Gerber Vital Knife Lands Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award

The replaceable blade market has boomed over the last few years, say the editors of Outdoor Life Magazine in their most recent issue.  And Gerber is no stranger to the technology of course having skin in this game for the better part of a decade.

So it came as no surprise, but much delight, when we opened the pages of OL to reveal a Field Test gear spotlight featuring a number of replaceable-blade knives, including the new Gerber Vital folder which took home a coveted 'Editor's Choice' award.

Credited for its comfortable, tacky rubber handle, sturdy pocket clip and easy push-button blade release, the editors call the Vital "a near perfect caping and skinning knife". It scored perfect "10" marks in ergonomics, blade replacement and skinning/caping as well as near perfect marks in safety and value on the way to it's 'Editor's Choice' nod.

Hats off to the entire team on this incredible accomplishment! #JoinTheHunt
