i got this knife at family pawn for $30. I've had it for 3 years and I have to say, I'm impressed. I'd have gladly paid 50 for it. It takes a razor sharp edge and holds it, the action is very smooth, the grips are still very firmly attached. Its been my every day carry from the day I got it. Couldn't ask for a better knife.
I've been carrying Gerber since I can remember. My older brother has carried the same Gerber for 30 years! This knife is wonderful with its' heft and ease of opening. There was initially a problem with the first knife; but it was replaced with no questions asked. I've handled the "replacement" version called an "Outrigger" and am equally happy should a problem arise for replacement. Great knife, great Company!
I have been carrying knives since I was a kid. and this is by far the best blade I have ever owned. it goes with me everywhere. the clip got bent and fell off and lost first one. my current one got bent as well and last week found this site and asked about a replacement clip since I cant order a new one if I lose this one and they sent me 2 replacement clips. LOVE THIS KNIFE!
I've had this knife for around a month and the rubber is already peeling off. I'd expect for $40 for the knife to at least stay in tact. Other than that it really is a good knife.
this is by far my favorite knife. serrations are great in my opinion, but the fine edge is also available. for reasons unknown to me, they have discontionued it. Seriously go get one on Amazon or ebay. its worth it.
This is by far the best knife I have ever had. It makes me sad that it has been discontinued.
One of the best knifes I have, it is my everyday carry, I never go anywhere with out it. I have like 7 gerber knifes and this one is close to the top, of course my LMF 2 is by far the greatest knife ever made!!
i love this knife so much! i have it next to me right now. love the grips and the fast opening. anybody who says that serrations are useless are WRONG, they add so much to this knife. its my 3rd gerber knife, so great job on this one, keep them comin'!
i bought this knife in may i carry mine everywhere its a great knife i love it keep up the good work :)
I LOVE THIS KNIFE. I got it in february and i hasn't come out of my sight since. Just because I love them so much, I carry it and the Mark II camping every weekend. I have nothing bad to say about this knife. Love the FAST opening system an
I haven't had any issue with the rubber grips. The fast opening did take about a week to learn. I have to admit when the knife isn't in my pocket, it in my hand. I 100% LOVE this knife. I have had it for at least 3 months, and use it nearly every day. Gerber must have fixxed the rubber grips because there is no way mine are coming off.
So all and all, i use it everyday and i can't give a single con.
the way the rubber is molded around the butt of the knife makes the rubber want to fall off. Ive had the knife for about 3 weeks now and have put it in my pocket one time. The rest of the time the knife has been sitting on my night table. The rubber is falling off and the belt clip screws did come loose... but I saved them. If only the knife didnt have that rubber on the handle the way it does it would be a wonderful knife. Ive started the warranty replacment process and I am hoping the will give me the same type of kife without the defective design. I will come back and post what the outcome is. Knowing Gerber Im sure all will go fine.
PS: With a better handle this knife would get 5 stars
I purchased this knife about a year ago and the only problem is about 6 months ago the screws for the belt clip backed out and I lost them and the clip. No other problems though!!!
Awesome in theory. I bought this knife well over two years ago and I am now on my Third. The first one lasted maybe a month of daily use before the rubber grips peeled off. I would have been fine with that until the entire faceplate on one side started falling off. I sent that knife in and got a replacement which lasted maybe 3 months of minimal usage before the safety switch broke and was unable to lock the knife. Very dangerous if you know how well the assisted opening works but still manageable until the faceplate screws started to loosen again. I am now on my second replacement and will follow up when this one falls through.
I bought this knife halfway through last school year and the black grips are already starting to peel off. Dont drop it on accident with it open because it will chip the edge of the blade. I had that happen and luckly it wasn't bad enough that i couldn't shapen it out with my stone. But other wise its great!!!!!!!!!! :)
This was an easy knife to operate with one hand. Never had a problem with the opening and closing of the knife. The rubber grips pulled away from the frame and that was disappointing, but the knife still functioned. Then one screw head broke off and the k
it WAS an amazing knife, untill i was flicking it open one day and it decided to lock open, the button on the side wont budge and it is now just dangerous being open like that
