In the interest of trying to evaluate the grip security under different conditions I wore the knife while doing yard work and, while nicely sweaty, used the knife to trim tree branches and hack down some vines growing nearby. Sweat didn't impact my grip security as near as I could tell. Wanting to test out the handle and grips as thoroughly as possible, I did pour a coating of 10-W30 motor oil on them. Even with that coating them the grip was pretty secure. I had to hold onto it tighter, but I still experienced no slippage in my hand while repeating my earlier cutting tests.
The Gerber site lists this knife at $153.99. A Google search found them for as low as $93.81. That's a heck of a good price, so do your search before ordering the first one you find. For more information about this knife, visit Gerber online.
