User Review: Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife
Price Paid: $40
I own quite a few knives for different functions. I have knives for survival, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, etc. You name it, I own quite a few knives.
I found that the Ultimate Knife is modeled after the Gerber LMF which was my go-to knife for everything at one point in life. To me this is a great thing, as that knife has lasted me through years of use and hopefully with proper maintenance this one does the same.
The serration on the blade, as another reviewer mentioned is great for cutting rope, cord, etc. however, it does make it a little trickier in sharpening the knife as you cannot just run the entire blade across a stone. That isn't exactly a shortcoming, as partially serrated blades have many uses. The stone with the knife is adequate for putting a decent edge on the knife, however, it can work in the "field" as needed.
Since owning this knife, I've taken it with me on many trips and it's served me reliably. For an inexpensive, yet dependable knife, I would recommend the BG Ultimate Knife. All in all, I found the knife to be surprisingly good. In fact it exceeded my expectations.
