You may be wondering why I have a Bear Grylls Gerber Survival Compact Scout Knife since I do not go camping, hunting, live in the country or in a jungle.
I think EVERYONE should own a knife!
Who Is Bear Grylls And Gerber?
First let’s decide if the knife is being made by someone who knows about knives.
Bear Grylls is the name of a British adventurer, writer and television presenter named Edward Michael “Bear” Grylls. His television series “Man vs. Wild,” was originally known as “Born Survivor: Bear Grylls.” Bear Grylls is known for the survival in the wild theme.
Gerber is a company based in Portland, Oregon, USA, and is renowned as a master of knives and tools for their quality, reliability and innovation. The Gerber products are backed by their famous lifetime warranty.
A knife designed by Bear Grylls and Gerber sounds like a sure thing doesn’t it? Well, let me tell you about one knife in particular.
Bear Grylls Gerber Survival Compact Scout Knife
I got my Bear Grylls Gerber Compact Scout Knife from Swords Of The East. It is so lightweight and compact that I can slip it into my pocket and totally forget that it is in there, so obviously it is also easy to keep in my purse or car.
The Compact Scout Knife has a very good, multi-use serrated edge and conventional blade that is not only very sharp, but also cleans easily. I think the Bear Grylls Gerber Survival Compact Scout Knife would make a great gift for anyone at any age and it is quite easy to order it from Swords Of The East.

I guess you are wondering what I have used my knife for since I’m not usually in the wild. One reason I love this knife is because I always worry about getting in a wreck and having the seat belt get stuck. If that happened I would be trapped, but with a survival knife, I could cut the seat belt quickly and get out of the car. I haven’t had that experience, but with the knife in my purse or car, I will be prepared if it does happen and that brings me comfort.
So far I have used my Bear Grylls Gerber Survival Compact Scout Knife to:
- Open boxes
- Cut nylon ties
- Cut fresh flowers
- Cut a thread off my jeans
- Remove a rock from the grooves in sole of my sneakers
- Cut a piece of paper to test how sharp the blade really is and it IS SHARP
- Cut my uncooked salmon in half so that I see how it would work when I go fishing some day
Of course, you never know when I might be hanging out in the jungle and will really need my knife.
Well…you never know when it might happen!!!
