SGSG-Gerber Knives Review!!

One gift I can always be sure that just about anyone in my family would enjoy receiving is a knife. Yes, even the girls-I personally have a pretty nice collection started, as do several others in the family. So when trying to get some different companies and products in the gift guide, I immediately thought of Gerber Gear, probably my favorite go-to brand for a knife! I have several Gerber pocketknives and tools, so I was pleased to add yet another-the Gerber Instant.

The Gerber Instant is fairly new, and features a blade close to 3 1/2" long. When folded closed, it's not quite 5", so it's a nice sturdy size. Not too small, yet not so big it's uncomfortable for carrying in your pocket. My favorite aspect of the Instant is the one-handed opening. Simply flick the little knob, and your blade springs open! (This quite impressed several little boys, who thought "girls" didn't carry knives!). The knife also locks open, but a simple push of a button releases the locking mechanism. 

The Gerber Instant is a very sleek looking knife, with the black composite handle. It's also very lightweight, only 4 ounces! Honestly, among all my knives, the Gerber Instant is my new favorite, and now goes just about everywhere with me!

Gerber has many other products that would make great gifts; knives, tools, lights, and outdoor gear. Check out their selection for the man (or maybe woman) on your list who enjoys the outdoors!

  1. Awesome knife! could really come in handy, thanks for the review.

  2. My son is an avid outdoorsman. He would really enjoy a knife like this. Nice review.

  3. Love that it's easy to open with one hand. I have a couple of pocket knives, and they are so hard to open, I never bother with them.
