Ripstop I - Serrated
We built these knives for the non-conformist in you. The Ripstop I & Ripstop II are super-lightweight frame lock concepts that deliver bold strength and high functionality. The weight of the all stainless steel construction knife is made lighter by the intriguing handle and blade design. There's no bulk in the thin, streamlined handle. Dual thumb studs make opening the blade a snap. Closing it is a simple one-handed step.

GOT THIS AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT 2014 HAVE USED IT A FEW TIMES BUT REALLY HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO SHARPEN IT YET . BEING THE HALF PLAIN EDGE IN FRONT AND SERRATED TOWARDS BACK OF BLADE LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BE REALLY HANDY FOR OPENING CARDBOARD BOXES . IT IS VERY LIGHT WEIGHT AND EASY TO CARRY . PLAN ON USING IT AS A WORK KNIFE AND USE WHILE CAMPING. BUT I WOULD SUGGEST A BIGGER LOCK BLADE FOR CUTTING BIGGER ITEM'S LIKE ROPE OR REALLY TOUGH PLASTIC BAGS .
Will not keep an edge! Not recommended for this model. Gerber makes some good knives this isn't one of them.
I got this knife for my birthday a while ago, but I didn't really understand the quality of it at the time. Now, five years later, this knife has been through just about everything over hundreds of boy scout and camp outs including, but limited to: sharpening roasting sticks, with flint to start fires, cutting through paracord countless times, cutting into fingers a couple times (oops), and lots of every day things like opening boxes and such.
Point is, this is the best knife I've ever owned, and am looking at getting another two or three as gifts for friends now
Amazing everyday carry. Very lightweight, and quality you can see and feel. HIGHLY recommended!
First off, the blade itself was strong and sharp. However, the mechanism to lock the blade in place snapped off after only a few uses.
I've always thought Gerber carried the best knives, and that's why I don't buy any other brand. I owned this knife for two years until it snapped in half last night. It was reliable in a pinch, but wouldn't stay sharp for long.
Great blade and opening action. Keeps it's edge well. I wish there was one just like it that was maybe 2 inches longer. 4 1/2 to 5 1/2
I would like new pocket knife and im thinking of getting this. one is it worth it:)
Have had an aluminum fine edge Gerber for years. Got this one in my stocking for Christmas this year! I love it...easy to open and close if you know how Sharp and keeps its edge and easy to sharpen! Great product!
i bought this knife about three years ago. many of my previous knives have fallen apart so i was looking for something that would last. this fit the bill. the reason i am looking for a new knife now isn't because it broke, it's because i lost it...
I was so impressed with this knife that I now have 6. I keep one on each of my life jackets. I wish they had included a lanyard clip at the last frame screw.
I've had this knife for almost 2 years. Great compact knife. My biggest complaint is closing the thing. Near impossible to close it with one hand.
The knife blade itself is awesome. I have no complaints. The the screw that holds the blade to the handle has a nasty habit of coming loose with even minor impacts. This wouldn't be a problem, i'm very hard on my knives, but I cant tighten the screw again because the pocket clip is in the way. I would remove the clip, but the screws holding it in are impossible to find a bit for. If they made the clip easier to remove i would rate this knife 5 stars.
Great small clip knife. I carry it everywhere. Blade holds an edge well, and the serrations cut through just about anything. After a few years of regular use one of the screws came out - we'll see if they send me a new one. Request is in. Still an excellent knife at a great price.
