Gerber strongarm Coyote brown with multi carrying sheath system. AVAILABLE IN PLAIN OR SERRATED EDGE. PLEASE NOTE WHEN PLACING ORDER. DEFAULT 0N THIS ORDER IS SERRATED BLADE. REVIEW: Gerber has been making survival knives for the US Military since 1968.
The StrongArm Fixed Blade carries on their legacy of tough-as-hell fixed blade knives for combat and survival applications. With a partially serrated edge, full tang 420HC blade with black ceramic coating, the StrongArm was designed around the fundamentals of military survival training.
The handle offers the user a solid grip on the knife in all conditions with its diamond-texture rubberized handle that is capped with a striking pommel for effective rescue operations. The StrongArm also comes with a sheath that can be mounted in a variety of ways. With simple snap-together components, the user can mount the knife vertically on MOLLE, horizontally on a standard 1.75 tactical belt, or in a traditional drop-leg belt mount fashion.Look & Feel (Overall & Handle) This knife definitely looks and feels like a military knife. From the coyote brown handle to the multi-mount sheath, its just a strong, military look.
You can easily see this knife strapped to a Marines leg or to his Molle pack. For a full-tang 3/16 thick knife, its remarkably light and feels very balanced in the hand the weight falls nicely to the tip of the blade which is helpful in most circumstances. Further, the diamond pattern rubber overmold gives this knife an extra grippy feel. You dont feel like youre going to lose it while youre working.The matching guard on both sides of the handle protects the index finger well and gives the thumb a comfortable resting place when applying pressure to the spine during a cut.

Sharpness & Cutting The StrongArm was sharp out of the box. Youll get a decent bite when you run a finger across the 420HC partially serrated blade. As you can see in the video, this knife performed well against heavy-duty corrugated cardboard, both in slicing and sawing (with the serrated portion of the blade). The StrongArm also performed well on the plunge and pull cuts through cardboard. Beyond that, this knife handled detail work (fine carving, notching, and whittling) just fine, and we assume it would easily cut the tag out of your new cammo jacket too, but we didnt test that.
All in all, the StrongArm was sharp and performed well in all of our general cut testing. We like the black ceramic coating, because it gives the knife a low visual profile, which is great for a military knife. Further, we noted the 90-degree spine on this knife, but didnt test its ferro rod striking ability.
The Multi-Mount Sheath Its complicated, but extremely useful, and luckily the StrongArm comes with a good instruction manual insert inside the package. After trying to do it without reading the instructions, Susan snatched the sheath from our hands and read the instructions which made it much easier. There are actually five components to the sheath that allow you to mount it in a variety of ways.With Susans ability to read, we were able to easily mount it horizontally on a belt, vertically on a backpack, and again in a traditional drop leg position with a tie-down. We really liked the sheaths versatility.
