His show takes a while to film just one season. They have to pick locations, obtain visas, contact guides and advisors, get a budget for those guides and advisors, train him before he even goes into the field, THEN go to the location, scout it, etc etc etc. It's a LOT of work. Or maybe Bear Grylls just ate him, who knows?

It's overpriced for americans, but for europeans it's exactly as expensive as imported american knives. But no, I wouldn't pay that much for this knife. Looks good without the serrations though! Really can't say I don't like it.

How well does the blade stand up to battoning with a rock? How well does the edge hold up to carving a metal match?

"Heat treated to give high stain resistance"

huh?:confused:

Bear and Les should have a Survive-off. Drop them in some remote location (no hotels or freeways nearby) with identical equipment, and see who lasts the longest. One rule: You can't eat the other guy.

Actually, that's unfair. I'm certain it's a very well made knife. But watching Bear abuse his knife like he does makes me cringe. People get disgusted when he drinks his urine or eats a giant maggot. But it's the way he treats his knife that irritates me the most.

I don't really even watch "Man Vs. Wild" much anymore. It's just not interesting anymore. "Survivor Man" is much more interesting, and realistic.

Bear might have stabbed Les with his $700 Bear Grylls special rambo knife.

"The Bear Grylls knife has a specifically designed action sheath featuring horizontal carry with double knife detainment."

lol!

We can buy a fallkniven F1 for 1/3 of the price of that.

Great show, the camera work alone is great, and long time lapses prove that he is doing all the work. He has an amazing amount of patience, I would probably be a little angry if my shelter caught fire or I spent a few hours seal fishing or igloo building with now luck.

I hope this doesn't turn into a bear bash, even though I agree with you. Maybe we can have this thread moved to the survival section?

i wonder if him being sas would play into that... or if he was?

Is the blade strong enough to open the wine bottle in his motel room while he is on vacation?

Grylls doesn't practice survival. He stages a show where he pretends to survive through athletic derring do and outrageous culinary fare, most of which he doesn't swallow. Stroud actually practices survival techniques and endures a good deal of starvation.

In a hypothetical faceoff, whth equal rules for both contestants, Grylls would have to drop the sensationalism and heroics to be competitive. Stroud would not have to change much except, that he would be freed of the time and energy intensive chores of carrying, setting up and maintaining his own cameras.
