Camping and fishing season is getting stronger every day. After long winter here in Canada and the end of the school year make all outdoor adventures more than welcome. And no matter if you are experienced or new to exploring the outdoor world you always need the good quality gear to survive. Knives are not the easiest tool to find with wide selection of products on the market but you can never go wrong with portable Gerber knives great for any outdoor adventures. I ensure that our guys are very thankful to Swords of the East for sending Gerber Survival Compact Scout knife after having few fishing trips. First this knife is light weight and fits easily a pocket, for our trips when our grandfather has his fishing gear to carry with him and walk for few miles, Gerber knife is the best choice. And even for short day trips to the lake, camping or picnicking, it is great to have little Gerber knife handy from cutting branches for campfire to vegetables for your dinner. Here are some technical features of the knife:
- Overall Length: 5.8’’
- Closed Length: 3.3’’
- Blade Length: 2.5’’
- Weight: 0.94 oz.
You can see how compact the knife is, but it also very sharp. I like that the handle is indented for better grip. Talking about the history of Gerber knives, Pete Gerber was the first knife creator to realize the benefits of using all-synthetic materials in the handle. He along with knife designer Blackie Collins aimed to deliver lightweight performance that had not been seen before back at 1980. And I think they created great selection of portable knives everyone likes and we say thank you every time we use ours.
