Gerber Bear Grylls Survival AO Spring Assisted Knife (3" Gray Serr) 31-002530

The Bear Grylls Survival AO spring assisted knife features Gerbers F.A.S.T. 2.0 technology. The Survival AO uses both a plunge lock and a safety lock. The safety barrel lock will keep the blade closed when in your pocket or as a secondary lock when opened. The easy to use plunge lock makes it easy to close the knife with just one hand. The blade has dual thumb studs and a partially serrated edge. The handle is made of durable glass filled nylon with Gerber's familiar rubber overmold. The removable pocket clip and lanyard hole provide multiple carry options.

Customer Reviews

I own 2
Erik H. on Aug 11, 2018

This knife is surpisingly great! The handle is ergromic and grippy. The asist works snappy and locks both open and closed. No accidents with this guy. Blade is thin, takes a good edge, and locks tight. This is probably the best assisted knife for under $30. I actually own 2.

It's definitely a Gerber
James S. on Dec 11, 2018

The ergonomics of the handle are decent. That's as far as any pros go. The thumb stud tears my thumb up and, additionally, the blade is extremely hard to deploy. It's an assisted opener and I have to use 2 hands to open it! The steel used for the blade feels cheap and I have seen videos where the tip breaks off during minor testing. Update: A few days ago I was opening the knife when suddenly the spring bar that assists with opening snapped off. Awkwardly enough, the blade opens and closes like a dream since that assisted opener broke off. Overall regardless, I do not recommend this knife.
