He is arguably the most successful and accomplished outdoor survivalist in the world. He is the star of the hit TV series 'Man vs Wild' and is a spokesman for numerous companies.
He has accomplished countless feats in his lifetime, one of which includes being the youngest Briton to ever climb Mount Everest at age 23.
Who is Gerber?
Gerber is a company who specializes in knife and blade manufacturing. They are known for having a line of 'Legendary Blades.' They are easily among the most successfull and high quality knife companies in the world.
Together They are...?
The producers of a seriously high quality and high functionality line of outdoor survival products. Their new gear includes a few bladed tools, multi-function tools, survival kits, and a fire starting tool. Each one possibly having the best quality you can get. This line is expensive, but that is because they don't cheap out on materials and design.
What are these products and why are they so good?
Ultimate Knife - The qualities that immediately stand out on this knife are the additional tools that come with it. It is more of a kit than it is just a knife. However the knife itself is probably worth the value of the whole kit just by itself. The handle and blade have tremendous durability and the handle has "super grippyness" as Bear himself put it. Click here for more details on the Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife.
Parang - The parang is much like a curved machete. The design has been used for centuries for clearing brush and other chopping and cutting purposes. But this parang has been taken to a new level with the quality materials and perfect dimensions for the most effective use ever. Click here for more details on the Bear Grylls Parang.

Good article. Lot of good information here. However, I'm not sure he is the most accomplished survival expert in the world. But, thats why you said arguably. His products though, as you said are fantastic. Very high in quality (lets face it, its made by Gerber). I personally bought the ultimate knife and found it to be just an all around awesome tool regardless of whether or not I'm in a survival situtation. Anyone have any opinions on the Parang? That's next on my list of things to get. p.s. Lo

Dean, that sucks! You should go get his parang and...: o......nvm just kidding. lol i think im just going to pick it up regardless. It looks awesome and if its made of the same quality as every single other product made by gerber I'll be fine. Plus this site is running free shipping which is crazy. I need to buy it before they go out of business! lol And as far as survival experts. I am a fan of Les Stroud. Very accompished individual and he was even an award winning musician! Check em out
