Another new item which will be available this year is Gerber’s new Metolius Fixed blade knife. It is available with or without a gut-hook. The one shown in the picture is without. An interesting point for us to ponder is the price of this new offering by Gerber. The Metolius will have a 154CM steel blade. 154CM is a mid-grade steel and usually found in knives in a higher price range. Gerber may have just done something very special this time around in offering a knife of this type, with a 154CM steel blade in the $35-$40 range. We’re very excited to have a chance to look at this product and see if it delivers on the promise of what we believe will be a great-value knife. The following is information released from Gerber about the Metolius Fixed blade knife:
The Metolious Fixed Blade hunting knife employs a full tang construction for strength and durability. The handle features SoftGrip® over mold and deep finger grooves for a superior non-slip grip. A lanyard hole in the handle allows the knife to be attached to the sheath or elsewhere. The 154CM blade is available in either drop point or gut hook. Sheath included.
Estimated Street Retail $35-40.
