Description
GB31001683: Bear Grylls Paracord Fixed Blade
Gerber
 
If you're going to pack an item into the backcountry, it becomes even more valuable when it serves multiple purposes. By combining Gerber's decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls's survival knowledge, the Bear Grylls Paracord Fixed Blade is that item. You get the functionality of a field-proven, full tang fixed blade knife plus the added versatility of nearly 4 feet of paracord. And it weighs in under 6 ounces, that's less than most smartphones—not bad for a 7.75-inch long knife.

Balanced Minimalism
The minimalist, balanced feel of the Paracord Fixed Blade is well-suited to extended backcountry travel where every ounce counts. The 4-inch handle performs equally well with or without the paracord, and it offers a full grip for all hand sizes and plenty of power for driving the blade to shape wood or work on small game. A deep choil that sits between your hand and the blade allows you to safely apply added pressure when driving the blade, and a textured thumb rest on the spine adds control. The 45 inches of paracord on the handle could fashion an emergency splint or repair a blown snowshoe binding. Until then, the cord serves as a lightweight grip on an incredibly capable knife. You can even customize the wrap to suit your grip preference.

Multitasking Sheath
The lightweight, slim design of the sheath is in keeping with the thin profile and minimalist style of the knife, a real plus when you're traveling light and don't want bulky items hanging from your belt or pack. You can customize the sheath to meet your access preference, too: tip up, tip down or to the side. It attaches easily to a pack, or remove the belt clip for the ultimate in minimalist packing.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Handle Material, Finish, None
Good for the money
Excellent knife after you change the paracord for less tacky and sand of the orange BG sings. Also had to fix the sheath and the blade with fine sandpaper to get them operate smoothly. Carries easy on the belt due to the slim width of the handle and the sheath. Keeps edge nicely and sharpens easily.
