got this knife as a birthday present a couple years ago. I love it! super sharp and the orange handle's hard to lose track of
loooooks so coooooooooooool
When I recieved this knife, I was thinking it was a nice knife. I opened it a couple times but discovered one of the washers was loose from the blade. It came out an took awhile to get the blade off and the washer back on. Whatever. It is an awesome knife with really good grip and sharp blade.
I got mine on a trade from a friend for a $14 dollar knife
Do this knife have framelock? :)
Great knife for the price! Guessing it's a 420 high carbon steel and pretty durable. Serrations are deadly sharp and the thumbstuds are nice to have too.
My first Gerber and this knife is very pro. and comfortable
got it a yr ago still sharp i use it every day and its amazing
I gave one of these to each of my grandkids and they also cut everything in sight. Family doesn't return my calls anymore but WOW what a product.
I loved this knife and it was all I carried until it was stolen from me and I had only ever had one problem with it once when the thumb pins fell out and it was a quick and easy fix.
I do recommend this blade
Love this knife it is my favorite knife I have had yet. I recommend this knife to everyone.
i POSTED A REVIEW THAT GAVE GOOD COMPLIMENTS TO THE KNIFE BUT AFTER THAT I DROPPED IT ON MY PORCH AND THE STUD BECAME SUPER WIGGLY AND I FIXED USING SUPER GLUE. I STILL SUGGEST THE KNIFE
This knife has held up really good. I have put this knife through every kind of test I could think of. I've started fires, batond, threw it at trees, chopped sticks, carved, hammerd it into a tree stump, and stabbed a block of wood. And it has passed all of the tests. the only thing that I did not like was the thumbstuds, they broke in half. over all its not a bad knife.
Good for the younger generation I gave one to each of my granddaughters and they cut everything in sight
heard it was a really good knife from survival tips on youtube
its a really nice knife
It is a really great knife for a your first suvival knife, I am really pleased with it. The only thing that I wish was different was if it would float so I wouldn't worry about loosing it.
A best buy knife
Great survival knife .
It's greatest feature is definitely
The ability to fold into a compact ,still
Durable survival knife!
The only problem I had was when you put a lanyard on your knife you can't fit it in the sheath as easily.
i really like the knife really cool i really recommend it for a next step from a smaller knife
i got this knif a while ago. it was great for a while. The blade is great and stays sharp for a while. If you sharpen it well it can have a good edge. But the one thing about it is the handle. It is not built well at all
When i got this knife, i wanted to see how good the blade was i hacked down a piece of wood 2 inches thick. it when through in no time. i agree that the sheath isn't the best. but it keeps the knife study. if you need a great reliable knife, this is it.
The knife is amazing and the sheath is good too but the iner liner of the sheath could be different but over all great product
The knife was sharp as a razor out of the box, felt light and nimble. Felt fairly sturdy and reliable. After 4 months now of owning this knife I am getting away from this POS. it holds an edge for about 2 days, the DIRT CHEAP Winchester knife steel holds an edge better and longer than this thing. the thumb tabs broke and fell off by simply opening and closing the knife everyday for the last 4 months. The screws holding the handle to the blade came loose so I had to lok tight them back into place and jb weld the thumb tabs back on. The serrated edge has been difficult to get sharp due to the soft steel it simply rolls and creates burs that clearly won't cut, more like chizzels through material. I'm a fan of gerber and I always thought gerber had some wonderful steel but this thing was a disappointment. When I needed this knife THE MOST out in the woods in an overnight camp out armed with my pistol, my BG Folding Gerber and a jug of water the knife started to fall apart on me LUCKILY I didn't need to stay longer or else I would have been screwed. Understandably I should have had a better more substantial knife with me, needless to say the knife you will be most likely using will be the knife you have on you at all times. I liked the grip, loved the blade, lived the colors. HATED the soft steel, HATED the Velcro instead of a snap, HATED the cheap 2 piece plastic handle. Junk. FIX YOUR KNIVES GERBER.
It is my EDC knife it is good and Lightweight. but the sheath SUCKS IT NEEDS A POCKET CLIP! preferably on the back of the handle as hie up as it can go
Great knife, I have gone on many camping trips with it,like the description says, serious blade,compact,foldable and out of the way
Started off awesome! After 6 months the sheath no longer stays closed, hold the knife just fine, just a bother. Lost its edge fairly quickly along with one of the screws.
