Good quality is often hard to find. Good quality, at a good price, is often even harder to find. Fortunately, for guys and gals like me, always on the lookout for quality gear, there are options out there. Added bonus? When you can find solid, rugged, and affordable American gear. Gerber is one of those brands, I think. And with their new Gerber Sedulo Every Day Carry knife, the options just got a lot better.
Good gear doesn’t have to be American, of course. There is a lot of amazing gear out there from all over the world. But having options from all around the world isn’t always better. Too much stuff out there, especially from certain places, is just not good, and not worth the money — or the savings.
For many people, Gerber is a familiar brand. Gerber was founded in 1939, and is based in Portland, Oregon. They offer many products popular with hunters and the military, and have a solid enough reputation to accompany that legacy. However, Gerber has had some struggles over the years, both in the quality and reception of some of its products. Especially, with die-hard knife people.
Bear Grylls is a certified stud, and way cooler than most of us will ever be. But his line of Gerber products, packaged and sold at Wal-Mart, was a marketing misstep. It cheapened the brand and product line, and even worse, the public perception.
Given the nature of the typical Gerber customer, their products are a perfect fit for our typical SOFREP reader. With that in mind, when Gerber sent me their new Gerber Sedulo EDC knife to review, it piqued my curiosity.
Gerber’s domestically produced knives are very good. Their imports are a mixed bag. The Sedulo is the former, and very well regarded.View Linked Article
