Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate PRO Fixed Blade Survival Knife
« on: December 08, 2017, 10:51:42 pm »

My dear sweet innocent sister gave me one of these as a gift over a year ago. The only thing she knew about survival was that "Bear Grylls is awesome and he's a prepper just like you" (picture me banging my head against a wall and mumbling "lord help me")

So to make her happy I wore my knife on my hip even though looking down at the big "BG" logo on the handle made me feel dirty (not the good dirty)

It's been a year and I have treated it with the contempt I thought it deserved. It has survived a full year of abuse doing things I would not normally do to a knife. I have to eat some humble pie and admit . . . gulp . . .  It's actually a good knife

I really wanted to hate this knife but I can't fault it.

So if you're thinking of buying one and you can get over the embarrassing branding you might be surprised. It's reasonably priced, hard wearing, keeps a good edge and can take A LOT of abuse

Got a couple of BG larger bush knives myself. Gator junior is one as I like the lightness of it.
May have to chuck it in the property hilux for 12 months and see how it handles use and
abuse.

Loose ends make my arse itch and I have just clipped my finger nails. So the itch flows to my trigger finger.

People don't like BG due to his TV is very much a Hollywood kind of production.  In the real world BG has extreme skills and experience.
There are a lot of knife snobs out there in the world.  The BG final knife has had a few reviews and I think they have come up with a winning formula.

Personally I have given up with thick blades and big knives like the ESEE.  The idea of a one tools for survival is a bit ridiculous - it is only due to the reality TV programs where contestants are limited to very few items.
I prefer a multi tool, a small thin bladed skinning knife and a large machete or axe.  Never baton wood with a knife etc..

22 with a can and some ammo.
I can make servicable stone knives.
