Unforeseen trouble is part of the job description for law enforcement professionals, so Gerber focused its machining expertise on creating a small but effective self-defense tool: the Uppercut Fixed Blade Knife. There are no moving parts or fancy features; it’s self-defense in its purest form. This small, discreet blade features a punch-style T-handle and a double-edged dagger blade. It’s small enough to clip discreetly inside a boot and serious enough to handle critical situations.
At times when small and subtle are your ticket to survival, the palm-size Uppercut is on your side. It deploys from its sheath ready to defend or slice through what’s in its path. The ergonomic T-handle sits securely in your palm, offering a secure grip for bare and gloved hands. The double-sided 2-inch blade is all business when it comes to your personal safety, and the high-carbon steel promotes a durable edge while permitting easy sharpening.
CLEAN AND SIMPLE
Clean and simple at its core, the Uppercut is ready for instant action when trouble presents itself. The matte black finish adds corrosion resistance and maintains a stealth profile.
Whether you prefer the discreet boot cuff mount or the convenient duty belt clip, the polymer sheath can be oriented up or down, while the belt clip can be removed for easy shoulder strap mounting. Minimalism has never packed such a serious punch as this.
Like this little knife. Will make a good boot knife when i get a kydex sheath. At first was hard to get out of sheath..now it just falls out easy.
It's great for ladies. The shape makes it easy to put it between your boobs and if someone comes at you, bam, uppercut. You can't see it, so its a hidden, quick access self defense tool. You don't have to dig through a purse, or use up one of your pockets either.
The knife is much too loose in the sheath. It practically falls out...needs a way to tighten the pressure or make the sheath more secure. Great knife but it's no good if it falls out and you lose it or have to constantly keep pushing it back into the sheath and give away the fact you are carrying it.
Knife is real good, thin & light wieght, sharp! Sheath not so good, knife clips in so tight it is hard to get out of sheath.
I really like this idea. @ Leo: I think the sheath is supposed to stay securely in the sheath. I think it should slide out easily so that it isn't hard to pull out when you need it. I've never actually used the knife since it isn't available for commercial sale; these are just my first impressions upon looking at the knife.
Knife is great, comes with a plastic sheath and belt clip which are not so great. The belt clip piece slides off too easy and the sheath doesnt secure the knife well. I tried to use it on my duty belt but it doesnt stay secure.
