Air Ranger - Serrated
Designed by the acclaimed knife maker, William Harsey, Jr., the Air Ranger folding knife assists in determining solutions for everyday problems. With its elegant partially serrated drop point 3.26-inch blade, this folder packs a serious punch when tasked for assistance. The Air Ranger folding knife is a great, logical daily carry for addressing troublesome encounters with efficiency.
CROSSHATCH TEXTURED PERFORMANCE
Establishing the Air Ranger as distinct from similar folders is its innovative handle. A sophisticated crosshatch pattern etched along the machined aluminum surface offers the holder steady purchase during deployment of the blade. The one-handed open releases with a thumb using the dual thumb studs positioned near the hilt. Make dexterous use of the knife in all conditions, no matter if the hand holding it is covered in water, sweat, or mud, thanks to the Air Ranger’s ingeniously designed deeply grooved grip.
GET THE JOB DONE
Whether implementing its fine edge to make clean, accurate cuts or the serrated portion to saw through rope, twine, wood, or aluminum, the Air Ranger’s high carbon stainless steel blade makes short work of daily tasks. Slice open tape on the latest Internet delivery, cut cardboard to help with a child’s school project, or cut the tow rope when out boating using the blade of this light but rugged knife. The Air Ranger’s well-adhered stainless steel pocket clip reliably keeps it tethered to a pocket or belt loop. The lanyard hole provides optional tie-down and additional security for the sturdy knife.

I got one of these 10 years ago and have beat the begeezus out of it since then. Never fails me. It's been so goo to me I almost feel guilty looking at new knives, haha
BEST GERBER EVER OWNED. I trade a spring assist to my friend for this knife he didn't like the grip but I love it its plain and simple yet gets the job done sleek knife fits in pockets well and I love the lanyard hole. I had the air ranger with the plastic handle until I sadly lost it to airport security in Israel. Great knife worth the money in full.
The Gerber Air Ranger is one of my favorite EDC knives, hands down. It's quality built, light, and has a sleek and unique look. It sits deep in the pocket with the clip, but it would be nice to have the option to carry tip up. Overall it is a fantastic blade.
I mainly bought this knife because Cabella's had it on sale for $17.00 and that's about what I'd expect to pay for this knife. After 1 day the finish is coming off the handles and the pocket clip would be more useful if it was on the opposite end and the other side. As it is you've got to turn the knife over and around to open it after removing it. I bought a Schrade knife for $15.00 and the clip is mounted correctly and is much easier to open.
I have this knife with since 2006 when I joined the USAF. Yet, I lost the pocket clip, so that is a bummer. Other then that it's been to Kuwait, Iraq and amongst other places.
Thank you for such a great knife.
I just bought the Gerber Air Ranger, and for the price, you are getting great quality. As an experienced outdoors man and survivalist, I would highly recommend this knife to any one who is looking for a great looking, sturdy knife.
whenever I buy a new knife I want to be sure it can handle whatever I can throw at it and this is one of the best knives that Gerber has made it is very well built not to light but heavy enough to get the job done. I highly recommend this knife
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.