The knife has a lot of miles on it now. Had to replace the sheath when the velcro crapped out. Would love it even more if it was all fine edge (hint hint). It's logged a lot of miles so far...
the is a great knife because it never gets dull also it is very compact heavy duty knife
The serrations broke after batoning some firewood. The sheath is terrible, I ended up just making my own.
This is the best knife I've ever had but the sheath just sucks and I can't find a different one so I always just carry it in my pocket without the sheath
good strong knife with great sheath,i love it
i really LIKE the knife compact and reliable
i dont know if the joint axel is strong and can stand some PRESSURE..
it is a survival blade has THICK blade
but i want to CUSTOMIZE it iwant to be a TANTO edge ihope i will be great
Just got it the other day all I have to say awsome kife 5 Stars
i just buy it yesterday.i just saw this knife its nice and compact...use everyday at work....super sharp ihope it last its sharpness.
Great knife, extremely sharp. Very handy, I find myself using it all the time. The sheath is not very durable.
Bring the knife to work with me for cutting rope and cardboard and such, knife has worked amazing. But the belt pouch needs to be a snap close, this Velcro is garbage.
your my hero
folding sheath knife is amazing
what a pieve of junk loses constantly sharpness to be sharpen AFTER EVERY USE even the lightest
Awesome knife. Easily unfolds without even having to use the studs. I look forward to using this while camping.
This knife came razor sharp out of the package. It was hard to open with one hand for the first few days, but after you open it every day for a week or so, you can open it easily with one hand. It's been almost a year since I got this knife, and there is no movement in the blade (I didn't really put it into really hard use, so I don't know if It would loosen the blade very badly or not if I did so). I don't like the orange plastic on it because it feels like a kind a plastic that would crack if I accidentally dropped it on a hard surface. I'm also not able to get it back to that razor edge now no matter how much I try to resharpen it, but it still has a very workable edge. I barely even used the serrated edge, but I'm seeing dents in the edge, so the serrations aren't that great, but they were pretty sharp at first. Overall good knife; I carry it around almost everywhere I go.
One of the best knifes I ever bought... I am considering to buy the rest of the collection now.. I just love this blade !
i had the knife for about 2 months before the sheath got wet and dirty and the Velcro will not stick together anymore.. the knife doesn't fall or move its just more of a pain when the flap is up rubbing in to my side all day. i had to stop wearing it and switch to a diff knife.
1 word awesome I have had this knife for a couple of years now and I absolutely love the grip on this knife. All thought I was not very impressed with the velcro on the sheath. All
in all it's a great knife. ☺
great blade, sturdy in hand. I cant say anything bad about The Knife as is.. BUT call it a construction flaw or metal flaw.. It lost its sharpness and started corrosion in under 6 months of use,, basically a season of camping.. so for 3 months it was a great knife.
I haven't had enough time to really comment the durability, but this is a well designed blade that feels great while in use. I love the vertical belt loop as well. I regret losing my old tactical, but this makes that lose a little less painful.
Excellent knife! I got it for my birthday 2 yeas ago and i only need to sharpen it now. An all around great knife
I've got this knife recently in Malaysia. It's a sharp knife. I punctured a hole in my bolster when I accidently dropped this knife from only a 10 centimetre drop. Tough knife for a folding blade. There's not regret in getting this knife.
Got it as a present, impressed with the light weight and love the grip design. Cant wait to test durability.
I had a Gerber Gator (serrated) knife in 1996. Loved it but lost it. Fast forward to today Jan 13 2013; I picked up this Bear Grylls folder at Wal-Mart today out of the nostalgia I still had for the Gator. I felt compelled to write this review after reading so many negative comments online about the Gerber Bear Grylls brand. I'm happy to say that the quality and price for this knife is amazing. I have some higher priced assisted openers that aren't quite on par with this lock back. This is quickly becoming my favorite EDC knife. Any plans on utilizing the FAST technology in this awesome knife? Assisted opening and a pocket clip would make this the perfect knife.
I just got this knife and I must say I love the grip on this knife. Great serrated edge, razor sharp blade! This will be one of my favorite pocket knives. Thank you Gerber! Bear Grylls keep it up. I'm getting the Ultimate Knife soon as I'm very satisfied with Gerber.
