If you need a useful tool when you’re out in the backcountry, then you can’t go wrong with the Bear Grylls paracord fixed blade that is presented by Gerber. This Bear Grylls Gerber Paracord knife review will take a look at the features and advantages that you can receive by owning this wonderfully crafted tool. With a full tank and nearly 4 feet of paracord included, you will be amazed by the grip that this knife can offer you.
This Gerber Knife Offers an Authentic Minimalist Experience
If you want to have a balanced knife, then you’ve got to look for something that has a top priority on the user experience within its design. At 7.75 inches long, this Gerber offering provides a 4 inch blade and can be used with or without the paracord in place. The grip works with virtually all hand sizes like in the Gerber Ripstop 2 and it gives every user the chance to maximize the power that they have within their wrists and arms to cut quickly.
One of the true advantages of the Bear Grylls Gerber Paracord knife is that even though it has a very lightweight grip, it remains a truly capable knife. You can customize the wrap with the paracord so that it suits your personal grip preferences. A thin profile compliments the slim design, but doesn’t compromise on the overall sharpness of the blade, much like you’d find in our Gerber Warrant review. You’ll do more than just cut boxes or use it as an eating utensil. The texture thumb rest gives you spine control so shaping wood or working on small game is fast and nearly effortless.
This Knife Has a Lifetime Warranty In Case You Need It
The sheath works with your needs so well, much like the Gerber Mark 1 sheath, that it has been designed to be reversible too. You can use it in your belt loop if you want or strap it to your back if that is more convenient. When the blade does become a little dull, and it will over time, the fine edge is easy to hone using just about any sharpening tool that you have in your arsenal.
Weighing just 5.75 ounces, or 163 grams, the blade length may only be 3.25 inches in length, but it is made from 5Cr15MoV steel and stands up to virtually any test you can give it. The steel holds its edge pretty well as it does with the Gerber LHR combat knife, but the difference is that this paracord knife comes engraved with Bear Grylls autograph just so you know that the knife has been endorsed.
The one change you might consider making with this knife is in the color of the paracord. The orange that comes standard can get dirty pretty quickly and look terrible. We would recommend a black paracord instead.
If you need a useful knife that has been field-tested and flexible enough that it can fix a snowshoe binding as quickly as it can prepare the small game from your hunting trip, then this is the Gerber knife that you are going to want. Lighter than a smartphone and more useful than one in the backcountry, the MSRP of $37 is definitely a good deal.
