Gerber and Bear Grylls are at it again, this spring releasing a hatchet, two knives and a flashlight. The Paracord knife and Intense torch (below) are available now on Gerber’s survival gear page, and the Hatchet and new Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade are coming soon (likely mid–April). Here’s a quick look at the line. —Stephen Regenold
Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet — 20 ounces light and about 10 inches long, this survival hatchet is made for firewood procurement in the backcountry or for building an ad hoc shelter to stay a night “in a dire survival situation,” as Gerber puts it. Handle is made of polypropylene and with a rubber grip. $48.
Gerber Bear Grylls Paracord Fixed Blade — At nearly 8 inches long and with a paracord-wrap handle (45 inches of cord), this survival-oriented blade caught our eye. $37.
Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Fixed Blade — 10-inch, full-tang blade with fire starter, pommel, sharpener, whistle, and other tools built-in. $105.
Takes 2 AA batteries and can run for 17 hours on low. High beam is 140 lumens, or enough to light up a trail for a hundred feet. Six inches long and waterproof. $63.
