About Gerber: A History of Innovation
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that have contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.
It makes sense, really. An idea man gets the idea of a lifetime and turns it into a major outdoor brand--one that commands respect among knife lovers and knife makers alike. And now that same high regard is spreading in new directions, in the form of many outstanding products such as tools, personal L.E.D. lighting, and more.

I have this knife in the partially serrated version. It is 8.75" long when open, 5" when closed, and the blade is 3.75". If you have the serrated model, the first 1.5" is serrated. The remaining smooth blade hones nicely and stays sharp. Gerber 650 &Portland, OR U.S.A are printed on either side of the blade.
The grip is exceptional. The Kraton handle is very tough and offers superior traction and grip with it's rubbery feeling alligator finish. It has a notch for the index finger and the butt curves down to fit your other fingers very comfortably. It feels like a part of your hand when you hold it and is balanced nicely for a folder. It simply stays in your hand when you want it there.
The lock is solid with a lever-lock cog/pin system in the backside. The cordura/nylon belt sheath has a velcro closure that has some adjustability to it. Mine is several years old now and I still love this knife. For this price, it's an amazing buy. There are knives that cost 3 or 4 times as much that don't feel nearly as good. The steel could be a little harder, but it holds its edge admirably.
They came out with this over a decade ago and you can still find it and it's popular. I think that says a lot. I haven't used the ones with the hook point (sinew cutter for hunting, cutting rope etc.) but they seem virtually identical.
The only thing this knife is missing is an ambidextrous notch for quick opening. I give it 4.5 stars, rounding up for price/performance ratio and fantastic quality and grip.
The blade is sharp and easy to re-sharpen. I prefer the straight edge on this model because it is easier to sharpen than a serrated edge. The rubberized grip is sure and secure. Even with blood soaked hands it is easy to grasp and will not slip. The lock blade is secure and has never failed even when being forced through elk cartilage. The sheath is very well made with a fully sewn belt loop (no loop snap to come apart). The sheath has never failed me even when crashing (yes, crashing) through heavy brush and trees.
I purchased three of these as Christmas presents for our kids this year and I also used the opportunity to get myself a second Gerber Gator for my bug out bag.
I have had many blades over the years but my top three blades to cover all senarios is a Condor Golok machete, an Aitor Oso Negro Spanish Military Knife and the Gerber Gator. With the exception of building a log cabin, these three blades cover everything. However, the Gerber Gator is the one I carry and use the most because it is a mid-size, convenient folding knife suitable to wear around town in all settings as well as out on the trail.
The price is also very fair and is now a great value due to it's age. Many of the new knives may look "tactical" but are no match for the function and performance of the Gator in practical use.
Go ahead..... Buy it! You'll be happy you did.
This knife is absolutly perfect, as it's light weight, it folds, it locks open, it has a rubber like handle making it easy to grip, even with wet hands, it really holds an edge, and when it does need sharpening, which is seldom, it's not too hard to get it back to a razor's edge.
youll likely never see 5 stars from me again

I own several of these because I really like the non-slip and comfortable grip. Reasonable price but not a cheap product. The lock back mechanism seems very robust.Published 5 months ago by mgo
