The Gerber Descent has become one of my favorite travel and hiking knives, it’s small, lightweight and gets the job done. Two of my favorite features include the blade, which is pretty close to a Spay-Point Blade and the carabiner clip. The blade is a good short blade length, thick, sharp, very utilitarian and the serrations work well.
The clip makes it easy to attach to almost any piece of gear and I often find myself clipping it in, forgetting about it, then when I need it it’s always at the ready. I am very impressed with the design of this knife as well, it has an open frame design with a frame lock and it is just nice to look at and easy to use. This knife has been on countless trips with me now and it’s still running strong.
