New Gerber Bear Grylls Signature Survival Knife

$50.00 at my local Academy. It comes with a ferro rod, and a diamond sharpening stone built into the sheath. As well as a guide on how to build shelter, water purification, etc. Besides it being a Bear Grylls signature series knife it looks like a good deal. I like my Gerber EDC Tanto blade. It has served me well for almost a year. There is a video in the link. I also talked to a guy who uses one for hunting. He told me it works really good and had just skinned a deer with it on his last hunt. He also said the ferro rod works very well. So, would it be totally gay to buy this? Ha ha!

I've been wanting another knife more gear towards SHTF and the price is right. Right now I have a SOG Revolver Hunter.

Looks like an updated LMF, but I like the addition of the ferro rod. I might pick one up if I was in need of a good pack knife. Though at present it'd be cheaper for me to just pick up some ferro rods.

It seems ok to me. As long as the striker rod doesn't pull out in brush or under heavy use I like the unit.

I wonder about the blade though, specifically whether the blade itself is any good.

The ferro rod seems to snap into place pretty hard. And if the blade holds up like any other Gerber it should be good to go. I was wanting the LMF II but it's twice the price and the BG blade has more to it. I may pick this up today at lunch.

You guys watch the video?

Is the knife real, or a fake, too?

Haha! That's flippin awesome. Hey Bashman. I was waiting for a Bear Grylls bashing response. That's why I asked if it would be totally gay if I bought the knife. We all know Bear Grylls methods of running and jumping around like a monkey on crack over mountains and through jungles is totally absurd.

Besides how we all feel about Bear. That's no secret here. How about the knife? Pretend it doesn't have BG on it.

That looks like a good knife at a really good price. For some reason, some companies are charging as much as $150 for the knife.

The pommel is not attached to the tang and can break off.
Looks like the current version is going to be replaced. Wait for the newer version:

Yeah, I watched the video. I'll stick to my AF survival knife. I take out the sharpening stone and put a magnesium fire stater in that pouch.
