I'm sure some get good results from Gerber but for me, I've never had anything from them that I'd stake my life on. I use my knives - a lot. The best results I've had have been with Spyderco and Benchmade - but that's just me.

The last Gerber product I got (my wife bought for me) is the camp axe. I wanted an Eastwing but hey, she was nice enough to surprise me with a camp axe so who am I to complain. Well - first weekend out camping, first piece of oak to split for the fire - the blade chipped.

If you've had good luck with Gerber then go for it - for me I won't be buying any more of their products.

I own a LMF-II, a 1990's multi-tool, and a Gerber sport ax that I think are good quality. I also a have a Suspension multi-tool that is junk. In regards to the suspension I think the $10 Walmart tool would be of equal quality. The Gerber flashlights are also garbage. I had several of the keychain size lights (can't remember the name) that quit working soon after purchase. I have 2 of the Infinity Task lights. One is older and is great the other is newer and junk. The Gerber customer service is as bad as their quality control.

I have a gerber folder that I got in 1982. I took it to the field a couple times but found that I never used it. Works fine though.

I also got one of those Gerber multi tools. One of the rivets popped out but it still works well. At some point (probably soon) it will fail. I have mechanically able buddy that knows something about knives. He might be able to fix it.
