A silent predator that commands respect, an alligator is the ultimate symbol of quiet strength and unrivaled power. A best-seller for 25 years, the iconic Gator line has earned a place in Gerber’s storied history, drawing inspiration from the very animal that it was created to emulate. The elevated, first class reincarnation of the original, the Gerber Gator Guthook fuses American-made excellence, premium materials and an innovative design for the modern hunter and knife enthusiast alike. The full tang 4" S30V steel blade will last generations, while an upgraded Gator Grip handle and steel bolsters provide ultimate control. The addition of the gut hook feature makes cleaning game easier than ever, tackling delicate and tough tasks alike. Machine polished and semi-mirrored, the blade and bolster offer stylish protection against corrosion as well as an unrivaled aesthetic. When you're out in the field, conditions can go from dry to wet and back again at a moment’s notice. Your grip needs to stand up to any task you ask of it – enter the rebirth of the Gator Grip. Gerber's most stylized design yet, the Gator Premium handle boasts glass-filled nylon wrapped in a highly rubberized grip that keeps the control in your capable hands. The lightly textured, grooved nylon top provides a chafe resistant barrier for bare hands, and the high polished rear pommel and front bolster create a natural balance to comfortably use all day. Advanced technique couples with a grippy reptilian texture to deliver a stunningly reliable and ultimately unsurpassable grip in any situation. Proudly conceived and produced in Gerber's Portland, Ore. factory, the Gator Premium Fixed Blade is the benchmark against which all other hunting knives are measured. Each knife includes a tough leather sheath stamped with the Gerber logo – a subtle reminder of the heritage you hold in your hand.
