Re: [BackpackGearTest] Gerber Gator folding knife
- Hi Jamie,
Welcome to BGT! Thanks for the review of the Gerber
Gator. Before you upload your review I would like to
clear up a point and make a few corrections.
I'm not clear on whether you are reviewing the Gator
in its fixed-blade or folding version. Your report
seems to reference both.
I believe you meant 'makes' and 'bearing' in the
following: 'The strength of the steel make it very
reliable and it is going to take a lot of weight
bearding down on the blade ...'
I would remove 'put' from the following: 'I weigh 175
pounds and I have been able to get this thing to fold
put but it took a lot more effort...'
There should be a comma after 'days' in the following:
'I have used this knife in every season, in the rain,
snow, clear sunny days and in an island environment
You need to address the three issues above before
uploading your report. The following are just
suggestions and you can ignore them if you wish.
I would suggest that you include a little more detail
about the knife such as:
What do you think of the Kraton handle and Zytel
frame? Do they make a difference in the field?
What type of steel is used to make the blade and how
well does it take and hold an edge?
Do you have the drop-point or clip-point model and why
did you choose it?
I think someone who is interested in this knife could
really benefit from your field experience if you
covered these points.
