Tanto Knife and Blade Selection

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 ~

Looks good, we'll balanced, good engineering, good operation

Good knife, great for concealment.

I'd like to give this knife a higher rating but I can't. I was looking for a sturdy knife that would last quite a while under average pressure. Unfortunately after only a week or so, the knife began to fall apart, losing two pieces that hold it together. I usually carry the knife around with me but because it's breaking and I don't want to cut myself with it, I've left it at home to use there. The knife still works but I'm sure after some more use, it will break entirely.

Fantastic folding utility knife. I'm a chef and I probably use this tool more than any other. It's tough, versatile and it keeps a decent edge. Highly recommended for everyday use.

These guys are awesome. First knife I received, had a little wiggle in the blade. They sent me a replacement knife at no charge. Excellent customer service. Will definitely use them in the future.