Ive had mine now for over a year now.I've never really used it.it is kept in my backpack for emergency. It has a thick sturdy blade,great solid click when opened.I have no doubt this knife would skin deer.I now use for a carry knife.I am considering the ultimate or the Lmf2.good job Gerber one of the best knives made for the money
This is my favorite knife. If there are any people wondering if it is worth the money, I can tell you now; it totally is. I love the shape of the blade! The blade is sharp and great for whittling and other camping activities, and the serrated edge is great for sawing. It is also great for everyday use.I highly suggest this knife. Overall, I love the knife, but I wish it came with a clip, a fire starter, and a sharpener. Thanks Gerber for another AWESOME knife!
I got this this knife today ($29.99) and I am absolutely beyond satisfied with this knife. Excellent job! The sheath needs a hard plastic insert to aid in knife removal because of the non-slip grip. I cant wait to get another Bear Grylls Gerber product.
Great quality but the fine edge does not come sharp at all but nice grip hard hard plastic paint does come off blade if you scatch it but great knife for hunting fishing camping and all house needs!
This knife has a very strong locking mech. It has a stout little pouch that fits snug. The weight is spot on in my opinion. Will carry from now on.
Had this knife for about a year and a half, and have carried an abused it every day since. The edge looks like new, and there is literally zero slop in the internals. This is the pocket knife for me, both out in the wild and everyday life.
This comes EXTREMELY sharp. I used it to skin a deer with this year and have already chipped the blade by accidentally touching the bone. This has more to do with the quality of steel used than anything else. My cheaper knives do not chip if I accidentally touch the rib cage.
Overall it is decent but not worth the price.
This is a great knife. Lightweight, razor sharp out of the box, excellent balance. Holds an edge well and sharpens fairly easy. Couldn't ask for more from this knife. And as always, the grip is fantastic!
i brought the one with a clip but i put it on my belt and lost it the first time i used it with the scout group im in, i am gonna buy another one soon it worked realy well and never failed me :)
I love this knife. I keep it on my duty belt as a last resort. Great looking knife and strong!
i think this knife is very good i love the grip on it fixes right in you hand perfectly, this knife is very sharp i think this knife is great for basicly for anyone. i love the case its strong and wont break if treated not right. the only thing i dont like is that the knife has a little book let that wont show anything if wet and eaither way dose not show how to do stuff just shows things you can do.good knife
This ultra... Heavy duty knife/god's right hand
just became my new friend. I've been using this for a long time now and i still use it. i've been trying to torture it, but i think it has been torturing me
i got this as a gift and it seemed good enough for a day hike or whatever but as soon as i hacked a bit at an aspen branch several teeth on the serrations chipped and the insides of the serrations bents and dented. buy a ka-bar. i really wanted to like this.
This is the toughest most dependable knife I have ever owned by far.
Very good knife. Bought it this month for deer season and it stood up to the test. It was tough enough to gut, skin, and debone a deer. And the best part was the handle. I never once had the knife slip.
this is one of the greatest knives I have owned. The problem is the knife sheath stitching that goes on the belt, came off within the first hour of wearing. had my wife restitch.
Great Knife! I bought it and it shaved 4 inches of my leg hair. Razor sharp, durable serrations. I used it to skin a squirrel and it still isn't dull! Fantastic knife. Great job Gerber!
i have had this knife for at least 6 months and i love it i kind of noticed that after sharpening it the blade seems to wear down and i wish they would make a straight edge version
i just bought it and i am very satisfied!great metal,sharp blade , great handle ,and very steady
really good knife sharp good grip. the only problem is the safty button it in a weird place
This is the best knife ive ever had its great
this knife is great, sharp, and tough. the sheath is strong as well as light
I dont have this knife yet but im hoping to get one, i hope its worth how much money it is. But one thing i see is that alot of people baton and it breaks the knife so i suggest just chopping.
wonderful! i thought this knife was good to start with but i skinned a deer(my fist) and it was amazingly effective and efficient! i recommend this to anyone. but the sheath is a slightly different story, the Velcro is frayed horribly and i haven't had it 9 months yet... i have used a lighter to repair it as best i could and i already need to again... would be better with a metal snap. other than that the knife itself is 100% legit, 4 of 5 stars
this is a really good knife for a few day in the woods camping its a great all rounder
My knife is a great knife for people with a serious blade good for skinning,gutting,cutting
I would recommend this knife to a young boy or scout it works great. unbelievable knife
I got this knife as a first knife bought by my dad. probably the best folding knife ever. its so worth it
If you're a hunter,fisherman or hiker this is a great knife to have on you.
i have had this knife about 2 years now and cant complain about anything ive used it for skinning hammering cutting widdling etc. one of my favorite knifes and my favorite folding knife
Got it for Christmas and wear it everyday in pocket even though it is a huge knife! Great knife! Will get another when this one fails! Wish they had a non serrated version though.
got this knife for my birthday last month and have already used it for many things. i love the sheath and the color of the handle. holds a good edge too. awesome knife
Thank you bear and gerber for making this knife. I had it for over a year and only had to happen 2 times. I use it in the woods and I use it as a hunting knife. I skinned two deers with it and I am impresed.
