Gerber sheath Knives
Just picked this knife up at Canadian tire. As is deal. No case or package. Regular price 49.99$ I got it for 14.99$. Honestly wouldn't have even thought about buying it if it wasn't such a good deal. We will see how it fairs this hunting season.
I got the knife for a Christmas present. I put the sheath on my belt and sat down on the couch. When I got up about one hour later, the sheath stayed on the couch. I discovered the rubber belt loop had broken. I sent the knife back to Amazon and they replaced it. The second one did the same. I am going to put in a warranty claim to Gerber. If this is an indication of their quality then I will go back to Buck.
Sa little side to side play, very slight, out of sealed wrapper! Wish they would indicate grade of steel although razor sharp out of box' looked up number for my knife which came with plastic and rubber sheath and sharpener and although could not find any matching model number saw similar knives# is 33-003979 Rev B How about some feedback! I know my son over payed by at lease 20 dollars at well known hunting and fishing chain70.00 is outrageous for this knife. If somebody would please give me some feedback I would appreciate it! I could see if it was USA made and they had what grade steel it was but not happy!
I too got this knife late Saturday and by mid day Sunday the belt loop on the sheath has already broken. What is the deal with that?
just got the knife looked very nice
I love Gerber's but the case on this one
broke right off my belt the very first day
I had it on not happy at all with it
I HAVE HAD MYTH FOR 4 OR 5 YEARS AND USE IT DAY IN AND DAY OUT FOR OPENING BOXES, CUTTING ZIP TIES, ROPE AND PLASTIC BANDING MATERIAL AT WORK. IT IS THE ONLY KNIFE I CARRY ANY MORE.
THE BLADE HAS NEVER SEEN A STONE, I ONLY HAVE TO TOUCH IT UP EVERY SO OFTEN ON A SET OF CERAMIC RODS.
I AM 67 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN AN AVID OUTDOORSMAN ALL MY LIFE AND WOULD NEVER PART WITH THIS KNIFE.
THANKS FOR A PRODUCT THAT PERFORMS AS IT SHOULD!!
The designed knive and shelth very good but only the sharpener not suitable for this knive and the place for sharpener not suitable.
Out of the box the blade wiggled from side to side more than a quality folding knife should, and I was a bit nervous about quality. I used a couple of star drivers to tighten the pivot point, gave the pivot a drop of oil, and now it functions perfectly. No perceptible side movement. The edge stays sharp and the rubbery grip is surprisingly comfortable. This is a serious modern competitor to a Buck 110 or 112.
Would definitely recommend this knife for everyone who spends some time outdoor/wildness... I took it as second (spare) knife and I have been using it mostly for fishing... up to now I didn't notice any rust and sharpness is still really high! I have been using it just for two months and hope it would perform just as good it is now:)
pocket casing - excellent
sharpener - I didn't use at all
steel - excellent
handle - good
this knife is ok but the sharpener is brutal needs a stone or a steel but keeps a great edge
I bought this knife not knowing much about it but when I received it I was very happy with it. The built in sharpener is very cool but It would be better if the knife for tighter in the sheath.
I purchased this as a backup knife to my LMF II for tasks that required more precision and detail. During long excursions in unexplored wilderness, this knife has performed beyond my expectations. Normally, I prefer a fixed blade for the safety of knowing that the blade can't come back on my hand, however this knife locks solidly into place and the locking mechanism is out of the way when the knife is in use.
It is also far more compact than most fixed blade knives. When carrying it in its hard case sheath on my belt, I am able to go through thick brush with ease. The included sheath is well worth the extra money. I only wish Gerber had put some rough texture on the part of the flap you have to pull open. It can be difficult to open the sheath with wet hands.
As far as durability, I found this knife to be very strong. The steel is superb and holds an edge better than any of my other folding knives. The handle contains no metal reinforcement and the sides do tend to bend inwards slightly if they are held with a tight grip. This is due to the grips thin profile and the fact that it is a folding knife, which means the grip has to lack some stability in order to house the blade. To me, this is not a major issue, I am willing to except a somewhat flexible grip for the knives slim profile and lightweight. If you are looking for a similar folding knife but do not want the lightweight flexible grip, I suggest the Metolius Pocket Folder or the Freeman Guide Folder.
