Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Knife Product Review

With his rise in popularity over the past ten years, finding survival tools and gadgets that are approved by Bear Grylls himself is ideal. And finding an ultimate survival knife that has dedicated by the survival instructor himself is even better.

Made by Gerber, which is one of the most prominent names in the blades and home tools industry, guarantees the quality and the craftsmanship of this product. However, a product can’t expect to thrive based on its brand alone; it needs to offer something different.

Construction

This ultimate knife is constructed by high carbon steel, with a half-serrated point blade performs well with quick but messy cuts through a variety of materials.

A knife crafted from high carbon steel offers excellent wear resistance and is appropriate for a range of necessary cutting tasks when surrounded by the wilderness. The serrated part of the edge is ideal for cutting rope and sawing off small branches.

It offers an ergonomic rubber grip that is designed to be safely and efficiently used. The grip is textured and feels sturdy in hand, and there are minimal chances of slippage when using it. The sturdiness of the grip doesn’t sacrifice comfort, and you will enjoy handling this knife for extended periods.

Designed for optimum handling, the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife has an overall length of 10-inches and weighs 11.2 ounces (which increases to 14.72 inches when stored in the sheath.) It is an excellent size and weight that won’t weigh you down. Instead, it will enhance your survival chances.

This knife’s sharp and durable blade can undertake the smallest of tasks such as hunting for fish or cutting wood to start a fire, or the tough survival tasks as well as for protecting yourself or campmates from any surrounding threats.

What is included?
Included with the knife is a military-grade nylon sheath, which features a diamond sharpener that prevents any additional purchases. It can entertain various climates with its fire starter rod locked into a water-tight holder.

The nylon sheath is crafted from lightweight materials that are mildew resistant for long-term use in the harshest of climates. To secure the knife, it includes a velcro closure, which makes it convenient to access.

The purchase includes a lanyard cord that helps you keep track of the whereabouts of the knife (within reach, we’d hope!)

The lanyard also features an integrated emergency whistle that can increases safety and can be used to attract attention, so your campmates can keep track of you.

Summary

Looking back at my time facing the unknown of the outdoors, I conclude that this knife will work well for most people.

However, I can’t say I have ever been faced with a problematic outdoor survival situation. If I were, I would prepare with multiple knives for everyday cutting purposes and self-defense.

The Bear Grylls-approved Gerber knife is an excellent knife to include in your survival kit and would be handy to have while hiking or camping that can also be used to help survive surrounding dangers.

Overall, at a reasonable price that will complement budgets, Gerber’s Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife is an exceptional knife that suits survivalists of all backgrounds and expertise.

We do not doubt that this survival knife would be a great choice to bring success during your encounter with the outdoors.
