Think you can tough out the harshest conditions just like Bear Grylls — the star of various television survival series like Man vs. Wild? Before you try, make sure you have this great pocket knife in hand so you can tackle the elements with confidence.

A few years back, Gerber teamed up with Bear Grylls to bring a line of inexpensive but functional tools that could excel in the outdoors. If you think these knives are nothing but gimmicks, you’re sorely mistaken. One of the best-received models is the Gerber Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife.

The Folding Sheath Knife is a robust folder with a 3.6-inch blade made from high carbon stainless steel. A drop point blade with partial serrations makes this folder versatile for all types of situations. Ambidextrous thumb studs facilitate easy opening while the reliable back lock keeps the blade engaged through all types of abuse.

Its ergonomic textured rubber handle provides a comfortable and dependable grip whether used in scorching temperatures or wet conditions.

Although the black and bright orange motif is present in all tools of the Bear Grylls line, it serves a dual purpose of also being visible if you happen to drop it in the forest.

An included mildew-resistant nylon sheath allows you to carry this knife easily when attached to your belt or pack.
