Gerber Gator Fan
I've been using a Gerber Gator folding knife to field dress 3 to 5 Texas deer and a couple feral hogs every year since I was given one for my retirement 26 years ago. Perfect size, shape, grip, and ease of sharpening. My wife recently presently me with another Gerber Gator, but with a S30V plain blade with Gut Hook. I like what I see and have used it on two deer so far and can probably shave with it after it's somewhat limited use. Can't beat Knife Center's price and fast service. Some day, in the distant future, my Grandsons can toss lots for Grandpa's guns and Gerber Gators.

Cons: None
Used in a bakery to open bags of flour, sugar, and cut ty-wraps and cord. This is the second one I have owned and the last one lasted 8 plus years of daily use. Great work knife. Recommend it to anyone. I cannot find anything wrong with this knife.

Work Horse
This knife is replacing my old Gerber of the same style. I really like the heavy weight of this knife. The last one lasted over 14 years of everyday use opening bags of flour and sugar in the bakery. Used the gut hook for cutting shrink wrap, cardboard boxes and just about everything you can think of. This knife is a real work horse. Well worth the money.
