It’s time to try the BG Ultimate Survival knife, my first trial is some lateral strength on the blade
No bad, I may turn away some big bite of wood without issues
Now some accuracy work, a trigger, like the one Bear used on the Red Rock Country episode
No bad at all, its’ possible to drive the knife where needed, using the thumb to push the blade
Now, I want to make a spear. First of all some light chopping to obtain the shaft
the knife perform surprisingly well, the blade it’s not only razor sharp, but also a bit heavier than the handle, and this help a lot
let’s build the spear, I want the same Bear used on Malaysian Archipelago episode
Now some trials, I throw several times the spear on this log
Again, well done Gerber, the knife perform well also as an improvised spear, I was especially afraid about the point, but not problem. The handle is thick enough to make difficult someway wrapping it inside the shaft, anyway at the end of the throwing the connection between knife and shaft it’s robust as at the beginning.
I’ll continue my test on the Gerber BG, at the moment anyway I’m happy about this knife, it’s not a toy, its’ a good blade. The handle is comfortable and well rounded, the blade it’s razor sharp and robust, the sheath it’s light and safe. I, as many, don’t like the serration, but I need to say that it’s not a disadvantage using the knife, and probably it will be a plus cutting cardboard, ropes, plastic ecc.
