’s a Daily Driver
The Grandfather knife disappears in your pocket until you need to put it to work. Like a perfectly weighted skipping stone, it feels great in your hand, too. The rubber-molded grip adds to its easy-to-hold shape and offers a little added security in cold, wet conditions. Don’t let the knife’s vintage look fool you; it’s meant to get used today. The fine edge blade is easy to sharpen and there’s a lanyard ring for adding a small strap or hanging it from your belt.

Good looking knife, but my flathead/bottle opener tool will not open. I can open all other sections with my nails just fine, but when I attempt to open the flathead, I have to get a mini flathead just to open it.
This is a awesome addition of BG'S Gerber stuff very handy tool but by the way i thought they stopped making these because the show no longer exists
I love it. Reminds me of a knife I had years ago. Got at Christmas from the wife, took it hunting, all over outdoors-perfect companion.
My first look @ your UST videos. Found you on Gerber's site. A great review of the BG Survival Kit. I loved that you sunk it in water with a brick ! It was very helpful to see all the contents of the kit and to hear your suggestions for enhancements or additional gear that might make it a little better. I also liked the part about who the kit might be well suited for. Thanks!
