I’ve had Gerber knives for over 20 years now,
At shot show this year, I showed one of the gerber people my old Bolt Action folder, she had never seen the non removable blade model before, but then I think the knife was almost as old as she was.
The grylls knives are bettet than many reviews give them credit for.
The revamped parang is actually a decent tool, although the sheath still stinks.
If they sold them without the idiot markings, they’d sell much better.
Many years ago, I sold a number of the original LMF to guys headed off to Gulf War I, as well as some other knives. I wouldn’t let those guys buy junk, and it showed when I received a couple of letters from overseas from the guys thanking me for putting them into the better knives.
