Gerber Bear Grylls Card Tool

A pocket-size survival device

With Gerber’s Bear Grylls Card Tool in your pocket, you never have to worry about being unprepared again. 

The tool—which is about the size of a credit card—features all the emergency survival basics former special forces officer Grylls demands in the backcountry. The steel-backed card houses a 1.5-inch fixed-blade knife, while a Phillips screwdriver lets you make quick gear repairs in the field.

The 2.7-ounce tool also has a compact ferrocerium rod to help start a fire if you run out of matches. Top it off with a water-resistant LED light and rulers (with both metric system and standard units), and you have a pretty handy little gadget.

Oh, yeah, and there’s a bottle opener—likely the tool that will get the most use. Available now.
