An excellent water sports knife, the Gerber River Shorty excels in responding to unique requirements of rafting, paddling and diving. With its sturdy stainless steel blade, extremely light glass-filled nylon handle, and deliberately stunted tip, the river shorty can be carried into a myriad of high difficulty water-related situations in its sheath designed expressly for mounting on a PFD.

Well-polished in order to limit corrosion, the River Shorty does the job in watery elements without making waves. The 3-inch blade offers major versatility, with a small partial serration on the lower edge, and a longer, beefier serration on the upper edge. Remove the lightweight knife from its sheath clipped to a PFD to quickly hack at reeds, cut a tie-off rope or sever the cord. Use the River Shorty back at camp to slice into a watermelon after lunch.
