Chances are you’re not going to be carrying the Gerber Combat Fixed Knife ($154) into war anytime soon. Of course, not every battle is fought in a war zone, and for the everyday soldier—the outdoorsman, the handyman, the always-prepared—the CFB is just the kind of knife you’ll want at your side.
With a 4.2- inch high-carbon stainless steel blade mounted on a 5-inch handle, the CFB boasts excellent balance and tough construction. The serrated lower edge expands the blade’s cutting capabilities, while a rubberized outer handle and rounded pommel provide all the grip you’ll need. Couple that with a molded plastic sheath and you’ve got the perfect all-uses blade to carry into any task or adventure.
