Rated 4 out of 5 by from SOLID! Bought this knife as my first fixed blade. My friend has owned one for a while and pointed me towards it, he said his has kept its edge fairly well. Comfy and well balanced grip, lanyard attachment point. Hard to dull this knife, used it to split wood, aaaand it performed. Only thing about the blade is i would have liked to see the straight edge a bit sharper. As per some reviews dogging on the sheath, I don't see any heart breaking flaws, inexpensive design on ballistic nylon but not cheaply manufactured. One of the better knives in the price range, wouldn't hurt to have a backup on the trail considering its price and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honest Review This was the first "big" knife that i bought. It works great. With a little bit of time on a whetstone and it was sharp enough to shave with--even though there is no good reason to have a knife that sharp... unless you need to shave, I guess. In all honesty it is as diverse of a knife as I can imagine a fixed blade to be. I have scaled and gutted fish, whittled spears, killed a real ticked off rattle snake, and prepared food with this knife. And after a year of solid use it is as good as new. Sure the sheath is not the most amazing sheath of all time, though I have not had any real problems with it, but if you want a good knife, you cannot go wrong with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Big-Knife I have this knife strapped on whenever I head into the backcountry. It has proved its worth over and over again, from cleaning fish and dressing game, to cutting ropes and branches to build a shelter. This is an excellent, no-frills, survival knife. Only get's four stars because of the sheath. It is floppy and likes to slide around on a belt. I was able to improve on the design by sewing on nylon straps at each end that could be adjusted in length to either wrap around the thigh or calf, or as I like to carry it, attached to my pack's shoulder strap for quick and easy deployment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exellent knife for the price You can spend all day shopping for a good quality knife to suit your needs or you can just purchase this one and be more than pleased. Mine has been in the mountains of Afghanistan, the deserts of Iraq, the Cowlitz River Valley and several backcountry hunting trips in Montana and has yet to fail. No matter what you may cut,chop or slice this knife feels comfortable in the hand not matter what grip you are using. This knife fills that void between a camping/backing knife and a blade you may have to use in a survival/self-defense situation. With that being said the sheath needs to be redesigned but with the money you save, you can easily purchase a good quality leather or nylon one of your choice and still not break $100. I have purchased several more as gifts to family and friends who like me don't want to spend a fortune on a knife. Don't pass up a good deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I have many knives such as Orion, Kershaw, SOG, Ka-Bar, etc... This Gerber is as good as any of them. I leave this one in my go-bag in my truck due to its size and durability. The blade is thick so you can really beat on this thing and not worry about banging it up because it is super affordable. I would rather have two or three of these than an expensive Benchmade that I am worried about losing or ruining. Buy one or two before they are no longer available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife for Outdoor Adventure If you are looking for a larger knife to tackle a wide variety of situations but you don't want to spend a fortune, this is your knife. I took the knife on a BWCA canoe trip and it was a work horse. I broke my axe handle and used the knife to widdle down the hardwood to put the axe head back on with ease. I also used it to fall a small tree that was laying across the trail. A larger knife really comes in handy on camping trips and this knife can be used in situations where a pocket knife would be useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome knife I have beat the heck out of this knife and it's still going strong. The full tang construction makes it very sturdy and the rubber grip makes it stay in your hand even if wet. I have literally cut small (~7 inch diameter) trees down with this thing by banging on the back of the blade with another stick. The blade obviously dulls after that but after a quick sharpening it's good as new. The sheath however is pretty cheap. It's sufficient, but barely. Overall, yes.... buy this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best knife I've ever had for the $$$ For the money, this is onf of the best knives you can buy. I'm back on the web site to order a second one because I left mine on the top of my jeep after packing up at the campsite... god only knows where it landed on the way home. This knife has a full tang, and the hilt has a very comfy grip. I actualy like the flexability of the nylon sheath. At first, I wasn't sure about the serated edge because the blade is made of stainless surgical steel, it's a bit soft and the teeth have a tendancy to dull and chip and are hard to put an edge back on but then aften using it to saw through various things, for the price, who the hell cares. That's the best part, I've had $200+ knives fall apart... again I let this one fall off the top of my jeep...
