Great all-around knife
I own both the serrated and fine blade versions of this knife and like all of the Gerber knives I've owned, these have proven their worth. I've had them for about 3 years now. (3/2011)
The handle is surprisingly comfortable during prolonged or hard use and I haven't gotten any blisters, bruises, or any other kind of real discomfort from it. There is also a small notch just above the guard where you can lash it to a stick (or something else) if you needed or wanted to.
The blade has put up with all of the abuse I've put it through and maintained a very sharp edge. I bring this knife with me mountaineering, hiking, and hunting. I've hammered on the back of it with stones to cut through trees, branches, and firewood with great efficacy and without damage to the knife. Even the finish still looks good (a few scratches and some tree sap, but that only adds character.)
Overall, the knife feels good in the hand, stays sharp under hard use, and the sheath is pretty nice too. For the ultralight backpacker, this may not be your choice, but I concede a few ounces of my pack weight for a good knife that I know I can depend on if I need to.
