UPDATE 11/2010: (for those of you who may have an old version)
I've contacted Gerber regarding my issue, and it looks like this is essentially a "beta" or promotional version, and there will be modifications done Jan/feb of 2011 to correct the issues at hand. Maybe the new one will also be made in Portland. Here is their correspondence.

So I have to give credit to Bear Grylls and Gerber, and its hard for me to do that, because I hate Gerber Knives... well I did, not anymore.
So if you are on the fence like I was about this knife, go buy it! Its well worth it! Not an issue yet (and if anything happens I will come back here immediately and retract my good review).
-Feels good, great ergonomics
-Pommel looks secure (I didn't use it)
-Sheath LOOKS cool
-Sheath IS not that great,
-Not full tang as advertised, there is a gap between the pommel and the blade
-Fire rod is short, maybe 2 inches and the holder is hard to get your hands on
-Serrations don't last, AT ALL
-The mystery steel on this is equivalent to 440A, (very soft shell that won't rust on you but, that's as good as it'll get )
As a fan of Man vs Wild, I wanted to give this knife a 5 star rating before I even received it, but now I have to give it a 1. Aside from the controversy, I still found Bear entertaining and knowledgeable. After barely using the knife...I quickly became disappointed.
The fire starter is thin and short...because of this, it took some effort to get the coating off the ferrocerium rod. Also, the short strokes don't allow for many sparks. The rod already looks like it is wasting away. It's just too difficult to get a good grip on it.
The serrations were really sharp. I thought that the straight part of the blade wasn't as sharp as could be, but I was able to feather and carve some sticks with no problem using this part of the knife, but that was short-lived.
I used the knife for 10 minutes and the serrations were chewed up and the blade was bent. This happened while carving and batoning a 2x4 in my garage!
I liked the color scheme. I like the color orange as it is and this knife looks awesome with grey and orange.
The knife looks awesome, it fits the hand really well...it just feels good, but that's it! With my experience, if you decide to rely on this knife, you better hope that you are rescued in 10 minutes because that's how long it takes to destroy it!
For those that want to stay within range of the $40 Bear Grylls knife and want real quality and not a gimmick, a Mora is a very good option.
