Knife Review: Gordon 8-inch Hunting / Survival Knife from HarborFreight

When I saw a Harbor Freight Tools advertisement featuring a Survival Knife for only $8.99, I ran right out to get it. After all, you never know when your SUV might get shot down over Southeast Asia. Here's my review of this big knife!

My wife and I had a bona fide quest for a survival knife and our weekend began. When I got to the Harbor Freight Tools store, I hunted high and low for the $8.99 Hunting / Survival knife. Then, I found it and did a double take. An 8-inch blade is pretty huge. The Gordon 8-inch Hunting / Survival Knife would be very noticeable and quite anti-social hanging from my belt. If it were found during a routine traffic stop, an 8-inch survival knife would warrant a trip to jail for the owner just on general principle. But, $8.99 for a stainless steel survival knife is a very good deal. I wondered: What would I do with that knife? Would my wife think I was a psychopath? Where would I store it? Would I ever carry it outside of the house? I wavered and wimped out and bought a few other things. But, the survival knife made an impression.

My wife and I went on about our day. But, as we ran errands and shopped for household necessities, I was haunted by that infernal crazy knife. A little voice in my head kept saying, "$8.99. $8.99. It's only $8.99. Get it. Get it. Get it!" Plus, the survival knife included a survival kit. I wondered what the survival kit would have to offer. Since I live in Florida, I needed a survival kit. There are hurricanes, fist-sized grasshoppers, and alligator-eating, free-range, former pet pythons down in these parts. My wife said, "Get it!" So with my courage renewed, we returned to Harbor Freight Tools. I became the proud owner of an 8-inch stainless steel Gordon Hunting/Survival Knife.

What did I get for my money? I got plenty of survival knife. The Harbor Freight Gordon 8-inch Hunting / Survival Knife is 14-inches long overall. The blade of this Chinese-made knife is stainless steel and is reminscent of a classic Marine Corps K-Bar fighting knife. The lightweight aluminum handle has the solid machined feel reminscent of a Maglite. The Harbor Freight Hunting / Survival Knife is carried in a tacticool black nylon sheath with an inner plastic liner and hangs on your belt by a generously-sized belt loop. A short lanyard is looped through the top of the handle.

The handle of the Harbor Freight survival knife is hollow and the pommel can be unscrewed and flipped over to reveal a built in compass. Inside the handle, a small plastic bag contains five matches, a piece of flint paper, fishing line with a hook, a safety pin, a sewing kit, and buttons. It's nice to know that if you pop a button while fighting a grizzly bear with this knife, you'll be able to sew it back on or replace it in a jiffy. Fortunately, the handle has enough room to store a few additional small odds and ends. If you are serious about survival, you'll want to try to add extra fish hooks, a bobber, water purification tablets, a whistle, and other supplies. Such survival supplies would be a great idea for hunters and fishermen who do frequent the mountains, forests, and swamps of this great land.

While the extra buttons and sewing kit seem a tad ridiculous, the Harbor Freight Tools Gordon hunting / survival knife is no joke. It is a deadly serious and substantial knife with a sharp blade and a very solid feel. The knife seems well made, but has a few random tool and die marks. The only real worry that I have about this knife is that I noticed a small, faint, brown spot high on the blade near the handle. In the past, I have owned inexpensive Chinese stainless steel forks and knives and they picked up rust spots in the dishwasher. While I don't know what standards and steel were used in manufacturing the Harbor Freight Gordon Survival / Hunting Knife, I would recommend drying the knife thoroughly after washing, avoiding detergents with lemon, and storing this blade with a light coat of oil.

Overall, I think the Harbor Freight Tools Gordon Survival / Hunting Knife is a great bargain for routine use by outdoorsmen. While this knife might not be appropriate for a soldier in Southwest Asia, it should work quite well for the rest of us. At a $10 price point, the price for the Harbor Freight Gordon Survival / Hunting knife is definitely right.
