According to the manufacturer (Gerber), The Bear Grylls Ultimate Fixed Blade Knife was the world's best selling outdoor knife in 2011. You can get this by logging onto your account or by requesting one from customer service if you checked out as a guest. Well I’m pretty jazzed to get this review of the NEW Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate PRO Survival Knife out to you after a few weeks of research, use and testing. Now the big, huge difference between these knives is the full tang construction of the Ultimate PRO knife vs. Full tang construction is regarded by most experts as the strongest, most durable way to make a knife. The Ultimate PRO has a drop point blade… which simply means that the spine side of the blade curves down until it meets the tip of the blade.
Drop point blades are common for survival and general purpose utility knifes because they make for a strong tip and tough knife across the entire surface of the blade. Serrations are great for cutting things like rope… and extending the usefulness of your knife long after the fine edge is quite dull. But a serrated edge can get in the way of many bushcraft tasks and make fine slicing, cutting or skinning difficult.
My knife came quite sharp enough out of the box to shave hair off of the back of my hand and slice a long thin piece of plastic off of a ball point pen body… similar to the performance of a razor blade. In my testing I was surprised at how well this edge held up while performing many tasks and after some knife throwing and a bunch of drops on rocks and frozen soil. On the spine side there is a notched out, coating-free striker area for use as the fire steel striker. But this choil’s true purpose is to allow the blade to be sharpened all the way to the end of the edge without interference of the handle or hand guard. The Ultimate PRO Knife comes with a newly designed emergency whistle that seems more durable than the previous one is quite loud and comes attached to the knife with it’s integrated lanyard.
I can confidently say… you should not have any issues with THIS pommel or tang even in hard-use situations.
The handle is made up of the knife tang and what seem to be two rugged polymer slabs that are secured to the knife using these 4 star or torque bolts and two permanent metal insets that are inside the two lashing holes at the top of the grip. Most of the polymer handle is covered over with what feels like the same, rubberized grippy material that’s used on just about every other knife and tool in this line. The only noticeable difference between this knife and the original version is the weight of the knife… which doesn’t feel heavy, but actually makes the knife feel a bit more substantial. The knife balances well with the center of gravity in the area of the the forefinger handle cutout. Now in addition to the lanyard hole, we have two additional holes on the hand guard that go through the handle slabs and tang that are strategically placed to help you lash this knife onto a pole to make a spear. The lashing holes also serve another important task as part of the friction lock system that holds the knife in its sheath. And like the previous version of this knife, we have a handle strap with a Velcro-like closure system to keep the knife tight against the sheath when not in use. The sheath is designed for left or right-hand carry and has a hole in the bottom of the knife compartment to allow water to drain through if you go for a swim or end up out in a storm with this knife.
On the back of the ballistic nylon upper part of this sheath there is a nylon vertical belt loop that should work well with belts up to 2 inches wide. Next, let’s look at the carbide bladed pull-through sharpener, which is a better field sharpening solution than the diamond stone sharpener that is on the Original Ultimate Knife sheath… simply because sharpening your knife with this sharpener is easy for anyone, regardless of skill level. The cool thing about this pull sharpener, is that it’s designed to perfectly sharpen the entire fine edge of this knife because of the spacing the choil provides between the hand guard and the edge. For some tips on using the sharpener for your knife, and a full demonstration, check out my full review on YouTube by searching, “Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Knife Review”. Last but not least, on the front of this sheath you will find a cleverly stored ferro rod, which is positioned right side up… instead of upside down (like on the Original version). This change alone should about ensure that your ferro rod doesn’t accidentally fall out of the sheath and get lost in the wilderness, which COULD happen in the previous version of this sheath.
The ferrocerium used in this rod seems to be pretty high quality, so starting a fire with it was really easy.


WE TOOK OFF A FULL STAR because to make all of these upgrades, the street price of the knife went from sub $40 US up to around $70 US.
And honestly, in the competitive category for survival knives… a 4 out of 5 star rating is pretty darn good. SO if you like your current Bear Grylls Utimate Survival Knife… You’re gonna LOVE the NEW Ultimate PRO!!! With its steel upgrade, full tang construction and all the goodies that come with it… this knife is a great choice for those who are ready to upgrade from the Original Bear Grylls Survival Knife. Do a review on the bear grylls parang it’s confusing that they have new and old parangs and some are recalled some are not and if its worth getting for the price. The new knife off gerber is $105.00 US you said it would be realeased of gerber for $70.00 US is their something that brought the price up?
Let’s just say if a person was to choose between Gerber LMF II & this knife, which knife would you prefer? I can’t find it in Vancouver, I can only find the other Gerber survival knives, anyone can tell me where to get it? As you commented re, I was disappointed that Gerber removed the molle loops from the sheath for this knife. My bottom line: I DO recommend this knife so long as the buyer is aware of its cosmetic issues and the lack of molles. Can you please elaborate bacause I think I’m lost with your explaination on why you removed a full star on its rating.
And my comment on the color and design of the handle, I think the reason why they made it to have such bright colors as orange was because in a survival situation (unless you’re in combat and behind enemy lines) you want to be seen right?
The Timberland GT Scramble Mid Leather Waterproof Boots have classic style and rugged design.
