Gerber Optimizes the StrongArm for the Campground

Gerber just announced an update to their staple fixed blade knife: The StrongArm Camp is the bushcraft edition: It’s smaller and geared more toward processing wood, carving tools.

The quick specs:

Overall Length:8.98″
Blade Length:4.1″
Blade Steel:420HC
Handle Material:GFN w/ rubber overmold
Sheath:Plastic w/ nylon back
Made in:Portland, OR

They’ve kept the overall look and materials of the design, so that rubbery grip is still there. But they’ve adjusted some of the lines to pull back from the tactical-centric theme of the original:

  • Removed the handguards to allow for a more comfortable grip choking up on the blade,
  • Added a sharpening choil,
  • Oriented the handle more forward to add better grip and leverage.

The sheath design is the same: ambidextrous, MOLLE compatible, with a modular system that can be adjusted for horizontal, vertical, and drop-leg carry.

The price is also staying the same, so the StrongArm Camp is staying neatly under the $100 mark.

It’s available now, with a grey handle and a stonewash finish blade.
