Gerber 30-001060 StrongArm Fixed Blade with Serrated Edge, Black
Gerber has been making survival knives for the US Military since 1968. The StrongArm Fixed Blade carries on our legacy of tough-as-hell fixed blade knives for combat and survival applications. With a sheath that can be mounted in a variety of ways, this knife offers reliable use whether on-duty or off.
SOLID GRIP FOR CONFIDENT APPLICATION
Featuring a serrated edge, full tang 420HC blade with black ceramic coating, the StrongArm was designed around the fundamentals of military survival training. Obtain a solid grip on the knife in all conditions with its diamond-texture rubberized handle. The striking pommel positioned at the base of the handle functions to break through hard surfaces for effective rescue operations, and ceramic coating on the blade offers subtle use through low visual profile, as well as preventing corrosion for long life of the blade.
SMART MULTI-USE MODULAR SHEATH SYSTEM
The StrongArm’s modular sheath system is as important as the knife itself. With the sheath’s snap-together components, the operator can mount the knife vertically on MOLLE, horizontally on a standard 1.75” tactical belt, or in a traditional drop-leg belt mount fashion. The StrongArm Fixed Blade is designed and built in Portland, Oregon.

I normally don't expect very much from Gerber ever since they came out with all the lousy Bear Grylls knives that virtually break if you breath on them too hard! But after watching all of the very positive YouTube reviews on this knife, I decided I would add it to my wish list and see what all the hype was about. I must say, after using this knife for a while, I'm very pleasantly surprised! I think my opinion of Gerber may finally be changing!
This knife is extremely solid in the hand! I would put it up against my ESEE4 and ESEE6 everyday of the week as far as durability goes! The diamond textured rubber overmolded grip is fantastic! Wet or dry, there is no way this knife is slipping out of your hands! The pommel of the knife sports a nice glass-breaker/attitude adjuster, that can be used for a multitude of tasks and is a handy feature to have. The black ceramic blade coating is not overly rough like the Becker and ESEE knives, which is a plus in my book! The blade looks as though it's about 3/16" thick, but Gerber did a very nice job with the saber grind and as a result, this knife cuts like a beast! Despite what some people have said in their YouTube reviews, this knife is PERFECTLY capable of making some beautiful feather sticks (as you can see by my pictures!). The grip shape is very neutral and extremely comfortable in the hand! It easily allows for a multitude of grip options which is awesome! Just a very well thought out grip! Nice job Gerber! The blade is constructed from 420HC stainless steel and holds a great edge! Gerber did an excellent job with the heat treat. The blade also came from the factory with a beautifully, symmetrically ground and very sharp edge! I'm also really happy to see that this knife was made right here in Oregon, USA! The folks over at Gerber did a very nice job finishing and sharpening this knife!
The drop point blade does have an unsharpened swedge for combat and piercing applications. Sure, it will be a bit harder on your baton for bushcrafting purposes, but by no means a deal-breaker! Besides, it's nice to know that I have a knife that can handle combat and self defense roles as well! You never know when you might have to fend off a wild animal. The spine of the blade also comes ground to a very nice 90 degree angle suitable for striking a ferro rod! Another welcomed bonus! Finally, and probably the most awesome feature about the knife....NO SERRATIONS!!! FINALLY! It's about time Gerber finally produce an outdoor fixed blade knife without serrations! So enjoy this one folks because it may be a while before Gerber makes anymore plain edged knives! Lol
This sheath is probably one of the most well thought out and well executed sheaths I've ever received on a production knife! I definitely prefer this sheath to the over-praised ESEE sheaths! The sheath is constructed from a high quality thermo-plastic with plenty of rivets and lashing points for molle and paracord lashing options. The sheath also sports a detachable clip for scout-carry and can also be adjusted for another molle type carry on the back side of the sheath using a removable clip. If this weren't enough, the sheath also comes standard with high quality and well finished, thick nylon webbing for standard drop-leg belt carry options. The button snaps are very strong and quality made! I don't see this sheath having any issues whatsoever, but in the event that you ever do, Gerber has a sterling reputation as far as their customer service and warranty goes, so I don't think you'll have any worries! And for the lefties out there, this sheath is also designed to allow the user to insert the knife into the sheath in either left or right handed orientation. Great job Gerber! It's excellent to see a company finally showing us lefties some attention!
Buy this knife! I'd certainly buy this knife again in a heart beat! This knife is certainly worth it's exceptional price point of $47 as of June, 2016. For that price, I would pick up two and put one away as a backup! I'm a strong believer of the "two is one, and one is none" motto! Highly recommended! Hopefully this knife will change a lot of people's minds about Gerber!
Received today, I easily give it a 10 out of 10 for the knife itself.
Are there higher priced knives available which are made with higher priced steel?
While this certainly is not to replace my 'Survive! Knives' GSO 4.1 (M-390).... this is an "excellent high value knife for the price".
I read about this at the beginning of 2015, I am not and have never been a Gerber Fan(boy), but after reading all the reviews, viewing every video on YouTube... especially the several "Gauntlet Reviews", I bought one on Amazon for $39.15 total.
Read all the online reviews (incl. Amazon, other knife forums etc.) and view the Y.T. 'Gauntlet' videos for all the exact specs.
I regard any review/s by anyone that not only has "never actually owned one" or "never actually had one in hand" to be a non review.
Great value for a very purposeful hard use knife.
The knife steel is no issue for me.
The handle design: ergos/tacky feel are all great.
Insanely sharp on arrival, will probably convex he edge.
Interesting multi functional (3 or more) sheath design, though many find the snaps can pose some issues.
(There are after market sheaths out there: Kydex or Carbon Fiber)
Light weight: 7.2 oz (204 g) - Overall Weight: 10.9 oz (309 g)
For a knife that is "Made In The U.S.A." it's excellent for what you get at this price point.
It can pry, dig, slice, slash, stab, the spine throws sparks effortlessly.
A lot of fun to use.
Really a steal (no pun intended).
Knife: Sharp. The rubber hander feels very good in the hand. Definitely would not come loose even when wet. The full tang is wonderful, I like how it comes to a point at the bottom to be used as either a window breaker or an attitude adjuster. Good weight to it.
Sheath: I'll say I love it. I've been tired of buying knives and then they come with an oversized and useless sheath. I want something small to just cover the blade and this provides that making is less visible on the belt. I like that the sheath has serrations at the top that are elevated on both sides, it is for pushing with your thump to release the knife. Very convenient.