An essential feature on the Ultimate Fixed Blade, this Ferrocerium Fire Starter Replacement is offered to replace that one you used up surviving out in the elements or maybe the one that you lost while out there in it. Considering that this knife has a horrible name behind it from its issues at release and persisting issues with this starter, I would suggest dropping the price of this striker. Great after sales service from a dedicated team of people, Alex looked after me and I'm all the way over in the UK!!! I actually made a spear with my survival knife and dispatched a wild boar which we ate all.
I love this knife but my fire starter is gone an I have Know idea what the heck happend to it.
Always have my blade with me, cuz we feed the critters early morning {in the dark, never know what is lurking out there} and then again back to the barn late at night. When I got the knife, the first thing that i did was take the whistle thong off and attach the rod to it.
Great quality, and it gives me the drive to me out in nature and explore with my perfect knife. Take the whistle off the end, loop it around the hole on the starter, and velcro it through the velcro loop at the blade tip end.
Take the whistle off the handle of the knife, attach it to the fire starter, then flip it up and secure it under the Velcro with the Bear logo on it.
Based on Gerber's world-beating Ultimate Fixed Blade Knife, the new Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade takes the Survival Knife to another level. The most you will be charged is $10.This reflects the high cost of a 2-3 day tracked delivery service. So today I’ll dig in and look at this knife from just about every angle and see if this knife is garbage, good or anywhere close to great. This knife’s choil has enough space for my forefinger to wrap around for better leverage and control in fine cutting and slicing.
These holes perfectly align with 4 raised bumps (two on each side) toward the top of sheath that work together to firmly lock the knife in the sheath when it’s not in use. It’s a great choice for camping, backpacking, hiking, bug-out bags, emergency kits, responsible scouts, for bushcraft or as very nice general utility knife around the home or shop to use every day or have handy just in case. I am wondering if it is possible to remove the plastic knife handle off the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Survival knife without breaking it and leave it bare metal, (no pun inteneded but still funny) so i can wrap paracord around the handle and still put the plastic handle back on after taking the paracord off, without having to get another knife. All your videos have helped me and my little brother become more educated in survival techniques.


The gerber strong-arm is made out of 420hc stainless steel and i hear that it does no have good edge retention,The gerber ultimate pro survival knife has 9cr19mov stainless steel and according to your review it performed very well. Named the "Salmon Sole", the limited edition shoe features a full navy nubuck upper, mixed with a grey nubuck branded heel and a smooth leather tongue. Crafted with a premium leather upper for durability and abrasion resistance, this hiking shoe has a waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry from time on the trail to days spent in town. I added a strap to the sheath so the fire starter can't fall out, very easy and looks and works very well.
I ordered a backup for the inevitable moment when the fire starter falls out and I don't notice. I would give it a 5 if I weren't having to order a new one because mine fell out on what was basically a stroll through the woods. After i did this, I would put the rod back in its place, and fold the sheath on the lanyard with the whistle sticking out one of the sides. And I think that those guys who lost their fire starter didn't put it all the way in as it should be. But when I was canoeing on a trip I took the blade out of the sheath and the flint flew out of its holder into the lake. Now the starter can't get lost, and bonus it gets the whistle away from the hammer end of the knife. Does this means that this knife cannot compare or can not be on par with these ‘heavy-hitters’?
The shoe is lightweight thanks to an EVA midsole, it provides all-day cushioning and shock absorption. Paid it forward by giving each of my best buds (4) the gift of this bad to the bone, must have, refuse to ever part ways with, outdoors (or indoors,maybe, if the need arises) tool. However after purchasing the 30-000751 survival knife with fire starter I have been dissapointed that the firestarter insists on falling out of the sheath.
I took a 10 inch steel fishing leader and attached it to the starter and the sheath,works great.
Featuring a full fine edge and an easily accessible carbide pull-through sharpener integrated into the sheath, the Ultimate Pro will always be sharp when you need it most. The knife comes housed in a nylon and hard rubber military-grade sheath, integrated with a diamond-coated knife sharpener, emergency whistle, fire starter and survival guide. I have heard about the Gerber Bear Grylls Paracod Fixed Blade Knife, but i want to know about this one, thank you in advance and have a great day.
I did however cut the small plastic collar off the fire starter that holds it in the sheath by accident.
Would suggest everyone tie them to the knife sheath with a 6 or 8 inch piece of parachute cord.
I have lost two now and have resorted to buying a third and NOT placing it in the sheath and carrying it elsewhere, which sort of defeats the purpose.
The vertically mounted ferrocerium fire starter will spark in all conditions while the updated lanyard whistle ensures you can be heard in an emergency.
Kind of wish the fire starter wasn't in the sheath upside down now I have it tied to the whistle. Anybody using this item to make fires should also carry a zip lock bag filled with dryer lint.
Bear Grylls and the fine folks at Gerber for a product worth its weight in whatever one holds dear.
Also, removing the handle slabs with eliminate your ability to use the knife sheath since the handles hold the knife in the sheath via friction. Grylls initials, I made short work of the orange with some Krylon ultra-flat back camo paint intended for plastyic surfaces.
