Civilware has another hit on their hands with the $70 gripper knife. Made from 1095 carbon steel the super basic 4.25 in. knife with its trim 1.5 in. blade and kydex sheath is small enough to stick with you but mean enough to do a lot of jobs. It stays tight in the sheath and has cut lines in the handle which is really just the full tang. No screws, plastic or other parts to break, chip, or fall apart. Strictly sharp metal and easy grippin’ on this blade.
