Gerber Basic

The Gerber Basic fixed blade knife has a sturdy full-tang handle and TacHide scales. The overall weight of this knife is just 4 ounces, and it is great for lightweight day hiking and backpacking. The Basic comes with a fitted Gerber sheath that features a reversible pocket clip for left or right-handed use. The sheath locks the knife in tightly; be prepared for that, but know that it should loosen up a little with use.
