Great knife. The engraving was faint and hard to read, not like on previous knives we've bought.

I picked this out at the SMKW in Sevierville,Tennessee for my Sweetheart to give me. I was just looking for a knife with single sided handle slim enough to carry every day to the office. They only had the serrated version, which I prefer, as it is more useful. And I prefer a tanto blade. I didn't know I was getting such a famous knife by such a respected designer. I still have it and now that I am retired, I only need to carry it when I don't want a lot of bulk in my front pocket. It could have been a half inch longer and still be OK. But I wouldn't take it anywhere that it might be confiscated.

nice knife for the office! non knife people do not freak out when i use it to open a box or a letter!

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.
