Since its inception in 1939, Gerber has made a name for itself in the knife space with a more-than-80-year history of delivering well-crafted blades that offer stellar bang for your buck. In late 2020, however, the company announced the launch of its all-new Gerber Reserve lineup — a range of small-batch, premium knives made entirely in America. To kick off this exclusive new collection, Gerber debuted the Terracraft fixed-blade outdoor knife. And after the success that the knife has experienced over the last two and a half years, the brand has now decided to roll out a new limited edition, all-weather version of the fixed-blade with the Gerber Terracraft Micarta.
Made entirely in America, the Gerber Terracraft Micarta is constructed around a full-tang blade composed of premium CPM S30V blade steel. Spanning 9.125″ in total, the knife also sports a 3.875″ blade with an ultra-beefy thickness of 0.18” — making it conducive to a variety of hard bushcraft-style uses. Furthering its ability to lend itself to off-grid, bushcraft, and survival uses is the fact that the Terracraft boasts a 90° fire striking edge that was designed to be struck with a Ferro rod and a pommel that can be used as a hammer.
The biggest change to this limited edition version of the fixed-blade is the fact that its sculpted and layered G-10 handle has been jettisoned in favor of a new set of scales composed of rugged and grippy Micarta. Like the regular G-10 version of the knife, the Micarta-scaled Terracraft also ships with an included Gerber-branded leather sheath that’s also made in America. What’s more, the top-shelf craftsmanship and construction that the G-10 model boasts is also on full display on the Micarta-spec. Weighing just 6.4oz — half an ounce less than the G-10-scaled Terracraft — the knife also comes backed by the Gerber Guarantee lifetime warranty.
Priced at $250, the Gerber Terracraft Micarta is available now in limited numbers.