The best knife ever owned period
got this knife for my birthday. really like the color of the handle and the rubber grip. seems to hold a great edge. i highly recomend this knife.
I have to admit I was really looking forward to getting this knife. But that excitement quickly diminished the moment I unboxed it. I noticed right away the thumb stud was loose and is literally about to fall off. I could excuse this if I had been using the knife a lot over a period of time but not right out of the box. Come on Gerber step up the quality control.
The knife is amazing for everyday and survival use Gerber knives are the best
I've owned this knife for about 6 months now, and I still get all excited when I get to use it! I carry with me everywhere and it really does feel reassuring on my belt or in my hand. Tough as hell and doesn't let me down. My 1st Gerber product, but sure as hell wont be my last!
I pursued this knife in a dangerous situation indeed worth
i took this camping and it is a boss i use it for wilderness survival at my camp ind it was so awesome but it got some RUST on the blade i am kind of angry but i just emailed or what ever to Gerber and hopefully they will fix that
Its an amazing knife it works great
i love this knife my friend has one and im getting one today i cant wait
The knife it's self is good but the Sererations broke after batoning thru some wood. No more Sererated gerber knives for me
I am a huge outdoorsman and this knife has not let me down yet (and it porbably wont) the grip on this thing is amazing...and the blade is super sharp and holds a nice edge............all you people saying this knife sucks yalls are probably fake, because this knife rocks
i like this knife because it has an awesome grip and how sharp it came i also like the sheath because it is nice too carry it does not stay extremely sharp but ti still holds an edge
It is an awesome knife but I think gerber should use a better steel because one of the serrations broke and one is bent but I love this knife it kind of holds an edge but it is still a good knife
Im happy with the knife, although the blade really lose the fast, havent used the serrations too much theyre still razor sharp!!
Overall its great but it seems the quality is sporadic; my knife host no problem regarding folding or tip sticking out just a bit when folded, as others seem to experience.
I can only talk for myself: This is a knife I carry every time I work or going kayaking or camping for that matter and though i havent sharpened it at all for 2 years ( yea i know its about time...) it still gets the job done!!
Definitively a trustworthy blade!!
this knife has seen everything and i am only 13 years old nice and compact and easy to carry on a belt
I love the design and it has great quality. This is an addition to my knives collection!
i strap the sheath to my back pack straps and carry it with me where ever i go, just so i have a big blade on me. ive never had to use the knife in any situation other than cutting p-cord. but the ascetics of the knife is amazing even the sheath is something to admire. i give this knife a 5 out of 5. i hope i never have to use it but at least i will have it if i need to! and gerber upgrade your steel
the first day of owning this knife my family and i went on a hike through the Smoky Mountains, and i climbed two huge trees using this knife to support myself.
14 years of age
Pretty fair price, good desing and quality,good grip. Looking forward to buying it =)
Like this blade a lot.
gerber please make the whistle replacement
The knife is very useful, as a 16 year old explorer (scout) i have used this knife for numerous things such as building a shelter, producing a fishing spear and making a raft which sank! and yes i have yet to improve my skills!! However the knife is still extremely reliable, the serrations are long lasting and the knife itself is seriously strong. Gd job gb:)
This knife has let me down. I have used proper maintenance while owning this knife and have only seriously used it two times. The steel is cheep and so is the finish it wore away and minor rust developed on the blade after I used it to cut up a old pool liner. If you want a seriously good knife look at a sog or a benchmade, sorry gerber your loyal customer was not satisfied with this knife.
this is kinda like a compact machette with a good grip. it feels good in your hand, but not the thing you're cutting up. my first gerber knife, and also my best.
I love this knife it hasnt failed me yet although i snapped the tip of yhe blade
Very nice Knive
but a lot of replecate this model in Thailand
This is a great knife and it has not seased to amaze me definetly one of the best knives i own and is great if you dont want the full sized blade but something as good!
ever since the knife came out i wanted to get one...
my knife is falling apart and I needed to get a new one so I got this knife... I take it everywhere with me and use it every day!
