GB31002181: Bear Grylls Survival Series Grandfather Knife
You probably owned a classic pocket knife as a kid and maybe your father or grandfather kept one handy. Gerber's decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls's adventure knowledge come together in the Grandfather Knife. Based on a knife that was passed down from Bear's grandfather to his dad and then to Bear himself, Gerber honored the classic style and utility of Bear's knife by designing it with 7 utilitarian components while maintaining the vintage appearance of his original knife. The Grandfather Knife is the quintessential do-it-all pocket knife with the benefit of modern construction.


Like a good hand tool, the first thing you'll notice about the Grandfather Knife is its comfortable heft and easy handling. It weighs half of what most multi-tools weigh and embodies the essence of pocket knife: equal parts utility and zest for adventure. The tool selection is simple by design, offering what you need to save the day at the picnic when there's no wine opener in sight or to adjust the throttle on your mower without making a trip back to the garage. The fine edge blade, corkscrew, flat and Phillips head drivers, small file and all-important bottle opener are easy to deploy and give you flexibility in your moments of need. At 3.75 inches long, the closed knife is only slightly bigger than a disposable lighter. Still, you get a 2.75-inch fine edge blade, big enough for substantial tasks yet compact enough to carry daily.


The Grandfather Knife disappears in your pocket until you need to put it to work. Like a perfectly weighted skipping stone, it feels great in your hand, too. The rubber-molded grip adds to its easy-to-hold shape and offers a little added security in cold, wet conditions. Don't let the knife's vintage look fool you; it's meant to get used today. The fine edge blade is easy to sharpen and there’s a lanyard ring for adding a small strap or hanging it from your belt.

Bought on an impulse and glad I did
Got this on sale at REI for a next to nothing in sept of 2014 and have carried it nearly everyday since. This knife is a bit raw and unrefined and is most definitely not lovingly hand fitted and assembled but it performs very well for the everyday things you call on a tool like this to do. It has prepped some food at the grill, cut bags of apples and oranges for my daughter, uncorked lots of wine, and fixed some toys. If you slice an apple at the playground picnic table with this, no one will look twice. Even used at the office to cut up some summer sausage in a Christmas gift basket- no dirty looks and was perfectly handy. Worth the price listed here. Easy to keep sharp and nice to have in your pocket. Kind of fun carrying a simple knife like this again. Less bulky than a SAK and carries better in pocket.
