Part of our Gerber End of Season Clearance
If youâ€™re going to pack an item into the backcountry, it becomes even more valuable when it serves multiple purposes. By combining Gerberâ€™s decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Gryllsâ€™s survival knowledge, the Bear Grylls Paracord Fixed Blade is that item. You get the functionality of a field-proven, full tang fixed blade knife plus the added versatility of nearly 4 feet of paracord. And it weighs in under 6 ounces, thatâ€™s less than most smartphonesâ€”not bad for a 7.75-inch long knife.
The minimalist, balanced feel of the Paracord Fixed Blade is well-suited to extended backcountry travel where every ounce counts. The 4-inch handle performs equally well with or without the paracord, and it offers a full grip for all hand sizes and plenty of power for driving the blade to shape wood or work on small game. A deep choil that sits between your hand and the blade allows you to safely apply added pressure when driving the blade, and a textured thumb rest on the spine adds control. The 45 inches of paracord on the handle could fashion an emergency splint or repair a blown snowshoe binding. Until then, the cord serves as a lightweight grip on an incredibly capable knife. You can even customize the wrap to suit your grip preference.
The lightweight, slim design of the sheath is in keeping with the thin profile and minimalist style of the knife, a real plus when youâ€™re traveling light and donâ€™t want bulky items hanging from your belt or pack. You can customize the sheath to meet your access preference, too: tip up, tip down or to the side. It attaches easily to a pack, or remove the belt clip for the ultimate in minimalist packing.

Shipping Policy as of November 2019
A new procedure has been introduced by postal/courier services to check the age of any deliveries containing a knife or bladed item. This means that you will be asked for proof of age upon delivery if you look younger than 25. You will be asked to provide proof of age and if you cannot, or you are not in to sign for the delivery, it will have to be collected at your local postal depot. Unfortunately, this age verification service does affect and increase the postage costs. You can check the shipping cost once it's in your basket using the "Estimate Shipping" feature on the right-hand side, below the Shopping Cart.
International Orders Restricted
We are unable to ship knives or items with a blade Internationally. If you place an order from outside of the UK, we will contact you, but it result in refunding your payment for any knife purchased back to you and cancelling the item from your order.
