About Bear Grylls Survival Gear
Together with Bear Grylls, Gerber makes survival tools for everyone from scouts on their first overnighter to seasoned adventurers exploring the backcountry. For survival in the elements, Gerber created a line of the toughest, most innovative knives and tools available. With just your hands, your head, and your tools, you can account for everything needed to stay alive in the wild.

About Gerber
When Joseph R. Gerber described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the "birth of an enterprise that grew into big business," it was true, but it was an understatement for sure. What had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had turned into thousands of retail accounts around the country. By 1960, Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, appreciated and collected names in knives.

After more than 70 years since its founding, Gerber continues to grow. Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber's "enterprise," Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high-quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use. The sleek, stainless steel sheath knives of the '50s and '60s (the Magnum Hunter) have given birth to today's lightweight, open-frame clip folders (the Remix). Gerber is, however, no longer just a knife company. Multi-tools, axes, handsaws, machetes, headlamps, flashlights, survival kits, digging implements--these are the newest directions that Gerber explores with the same standards of quality and design that inform their revered knife making.

What's in the Box
One Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife with a fine edge, one sheath, one knife sharpener, one emergency whistle, and one Bear Grylls "Priorities of Survival" pocket guide.

Product Description

Built like the Ultimate Knife, this non-serrated version has a fine edge from the tip of the blade to the top of the handle. Using the same high carbon, stainless steel drop point blade and texturized rubber handle this is equally tough and unmistakably Bear-inspired. Housed in a nylon and hard rubber military-grade sheath, a fire starter, a diamond knife sharpener and survival guide are all integrated. The lanyard cord contains an emergency whistle. The Ultimate Knife (both serrated and fine edge) is the pinnacle of Bear's signature line.

Received the straight edge knife today. Reading other reviews I was somewhat worried about my purchase. I found the knife to be sharp but not razor sharp a few passes over my sharpening stone (did not try the one that came with the knife) and now you can shave with it. The fire starter was hard to snap into the holder but is a good thing because it's hard to get out and at the present I have no fear of loosing it like others have complained. The survival book was hard to slide into the back of the knife sheath but with some effort I did manage to get it in there. I have not tried busting wood (batoning wood for you proper folk) with it yet and probably will not unless its a true emergency. The knife has a good feel and fits into the sheath tight. Some people did not like the orange highlights on the knife but I guess those people have never dropped or lost anything in the leaves like I have (I will also be adding some bright orange paracord to the sheath to make it stand out even more). If you are buying this knife for combat you will not be happy, but if you are a everyday Joe like me who will only be using it for hiking, fishing, or camping I don't think you will find a better knife for the price.

Review from a backpackers point of view.

Overall, the approach to the kit is excellent. Solid blade, stone to touch it up, fire starter, and a whistle. That's a lot of love and insurance.

As of June 2012, the reviews of the sharpness as delivered are correct - will do the job but not majesticly sharp. Some work with Chef's Choice 440 2-Stage Manual Sharpener got it where I like it, which is roughly kitchen blade sharp.

In my backpacking application, this will cut salami, work a fish, make fuzz sticks, etc. I view this as an all-around utility knife to support the utility of the multi tool as a system.

The orange accents are nice for visibility. Like others, it made sense to move the whistle down to the bottom of the sheath and have some orange cord through the pommel.

Can't imagine ever being in a situation where I would need to baton wood. Nice to know I could if I miscalculated and got myself in a pickle.

The serrated version is much more aggressive. Own that as well. If I was distance hiking in a small group through the Montana wilderness or doing anything solo, I would choose the serrated version. Anything East Coast, AT related, car camping, or where I knew other hikers would be around, this is a great choice.

End of day, and in my opinion, this is a solid blade and a well thought out set of backups.

Went on a 9-day backpacking and day hike vacation in Alaska, ranging from Denali to the Kenai Peninsula.

Down in Hope, AK, we bought a bundle of fire wood from the camp attendant.

When I first saw all the Grylls Gerber stuff I thought it looked as stupid as a Mickey Mouse watch. I thought better when I handled a GUK serrated, so I got this fine edged version and reprofiled the edge, which I do with virtually every fixed blade.
Later, the Ultimate Fine Edge was one of 9 fixed blade knives I carried into the woods, to compare how well they chopped and split wood for emergency firemaking. (The splitting done by the so-called batoning method, smacking the dull edge of the blade with a small section of log.) Most of the knives had 5-inch blades, I was cutting a dead tree, bark still on, 2.5 inches in diameter, hard as a rock.
I wasn't planning to chop clear through the thing, but the Grylls chopped so well, next thing I knew I had cut clear through it. The only knife that matched it at chopping was a large bowie Kabar, much bigger, much heavier and more expensive. After sawing and chopping off multiple sections, all the same diameter, I found the Grylls outsplit all the other knives. And by outsplit I mean it took far fewer whacks of the baton than any other knife. As soon as the thickest part of the blade entered the wood, it practically fell in two. All the knives were SHARP. I think the Grylls did so well because its hollowground section created less friction, its finish created less friction and the blade was thick enough.
It outperformed:
- A Becker BK2, which required much harder swings to chop, and far more and much harder whacks of the baton. Its blade is very thick.
- An Ontario RAT 7. Its blade stuck fast with each chop, and had to be pulled out with a hard yank, probably because the edge is thin and the blade coating created friction. The small logs didn't begin to split until the blade was totally buried in one end.

Like the previous reviewer, my knife also arrived DULL. I can't even cleanly cut through a piece of paper with this knife, which makes me a pretty unhappy customer. Sure, I can sharpen the knife in about ten minutes time, but the point is I shouldn't have to. As a person who likes Gerber products, I'm pretty disappointed and will be giving their customer service a call ASAP to see if there's anything they can do about it.

Outside of the knife being dull, the sheath seems fairly solid. I don't think it will become useless if one aspect of it fails as the main part of the sheath will still house the knife securely, but it'd be pretty difficult to secure it to your backpack or belt if the nylon backing fails. The whetstone on the back seems okay, but I'd probably only use it in an emergency to sharpen the knife. The fire starter rod seems to stay in its place, but I haven't had a chance to adequately test that. I have to agree on the whistle/lanyard being a hokey add-on that I'll probably remove at some point in the future. The steel pummel on the base of the handle seems pretty solid and makes a decent impact on the things I've hit with it thus far without causing a lot of vibration through the handle. I wouldn't use it in place of a hammer, but it'd definitely get the job done if you were in a bind.

Overall, I'd say this is a good starter knife for anyone looking to toss something into a survival kit, their bug-out bag, or throw in their backpack while in the backcountry in case the SHTF. I don't think I'd use it for hunting, but others might disagree. Like any other survival tool, make sure you use it home first so you're not trying to figure it out when you need it.