I am your biggest fan and i love the show I was so happy when the knife came out cant wait to get the game!!!
I hope it come out in fine edge version but i think im gonna ask or i can have one or buy myself
Nice program Bear
This is without a doubt one of the better knives I have owned. It is durable and reliable and it has yet to fail me! Excellent buy if you don't want to get the full sized sheath knife.
This looks like an awesome knife I havent Bought one yet but I will
An excellent everyday carry knife. Small and easily concealed yet strong and razor sharp. Can be used for just about any job you need a knife for and is just as sturdy as any fixed blade knife. I definitely reccomend this to anyone looking for a good folding knife.
i just got this knife and it is just fine. but i dropped in once on gravel and the plastic around the clip broke and now the clip won't stay in the same spot! Horrible id say
This is a great knife, but I wish it came with one of the emergency whistles like the other survival knives.
I've lashed the knife to my hiking pack. Works great!! I also use the knife when I go sailing. Great for that because the blade doesn't rust and the serration is great for cutting line in the event of an emergency. Great Knife over all.
This is a really good knife. It is a great option if you want a larger medium sized folding knife. I've had this knife for a couple years now and have really put it to the test. The knife is strong and has so far handled very minor battonning quite well. I have never had to tighten any of the screws and there is no wobble. The only major flaw I have with this knife, and I have heard this in many other reviews, is the quality of the metal of the blade. Though it is very sturdy and thick, it looses its edge pretty fast and the serrations got eaten up fast as well. But if you know how to sharpen and you do it regularly, its not a problem. All in all, I haven't had a need for any other knife
I must start by saying this is an incredible knife and has served me very well so far. I like how light weight it is and it's not to bulky either. It is a very sturdy knife and I really like the locking mechanism on the back. Very practical for everyday use and it even looks awesome. But having said these things there is a few things that could be better. The hole at the bottom should be a little bigger to tie a slightly larger cord to. Also the serrated edge is on the wrong side for right handed users, when cutting with this edge from a right handed perspective it isn't exactly ideal. Other than these two things it is an all around incredible knife.
This knife is sweet my friend owns one and he and I both love it to death we even tried battoning with it and it held up. I already have a good edc blade but will probibly pick this up sometime in the future. So heres my question why so much bad mouthing its a great knife they all are go buy one!
they look so dang cool
I love this knife ! This knife has been put through many tests and has taken many beatings and has survived ! This knife has become my new EDC !! Buy this knife because you will not be disappointed !!!
I love this knife. It is large, like the ultimate knife, but it folds and is easy to carry. Bear, you did an awesome job when you made it.
love the knife! Its better than any other knife, no matter the job. Sturdy and sharp. A+++
Seems pretty great so far, but I would love to be able to add a clip option. Sheath is not bad, but for utility work (to which it is very well suited by size and strength) I'd love to be able to clip it to my tool belt.
awesome knife, I love it, it is large
Love this knife!!! It came out the box super sharp. The handle is great you get a good grip when if your wet. It's really light too. I plan on getting all the Bear Grylls knives and tools
I love this knife.I put it on the end of a stick and killed a cat that somehow got under my house.great knife
I love it, I just got it a week a go and have used it on a camping trip and it holds up wonderfully. I would recommend it to anyone!!!
this is the best knife ever. I had to get this because i'm bears biggest fan
This is the best knife I have ever had it feels so good in my hands I have so much power now!
Great knife and came pretty sharp. Had to lightly grind a place on the spine to strike a ferro rod. Works great! Like the horizontal carry on sheath. Serrations work good, but I still prefer a plain edge though. Great feel in hand and nice balance. Will probably add some jimping to spine for easier carving. Overall, great knife combo!!
this knife was my first bear grylls item i ever got. i take it everywhere i go, including camping with my boy scout troop. the entire knife is well made. i have never been dissapointed with the performance of the knife. my only problem was that the velcro on the sheath came off. i was a little bummed, but i contacted gerber and they sent me a new sheath free of charge. dont listen to the people who say this knife is bad. great knife
Knife works well is very sharp but on certain materials dulls very quickly not to be used on card board and could use a larger lanyard hole and maybe a forward hole so it can be tied to a stick as a spear but other than that amazing knife
i think that gerber should produce all of the bear grylls survival series in fixed and folding but mostly fixed so it can be an excelent bushcraft/ survival knife and much more usable.
