Gerber has been making survival knives for the US Military since 1968. The StrongArm Fixed Blade carries on their legacy of dependable, hard-working fixed blade knives for survival and combat applications. The StrongArm Fixed Blade was designed around the fundamentals of military survival training. It utilizes a rubberized diamond texture grip and adds a striking pommel and lanyard hole at the base.
The StrongArm features a versatile modular sheath system. Snap together components allow users the option of vertical carry with the MOLLE, horizontal carry with a standard 1.75" tactical belt, or in a traditional drop leg mount.
This is an awesome knife for the price. Razor sharp out of the box and very easy to touch up and re-sharpen. The handle is solid and has plenty of grip to it. Feels like quality in the hand and you can tell it’s ready to do work by the weight and blade thickness. The sheath IMO is just meh. I would recommend a custom leather or kydex sheath. Other than that you seriously can’t go wrong buying this knife.
I really like this knife. It’s tough, great blade, great handle. I would recommend it to anyone.
Took this thing to town while camping on all sorts of tasks. Its a beast. Came out of the box razor sharp (surprisingly!) easy to re-sharpen too! Great grip, comfortable and solid. Overall great for the price. BHQ shipping experts at it again, quality guys!
Ordered this knife, had an issue with the strap snap Blade HQ made it right 100%! Amazing knife but totally amazing customer service! I recommend blade hq to anyone and everyone they're the only ones I'll be ordering from from now on, as long as they have what I'm looking for. Thanks for everything blade hq!
This beast is ready for a wide variety of wilderness challenges. Sharp, strong and very capable. Many outings, and has not let me down yet!
Nine things I admire about this knife: *Razor sharp out of the box *Grippy rubber handle *Esthetic, pleasing blade shape and drop point, and VERY usable *Thick blade steel can dish out the abuse *Pommel is what I'd also call tactical - in CQC you can nail an adversary with it *Versatile sheath also allows for retention *Reasonable, light weight, and well balanced *Gerber - U.S.A. *Price is very outstanding
Great knife. Study built. Great feel in the hand. Well balanced. Great sheath.
Perfect knife, with innovative sheath (different mounting solutions).
This knife is gorgeous! Exactly what I was expecting. Great weight and balance, perfect indexing and strong.
I received my Gerber StrongArm today and was pleasantly surprised. Arrived very sharp and very balanced. I have to say I love this knife !!
I want to first start out by stating that the customer service from BHQ is outstanding. I was extremely excited to receive this knife in the mail and upon receipt I unsnapped the knife to connect it to my molle setup. However, during that process the button ripped a hole through the webbing. After looking at it more carefully the button itself had been damaged during the manufacturing process. I contacted BHQ who promptly took care of the situation and a new knife was issued. As for the knife itself, it feels great in the hand. I absolutely love the diamond pattern rubber grip! It can serve a multitude or purposes which makes it one of the most versatile knives I own. The biggest selling point to me was the ambidextrous sheath and the multiple ways you can wear it. You can definitely tell that there was a lot of thought that went into this product. Overall I am very satisfied with the knife and would highly recommend it to anyone.
I've beat the crap out of my strongarm and it's still going. The grip is the bomb and so is the ambi sheath. It attaches to my tac bag really well so I don't have to belt carry all my gear. 10/10 would buy again.
I haven't had a real chance to test out this knife, but so far it seems great. The knife fits comfortably in the hand, and the steel is not bad at all. The sheath is also great. The knife snaps into the retention system affirmatively and securely. It is also very versatile giving you a few different ways to carry it (you can see the different ways on youtube). Bottom line, for the price, I'm not sure you can find a better workhorse knife than the Gerber Strongarm.
Great steel choice, perfect blade length, versatile sheath. Nothing more needs to be said.
This is my not playing around knife .....if I know I have some hard work ahead of me, this is the first one I grab.... For hiking, camping, long road trips....it's this one.... If it calls for a decent fixed blade, always this one....
USA made, full tang and no serrations! Finally something usefull and for this price, well, it is awesome! If you are intrested go and youtube the gerber strongarm gauntlet, it will simplify your decision
Very comfortable and the sheath is extremely versatile! Blade steel isn't the best, but it's easy to tune up when necessary. It's really good for 420HC.
This is the only knife I take with me when I go camping, and I’ve never felt like I need anything else. It’s strong, sharp, and it carries awesome because of its well thought out sheath. Love this knife.
This is my third StrongArm knife. Two reside in my vehicle GHB. This knife comes sharp out of the box, and is a real workhorse. Much like the military LMF II, but without the holes to lash to make a spear, but I'm sure it could be worked out. The sheath is acceptable, and holds the knife securely with a click. Cannot beat the price for a very good survival knife.
Knife is great - as others have reviewed. I received a sheath that is missing the MOLLE snap strip so the horizontal carry is not functional. Blade HQ customer support told me too bad, contact manufacturer. Be careful of your intended carry position as you may be missing parts!
