Gerber Bear Grylls knife

Earlier this year I told you that Gerber and Bear Grylls were teaming up to make "the ultimate knife."

That knife is now available and Bear is promoting it. The thing does look very sweet. Check it out:

I haven't seen the knife in person yet but personally like a number of the features. I think the built in flint in the sheath is great. Saves you from having to bring your own. I also really like the two holes in the handle in the event you ever needed to lash it to a stick to make a spear.

Here's the specs on the knife:
  • Open length: 10.0"
  • Blade Length: 4.8"
  • Weight: (with sheath): 14.7oz.
  • Weight (no sheath): 11.2oz.
The knife will be available at Cabela's, Amazon.com, Dick's Sporting Goods and Academy Sports and Outdoors when the knife is released on November 15th. It will sell for about $60.

However the best pre-order deal I found while searching for the release date, was through a company called Rocky National and they are selling it for $50.
