GB5803: Guardian Back Up - Double Edge, Plain Edge
Remember the very first time you saw an image of the Stealth Bomber? With its aggressive lines and matte black paint job? Well the Guardian Back-Up probably belongs on board that bird. Because the overall look and attitude is much the same. This is a professional fixed blade knife that takes a mighty serious cut at self defense. It features blackened and therefore non-reflective stainless steel in a 3/4 tang blade. It's lightweight. It's compact. It's effortless to carry, and agile to use. Importantly, the Santoprene-covered nylon handle is very much at home in the hand of those who take on life's nastier tasks. Don't overlook the patented sheath. It lets you adjust the withdraw tension to suit your individual style. Clip it to your boot or belt or your strap, and you'll never be without a reliable back-up.

Gerber Guardian Back Up Knife
This is an ideal conceallable knife for self-defense. I purchased two of these and am extremely satisfied. They are worn inside the pants, one on each side.. The adjustable sheath is fantastic for getting the right amount of tension for release and is comfortable in any position.

Great, safe knife.
I use the boot knife at work because pocket knifes were getting damaged. After a month on the job this knife is still going strong. easy to sharpen and clean.

Gerber Back-Up
Had a original Gerber Guardian Back-Up and loved it, it had a leather sheath and blade was not finished in black but a nice polished stainless steel finish. Don't understand why companies try to fix something that isn't broke, sheath on new back-up sucks and while I can live with the blade being black would prefer my original.
