Not a bad price for a basic knife. Can anyone who has purchased it confirm if it is well balanced?

For that low price I would not expect limited balancing was even considered.

I am pretty sure Gerber is made in USA making this knock off. I emailed them some time ago about their knives due to duties and was informed all Gerber knives are made in usa

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

I am certain YOU are wrong.

MEC, Home Depot and Canadian Tire all sell China made Gerber knives. Read this at Amazon

Gerber recalled a Machete from the Apocalypse Survival Kit in August that was made in China!

Really! They go for about $300 even on eBay!

They are supposed to be a great camping kit.

Pretty much all these Bear Grylls products are poor quality. If you're on a tight budget you'd be way better off getting a Sanrenmu knife from Exduct.com. Way better quality for less money.

I am a big fan of folding knives and multitools but I would stay away from the low end Gerbers, heard only bad things about them.

Higher end Gerbers are made in the USA, the low end stuff is all Chinese these days.

Bear Grylls Gerbers are made in China. The reviews are polar, ppl love or hate them. As for this particular listing - it looks a bit dicey as they clearly show 2 different knives. I guess one of them [without the logo] is a knock off. Plus the description is misleading as this particular knife come without sheath.
By the way, I sort of YMMV - some Home Depots are clearing out in the Ultimate BG Gerber knives (fix blade @39.99 ($59.99 originally). I saw a box @Yorkdale last Friday, about 15 pieces left.

Just got one today. It is definitely a knock off, it is not half serrated like the image shows. The real one is, but the one that I got and other have reported in the reviews are not. I actually prefer a full straight edge as it is easer to sharpen, so I will probably keep it. I like the ugly orange colour as it makes it easier to find in my bag. My reason for buying, other then impulse, was because I wanted a backup compact knife to compliment my Leatherman Charge TTi that I can abuse.

In terms of quality, it's not bad. Other then the full straight blade, it's pretty close to the original. The amazon reviews are pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/Gerber-31-000754- ... pd_cp_hi_0
