Rated 2 out of 5 by rebgirl No survival here!
The knife blade was not at all sharp out of the package. Too much
saw and not enough cutting edge. Striker for lighting fires hangs
upside down in sheath. Easily could fall out. Emergency whistle is not loud enough for a distress signal.
Poor quality for a Gerber product.
I would have returned it, but lost receipt when I threw out the packaging.

I haven't had the knife in the field yet, but my limited impression is that it will perform well. It is very sharp and appears to be very solid. Nice weight and I really like the sheath - very sturdy.
All in All - very pleased with the quality of the knife and the price I was able to pick it up for at LL Bean.

This knife is made for any man who loves to hunt, fish or just to own good quality knife. It has lots of extras and will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILikeTheKnife Best choice possible
The knife has a great grip on it, is almost full tang, nice glass breaker, fire striker works well, loud whistle, good instructions on sheath for starting fire, producing sos signals with the whistle, and handsignals to communicate with others. The blade stays sharp and has a part of it which can be used to saw, this works better than expected. A plus is that the knife is a nice color. I have 0 complaints about it and it would help you in any survival situation.

This knife promises to be a handy piece of survival gear. LL Bean's role is also helpful in helping avoid dealing directly with the Gryll catalog.

I don't usually write reviews; but I saw a negative one on this so I had to comment. Case isn't pretty, the knife isn't pretty, but they are solid. this knife and case will last a very long time, for the price the Knife is excellant!

i was plesed with the service as far as time to deliver and keeping me abreast of where my order was but as an earlier review stated the edge was certainly not up to gerber quality. i own several knives from gerber and i have never had one with an edge this poor. a few minutes on the stone and it was what a gerber should be but i shouldn't be the one to have to edge it.
