The rapid opening new Slate brings F.A.S.T. technology and extra implements to a smart little package. This over-achiever will impress with its looks, screw drivers, and bottle opener.
Bought the serrated one, the spring snapped after a month use. The knife is useless now as it does not close and open properly.
Though it is (or was anyway) one of the sharpest knives in my collection.
The blade worked itself loose, Tightening it only worked for short time. There are design issues with the blade and lock. However I see that it has a lifetime warranty.
I used this knife as a daily carry for about two months. Within that time the blade became loose. I tightened it back up and after another couple days it became loose again. I have never been more disappointed in a knife. I don't think I will be putting my money back into another Gerber knife.
