    A short knife for long rivers.

    The Gerber River Shorty knife is an ideal tool for rafting, kayaking, and diving. This knife features a blunt tip, full serration drop point fixed blade with molded handle for strength and reliability. Blade is of medium-carbon stainless steel, high polished to reduce corrosion. The hard plastic handle is molded over the blade tang, virtually making it a one-piece knife. There are several ridges formed in the handle so the user can easily and quickly locate the edge of the blade. The holes in the handle are designed primarily to reduce weight and can be used for security (tie down). The River Shorty's hard plastic sheath allows the knife to be inserted in 2 positions. 3 audible clicks let you know the knife is secure. The sheath can be attached to a belt, boot, or PFD using the pocket clip. It can also be permanently attached using the 2 plastic rivets.

    Too symmetric

      I used this knife for many years of kayaking. The sheath is perfect - secure but easy to extract the knife. The blade stays sharp since it’s serrated and cuts rope well and it never showed a spec of rust. My only complaint is that the handle is too symmetric and it is hard to tell which side had the cutting edge when I grabbed it. For a safety knife, this could be a big deal, especially if you’re caught underwater. That kind of dire situation never appeared, but I might look at other knives if I was buying it again.
