Gerber Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife Review

Gerber 31-000752 Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife 3.6" Combo Blade, Rubber Grip Handles


The Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife has a compact blade made of High Carbon Stainless Steel that can fit in a sheath or on your belt, and out of the way. But don’t be fooled by its compact size. This is a serious blade. Half the blade is serrated, which can be used for cutting rope. The overall length of this knife is 8.5 inches with a blade length of 3.6 inches. That makes it comparable to many of the medium-sized survival knives on the market. The blade has a lock back feature which keeps the blade in place while it is open for extra safety. The closed length is 4.9 inches. The blade has a thumb stud which can be used to open the knife with one hand. This can come in handy when you’re out in the field with a handful of anything. This knife weighs 5.3 ounces with the sheath and 4.3 ounces without the sheath so it is relatively light for its full size.

The grip is excellent on the Gerber Bear Grylls Folding Knife. This is one of the more comfortable grips I handled lately and feels good in all handling positions. Rubberized and textured ensures that you will have a strong grip, no matter the conditions you are working in. The ergonomic shape makes this handle very comfortable. The dark grey rubber overlay material works nicely in conjunction with the much harder orange base material. I am a huge fan of rubberized grips when it comes to using a knife in the field when weather conditions may not be optimal.

The Gerber Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife comes with a durable nylon sheath which is mildew resistant and accommodates horizontal as well as vertical carry. I am not a huge fan of nylon sheaths but it does the job. I prefer hard plastic type sheaths because more care has to be taken with nylon sheaths, so as not to have the knife sitting in a moisture pit, causing corrosion. Good sheaths are inexpensive so this is not a deal breaker and at least it’s not leather.

This knife comes with Bear Grylls Survival pocket guide. It has survival basics which you can follow to help keep you alive in a survival situation. I personally think this is a gimmick to appeal to a specific demographic and see no real use for it, at least not for most people interested in survival knives.

Overall I rate this knife a 7.5. The Gerber Folding Sheath Knife is a good option survival knife, priced affordably and worth it for the abilities of this blade.
