GB31002530: Survival AO Assisted Opener
Bear Grylls has, almost single handedly, created the survival reality show genre. His survival products, developed in conjunction with Gerber, are some of the best-selling things our industry has ever seen. This selection of survival products will be a great addition to your go bag!

Surviving the unexpected is about being prepared, and the Bear Grylls Survival AO Folding Knife exceeds the standard. Few people know more about survival than Bear Grylls, ex-British Special Forces officer, experienced mountaineer and respected survival trainer. Taking advantage of Gerber’s decades of experience and Bear Grylls’ adventure knowledge, the Survival AO folder gives its user the ability to engage with the surroundings in perpetual survival mode.

Quick access to the blade of a folding knife is imperative in survival situations. The Survival AO, featuring an assisted opening blade that deploys reliably and quickly with one hand, responds for instant use when the situation demands it. Using Gerber’s FAST 2.0 technology, the Survival AO implements both a plunge lock and a safety lock. The safety barrel lock will keep the blade closed when in a pocket, or as a secondary lock when opened. Closing the knife is a simple one-hand process: after the plunge lock is released, simply press it down against a firm surface.

With its partially serrated 3" 7Cr17MoV steel blade, the Bear Grylls Survival AO’s robust action works capably to cut, rip, tear, and slice, whether it’s box tape in a warehouse or branches for shelter in the woods. The handle is made of durable glass filled nylon with the familiar rubber over-mold for a solid grip in all conditions. A removable pocket clip and lanyard hole provide multiple carry options, insuring the Survival AO stands at the ready until summoned. The Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide is included with this knife, furthering its usefulness and potential life-saving utility.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
Good value
Great knife for the price. Sharp enough to shave hair and all I did was strop the blade. Would prefer a non serrated blade and the release is a bit difficult to get to unlock due to me being left handed.

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Poor craftsmanship
Mine hardly open need to use 2 hands. It's not working with just your thumbs. The mechanism or spring is too tight and does not deploy smoothly.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
Nice improvements
This is a very light knife which opens easily with a neat system for ,ocking the blade open or closed. It is much improved over the original scout knofe with metal linings for the handle and appears to be just generally better finished and higher quality throughout. It is sharp, has a useful blade shape and fits my hand well. I really like it. It is also great at shaving strips of wood with the serrations being just the right size to bite into the edge of split wood. Really like this knife. The tip down type clip isn't my favorite but it still works fine.
