In Denmark they say: “A knife-less man is a lifeless man.” Except, you know, in Danish. In any language, the message is clear: A man without a knife is not just unprepared—he’s not fully himself. The Gerber Cohort can help, thanks to a minimalist design that keeps it ultra light and out of sight when carried, but fully capable when necessity rears its head.
Everything You Need, Nothing You Don’t
Sometimes, it’s what’s left out that counts. Stripped of all unnecessary features that might weigh it down, the Cohort features a sleek, anodized aluminum handle, gram-shaving open frame design, and dual thumb stubs for quick, secure one-handed deployment. Slim-bodied, with a distinctive open frame design, this clip folder is an ideal daily carry knife that’s solid in the hand.
Little Things Count
Invisible when you don’t need them, indispensible when you do, the Cohort’s details stand out for their minimalism. The 3-inch fine edge drop point blade cuts, pries and performs on command, while the Liner Lock mechanism holds the blade firmly in place, requiring just a simple and efficient one-handed engagement to release. At 2.6 ounces, it’s featherlight in both your pocket and in use, but it works like a middleweight when needed.
Goes Wherever You Do
A removable pocket clip lets you carry the Cohort easily in your pocket, or secure it to a bag for easy access. A lanyard hole means you can attach the cordage of your choice for added security and easy location.

I've had mine for over a year and it handles well. Design wise i'm still in love with it, just beautiful. The handle material is fragile to any hard knocks leaving it weirdly dented. The blade it self is no surprise, a low quality metal. Nevertheless the blade can take a beating but you will need to constantly sharpen it. It's a 25$ pk that's worth every cent.
To make the opening smoother just loosen the screw very slightly
Great piece, good blade, lightweight, well balanced and super pocket for everyday use.
Great for any activity!
I am an Eagle Scout and have tested the Gerber Cohort knife. I usually go through a lot of knives, yet this knife stays with me. I have had the knife for a few days now and use it a lot. The Gerber Cohort is a knife that you're able to carry in your pocket, with easy access, but can still use it like a large blade. I have an off-brand (Dakota) 4" blade which I have also used; this knife seems to be just too bulky in my pocket. I also own a small, 3 year old Gerber locking blade (both closed and open). This knife has the F.A.S.T. technology yet is too small for doing a real knife's work. I believe that the Corhort knife by Gerber is create for day-to-day projects, small carvings, and can stand the normal wear and tear that a knife normally goes through, at least for a Boy Scout. Lastly, The open concept of the knife is not only great to make for a light weight knife, but also allows for things like sand to fall through it and not get stuck. (I had this happen with my smaller, closed concept Gerber, and it has never worked the same.)
