    Nice little EDC

    Posted by Zach C on Dec 21st 2020

    I like this new Gerber model quite a bit. It's small and lightweight, thanks to aluminum scales and a liner on only one side (where the lock is). The keen blade tip is good for piercing, and the edge seemed to work well cutting up a big cardboard box. The detent and lock can be a bit sticky, but overall the action is snappy. One of the biggest knocks I found is the finishing of the liner. The edges are rough, which means the black coating is not applied well and the jimping on the liner lock seems just a touch prickly. For a USA-made knife around $100, fit and finish should be better. Cutlery Shoppe had a great price and quick service though. And the candy is always a nice touch :)
