This Gator knife is a sturdy lockback folder with Gerber's legendary Gator Grip. The matte finished drop point 154-CM steel blade has a full-flat ground edge. The handle is made of glass-filled nylon with steel liners and lockback mechanism. The Gator features a rubberized alligator skin texture rubberized overmold, which has proven to be an extremely comfortable and slip-resistant handle material. The Gator Folder comes with a heavy-duty nylon sheath.
It's been over 20 years since Gerber's Gator folding knives won "Most Innovative Knife of the Year" at Blade Show, but these tried and true folders are still one of their most popular folders!
The blade is centered and very sharp. It opens and closes easily. It locks up tight. I highly recommend.
I like the old Gator knives. Use to see them in the military all the time. The few I've ordered from Blade HQ were good to go with only light tooling marks on the spine. Although the pack job/service by BHQ sucked as usually....well, these knives are fairly priced (especially when you catch them on sale), have a nice upgraded 154CM steel for the blade as apposed to the regular 420HC on the regular clip point Gators, & they just get the job done (especially in bloody, sweaty or wetty conditions). Great hunting knives.