Awesome knife, no give in the blade, serrations hold edge really well and its pretty much indestructable. I've used this knife to cut through loads of branches, used it to make a spear and carve arrows and it works SWEET!!! Buy it.
i bought this knife because i thought it would be good for boyscouts. (its pretty much part of my uniform) EVERYONE in my troop thinks its a good knife. good assembley, sharp when i got it (it also sharpens VERY well) this is problaby my favorite BG knive (ill see when i get the ultimate survival one) but right now this ones my favorite !!!
Does it come in a fine edge version????
Great knife for the price,I use this knife everyday for work, I cut sheet rock, 1 1/2 and up rope allday. Pry with it, and just beat the snot out of it and it's holding up so far. I've had it now about 8mo's. It also has been very easy to sharpen. Very study knife, no play in blade what so ever.
When this knife finally give's up on me I will buy another one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
good blade, but very poor assembly, I have three other knives in this series and this is certainly the worst of the family! ... disappointed ;-(
I bought this knife and it was amazing, It cut through almost everything. Very compact design makes it easy to store and the sheath
Is made extremely well
I love this knife a lot! I disagree with those who said the blade isn't good. I have built two very sturdy forts already with this awesome knife. If any one is considering buying this knife they should. The fantastic design and well structured build of it is superb. Bear Grylls and Gerber did an excellent job on this well crafted knife.
Great knife comes sharp and is super sturdy
I got this knife as a birthday gift and i love it. its does everything i need and more.
The knife is perfect for scouting and outdoor activities. My Fellow Scouts and I Love it.
The handle is really good, but the blade is really awful. The teflon coating destroys the whole look of the blade. Really nasty blade.
Very sharp & very sturdy. Would love to see a version with a seatbelt cutter &/or gut hook...
it dosent have a pocket clip does it?
Great knife but would be better IMF it was a fast
its graet hevy duty kife and its durabl its an awesome kife all around
Yes,i have order it in italy. It's the best
i really want this knife it looks amazing!!! :)
Is there any possibility to order in Europe?
This is a really good quality knife and is a very good beginners knife. Light weight and sharp! I really love this knife!
How can i get one of this knife in portugal?
The knife is very light compared with its bigger brother, the survival knife, but not as strong. The sheath is very well made and usefull. My opinion is that the plastic handle will not last for long. That's why this knife shouldn't be abused. For normal use it will make a good job.
Good design, nothing new though.
But not a fair price for the "mystery steel". A China made knife, similar in weight and tolerance is a quarter of the price. Unless I find out the specifications, not interested in buying it, sorry.
But anyway, thanks for the show :)
The blade is correct ... but the only thing correct, fixing blade is trembling, it is very hard to open with one hand, overall poor manufacturing .... made in china!
First of all, I love your products. You're like the” Glock” of cutlery. You guys produce some of the finest bladed products in the market.
However….I have some concerns about my “BG” Sheath Knife (Item # 31-000752) as well as some thoughts on improvements.
Just by taking this knife out of the package, I have noticed my blade not being as sharp as my other Gerber products I have purchased in the past. There seems to be some slight play when the blade is in an open/locked position. I have tightened the screw, but have concerns the rubberized plastic is not strong enough firmly hold the blade in place with the sized screw being used.
I would have liked to have seen a spring-loaded or “open assist” mechanism in the event I have to use the knife with a single hand.
My biggest concern is that when the blade is fully closed within its sheath, the tip of the blade is still barely accessible. I always attempt to place the knife in my pocket, tip down or on my belt. However, I have brushed the tip of the blade quite few times, without major incident. It just spooks me how accessible the tip of the blade is when fully closed. I was also curious if anyone else has reported this issue.
P.S. Just drank my own piss....
I had to wait for about 3 weeks to get it because i live in Portugal and it was fearly hard to get but it´s totaly worthit .
The only thing taht i would change is the belt thing on the back of the seath(it´s to narrow) There is nothing else to improve.
You have done a GREAT job Mr.Michael Grylls
very good, i am a scout and i added his to my collection a week ago. great for gutting rope. come EXTREMLY sharp, remeber this is a tool not a toy.
