Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Stout little blade
Great knife, but it needs a few design tweaks. The top guard in unnecessary and just gets in the way while using the knife for utility tasks, especially carving. The handle is a bit thin, and the divot in the center doesn't help. This blade is marketed toward servicemen and as an infantryman I would prefer a blade closer to six inches for offensive use. Carbon steal would be a better choice than 420HC. My knife came with a poor grind, which I have heard from other users. I think the plastic over mold is more durable than straight rubber handles and locks in nicely to the sheath. Overall, it is a great knife and I applaud Gerber for finally making a knife with no serrations!!
