This might be the best all around camp/woods blade I've owned.
No I won't dress-out a Moose with it, but ya know what, I bet I could. (I've never hunted Mooses)
This steel is hard. Hard and soft Arkansas and Washita's
took me forever to get this honed from previous owner grinder/butcher.
Anyway here she is, cute and deadly. The Pixie.

solotesticle58, There's steak knives, and it may look that way.
The difference is the early Gerber steel.
Call it a "trout and bird". Still a great knife.

I take your word and am sure its a valuable and quality knife. I was just making a observation that it looked like a steak knife.

If it's the one I'm thinking of ~ it's actually a caping knife....for use around the eyes and nostrils...and other fine work. How long is the blade itself?

Could be Giz. 3 1/4" blade.

Gerber's may not be expensive or flashy but every one I have had has been a decent knife for a good price.

Very true. The only Gerber I have ever had issue with was their multi-tool. It was the original one before all the upgrades. It would pinch you if you were not very careful, and all the tools and blades were on a sliplock, so they were never very sturdy. It was issued to me while I was still in the Army, and it has the NSN stamped on it, so I kept it for my collection. The later ones seem to have better locking devices for the tools and blades.

All the other Gerbers I have, have been very functional knives, and really take a beating!

Yep, that's the one....fine caping knife ;)
Least that's what I've seen them used for...
Also, makes a fine Bird or Trout knife...so you're right. Pretty handy little knife for being out and about.

Great knife Rimfire!! I've got a Pixie that I've had for about 40 years now. When the Gerbers came out, Buck and Case were the knives of choice. I sold a bunch of knives at the PX during that time and Buck's would clear out first because of the heft of the knife. The Gerbers felt flimsy by weight but those that bought them loved them. The Pixie is hard to find these days.

I had one of those with a black handle. It was one of my favorite,and most often used,knives. I left it aboard a 48' Hatteras we had chartered for a fishing trip. When I called the captain to inquire about it,he said "Nope,one of the deckhands must have taken it". I STILL miss it,and that was 20 years ago! nhvaoavo
