Excellent knife for the low end price, proud to have in my collection.
Great tool, very sturdy.
A little hard to open with one hand, great when it is open. Fits the hand nicely very comfortable to use and unlike many others I have used the blade stays in place through out the most demanding tasks. As a carpenter I use mine 30 to 40 times a day for everything from cutting boxes open to cutting drywall, will never be without one again!
I have carried one of these on the job for over 20 years! What a great tool! I can't imagine not having it.
It is a nice knife.
I've never had a pocket knife before this but it stays sharp I've carved into bone and cut bone off and after a year it's still just as sharp
I purchased this knife as a replacement for a traditional Buck pocket knife. This knife is light and nicely finished. The soft rubber grips are nice and the knife arrived with a sharp blade that locks firmly in place when opened. However, I purchased the knife because of the spring assisted opening, and the knife is difficult to open. I have never been able to open it with one hand. In fact, I sent the knife back thinking it was defective, but when the replacement arrived it had the same problem. It seems to me like the thumb knob is located too close to the blade or the mechanism is just too tight. Either way it is difficult to open. A traditional grove in the blade would help with opening as well. Also, the clip on the knife is well made, but it does not seem to be removable. I would like to remove the clip and carry the knife in my pocket. Overall the knife is a good knife, but it could be improved.
In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary BladesÂ®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New YorkÂs famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver TridentÂ, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the RecoilÂ Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
