Gerber's iconic Gator line gets a boost with premium S30V steel. Semi mirror-polished blades and bolsters offer classic protection against corrosion and undeniable beauty. Its handle has been updated with a Gerber logo stamped steel blade guard and stylized Gator Grip rubber. This model has a full-tang drop point blade and includes an alligator-embossed leather sheath.
Information from Gerber
I recently moved to Washington from Colorado. My most-used knives had been from ESEE.. But here in the new state, I wanted a workhorse knife to use in the woods and while boating that would be a little lower maintenance due to constant wet and occasional salt water. The gator seems like it is going to be a great option. The high-quality stainless steel was the biggest point for me. But the size and shape of the blade, as well as the excellent grip are perfect for me as well. I expect I'm going to have to add my own kydex sheath for it though, as the leather would stay pretty wet while I'm carrying it.
