Technical and tactical, the medium sized Answer is a folder with quick opening F.A.S.T. technology. Aluminum handles keep it lightweight and the textured inlays give it extra grip. Two blade options for tactical choices: Tanto shape for thrusting and drop point for general use.
Why has this knife been discontinued? I have two of them and wanted to get one for my 12 year old grandson.
I bought one a few years back and have used it regularly. I did not encounter a single problem until the other day I opened it and the spring snapped, rendering it pretty much useless since the blade just flops back and forth freely when its no closed. On the bright side, Gerber said they would replace it when I send it in.
Literally just bought this knife and so far I love it. It has a great grip and the blade is awsome. I have always had gerber as my first selection and by far I like this the most as my every day carry.
Bought this knie with the new venture in a sporting good store brand new... came with a chipped blade...other than that its a awesome knife...hope i Gerber can swap or put a new blade on my knife
I have had several Gerber over the years and to be honest I have not liked very many of them until I purchased the "Answer". I mean no disrespect to Gerber and a "Made in the USA" knife which is hard to find these days. However this knife has changed my thoughts on Gerber knives. The "Answer" carries good, sharpens easy, holds it's edge & just all around good, good knife. I would not hesitate to buy another one. Thank you Gerber!
Great everyday knife that I have been carrying for the last year. Straight blade makes easy for sharpening. Spring assist works great for one hand openings. Big enough to do the job buts all enough to keep in your pocket without concern. The clip does occasionally become snagged on objects. When you put the knife in your pocket, it sometimes unlocks the lock system. I have own 30 plus knives of variety of brands and this is my first choice everyday and by far my favorite. Great buy!
