Air Ranger - Serrated
There's something about the way the Air Ranger feels in your hand that just makes you feel like you're ready for anything. And it has mostly to do with the checkering on the machined aluminum grip; precision texturing that can only be accomplished on sophisticated CNC machining equipment.
The tactile sensation is very high when gripped, which translates into an unusual degree of dexterity, which translates into confidence.
William Harsey, Jr. is the heralded knifemaker who conceived this popular clip folder. To his credit, he found the pivotal balance between a knife that's smooth to deploy and use, and a knife that's as tough as they come. The hearty thumbstud facilitates easy one-handed opening. The stainless steel pocket clip is strong and reliable.

I have the plain edge and have had it for many, many years. Excellent knife, easy to grab from the pocket and open one handed with out looking at it. The clip needed retightening once, but other wise it has been excellent. it has been used and abused and still holds a place clipped to the inside of my pants pocket. Bring back the plain edge knife as my fellow scouters are all envious of my excellent knife
I got my first Air Ranger over 12 years ago. Absolutely loved it. I used it while camping, hiking, biking, and for my EDC. Unfortunately a couple years back I lost track of it and have been looking for it in stores everywhere. I guess it never occurred to me to just look on this website! I'll be ordering another shortly. I highly recommend this knife.
I'm with Joshua on this one. Haven't had it for 13 years, probably 8 to 10. And for Nick - If they don't pull this plug - The best sharpener I've ever owned is Wicked Edge. Profile the edge and work from 100 to 10000 grit diamond stone and finish with 5 micron diamond strops. Best edge I've ever had.
I have had this knife for 4 years now, and the reason i'm giving it a 3 is because when i got the knife, the blade was not really sharp, so i sharpened it, and sharpened it, and sharpened it and it never got sharp, so i took it to my buddy and he made it like a razor and it gets really dull fast as well. Maybe i got a faulty knife but other than that, this knife is great. I cut open hundreds of boxes a day and this is amazing when its sharp. the grip is amazing, but i would like to have a tanto assisted open of it!
my knife is the first serrated blade i hve owned,love it.i have numerous knives,but none i like as well as this one.great knife.should make an air ranger with hole in blade to open with.
I have had this knife for 13 years its been in my right pocket every day sense the day i bought it. I worked for the forest service as a back country ranger repairing trails and removing downed trees from trails. I put this knife through hell and as long as you take care to clean and oil it up from time to time it takes a licking and keeps right on ticking.
I love this knife. Bought my first one when I was in the scouts 7 years ago but it was stolen. I now keep this with in arms reach on my gear on the fireline or canoeing in the back country of Alaska.
Surface is perfect for strike anywhere matches. The only downside is using this knife in the cold as the weather gets pretty cold in the far north
I really like this knife and use it every day, but sadly, I will only use the fine edge version. I wish Gerber would release the fine edge version, plus the Larger version as well.
I bought this off a Smoky Mountain catalog because of the price and reviews. Great little pocket knife and has good edge retention. No idea what kind of steel or where its made/assembled.
I definitely love my plain edge one had it for years lost the first one in the ocean then got another as a gift :) It's a hardcore knife by any means
This is the best and most robust knife I have ever had. I am tough on gear and this knife just performs very well. I love this knife. PLEASE bring this knife back in a plain edge.