Excellent for long days in engine rooms. people who borrow it from me cant believe how durable it is being that it has a lockback and a plastic handle, which completely delivers as a hammer. the handle shape guaruntees if it slips its your fault. the blade holds strong despite the fact ive beaten the crud out of it, and the factory blade is so sharp it near literally dropped jaws
I've used knife serrations for trimming my finger-nails before, but these serrations make my nails feel like butter. I'd rather it be liner-lock and a metal handle, but lock-back is ambidextrous and plastic doesn't rust, so...
I love this knife! My mother got if for me for Christmas and I carry it always! Thanks mom! And thanks Bear Grylls.
I LOVE THIS KNIFE CAME VERY SHARP OUT OF THE PACKAGE GOOD FOR CUTTING ROPE AND CARVIVING THEY DID A GOOD JOB ON IT
i got this knife yesterday and it is amazing. when you open it there is no play in the blade and it feels very sturdy. also there is a good weight to it and the handle is very grippy and comfortable. I went to the woods to test it and cut through everything i could find. well done bear grylls and gerber
My friend has this knife and is very sharp ...good for cutting or carving wood and cutting rope......the serrated edges make all cutting a Lot easier.......a must for all the scouts and bear fanatics out there.......
this knife is amazing! the one hand opening feature is VERY useful and the blade is like a dream and very sharp. GREAT KNIFE!!!
This is easily the best knife ever. Its handy, reliable, lightweight and durable.
Awesome knife use it in the woods, home, work, and everywhere else. Has def became apart of my EDC System. Along with a diamond sharpener, and Magnisium Fire Starter. Best kit piece ever. The only complaint I have is the serrations I tore them up a bit, but overall the still hold up to hard use, and the blade is very durable. Next Gerber wont be a BG Knife, going to go with the LMF Series
My brother game this knife as a present, this is the best knife Ive ever used, and I use it for eveything!
i love it its sharp reliable,the lockback is great and i just think its amazing
it is the best knife i have ever have

Love this knife. Got it for Christmas, and it never let's me down. Thanks gerber/bear grylls!!!
If you need something strong, durable, useful ... U need this knife !
This knife is amaaazing.....buy it!! Great quality, awesome in your hand, RELIABLE lock-back mechanism.....the blade is thick, strong, and NASTY sharp! I also own Bears' Ultimate Knife(Serrated Version), and the Scout...both ROCK, but this is my main EDC knife!! The Nylon Sheath can be worn in many ways, allowing easy one-handed deployment!! Everyone should carry a Survival Knife! Be Prepared! Thanks Gerber & BG!!! ~The Outdoorsman~

Nagyon jó kés.
this knife works great on skin.i cut myself and needed 5 stiches. awsome knife
as soon as i saw this kife i thought, hey, thats the ultimate knife, (since i did not look at the title) until i watched the review! and as soon as i did, i found what i was looking for all along! reliability,no blade play, and will not break! gr8
this is one awesome knife, but they coulb have done better. They should have given it the mettle hammer like but on the ultimet knife. Also they should have given it a better sheath, not the shitty bit of cloth they do give. I really hope some one important is reading this so they can includ this in there next moportant.

I love this knife. I bought it a week ago and have used it pretty extensively. I am very satisfied with the strength of the knife and how well it is constructed. Right out of the box it was able to shave the hair off my arm so it is definetly sharp as all get out. Thank you Gerber and Bear Grylls for making such a superior Knife!!!!!
I absolutely love this knife and can't seem to put it away
People hate on these knives because they're serrated but if Bear Grylls promotes them, I'm pretty sure its for the better.
this knife is awesome.its a little hard to get out of the sheath when the survival thing is in there otherwise its awesome
Ive has this knife for about two months. Ive used it to cut fabric for bandages, open boxes, cut notches in wood and to take down limbs off of trees. Its a great knife, i even got it razor sharp. My only complaints are that it was a bit hard to open at first and that I have to sharpen it about once a week.....but i use it multiple times a day.
A really great knife I never go anywhere without it!
I just got this knife as a gift, and cant seem to put it down!!
This awesome Knife does not leave my side. The more I use it, the more I love it.
The knife is awsome
Great knife!!! Lightweight, very sharp, suitable for any use, very nice and comfortable, and at a good price. Very good product!!!
I LOVE IT!
This is a great knife. I take it just about everywhere I go. If you want a good, sharp, amazing knife, buy this one. It's worth your money.

Bought this knife for Father's Day this year. Used it to remove bark from a stick and serrated blade is all ready chipped. Don't like this knife.
