This take on the everyday carry pocket knife has serious bite. American made, dependable, and highly practical, a proven design is enhanced with a modern sheepsfoot blade w/ flat top serrations, textured Sharkskin Grip™, and a scratch-resistant pocket clip.
An update to the classic everyday carry pocket knife: the SharkBelly. This smartly designed knife offers lightweight utility, proudly made in the USA. The SharkSkin Grip™ succeeds in function and aesthetics with unidirectional scales that provide additional traction when in hand. The 420HC sheepsfoot blade is easily deployed with a sizable thumb hole, revealing flat top serrations that are easy to sharpen on a flat stone and practical for daily use.
My first knife as a child was a gerber 400 lockback. That knife was made in USA and was quality compared to most knives that time. Gerber was a name for quality. In recent years through competition and overseas manufacturing, Quality control has been lacking, fancy designs and shoddy materials have given Gerber a bad name. This knife and a couple others that are made stateside are getting that great reputation back. This knife is solid, easy to open, slim in the pocket . Not to mention very light weight at 2 ounces. This knife would be great for backpacking or throwing in a cycling jersey for a long ride. It arrived shaving sharp and ready to go. I think I will buy a couple of these and may give this to my son as his first lockback.
Love the price for a USA-made knife. Excellent ergonomics and grip. The flat top serrations are an awesome bonus for me. I also like the half stop and the utilitarian blade shape; super nice qualities for such an inexpensive knife.
I only have one complaint: I don't like the way the end of the pocket clip flares out as it loves to get hooked on seatbelts, bags, furniture edges, etc.. A quick bend with my multitool pliers solved this problem in just a few seconds. Aside from that this is an awesome knife.
This has become my go-to work knife. Keep this up Gerber! We want more high quality blades like this!
