The Gator Fixed blade knife utilizes Gerber's famous Gator Grip handle, which has no peer when it comes to all-out grip. The inner core of the handle is glass-filled nylon. Then it is chemically bonded to the outer surface, which is molded Santoprene rubber. The result is a soft, tactile grip over a very strong structure. This Gator Fixed Blade has a hollow ground 420HC steel blade with a bead blast finish. The nylon sheath is rugged and features a molded plastic insert.
