Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife
Well thought knife
Although I don't like Bear Grylls, This knife is a well thought knife. The blade feels like it could take tons of abuse, not a huge fan of the serrated edge, but it is short enough that it doesn't get in the way when using the straight one. The fire starter was a nice add on, along with the sharpening diamond plate in the back of the sheath. The rubber grip might not appeal to the traditional people, but it is very comfortable.
The sheath was designed so that you can put the knife in, in either direction, so if you are a lefty and like to carry it on the left, all you have to do is turn the knife and the handle is facing the right direction for a lefty draw. The whistle is pretty powerful, and very small. Over all a very well thought knife with great features that can come in handy. The only negative comment I have about this knife is that it has "Bear Grylls" written all over it... If they would make the same knife without the bear grylls stuff, they would sell more of them ;)

this knife is great. its everything i expected and hoped for in a knife. its durable and tough like a true survival knife should be. the only glitch i have is the belt loops, they are too small. but i have ways to imprevise and resolve that problem. im very pleased with this knife and thank my wife for getting it for me.

Bear Grylls Knife
I Like this knife it feels alot more stronger than my leatherman Ukiah, and it feels really heavy and tough,
im not a big fan of the serrated section personally but it is nice and shap.
the handle is comfortable and grippy so no probs there and i like its balance.
the firelighter is pretty cool i was expecting the blade would need to be used to strike it but it has a section on the back of the blade for that purpose, thats awesome.
the sheath probably could of benifeted from being all plastic (like a divers knife) or at least had bigger belt loops, its going to be a pain to fit to webbing, or a thicker style of belt, im not sure its made to last either, being nylon fiber
other the very minor sheath issues (compared to the plusses) im quite pleased with this knife overall

This is a great product but i would expect a little more from Gerber. I like the blade design and the slight curvature in the blade itself. The sheath is the only problem for me. It is great that it holds a fire starter and blade sharpener. But the sheath is a little flimsy. The sheath lacks belt loops and attachment devices for backpacks or whatever you attach it to. All In all i think Gerber did an .ok. job on this knife
