5.0 out of 5 stars Not balanced for throwing at your friends
By 3 of Clubs on May 31, 2018
Is this really the "ultimate knife"? No. This is the low cost, discount version of [[ASIN:B00AU6H3UY Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Knife, Fine Edge [31-001901]]]

Let's just get that out of the way first. There are better knives. They cost more money. This is in the price point range where you would compare it to Cold Steel, MoraKniv, some lesser priced Gerbers, Buck 119, Marttiini, Case, et cetera. So we'll say it's in the "less than fifty" category. And even then, this is not the "ultimate". Obviously, if you already have a knife in that price range, and you love it, you will not be sold on this.

Plenty of online videos show the use and destruction of this knife. Most of those videos abuse the product until it breaks. Rest assured, you will not abuse the knife in that fashion. Nobody needs to beat the knife against a rock, or bend the blade in a vise, to show how the knife fails.

Choose the right tool for the job. Batoning wood? A fine edge could be better than serrated. I say use an axe to split wood.

A lot of people are survivalist and bushcrafters. They purposely put themselves into a situation where they will use a knife for everything. Great if they are enjoying what they are doing. But for the average person going on a camping trip, bring everything that you will need. Bring an axe so that you are not chopping wood with your knife.

From first hand experience, the serrated part of the blade is great for cutting cordage, vine, seat belts, bra straps, tarp, and even sawing through electrical wire. No. Not all of you will find yourselves in the situation where you need to cut somebody's communications wires so that their low tech connection to the world is lost. Much in the same way that a lot of people will never baton wood.

A lot of people do not like the sheath. For my purposes, it has kept the knife secure. I like that it is ambidextrous. I can face the blade to either side, nd even carry it upside down. A lot of equipment falls off gear belts with sudden motion; running & fighting. I've been on more than 1 motorcycle ride that ended with an empty sheath. Climb a fence or wall, and watch your knife go flying. MoraKniv, while hands down a superior blade, is notorious for not staying in the sheath. And those leather sheaths with the buckle straps, that is common with Buck, Case, KaBar, et cetera? The strap always snags on something and unsnaps, allowing the knife to fall out.

Steel is described only as "High Carbon Steel". A lot of people question the steel. Okay, I have seen better. The serrated teeth grind down with use, and the fine edge does not hold an edge well and is hard to sharpen. But it all comes down to how you use the knife. The knife blade was just not engineered to cut everything and last forever.

The fire steel does work, in that it will throw sparks. That whistle is great, if you need to blow on a whistle while you're being attacked in a dark alley. But let's not make light of the fact that you will be able to start a fire, and whistle so that rescuers will be able to locate you.

The spine of the blade is notched for fire steel use. This is done at the factory. Most of us with MoraKniv grind down a little spot on the spine for the very same reason.

The diamond sharpening stone is attached by way of countersink screws. This allow you to use the sharpening stone without worry of running your edge into the screws.

No. I am not a bushcrafter. I am not depending on this knife for my survival in the woods. When I go camping, hunting, fishing; I load everything into my truck. I will have a cutlery set for field dressing large & small game. I will have firearms. Hunting with a rifle or shotgun? Why not carry a sidearm too? Have more than one way to start your fire, along with other accelerants just in case. Bring shelter so that you will not have to improvise shelter.

You are in more trouble than you know, if at the last minute, you have to look up survival tips in the portable survival guide. If your survival depends on a gum wrapper, then you will probably not survive.

Thinking about doing everything that you need with this knife is like trying to work on your car with just an adjustable Crescent Wrench. No mechanic in his right mind would try to rebuild an engine with a Leatherman tool.

So how does Bear Grylls do it? Is he using this knife on every episode of his show? Remember that it is a television show which is produced. And this licensing agreement with the manufacturer is purely marketing. Not even Bear Grylls would put his life on the line with a twenty six dollars for two pack special. Which is why this knife is so special. You get 2, for 26 bucks.

No military unit anywhere in the world is issuing this knife to it's special tactical troops.

For me, this knife has found it's way out of my gear. I do not take this with me for trips to the woods. If you want to know, I prefer a Buck 119 or MoraKniv. But this knife is what I keep handy for short hikes on marked trails, bike rides, or taking public transportation. When you're commuting in The City, you never know when you may need to open a pack of beef jerky, spontaneously open a coconut, pry open a file cabinet that you do not have a key for, let the air out of a tire, or settle the random tavern quarrel.

I haven't had the opportunity yet to lash this onto the end of branch. But please let me know if you have used this to cut down a small tree, strip off the excess branches and bark, then cut the paracord from your parachute, to improvise a spear.

1.0 out of 5 stars The tip of the Knife bent!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 13, 2019
I was after a decent survival/bushcraft knife last year after getting back into spending time in the outdoors. After some deliberation, I decided that a knife by made by Gerber and influenced by Bear Grylls would be a pretty safe choice. At around £70, it is not in the higher price bracket of knives, but still a considerable investment for a 6" piece of steel!

I have taken it out about 6 times for overnight trips, using it for whittling, to baton kindling and even chop small tree limbs, all of which tasks it performed very well. However, when last week stabbing the blade into a reasonably soft log for temporary storage, upon removing it I found the tip to be bent(warped).

This is such a shame and disappointment, that I can only assume is the result of a pour heat treatment.

I hope that this was just a 'rouge' blade, because aside from this issue I would have rated the knife 5 stars!
