Gerber is crap these days. I have broken every Gerber product I have bought in the last few years. That blade is cheap Chinese steel. I wouldn't waste the money on it.

Thats pretty impressive if you can continually break a steel knife. Are you trying to cut trees down or what?

$30 is not a large investment on a quality knife. If it is, don't buy it.

My Daughter bought a Gerber several years back and that thing was like a razor when we used it to field dress a deer. I was actually surprised it was so sharp.

Man, I sent back their telescopic pruning saw 3 times to the factory for repairs and replacement. Finally, I gave up on it and bought a different brand.

I had a pair of Gerber hand pruners -broke.

I have a heavy duty Gerber hand saw -tip of the blade broke twice.

The Gerber Bone saw went dull after one season of use and, due to the hardening process cannot be re-sharpened. $20 piece of crap.

Gerber machete: absolute piece of crap, this miserable excuse for a tool. The blade doesn't even run the length of the handle. Factory sharpness is a joke and the blade is extremely flimsy. Certified piece of crap.

Gerber skinning knife with gut hook. I used it for two seasons with no problem, but it developed a snag at some point. I had to file the blade down and reset it. After reseting the blade and putting the final touches on it with a ceramic sharpener, a chunk of the blade crumbled into dust.

Its all cheap Chinese steel and often time poor designs. Spend the money on a Benchmade or other quality blades. -they'll last much longer and retain their sharpness.
