The Gerber Steadfast is an amazing knife. I think for some time Gerber may have quit producing this particular knife, but I can't imagine why. I say that, as I could not seem to find one for several years. I have now purchased four (4) of the Gerber Steadfast knives for my fiance, my sons, and for myself. The knife itself is built with some thought in mind. The weight of the knife is heavy enough that you definitely know you have a knife in your hand. They are very functional for a number of different uses. Actually, I defy anyone to come up with a need for a knife that the Steadfast would not accomplish nicely. It is tough, strong, and takes and holds an edge very well. A better multi-purpose knife would be difficult to find, and as for a fighting knife you can't beat it. I would recommend the purchase of this knife to any outdoorsman, military person, or one for just general use by anyone. The only thing that I really miss is the option for a leather sheath. Other than that, you simply can't find a better knife.
