Gerber Bear Grylls Survival AO, 3" ComboEdge Blade, Nylon/Rubber Handle
Surviving the unexpected is about being prepared, and the Bear Grylls Survival AO Folding Knife exceeds the standard. Few people know more about survival than Bear Grylls, ex-British Special Forces officer, experienced mountaineer and respected survival trainer.
Taking advantage of Gerber's decades of experience and Bear Grylls' adventure knowledge, the Survival AO folder gives its user the ability to engage with the surroundings in perpetual survival mode.
Quick access to the blade of a folding knife is imperative in survival situations. The Survival AO, featuring an assisted opening blade that deploys reliably and quickly with one hand, responds for instant use when the situation demands it.
Using Gerber's FAST 2.0 technology, the Survival AO implements both a plunge lock and a safety lock. The safety barrel lock will keep the blade closed when in a pocket, or as a secondary lock when opened.
Closing the knife is a simple one-hand process: after the plunge lock is released, simply press it down against a firm surface.

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.
