Fantastic! Could be the perfect knife.
I have owned my 06 Fast Folder Tanto for a couple of months. I have a very nice collection of tanto Folders, but the Gerber is my favorite and also my daily carry > It is extremely sharp as I used my Japanese stones on it a bit. It is tough, and quick and very well made ~
one of the best made knives of this type I have ever owned.
As a folding knife goes, reliability is a main feature in a folding knife. You need to rely on the fact the knife will close ONLY when you want it to. The Ripstop II is very lightweight, easy to clean(and easy to tell when dirty) and has a slightly larger blade & serrations then the Ripstop I. But they both share the fact that in gripping the knife, it's possible to accidentally close it while using it. In handing the knife to a friend, I always make sure to show them the framelock & how easy it is to disengage. Since then, the knives(I bought 10 of them as gifts) have been relegated to permanent duty in my first-aid kits/BOBs so that I'm the only one who'll use them. Other then that, they're great in the fact they need little maintenance & keep a reasonable edge.
An Excellent survival knife
I really liked this knife at first, it was super sharp, lightweight, and fast opening with a smart release. Then the rubber started to come off the sides, interfering with the action...I tried trimming it, I refastened it using super glue, but it kept getting loose. I finally put this one away and bought the Columbia River (CRKT) M4-02...which is far superior...it pays to spend more.
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.
