Paraframe I - Stainless, Serrated

Like all eight knives in the Paraframe series, the Paraframe I is based on the same minimal frame-lock design. 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.

My wife gave me mine a couple of years ago and I always carry it. With a little bit of oil and practice I can easily open it with one hand. Great knife!!

Great knife, but cant open with one hand. The thumb posts don't do anything. Otherwise love it.

4 Good Large Carry Knife Noah - JUL 4, 2014

I am a college student and ROTC cadet who uses his knife for just about everything. I've used my Paraframe for everything from field-dressing small animals to carving wooden sculptures. I used it mainly for cutting general, everyday materials like ropes, 550-cord, and packaging tape. The handle is wide enough that you can get your whole hand around it, but skinny enough you can carry it in your pocket easily.
I loved the positive retention the pocket clip gave me, as I carried it all through every bit training and never lost it, even through low-crawling across asphalt, dirt, and scrubby grass. The edge seemed to hold pretty well, I only had to sharpen it twice in a year.
I didn't like that it took some fiddling to open and lock, although with a bit of oil and some sanding I got it to open one-handed fairly easily.
Overall an excellent knife. I unfortunately had mine stolen, and so I replaced it with the Tanto version of the Paraframe in Oxide Black.
Great knife for the money!

5 Your Title The Shark - JUL 3, 2014

I received this knife as a gift over 5 years ago and have carried it everyday since. It's been an outstanding pocket knife that has endured a significant amount of abuse. I've never had any trouble with opening it with one hand or having it open unintentionally. It's been very smooth. I do have to agree that it does need occasional sharpening, but it takes an edge easily. The clip works well for me and has never hung up even while carrying it in uniform. I did lose one of the small screws that holds the clip, but I will contact Gerber for a replacement. Every bit of 5 stars!


I just got this knife last week in a special edition tin along with the Gerber mini paraframe. The handle is black and the blade is the color of the one in the pic. The knife is just slightly small in my openion and it rides a little high in my pocket. Otherwise, its a good knife from Gerber that seems to be good for edc, possibly hunting, and even extended use. I like it .

5 Great for 5$ let alone the 25$ normal price Nick W - OCT 21, 2013

The local Walmart had it mismarked for 5$ so I figured I would pick it up. Blade comes fairly sharp nothing too extreme and the action is perfect not to tight or too loose. Well rounded knife for the price even if you do pay the full price. Only complaint is that the finish had some blemishes but its a tool can't complain too much.

5 excellent knife Greg - SEP 15, 2013

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.

3 CAN'T HOLD AN EDGE Justin Trudeau - MAY 3, 2013

This thing won't keep an edge and requires being sharpened constantly.

5 Impressive knife George Washington - FEB 24, 2013

It's lasted me for a good several years and it's still going. You just need to sharpen it.

5 boss isaac b - FEB 17, 2013

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 is a very nice knife overall

4 Best $20 I've spent all year! ETZ - NOV 20, 2012

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.

2 Me Ted - NOV 7, 2012

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.

4 great knife for the price Kyle - SEP 14, 2012

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!!!

2 Lumberjack Travis Lang - JUN 11, 2012

This knife sucks. It holds a decent edge, but the screws fall out really easily.

5 AWSOME Knife cesar - JUN 1, 2012

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!...

5 Great Knife. No Issues. KLW - APR 4, 2012

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.

5 None Ryan S - NOV 22, 2011

I've been a huge fan of Gerber blades for 15+ years. My Paraframe is my favorite yet. Light, sturdy, durable.
