Gerber Bear Grylls Scout Drop Point Knife

Bear Grylls and Gerber have teamed up to bring knife lovers, survivalists and scouts a durable and sturdy knife that can take a beating out in the wilds. This knife is the Gerber Bear Grylls Scout folding knife.From the ergonomic grip and lightweight design to the thumb studs and serrated edge, it was created by Bear based on his years of survival training and adventuring.

He’s climbed numerous peaks, participated in world record holding freefalls and crossed large bodies of water in small boats. Bear has been on television for years performing feats for an audience. His show Man vs. Wild was on air for seven seasons. In his television show alone, Bear has shown many viewers how to survive in different wild areas of the world. He’s lived off the land and shown viewers how to find food and water while protecting himself from the elements. He’s brought all that knowledge to the creation of the Bear Grylls Scout Knife, which includes his Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide.

Bear has taken all that knowledge, including his experience as Chief UK Scout, to collaborate with Gerber to create a half-serrated, high-carbon knife that can cut rope as well as perform common tasks while in the outdoors. It makes a convenient every day carry (EDC) purposes.

The Blade

The high-carbon, stainless steel blade of the Gerber Bear Grylls Scout knife is 3.24 inches in length. It’s a drop point, which is half serrated. The serrated edge makes it perfect for cutting thick items with ease. It keeps the fine edge from being dented or scraped while cutting tough things like branches or thick rope. The blade is made of stainless steel, which means that it will hold a razor’s edge for a long time. Many users talk about the sharpness of the steel.

The blade has dual thumb studs for opening with one hand and locks into place securely.Secure lock back is extremely important for performing routine cutting tasks. A blade that slips or wobbles can become a safety issue. The knife’s blade is covered with a black finish and has Bear’s name engraved on the top of the blade itself. It’s a great-looking knife blade.

The Handle

The handle of the Bear Grylls Scout is made of textured rubber for maximum grip. The handle is also molded to fit the hand with finger grooves for ergonomic handling. This reduces the slipping that can happen with some knives when they’re being used for a long time.

The clip on the handle allows the Scout knife to easily clip to a belt or on a pocket for every day carry purposes. The clip rides high on the knife handle, so the knife itself can be tucked away in a pocket. While it was created for Scouts, the knife is great for any activity like the common tasks like opening boxes or cutting small items to cutting branches while hiking and snipping line while fishing.

The Pros

  • The knife was especially created with scouting and the outdoors in mind.
  • With two edge types, it gives a variety of cutting surfaces.
  • Beautiful knife for a scout in your life.
  • Signed by Bear Grylls for fans of his shows.

The Cons

  • The handle material can feel cheap to some users. This seems to be personal preference and not a design flaw.
  • Some owners feel the handle should have steel liners for added durability.

Insider Tip

The Bear Grylls knife is a knife that fans of his survival shows will love. This can make it the perfect gift for a survival buff or a scout who follows Bear’s adventures. The signature on the knife’s blade and his survival guide are great added value gifts.
