Do your son enjoy going out on a camping spree with some of his friends? Well I supposed that as long as it is safe, it will be a lot better than knowing that your son stays late at night being into a bar or any other similar place, right? On that note, why not give your son something that he can use everytime he engages in such activity? In my case, I decided to support this little hobby of my son so I gave him a Gerber 22-01629 Knife which he can use while out there camping. It was a simple present but he definitely loved it.
I have enough knowledge of camping because I used to do it before. Therefore, I am fully aware of some of the problems or difficulties that my son might encounter when he is out there with his friends. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to give him a Gerber 22-01629 Knife. I was hoping that by doing so, I will be able to help him out while he is away from our home. I’m glad I did because based on his stories, the knife I gave him turned out to be a lifesaver for him and his friends multiple times.
This item belongs to the fixed-blade hunting knives category. It has partially serrated blade and has designs that allows it to be effectively used in activities such as camping. Here are some of its salient features:
Features of Gerber 22-0162
Comes with partially serrated blade
Do not judge too early, but despite its partially serrated blade, this knife packs incredible sharpness. Its blade offers versatile usage because of its design so you can use it to accomplish a lot more. It is also relatively strong, which makes it perfect for heavy applications such as digging holes in the ground and the like. The Gerber 22-01629 Knife can come in handy in a lot of situations while you are outside and way from the comforts of your home.
Comes with unique glass breaker
If you will notice the design of the knife, you will see that it has a pointed end (rear part). That part is not only for show. It can be used to shatter glasses. This proves that this particular item can also be used even if you are not in camping. While you are in your home or in your car, if you need to break glasses, you just hit it with the end of your knife and job’s all done.
Reliable handle for better grip
If you will notice, the handle of this knife appears to be dotted. But that is not just for show as well. The design of the handle allows the user to have a better hold of the knife, keeping it secure in their hands even when it is wet. This feature is what makes this knife usable in any kind of environment.
