Built from US 420 steel, the Gerber Gear (@gerbergear) “Ghost Strike” is one of the latest stabby-slashy-pokey defensive implements in the Gerber lineup. Punch knife, punch dagger, OWB-mounted option or necker, it and its sheath were designed with a number of deployment options in mind.

It has a drop point blade with a black ceramic coating to resist the elements. The grip is a textured rubber, the better to maintain your grasp when sweaty or bloody, and it ships with a multi-use scabbard that can be worn as a necker, on a belt, attached to MOLLE or however you might prefer. As with other Gerber tools, the Ghoststrike is Made in the USA in Portland, Oregon.

As they describe it,


The Ghostrike Series Punch Knife is a skeletonized t-handle fixed blade neck knife designed for self-defense applications. The rubberized over-mold grip features a diamond texture, providing superior control in critical situations. Made with 420HC steel, the Ghostrike Punch Knife blade’s black ceramic coating offers superior corrosion resistance and minimizes reflective surfaces. Its 2 ½ inch fine edge drop point blade serves to slice and rip with precision.

The Ghostrike Punch Knife includes a glass filled nylon sheath that can be strung around the operator’s neck with 550 cord or worn on a standard 1.75” tactical belt making it ideal for self-defense applications. The sheath also features four grommet holes for operators who choose to tie it down to MOLLE gear with 550 cord.

All knives in the Discreet Series can be carried overtly or in a low profile manner. Know your local laws before you decide how you will wear this knife. The Ghostrike Series Punch Knife is proudly made in Portland, OR.
