Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Scout Knife Review

Let’s begin with a little clarification regarding knives … while, yes, knives can be used as weapons, so too can my pen and as far as I’m concerned we need to take things in the context of which they’re meant. With that said, let’s move onto the review of The Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Scout Knife.

The Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Scout Knife is the “little brother” of The Gerber Bear Grylls Scout Knife with an overall length is about 5 inches. The blade length is about 2 inches, with a closed length of only 2.6 inches and weighs less then an ounce. The blade is made of high carbon stainless steel with an anti-reflective coating. The blade has a useful drop point design, which is excellent for general purposes like camping and fishing … and um … shopping like when you buy a new gadget for your phone (that you HAVE to play with) and it’s encased in alien plastic that requires a knife to remove.

Blade Specs:
  • Overall Length: 4.62"
  • Blade Length: 1.96"
  • Closed Length: 2.65"
  • Weight: 0.6 oz.
  • Lock Mechanism: Lock-back
  • Blade Style: Drop Point
  • Blade Material: 420HC Stainless Steel
  • Blade Type: Fine
  • Handle Material: Glass-filled nylon

The blade conveniently tucks away for safe carrying and opens easily with a thumbnail notch. About a third of the blade is serrated, which is why it was useful when extracted my new phone gadget from the alien plastic encasing, the remainder of the blade is a typical fine edge. Overall it’s a decent general-purpose knife that comes with an added bonus of Bear Grylls Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide -- in case us ladies get stuck with something really tragic like a broken nail -- and at $12.96 this is a fairly decent knife to own and makes a great gift. You can get the Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Scout Knife on Amazon
