I decided I was actively anti-Gerber when they retained bear grylls as spokesperson. Spending money on that advertising instead of a quality product is exactly the problem.

My Gerber MK II and MK I knives are older than bear grylls.  The knives made by Gerber over 50 years ago are much better than their current products.

I agree.  I bought a Mark 2 back in 82.  It was a great quality knife, but really light in the pants for anything other than thrusting. Traded it to a buddy of mine, for my first KABAR.

i much preferred the heft of the KABAR. to the Gerber.  Much better for general use, in the field, to be honest. Of course the Gerber was really only meant for one thing and that was fighting. That's like comparing a thoroughbred race horse to a plow mule, both will get you from Point A to Point B.  The race horse will get you there much faster and you will look sexy doing it. But the mule will plow a field, pull a wagon and drag a tree, while on the way. That was what I found out about the Gerber, in the field.  The KABAR was much more useful.  But damn, it sure wasn't very sexy. 😆
