The Gerber Gator Folding Drop Point Fine Edge Knife features surgical stainless steel blade and patented handle that set the knife apart from the competition. The Gator folders has handle made of a hard inner core of glass filled polypropylene, with Santoprene rubber molded and chemically bonded around it, essentially combining the two materials into one piece. This creates a handle that is soft and tacky when gripped, even when wet. This handle is lightweight, yet exceptionally durable. The shallow drop point is excellent for hunting as well as general purpose tasks.
