I like the knife, however I knew the pocket clip would be a problem. I don't mind the wire but the shape of the clip is just asking to snag on something, day 2 and as expected my clip is already bent. For the price point and the hype from marketing for this I feel like a little more thought could of gone into this. Especially if this is supposed to be such a great edc. I'd give it more stars if it came with a couple spare clips to change out.

Is anyone else having an issue with the thumbstuds? I love the overall design and basic function of the knife so far but the thumbstuds are loose with no way to tighten and the pocket clip twists ever so slightry making it feel loose even when it's not. Just wondering if I'm the only one with these issues because other than that I love the knife.

I'm very excited about this upcoming release. I have wanted a US made assisted model from Gerber ever since they released the Instant a couple of years ago. I also love that they're making this with a wire pocket clip and they sized it down just enough to make it my ideal EDC size. I'll definitely be getting one as soon as I can.

Also, according to the GerberGear Youtube channel, this will be available in both 420HC and S30V. Meaning I can carry the premium S30V version and recommend/gift the less expensive 420HC version to friends who are fond of my new knife.

S30V - Yes
Ball bearings - Yes
Fine Edge only - Finally Gerber Finally
Do not like the slight recurve in the blade. Makes it difficult to sharpen for the average user. I like spydercos so I don't mind the wire clip. Reinforced nylon handle is fine depending on the price point you set, so Keep an eye on your competition. Locking mechanism doesn't matter too much to me, I understand it's a folding knife not a chainsaw or a prybar. Now where you lose me is the assisted opening. You put a ball bearing pivot in the knife you DO NOT NEED spring assist in this knife.You won't get to feel the benefit of the ball bearings if the blade shoots out cause of a spring and not your thumb. Take away the spring assist. And this will be a perfect edc blade. PERFECT!!!
Do this knife in a titanium frame lock and the knife community will lose their minds!
I really hope you read this Gerber.

I have been loyal to Gerber since my first one I purchased when I was in the Amy 20+ years ago. I wont purchase anything else, I am glad to see they have finally come out with a great assisted open knife that will fit in the pocket nicely. Just wish I could get my hands on one before November.

Just my opinion but not a fan of the wire pocket clip. Looks cheap. But someone will make an after market one I am sure.The blade looks great and glad it has a ball bearing system.
