Bear Grylls Survival Knife

Imagine if you suddenly found yourself lost in the jungle and had to survive for a few days before being found, what item would you most like to have with you? No, it's not an iPhone. It's a Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Knife with Serrated Edge.

The Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Knife by Gerber
For those of you who don't know, Bear Grylls is a British adventurer type. He was in the British SAS and has also climbed Mount Everest. He also has a TV series, Man vs Wild, in which he is stranded alone in a remote, inhospitable part of the world with nothing but his survival skills, and a camera crew. He has to get back to safety using his wits, surviving off the land, catching and killing his own food and sometimes having to drink his own urine.

The Bear Grylls Survival Knife is made by Gerber, who have been making knives since 1939. This survival knife has everything you would need when out in the wild, including a firestarter, sharpener, 4 oz urine cup with lid and emergency whistle.

It comes with a sheath, a firestarter and a urine cup.
This knife will not suddenly give you 'mad Bear skillz' and enable you to survive extreme or harsh environments, but it will make you look the part on your next camping or fishing trip.

The knife was sharp out of the box and the firestarter gave off some good sparks. My one concern was that the urine cup had a few drops of liquid in it on arrival. There was no evidence of the package being previously opened or that any of the other items were used in any way. I assume that it was condensation due to the cold weather.

Personally, I still prefer my SOG VL-01 Vulcan, which is not really a survival knife, but is foldable and sits nicely in my back pocket and doesn't have orange branding all over it. If you want a sturdy knife for a reasonable price then Bear Grylls and Gerber have a great product for you.
