So... the Gerber strong arm is actually the knife I will always own. Maybe it's not the preferred knife but it will be in my collection. However it's a hard to destroy budget knife. Plus its easy to find at the store. You can even use a pocket sharpener if you never used a stone or strop. Just make sure its the official one. I guess the edge retention could be better but that's it. Joe x stressed tested it on YouTube twice and it did pretty well. I guess that's it for now. Thanks for reading.
