I was looking through my new Cabela' fall master catalog when I spotted the photo of the "new" (to me anyway) Gerber Profile II fixed blade knife. They have it priced at $24.95. I ran a google search and found out that walley world is had them for $19.95. I hate going anywhere near walley world but five bucks plus the shipping charge is money saved. Every man has his weakness and mine is the inability to pass up on a knife that peeks my curiousity, especially if it is inexpensive. The blade is four inches long with a full length false edge on top and is very close to razor sharp right out of the box. The blade is coated with a non reflective corrosion resistant material. The tang has a non slip semi soft rubber handle. The tang is a uniform 1/16 of a inch taller than the rubber handle, it's hard to tell when you grip the handle. I have a medium/large hand, and the handle doesn't quite fit my hand comfortably. The knife seems to be well balanced. Other than the Gerber logo there are no other marking on the blade or handle. I have no idea where this knife was made. The sheath is made out of heavy cordora material with no plastic insert. The belt loop will handle a belt up to three inches in size. The cordora is a good heavy weight material and the inner belt loop portion has a rubbery lining that will be againist the belt. I have not yet had a chance to use the knife or put any wear or tear on the sheath. So it's long term suitability as a "in the field sheath knife" is not known. The knife could be a little better but considering that I only paid $19.95 for it I am not disappointed with it.
