Rated 5 out of 5 by moosechef One Terrific Knife I 've used a Gator for at least 10 yrs and highly recommend this knife for hunting. I like the high quality of Gerber's no slip handle. My knife has been used to skin at least 8 moose, keeps an edge for a good length of time and can take a beating. Recently went looking for another knife and after checking many others decided to buy another Gator. I agree with another rating advising avoiding the serated style. I only wish it came in a bright orange or similar so it can be found easily when dropped on the ground. August 22, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by jl1771 Great knife I've owned one of these knives for better then 10 years now. I served in the Navy for 20 years and my gator has taken a pounding. It's cut thru heavy rope, THICK rubber and who knows what else. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I've found is that it's hard to get an edge on it at first, but once you do, holy cow, it stays there, a little touch up now and then and it's good to go. If you want a tough knive that will go anywhere and cut anything... this is the knife. I recommend getting the NON-serrated blade just to make it easier to sharpen, not a big fan of serrated blades anyway. June 12, 2010

Rated 3 out of 5 by pshooks sturdy...but i bought this knife for saltwater fishing. The first time that sea water touched it, it immediately formed superficial rust spots. I wouldn't consider this blade stainless although in fairness it does seem to be holding it's edge. March 27, 2010

Details:I see no thumb stud, no thumb hole, no thumb-nail slot, absolutely nothing to give one's fingers a way to open this knife. What gives??? I have a Gerber "Gator II" that has a hole in the blade for opening the knife. I see nothing on this knife to allow opening it. I love my Gator II. It is not extremely fast opening, but this "Gator" would take most of the day to open!

A:I've had the knife for two years and never once had a problem opening it. It's slick ... just squeeze the blade top with your fingers and pull to open.
