    Great little knife!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This knife is great! It was my first knife investment (cheap) and it works wonders on easy camping trips. You never realize how much it will come in handy until you bring it with you! It is, however, very small, so keep that in mind. So small that the first time I took it somewhere, I ended up losing it and had to buy a second one.

    I Forget It's in my pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It's that light and small. I am pretty anal when it comes to cutting weight. I think knifes are usually just wasted weight/space, but you could carry around 15 of these before you noticed any increase in weight. Of course the blade is not as good as some larger knifes and you won't be splitting logs with this bad boy, but it cuts!

    The backpacking knife.

      Need a bigger knife? Why? This knife is all you need to move fast and light through the backcountry. It's easy to deal with and stays razor sharp. It may not be flashy or help bring down a bull elk. But if you are counting ounces in order to reduce pounds this knife is the only blade you will need.

      A good alternative if size and weight is your primary concern

        First thing you'll comment on when you see it in person will be on how light it is. Then you'll comment that it's sharper than you'd expected it to be (I wouldn't call it very sharp, ultra sharp, or use any other hyperbole because that really isn't the case. It won't shave the hair off your arms for example...but like I said, it's sharper than you'd expect it to be). In all, for the size and weight, it's not too shabby. A viable backup item to one's survival kit.

        Well, I've gotten to learn a lot about knives since I wrote this review and I no longer would recommend this knife even for ultralight backpacking. The edge doesn't hold very long (just for sake of reference, if you'd make one or two tent stakes from a 1" stick, you'd lose the factory edge) nor is it very easy to sharpen surprisingly for a knife that's so soft. The LST is certainly an inexpensive option, but considering its lack of wear resistance and difficulty in resharpening, it'd be a waste. Of course there will be people who disagree, so I guess my target audience for this particular feedback will be the "knife people" that are used to the likes and quality of Bark River, Blind Horse, Fallkniven, etc.

        Don't Be Fooled By It's Size

          As a knife collector/enthusiast, I purchased this Ultralight L.S.T. a few years ago to carry in my backpacking survival kit along with another knife. This Gerber is ultra sharp & is extremely lightweight. Highly recommended especially when space & weight are important. Very durable for its small size.

          plan touse this knife on a boat in salt...

          plan touse this knife on a boat in salt water. Is the blade rust proof?
