Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Parong w/ Nylon Sheath
A smaller version of the original, the Compact Parong still packs quite a punch. With a tried and true blade shape, this lighter weight version is great for all-day use in the woods or the backyard. The full tang high carbon steel blade holds a sharp edge and the rubber handle provides the grip needed for all weather conditions. Keeping it all together is the ballistic nylon sheath which features the Land to Air rescue signals on the back which doubles as storage for Bear's Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
