The product of collaboration between Gerber and survival expert Bear Grylls, the Compact Scout Knife is a smaller version of the original Scout knife, featuring a thin, folding design for easy portability and storage–just tuck it in a pocket and you’re ready to go. Its half-serrated, high-carbon, drop point stainless steel blade is ideal for edge retention and cutting rope. A locking blade feature and oversized finger notch in the grip provide additional safety.
The blade locks in place while it’s open, and the oversized finger notch in the handle minimizes slipping. View larger.

Bear Grylls and Gerber Team Up
The Compact Scout Knife is part of the Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Series of gear. This collaboration brings together Gerber’s 70+ years of knife and gear expertise with Bear Grylls’ extensive outdoor survival and adventure experience to create a one-of-a-kind line of knives, tools, and gear.
From spending time in the British SAS, to scaling Mount Everest, Bear knows what it takes to be a survivor in extreme situations and multiple environments. Now he brings that knowledge to the creation of a range of items that help you make the most of your outdoor adventures.
Compact, Lightweight Design for Easy Carrying
Like the original Scout knife, the Compact Scout has a strong stainless steel blade, but is lighter and smaller. It measures 5-4/5 inches overall, with a closed length of 3-3/10 inches and a 2-1/2-inch blade. At 1-2/5 ounces, it’s light enough to store in your pocket.
