The lock-back structure keeps the knife safely open while in use and keeps your attention where it should be, on the task at hand. The US1 is the new generation of your favorite pocket knife, sure to be your go-to blade for years to come.
First time in a while buying a new knife, good feel and to the grip and excellent weight for the size. The lock is solid so that's a definite plus. The edge on my blade seems a bit rough for a new blade but easy enough to fix with a good sharpening stone. Over all a nice blade for a quick Every Day Carry, and defiantly one I'll keep at the ready.
Glad to see Gerber getting back to making knives here in the USA. I recently bought this new and have been really happy with the fit/finish and sharpness of the blade. Jimping on the spine is a nice touch too. It's easy to carry and well built.
Owned dozens of pocket knives over the last 35 years or so. Many Gerbers, many not. Lock blades, non-lock. Too small, too large. Fine edge and serrated (don't like 'em at all) Only one previous knife was ever considered "perfect" (EZ Out Jr with fine blade). This is a great knife. Light weight. Lock-back. Great blade length. Made in the USA. And non-serrated!! Thank you.
Happened across this little beauty at walmart for $16. Wow, what a wonderful little knife for the money. Thank you Gerber for realizing that a high value knife can be made in AMERICA.
