Innovative, Weather-Proof Construction
Like alligators, the Gator Folder is completely indifferent to the weather--it performs to its fullest whether it's wet or dry. This recipient of the 1991 Blade Show winner for "Most Innovative Knife of the Year" continues to impress by consistently delivering top-notch performance when it comes to even the toughest cutting jobs.

Textured Handle for a Better Grip
The Gator Folder employs advanced thermoplastics and features a glass filled nylon handle with an alligator skin texture to provide an incredibly reliable, supremely comfortable grip. The feel of the reptile scales keeps your grip secure, whether you're hunting, rock climbing, camping, or fishing.

Durable Steel Construction in a Lightweight Design
Built to be rugged, the Gator Folder boasts a durable 420HC stainless steel blade and a dependable lock-back mechanism for safety.

For added convenience, the knife arrives with a sturdy nylon sheath. And with a length 8.5 inches, blade length of 3.76 inches, and a weight of 5.4 ounces, the Gator Folder is compact enough to toss into a bag or backpack or to slip into your pocket, so it's easily accessible when you need it.

The Gator Folder is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

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.

Gerber (A Fiskars Company) put out some of the best knives for the money in the market. Fiskars is my favorite scissors company and everything I've used of their stuff is top notch - so this is a good combo.

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 Gerber folding Gator #6069 is the best folding knife I have ever owned. I have carried one for probably 20 years by now and my original knife is still as good as new. I have used it to gut trout, small animals, pheasant, etc. It has also assisted me in skinning deer and elk.

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.

... Wonderful workmanship, the fit and finish is nothing but exceptional. It's easy to grip and fits in your hand like a custom pair of gloves. This one won't get away from you (slipping from your hand), that's for sure.

This past hunting season, I lost part of my pack with my favorite hunting knife inside while tracking a deer. I have gone back and looked many times, but to no avail! When I looked in the usual stores to buy another one, it seems that none of them carry this particular model anymore. Only the newer designs, which I don't really care for, as most have a serrated edge. Anyway, when I found the clip point Gerber Gator on Amazon, I was thrilled and ordered it right away. Now I have my favorite knife back, and in a different pack that won't get lost.
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.

Best folding knife you'll ever have. Portland steel that will take and keep an edge you can shave with, done it just to prove a point. the rubber handle is the clincher. It's made out of some sort of soft griping rubber that, even when slippery with fish or hunting mess, your hands wont slip on the handle, and your forefinger drops into that notch behind the blade so you can really steer it when cutting. I have used these knifes for years and when I lost mine was devasted to learn that they are a hard to find commodity. buy one and try it out. you'll thank me for it.

youll likely never see 5 stars from me again
