Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Finish, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
a pleasant surprise
I rarely offer reviews of products; but after using this knife I will make an exception. I've been collecting/using knives for decades with varied results for use in hiking and camping scenarios. A knife is obviously a necessary tool, to be used to facilitate food processing, bushcraft,etc. I have actually never used a Gerber product before only because I was familiar with the leading knife manufacturers, and bought accordingly. The size, weight, high carbon knife steel and the very comfortable, grippy handle, together with an innovative sheath and the attractive American made ancestry has made this knife my favorite, medium-sized knife within my considerable knife collection. The Knife Center's reasonable price and efficient delivery system was icing on the cake. Blade shape is conducive to multi-tasking with it's excellent balance and razor sharp blade. I'm really picky about my wilderness equipment as I always camp alone in remote areas. With the StrongArm I can rest easy about this well made tool's capabilities.
