Amazon.com

Ideal for whitewater rafters tackling frothing rapids and bracing the Herculean force of water crashing around boulders, the Gerber River Shorty blunt-tipped water sports knife is designed especially for the unique requirements of rafting, paddling and diving. Its 3-inch blade is constructed with a medium-carbon stainless steel at its core, which is polished to within an inch of its life to limit corrosion. The versatile River Shorty has a serrated sharp side that aims up rather than down, a glass-filed nylon handle, and a sheath is constructed of a hard plastic. It can be worn on your belt, on your boot, or attached to your floatation vest. Measuring 6.73 inches overall, the River Shorty weighs 4 ounces. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Decent piece of equipment for the price. Very good blade, nice and thick, tough. Sheath leaves a little bit to be desired as to strapping to a pfd, but overall, I'm glad I bought it. Lots of bank for the buck.

I bought mine originally for use as a second dive knife, but it has been my primary (pretty much only) fixed blade knife since. I've had it for about 15 years, and it is still sharp, good as new. This is a very durable, tough, reliable knife; the serrations on the blade mean that it'll still cut well even as the blade loses its edge.

This knife has been on my rescue PFD ever since I purchased it and it's always been securely put and never have come loose by accident. It's easy to pull out of the sheath and the blunt tip is safe when I'm around the soft boats (rafts). The chrome coating is nice and it hasn't rusted yet. It's a great knife to spread peanut butter but not the best for cutting larger fruits like melons (due to it's blunt tip).

This is a very useful knife, better in most survival situations than those big rambo sawback knives. The blunt tip can pry things open, the blade can cut rope or what not, the blade is thick and tough and rust resistant. The handle fits really well in the hand and the indentations provide good grip, it makes it easy to manipulate the blade for fine work and the holes in the handle let you hang it off carabiners or around your neck if you wanted to. It's light and handy. This would be perfect to stick in a fanny pack-sized survival or wilderness kit. Basically, for it's purpose it would be hard to make something better.

I purchased this knife from Amazon two months ago for sea kayaking. There are a number of features I really like: Sturdy, sharp blade. Appears well designed. Case clips are great for attaching to life jacket. However, after the second time out, even without being immersed in saltwater the blade have many rust spots. I expected better from Gerber.

When I was a kid there was no better knife than a Gerber. This is the second Gerber product I have been disappointed in. The sheath does not fit my pfd slot and the knife is junk. Should have spent the $20.00 more and got the NRS co-pilot river knife. I believe this is the last time I will be buying a Gerber.
The total length of the knife in the sheath is 7 1/2 inches. Not something I want to be wearing on my chest.

The purchase was flawless. I got what I asked for at the agreed price and it arrived in record time for regular mail. Kudos to the vendor.

The knife will likely be useful to me, but I have had a couple problems with it. I assumed that the sheath was designed to fit onto the black knife clips on my life jacket. It will not, so I had to find another, less desirable way to secure it.

I used the knife to cut some cheese for lunch. It worked great. When I tried to fashion a quick baler from a plastic water bottle, the blunt tip made it difficult to start the cut. I understand that it is a safety feature and that it is mainly intended for cutting ropes, straps or other items in an emergency. I would probably opt for the Shorty version that has the point since the sheath does a good job of preventing accidental punctures.

I've owned this knife for 15 years and have taken it down hundreds of river miles. It is a bit cumbersome to attach to the lash points on a whitewater pfd but I can't imagine it ever coming off without tremendous force. Similarly, when fully inserted into the sheath, the blade stays put-I've flipped rafts, jumped off a lot of cliffs and often ignored paying specific attention to the knife but it has always been there. The blunt tip seems a smart choice for emergency cutting through raft entrapment without accidently piercing oneself. I've bought one for each of my children who also raft a lot-none of us has lost one. It stays sharp and none has shown signs of rust.
