Gerber partnered with F.A.S.T. developer Butch Vallotton to bring this namesake design to the F.A.S.T. Series. The Vallotton combines an extremely light weight, gun-checkered handle and the crisp simplicity of the F.A.S.T. Assisted Opening technology with safety and lock release, all in a slim profile that clips securely in the pocket.
This knife was given to me as a gift. This is the BEST knife i have ever owned. I work in an office environment but have always carried a pocket knife. This knife is easy to clip on your pocket, the F.A.S.T systems is amazing, easy to sharpen, and its good for everyday use. I'm sad to see this on the discontinued list. :(
I have owned this knife for about two years. First one, I broke the tip off about 8 months after getting it. Sent it to Gerber and they sent me a brand new one. I have had this one since then and it has been through hell. I have it on me 24/7. Great Knife.
