SURVIVAL RATING - 9
The Gerber Silver Trident was developed by a founding member of SEAL TEAM 2. the Gerber Silver Trident has become one of the top choices for America's Special Ops personnel.
The Silver Trident features the most technically advanced handle ever developed for a combat Knife. The Silver Trident is resistant to heat, UV light and chemicals, and the handle is a co-mold of two versions of a material called Hytrel. Inside, there's a rock hard version for strength, while outside there's a soft textured version for extreme grip control. The Silver Trident has a stainless steel butt cap that can also be used as a hammer. What really makes the Silver Trident special though, is the double edged clip point blade made from 154C stainless steel and heat treated to achieve a hardness rating of HRC 59-61. Which means the Silver Trident has excellent edge retention, strength and flexibility. The non-reflective black blade also limits glare and corrosion. The Gerber Silver Trident has received a lot of attention and accolades over the years. Are those accolades warranted? In a word ... yes.
For those of you who want one of the Best Survival Knives made, the Gerber Silver Trident is definitely one of the best Fixed Blade Survival Knives in the world.
