Like many fixed blades from the venerable company, the Gerber Convoy is spec’d for the great outdoors. Its 3.9-inch blade length makes it a great choice for day hikes, or a companion knife on longer trips, possibly even a main blade if you’re a minimalist. The drop point blade shape needs no elaboration: it’s as universal and intuitive as they come, with a serviceable tip and long run of belly that makes a wide variety of cutting chores very easy.
I already like the Gerber Downwind Hunter in this niche. My son loves that knife, and it is his camp knife of choice. I have just given it to him to take responsibility and ownership.
