Paraframe I - Stainless, Serrated

It’s a beautifully simple, open frame knife with a serrated locking blade that is lightweight, easy to clean and opens effortlessly. Built with a smooth stainless steel handle and a clip for secure travel, the Paraframe I is everything that an everyday carry folder should be.

I've had one for ~3 years, and now have two. My favorite knife to carry, opens very easily, is light, and clips well in my pocket.
This thing won't keep an edge and requires being sharpened constantly.
It's lasted me for a good several years and it's still going. You just need to sharpen it.
this knife is your everyday carry around knife that will definatly get the job done.i have learned how to flick the knife open using the thumb stud in three different ways.it is a very nice knife overall
Just bought this bad boy and it's already impressed me. Lost my ol' Winchester knife two weeks ago and was real picky on buying a replacement. Saw this one at Lowe's. Love the design and the blade is tough. Looks like Gerber Gear and I have a bright future ahead.
Solid knife with very little play, but I can't call it easy to deploy. It still roughs up my thumb after thousands of openings.
Maybe I should not have oiled it, but even taking a file to the bit that engages the blade to keeep it closed it is hard to open.
Just broke the tip off mine after abusing it daily for close to two years. It was my everything tool for cutting, prying, screwing, etc. My only complaint is its a pain to clip onto your pocket because of the design of the blade lock. It catches on the edge of your pocket 50-60% of the time. If you can live with that, you'll love this thing. Keeps a decent edge too.
I,m VERY VERY HARD on my knives and this one is great it locks steady it holds a edge great its just a all around awesome knife!!!
This knife sucks. It holds a decent edge, but the screws fall out really easily.
its a very durable knife. and i use it every day wether its cuting wire or many things i use it for it does the job! and the blade is easy to sharpen with another knife or something else. very good tool and its all thanks to gerber!...
I've been carrying this knife for two years now in my front pocket. I'm not sure what the guy who said he cut himself while it was closed was doing, because thats pretty impossible. The fit is very secure, in fact at first it was a little too snug and difficult to open. Within a week or two of use though, it was loose enough to open one handed, but not so loose that it falls open ever. Great all purpose knife with the serrated edge as well.
I've had to sharpen it a couple times, but I use it for a LOT of silly things. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good pocket knife. And I've never even had a single spot of rust or pitting on the blade.
I've been a huge fan of Gerber blades for 15+ years. My Paraframe is my favorite yet. Light, sturdy, durable.
Thank you for making such fine folders.
